yes, I agree with the other posters (friend's OE pregnancy mentioned)

I have a 38-year-old friend who recently did OE IVF for the 3rd time. They got 13 eggs. 9 fertilized. They quickly transferred the 2 that were still growing on day 3. None of the others made it. She had REALLY wanted to transfer only one but because they seemed to be of such poor quality, the RE convinced her to transfer both.
Her twins are due in 4 months.
The thing is, they can guess but they can't know which embryos can make it. And many, many REs think the mother's body is the safest place for them to grow. Your RE was playing it safe, but that's what you would want him to do.
