    Wow it sounds like you have had a bit of bad luck lately... But who knows, maybe these are signs of good things to come?! Here's hoping! Less than a week to go for the BT!! Almost there

    As for 2 embryos at a time, I personally don't see the advantage to it, especially if you've got 2 perfect embryos but your uterus is not in optimum condition due to meds, hormones and whatever stresses there are in life. There might be greater chance that you'll have one embryo stick, but I feel like there's also greater risk of losing either both from extraneous circumstances or putting yourself through the stress and risk of twins. As amazing as twins sounds for someone who has struggled for so long for a single pregnancy, I dont think a lot of people realise the risks involved with having twins. I mean surely if you have two embryos that are meant to turn into babies then they would turn into babies at two seperate transfers.... If that makes sense. Sorry I don't mean to turn you or anyone away from that possibility, it's just my personal thoughts on the matter. I hope I haven't offended anyone 😁

    Not at all. I asked to get a balanced view from people who are going through the same thing. It's easy to get caught up in the moment and start making decisions with only the end goal in mind, not other factors.

    I appreciate all the feedback.

    @GTBB my specialist said new research showed when transferring 2 embryos and one has any issues/abnormalities it can effect the other healthy one so they will both fail :/

    @GTBB we transferred 2 embies (3dt) and this is my first cycle. My RE suggested we opted for 2, I didn't even hesitate to consider 1 as I assumed she would know best...with hindsight maybe 1 would have been better, but I am here now and just crossing all fingers that at least 1 sticks.

    Due to my crappy AMH level they only got 4 in total, 3 fertilised. Of the 2 transferred back 1 was slightly fragmented. The remaining fertilised egg didn't make it to freezing.

    Would you & your partner be ok with a multiple pregnancy?

It's nice to be on the same timeline with you. I've had the same problem with sleep. I'm thinking of getting restavit. They're over the counter and they are category A so safe for pregnancy. Having not enough sleep makes me so much more emotional. Big hugs and keep strong. X
    Right back at you @apples xxx

    I mentioned this earlier about twins, i have a group of women who I was on this site with in a ivf due date forum, there are 3 sets if twins, 2 sets are totally fine and one set were born at 27 weeks, they not only spent over 100 days in NICU, they both got infections in hospital, needed surgeries, one has crionic lung disease and motor issues and the other is developmentally delayed also, their poor mother has been through the ringer and i really feel for her, there was nothing g wrong with these babies in utero and if she was carrying a singleton she would have most likely carried to term, the health issues associated with twins and premature birth is very scary! The leading cause to cerebral palsy is prematurity, i spent tge first 6 months of my boys life believing he had cerebral palsy and even at age 1 and walking we are still seeing a physiotherapist so i know the heartbreaking feeling of looking at your child wondering if they are ever going to walk..... at the end of the day us IVF mums have been through enough without having to be worried about our children's health! We all in vision this life for our children, them growing up and bring whatever they dream to be, im not saying a child with CP can't live a "normal" life but it certainly makes it hard on them. Sorry to be a Debbie downer but after I have seen the heartbreak the mums of prem babies go through i wish that apon nobody and want everyone to be aware of the risks, because I had no idea that's for sure! Heck I would have thought 3 babies would have been fun!

    Welcome @Nataloosh I'm so sorry to hear about what happened with your embryos. Sadly I have heard of that happening to others, it just seems so cruel. I really hope it works out much better for you this time around.
    @mrsthomo hope everything went well today!
    @woof5105 are you still set to go in tomorrow? Good luck!
    @MrsSMS I have a friend who did fertility treatment (not Ivf) and she did two triggers one after the other so released two eggs. Her and hubby got busy and she's now pregnant with twins. I'd never heard of triggering twice before. Last time she did 2 triggers, it produced her son so just the one bub that time.
    @Mink I'm with Genea too so wasn't given the choice on how many to transfer but I agree that they might be protecting their success rates. They have a good take home baby stat and they say that doing double transfers could drop that. It's also been mentioned to me how a double transfer can equal 3 or even 4 babies, lol! I think they prefer 5 day embryos so long as you have enough to try and get go 5 days. We had 6 at day 3 so we went to day 5. Another girl at the EPU got 3 eggs and even though she was with Genea also, they said if that they may have to do a 3 day transfer if she loses any.
    @GTBB good luck with your decision, it's a tough one!
    Its honestly so hard to know, you really need a good crystal ball at the moment.
    Since it wasn't an option to do a double transfer for me, I wasn't faced with that decision. Two years ago when doing my fresh cycle, I did think what I'd do if they offered it. I would have to have given it a lot of thought but I reckon being childless back then and with 6 x 5 day embryos, I would have done a double transfer. I would have assumed that this would have increased my chance at getting pregnant and would have been thrilled with either 1 or 2. I also don't plan on having 6 kids.
    Now two years later, we have a toddler and 4 frozen embryos (1 early blast was discarded) and I would only do single transfers but mostly because I already have 1 young child but also because 3 of our 4 frozen are the same quality as our daughter so hopefully that means at least one of those should work on it's own. I'm aiming to complete our family without having to do another full cycle so I'd rather not throw two in each time, which means only two more FET opportunities.
    On the flip side, a girl in my first cycle group has recently been faced with the 1 vs 2 decision. When she asked for opinions, some of the ladies in my last cycle group mentioned something about one embryo piggy backing off the other. Almost like one embryo can help the other but not necessarily implanting itself so you get one baby.
    Seriously though, who knows?! What @Lexy123 or @Mink said also sounds valid, which means we are back to whether you'd get twins, one or none, lol. It seems like no experts would even really know what to advise as I think the success is really up to the individual and whether the embryos and conditions are compatible.
    I guess this just means that it's really up to you and your hubby to decide. If you are open to the idea of twins, then maybe look into info on pregnancies with multiples and decide whether it's for you.

    As for the fresh vs frozen discussion, I'd heard some say frozen is slightly more successful but I'm sure I read an article (not sure where now) that claimed that frozen transfers were almost at the point of being just as successful as fresh, which made it seem like the opposite was true. I think in reality, the stats are pretty similar, which is why FS do both depending on the embryos you have.
    I've only ever done one cycle with a fresh transfer and it was a success for me. I would have been devastated to not transfer straight away. I guess we will see how my first ever frozen transfer goes.

    I had my first BT today and the clinic called to say my levels are low so ovulation isn't imminent. I expected that given I'm on cd11 and my cycles are mostly 30 days. I have to go in to check again on Monday morning.
