Blossom, you have every right to think it through thoroughly! I think many people don't. Personally, As much as I would love twins I wouldn't do a double transfer because I know my body wouldn't cope with twins. It barely coped with a singleton and I spent way too much time in the hospital predelivery for my liking. We only just got to term (37w5d) as it was and still spent 10 days in hospital post c section. You will make the right decision for you and your family. Xoxo
Blossom from looking at your signature, this is your third transfer right? I would go with two. I am up to transfer number 5 and we are transferring two this time. I always let me FS talk me out of it but this time I am sticking firm.Yes the chance of getting BFP only increases chances of success by 5% but for me 5% is still better odds and I personally would rather have twins then no baby at all. Of course in saying that it is a very personal decision. BTW I have transferred two before and got a BFN so transferring two can also mean you may still get a BFN.
So AF showed yesterday just waiting for my clinic to call and let me know if I can start to stim or not. If we get the go ahead then EPU will prob be in about two weeks time. It was funny but this is the first time that when AF came my heart dropped I felt so sad I don't want to be doing IVF again but I am going to force myself to do it for the sake of getting it over and done with this year. DH and I have decided we only have enough in us for two more cycles so I want to do one now and the next one in August and then if we are still unsuccessful we will be able to relax, take a break and move on and try to accept that we just weren't meant to have children.
Hi to others and new ladies sorry for no personals I have lost track of the thread and who's what and where but I will read back and catch up on later on. xo
Oh Soques, touching story.
Blossom, it is good that you are making/have made an informed decision. Hugs! I'm sure it will be the right decision and I have everything crossed that it will work out for you!
I remember a friend of mine saying when she got naturally pg, how she thought she was going mad POASing once a week for the first 6 weeks. She didn't know I was pg at the time and I was thinking omg, I've done six in a week!
