I hope you might be able to help with my dilemma. We are about to embark on our 5th and final IVF cycle (my second fresh). I know that this will probably be our last cycle, so my dilemma is twofold:
- I always wanted 2 or 3 children, however at this stage that dream seems unlikely;
- I am afraid of transferring 2 embryos, although this will probably be my only chance at having two children. I figure, fertility and pregnancy isn't exactly my body's strong points, so I feel I would be tempting fate by transferring 2 embryos and I'm terrified of something going wrong. I have only ever transferred one embryo at a time previously because of this fear.
I am just so undecided about transferring two! I want to enjoy pregnancy but would be so anxious and worried if I were having twins - just hoping everything goes ok. But to have twins would also be the most wonderful thing to ever happen to me.
Has anyone felt the same way as me, but been brave (or silly!) enough to transfer two, and actually had twins? How did you get past the fear? What helped with your decision?
Any thoughts greatly appreciated, thanks.
