  • I have a friend that just wants one baby but is having a hard time deciding to transfer one or two embies. How did some of you decide how many to put in? I put in two and three. I, of course, wanted a whole gaggle of kids.

  • I put in two the first time convinced I would have twins and scared to death that if I put in three I'd have triplets....when that didn't work I only had three left and decided that I might as well go for it-glad I went with all three! I think the age of the ebryos and the woman plays a part too...mine were blasts, so they had a higher chance of taking, but then again I'm 40 so I had a lower chance of concieving....lots of variables.

  • Yep...I didn't really feel it until I got pregnant-Ha! I have several friends around the same age who just had babies...most are trying for a second....one friend is 44 got pregnant the old fashioned way and has an 8 month old. She told me when she learned she was pregnant she was sad and grieved her freedom and past life- now that the baby is here she is scared to death that she won't be able to have another...I keep hearing stories like that and it makes me even more excited to have this little bean....

  • Hey Leslie-
    My Dr. helped me w/ the question. The first time I put in 3, something to do w/ the not so good eggs helping out the better eggs, does that make any sense. I was nervous and scared of triplets or at least the dh was, but this second time, I did not hesitate to put all 3 in, and one took. I will be 37 tomorrow...so I guess age is a factor for quality of eggs. But if I were her I would put both in. Good luck to her...when does she have to decide? BTW I would have taken twins in a heartbeat.
