    My first clinic told me that. I have a friend who got her twins that way but she is the only one I have ever heard of. Wonder what the stats for that is. My accupuncturist told me of a clint with triplets from a TET (over 40) but that must be really rare!

    Things are getting scary for us. Saw the OB after Nuchal scan came back as high risk and he explained our Downs risk ratio was 1:2. Shiiite. The other trisomys were not so bad 1: 58 and1:63. Don't want to tell family or friends until it's confirmed but felt like I needed to tell somebody. Hope it's ok to put it here.

    Go Wazza! Wish we could clone him so we could all get a decent FS. Mine was an arrogant so and so.
    @faithandhopellove oh no, how terrifying for you, what is your next move? No I was never told that identical twins was more of a risk in IVF. With me the issue was being at risk of OHSS and a twin pregnancy could make that dangerous apparently.

    I heard recently of a lady having an OE baby she conceived at 45 and my cousin's partner is naturally pregnant with first at 44 (15 weeks along and all looking good).
    @Gagingi, my Mother had a baby which she naturally conceived at 45. Dad was 46. Many people were surprised, lol.

    Well, from last night there is still a line, still slightly faint or slightly darker depending on wee dilution. My FMU tends to be quite diluted so I'll wait until SMU before calling today's line if possible. Hopefully it'll start to go one way or the other soon.

    BT is 3 days away.



    Longest 2WW in history @Bongley! Fingers crossed this afternoon brings good news. I'll be stalking and spreading baby dust about for you love

    I was never told directly about the 'twin risk' but I was aware of it from reading about it prior to my IVF journey starting. I think my FS deliberately steers me away from it because of other health issues - high blood pressure etc. Or perhaps he sees how fragile and anxious I am already and thinks two babies might push me over the edge! Either way, I was happy to take his advice to transfer one, and as it turned out my single transfer did give me a BFP. I wonder, would it have been different if I had transferred two to start with? Could the fresh emby I transferred in (and failed to implant) have affected the frozen emby which did implant? Who knows.


    I'm really sorry to hear your test results love. It must be a very worrying time for you and DH. This is something I have done a lot of thinking about of late. We all know there are risks because of our age, but what would I do if I found myself in that boat? You never really think it will happen to you, do you? Of course, it's an entirely personal decision and if you do not want to discuss it that is just fine. Have you considered what you might do if further testing confirms the prediction of the tests? It must be so hard for you love, to work so hard for this and then have everything thrown up in the air at you. I will be thinking of you hon. I hope further testing turns things around for you

    Oh Luv....😦 (((hugs))) What an incredibly stressful time for you both.

    What's your OB recommending?? NIPT testing or CVS/Amnio to know for certain?? I know you really don't want to go down that road.

    If your risk factor is still only based on the BT results from the NT then you're still in with a good chance of a favourable outcome IMO.

    Am sending out a prayer to the Universe that all will end up being ok for both bubs.

    No...I was never told that r.e Identical twins. Yes...I knew there was a very minimal risk factor of twins but not particularly identical twins??? WTF???

    Yes...triplets are even rarer but obviously do happen as evidenced by the client. ID twins could happen on a SET too but the risk of that would be even slimmer IMO.

    @Faithandhopelove - that's very stressful for you. I've been there ( I was 35 at the time) and got a risk factor of 1.2 for downs and 1.3 or something like that for the other two. The baby wasn't the '1'. If you choose to do further testing I hope neither of your babies are the '1' either.

    Eta - I had a CVS. It was fine and I wasn't too worried about the cvs risk as I went to a radiologist who had done thousands of them and never had a problem.

    I had an elective CVS done too & was in very safe hands with one of the best Maternal Fetal Medicine Consultants at the hospital doing mine.

    He'd done thousands of the procedures both at the hospital & for a private imaging place so the risk factors were reduced even more because of his experience.

    In saying that...I only had a singleton pregnancy so can understand the reluctance/anxiety would be even further increased when Preggo with multiples.

    Fingers crossed it's something you won't even need to consider @faithandhopellove xo
