At age 38 with 9 good quality day 5 embryos, what percentage would be normal (based on the ststistics)?

On average 89% of patients will have at least one normal embryo; overall 33% of embryos should be normal.

At age 35, I did one fresh IVF cycle which resulted in 2 high quality (I believe 5AA and 5AB) 5-day embryos and 2 non-graded 5 day embryos. I elected to have 2 separate single embryo transfers at the Redondo Beach location from this retrieval and now have two healthy children. We still have the 2 remaining non-graded embryos frozen and I am considering PGS to see if either of them are normal. Would you recommend this? What are the odds that I would have 3 or 4 normal embryos in one retrieval? How does the cost of the testing compare to a frozen transfer? I know I do not want to go through another retrieval, so these two little ones would be the most I would test/transfer.
