Hi ladies, I have a question about having twins after a singleton and I think this is the right area to post. We require IVF to have babies. So far it hasn't been too challenging IVF-wise as we achieved our first BFP after our first transfer which resulted in our DD. We did however, transfer two, but she was the only one that took.
So we are staring down the barrel of IVF again in January. I asked my husband, how many babies do you really see us having? His answer, 3. I thought I would only ever want 2 but I have this deep down feeling that 3 is for us. This was before I asked him as well!
So knowing all of this, we are considering transfering two embryos with our next cycle in January. There is part of me that is very scared of the thought of twins (with a toddler), but then the other part wonders if this is the 'blessing in disguise' with IVF. I strongly believe in 'what is meant to be, will be' meaning that if we transfer 2, we could very well end up with a singleton pregnancy again, or unfortunately as IVF can often turn out, a BFN.
So given my situation, and given YOUR experience coping with a toddler and twins, would you put two embryos back as well?
I guess I am trying to ask in the nicest way possible, in hindsight if you could have controlled falling pregnant with twins, would you reduce the risk, as best possible by only transfering one?
thank you to everyone in advance.
