This is our first DE cycle. Transfer should be sometime next month if all goes as planned, so we have some time. I am having a difficult time deciding on how many envied to tfer. One or two...I am 34 and we did ivf with OE in Jan. Only had one to transfer on day 3. It was 8 cell. I got BFP but m/c at 6 weeks. Twins feels so overwhelming, but I'm fearful if we only implant one it won't stick. It's a proven donor and I believe both recipients from the previous cycle had very high first betas. Do the chances of multiples go up a lot?? I plan on talking to the doctor on Fri about this. We have had so much disappointment over the last three years so part of me wants to play it safe and go for two in hopes that at least one sticks. But that other part of me gets overwhelmed thinking about multiples. Such a hard decision.
