    Such a difficult and personal decision. I think if I were in the situation though, as hard as it would be, I would reduce to try and give the remaining babies the best chance at a healthy life. That is just my opinion for myself. Of course you need to decide what is best for you and your family. Good luck!

    Honestly, I would want to progress.

    BUT I know 5 would be totally impractical for us, impossible even.

    I would ask when the latest date to decide is, and keep going until then. Nature may make the decision for you (as horridly hopeful as that may come across, sorry!).

    That's just me tho lol.
    Yeah it might be worth googling "a miracle unfolding" - they have quads from doing IVF and have tracked their journey online.

    Wow, so much for you to process. If it were me, I would not (I could not)reduce. I am a 'let nature decide' person. The pregnancy may reduce naturally,or may not - but I woukd be always wondering about those babies I reduced. Who they were going to be. If any of the remaining babies didnt make it or had disabilities, I would be wondering if I reduced the 'healthy' ones. Did they look like me or DH? I just couldnt do it & would live a lifetime of regret. Ultimately though, my feelings mean nothing! You have to decide what is right for you &your family. I wish you all the best

    My head would tell me to reduce to 2, my heart would disagree. So I'm not sure tough choices either way

    Another one for preying that the reduction happened naturally. What a difficult situation. Xxx

    I would reduce.

    In my own personal financial circumstances I couldn't bring 5 more children into the future unless we were millionaires!

    A completely personal decision. I think I would hope for a natural reduction but but but ..... What a bloody hard decision to be facing, I can't imagine choosing to reduce nor could I imagine having and raising five children at once especially already having three.

    I really really feel for you xxx

    Such a personal decision, I don't know what I'd do. I guess I would need to weigh the risks against what felt right inside. All the best to you OP
