Our expert says:
In general one would expect further growth of the embryos in most cases. However there are some situations were embryos might continue development after a lag phase. The important question is why were the embryos frozen at the cell stages that they were in as it is more common to freeze embryos at 8 cells or beyond which then allows for better survival and cleavage. Perhaps the embryo grade to start with was sub-optimal and necessitated early freezing. The overall prognosis in this situation is not very good but never the less there is still a small possibility of a pregnancy.
