I would not, and I am someone who has had 3 DE losses along the way... (success, pg, mc)

So, like you, I worried that I would never succeed - and then that I would never succeed again (had 3 losses before our twins, and 4 AFTER our twins and before DD). I DID transfer 3 embryos on day 3, twice, before we conceived our twins and had a BFN and a chemical to show for it - the twins came from a cycle in which we only transferred 2, but they were blasts (and I would never do three blasts - really, one blast is ideal IMO, especially on a fresh). My single embryo transfer that resulted in my DD was the way to go for sure, for us. If it had not worked I would have transferred one on FET, again (and again if necessary). I do think two embryos is reasonable on an FET if you are open to twins, but I would NOT transfer more than two (and this is coming from someone who has done it - I rolled the dice and am lucky all three never stuck. That may be controversial for trip moms to hear but I know my bandwidth and I could NOT have handled, could not handle now, trips - my twins almost didn't make it.)
Ok how's that for opinionated... I really believe we have to take our best shot not just at getting pg, but at giving the child(ren) we have, the healthiest start possible. Even though I wouldn't have minded raising a second set of twins, seeing what even "later" preemies (34w) went through (and continue to go through with lung issues related to prematurity for my DS), I would NOT want to carry them again and see them come early. So since you asked for advice that is my best advice: no more than two. I'd even consider a single blast transfer if the FET stats are very good where you are. And... if PGS is a possibility that would cement it for me - one blast.
GL, Dee. I'll be thinking of you and cheering you on no matter how many you put back. You have a really excellent chance as you were successful before - I just know it will work for you again. Hang in there. Best,
