    Not certain that anyone here has specifically said they were trying for twins. Each of my Aus transfers was a double to increase the chances of even one taking. My own egg transfer that resulted in a pregnancy was a double that resulted in a single pregnancy.

    In CT we did a double transfer as we only had two viable embryos (none spare) and we didn't want to transfer one, not have it take and then have to turn around and go back to use the second embryo. We were happy to achieve a viable pregnancy and look at the fact that the result was twins as a side effect rather than our goal.

    Each person/couple has difference circumstances, preferences and background that will drive their decisions and the single or double transfer choice should be theirs to make with the appropriate advice.

    Thanks @KMP. Sorry if this is a stupid question but how do you get scripts written from London? I looked at a contact of London that I read about on a previous thread but I thought I could only buy vitamins.

    I certainly didn't want twins, but after so many failures and pushing $60k oop we were getting desperate for even one to stick. After all those failures I would have bet my life that two wouldn't stick, yet here we are. It still surprises me how everyone in my life thinks it's so exciting and perfect that we are having twins. Wtf? I've thought all along that it's a bit of a disaster but I'm warming to it finally. I know all the risks, but I'd much rather have two (by mistake) than none. And we just couldn't afford four trips to CT to try all four individually. You do what you have to do,

    That is why single transfer is done here. It's outcome based. I'd never transfer more than one embryo for this reason. I could not afford to lose work and could not run a businesx.
    Good for you but for many if this is their last shot they will throw everything at it. At 15-16k a pop not many can afford to go more than once.

    Funny thing happened ... Last night I was watching Jamie Oliver on TV and he got some chicken marylands and drizzled some oil on them ... made me go and have a quiet vommie in the loo. DH couldn't believe that just looking at chicken on TV made me sick!!!! So cooking shows are out ... I've lost 5kg since BFP, I'm hoping I can make that back up but watching people cook isn't doing it for me!

    Did/has anyone else dropped weight from their morning sickness?

    OMG Jennski you made me laugh! Not only have I also lost at least 5kg, but the list of foods that I can't tolerate continues to grow. I'm up to daily barfs, and just yesterday hit a new record of twice in one day!!! Not at all complaining really, although will take a reprieve anytime soon 😜.

    Wishing you well and hoping your reprieve comes soon too!

    I am having twins. I'm scared but so grateful. We are in our 40s and tried for a good few years, natural, herbs, ivf with no go. Cape Town was literally always going to be a one shot deal for us. So we were very fortunate to get our wish. I know so many who would love to be in my place also. They have tried heaps more than us with no result. We always wanted more than one child and now we have it in one go. I don't think it's taking more time of work for me as my maternity leave will be only once instead of twice. Everything we have to go through with two kids teething, tantrums etc will happen together. Maybe some think we are crazy but we are over the moon and could not be happier. That's just us though. Everyone is different

    @Jennski, I know the feeling, not the ms, but the disbelief. I'm finally starting to ease off with looking at my belly in the mirror and asking DP if I look pregnant, not just fat. It's taken a loooong time for the disbelief to dissipate and really, I still can't believe it. We seem to have never been lucky so it's hard to get used to. I truly believe the prednisone stopped the ms for me.
