we did, but (numerous failures, loss, success, donor sperm, immune issues)

We didn't get pregnant at all until our 5th DE transfer and I lost that pregnancy. We transferred a total of 16 DE embryos from 5 different egg donors and also added 2 sperm donors (for half of the eggs. The rest were fertilized with DH's sperm and we transferred from both batches.) and immune issue treatment into the mix before we found success with our 6th transfer.
The reason we decided to start transferring so many (something I wouldn't normally recommend) was just that my supposedly perfect lining never let anything implant. After immune treatments I did get pregnant but the embryo never developed. Stopped meds at week 9 and m/c a few days later. The RI then upped my immune treatments and I had a successful pregnancy.
FWIW, if I ever do it again, I won't transfer 3. IMO it's too dangerous, really.
