Our babies are only 3 months old so we're not there yet, but if we decide to try again we will definitley choose an ESET. Good luck!

Congrats on the twins - ours are now 17 months and I know how trying the first few months can be....
thanks for your response :)

Hi Allycat,

I have 2 year-old twins and we will be doing ESET for our frosties. Even though the odds of another set of twins are really low, I don't want to risk it again. Too risky for the babies and it wouldn't be fair my existing children to have me out of commission for 6 months like I was last time.

It was an easy decision for us because with FET, there isn't much downside to unthawing and transfering only one at a time. Just the extra time and cost of doing more transfers if needed. If I was doing a fresh cycle, I would base my decision on the quality of the embies. If I made it to blast, I would do ESET for sure. But if embie quality was low or we had to transfer at day 3, I might still transfer 2 again.

Best of luck!
