    Default 5 heart Beats!

    Congratulations, although I imagine very scary as well as exciting.

    I would reduce, but it doesn't matter what I would do, it only matters what is right for your family. Good luck with your decision x

    There is no right or wrong unfortunately. I guess since you already have 3 other kids (not sure on ages) you need to think how you could go with special needs children if it were to happen. God I sound horrible writing that. Think about what plans you could have in place to cope if say 2 of them needed extra care?

    What sort of frame do you have? If you are a small build that could factor in too. I'm a large frame so there would be more room for babies.

    I would do some research on what the odds are of having 5 healthy babies.

    I know it's hard not too think about all the options, but right now I think it's really early and you should just wait and see what happens and then obviously look more into your options about continuing or reducing and the risks that come along with both choices when you and the drs are more confident about your situation.

    It should be pointed out that she lost the remaining baby in a stillbirth. It had nothing to do with complications from the reduction. Though, of course, the reduction left her with only one baby before the worst thing imaginable happened and she was left with no bub in her arms.

    I personally could never have a reduction. I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I did.
    For you. I think you really need to spend lots of time research the risk and benefits of both reducing and not reducing. But most importantly you need to do some real soul search and make sure you are 100% happy with your decision. No matter which path you take it will be bloody hard on you. So I am sending lots of hugs.
    I would look at seeing a councillor to help you work through your feelings through your journey.

    Omg such a hard decision! It totally depends on your situation and if it was me I wouldn't reduce and leave it to Mother Nature cause I only have 1 other child. I would then get myself a you tube account connected to a Facebook page and document key moments to maybe generate income and perhaps a give a little page? 5 babies won't be cheap.
    That's just me tho lol.
