Here's the scoop:
- first FET gave us our DS (transferred 2 embryos, lost one twin around 7 weeks)
- TTC #2; first FET (single transfer) resulted in a miscarriage at 6 weeks
- FET #2 (single transfer) ended in a chemical pregnancy.
We have 2 blasts left (I believe of fair quality). was sent for recurrent preg loss testing and should have results soon, but my doctor is leaning towards egg/ embryo quality issues.
Here is my dilemma, given that our remaining embryos are fair quality and our unknown issues, my RE has said that he wouldn't hesitate transferring both embryos. I'm honestly just not sure how comfortable I am about purposefully increasing our odds of twins. Part of me feels like we were a bit ignorant (and likely desperate to increase our odds) the first time, or maybe it's because the risks this time not only could impact my DH and me, but now our son as well (I'm thinking along the lines of hospital bed rest, etc.). My RE said the odds of having live birth twins is about 12% (can't remember how he reached these numbers), but for my age the odds of miscarriage are only 10% and we hit those twice. I don't know how I feel about putting all our eggs in my basket for a last chance, but the thought of increasing the odds of a pregnancy weighs on me too.
I just am starting to feel so torn. And advice, stories, or experiences....
