I was 35 and we got 7 eggs. 3 of which fertilized and were all 8 celled with no fragmentation. We put all 3 back and voila.....twins! I also heard quality not quantity. I know it would be neat Leslie, but it sounds as though you didn't get very good quality eggs? Maybe you should keep looking? Although it only takes 1 and you did get Carly

Age 29 during cycle, don't know how many, but know 17 fertilized, and I hyperstimmed all over the place. I was taking fertility herbs prior to the cycle though.

Is that what I should do or is hyperstimming all over the place a bad thing? I can get acupuncture and stuff.

Hyperstimming is not a good thing. Most of the times it means you can't do a fresh transfer. All the embryos would have to be frozen for at least a month until you can cycle again. Sometimes your cycle is cancelled before retrieval, sometimes you wind up in the hospital. Not a good thing.

If a genetic sibiling is a big deal to you then have the clinic contact the donor. And what would be the worst thing if you used a different donor? Nothing. We already know how much you love Carly and there is no genetic link to you.

All true. Not that big of a deal to get the same donor, just thought it would be neat. I'm really leanign towards trying myself!
