    @Cue I understand your predicament. I think if you did mentally commit to another baby and it didn't work, you would have to reassess whether you could let it go, or whether you wanted to try again. I was prepared for my transfer to not work more so than work given the odds, so for me, if it hadnt worked, I would not have stimmed again to go for #3. We are so lucky that it worked out, but for me, it was more a decision about what I could or couldn't live with (destroy v let fate decide). I never intentionally planned on having 3 - although I feel blessed that I have and am able to. You can keep embies on ice for quite some time, so, you are lucky that the decision can be delayed and the embryo remains the age at which it was concieved (if that makes sense). Take your time and listen to your heart. Best of luck whatever you decide

    Oh for gods sake people. My post wasn't aimed at Zombies post. I was actually thinking of my friend who has 3 special needs children whom I spent the morning with yesterday. Geez...

    Default 3rd? Is it a bad idea?

    Lay off Zombie, she didn't say anything about it, it was all me.

    Moving on...
    I love y'all however I think if folks really stepped back and took an objective look at this thread they might see some double standards being applied that really is blind support of one member at the unfair expense of another.

    Kimberly has to dot her I's and cross her T's in every.single.post, while no one mentions how Zombie's sarcastic response may have helped spiral the thread off track.

    People can jump in to defend Zombie however Kimberly should be big enough to speak for herself and anyone who speaks on her behalf needs to move on.

    I am a fan of everyone in this thread. And I don't mean to single out yourself or anyone else ... I am just worried that the constant and collective nitpicking on Kimberly (due to past errors) is getting a little ridiculous and (IMO) verging on bullying.

    Im glad you edited your post.

    Might be time for us in the BH community to start doing some of that "lifting eachother up instead of beating eachother down/go womanhood" bizzo we all preach about?

    I grew up with three siblings which is pretty rad, we are all really close. We never really had any cousins so it was good to have a few siblings plus now that we are grown ups it's nice having them and seeing them go on to have their own relationships and families. I think that's a factor too maybe, if you have a third, they won't always all be babies

    It's probably why I'll try for three if we are lucky enough.

    Yay I have a fan! Ok but seriously, let's just drop it. Kimberly clarified the context of her post (spending the morning with her friend). I'm cool with that. I don't hold grudges and don't usually nitpick others. I also don't have any special interest in Zombie (no offense), so it not about taking sides.

    Plus, it's my thread and I'll be narky if I wanna be
