I don’t know why, but now that I am actually ON medication in preparation for our next IVF, I have become fixated on the question of whether we’ll transfer one or two embryos. (This is not a new worry – see this post for more.) I know that we are months away from having to make a decision, and I know that there will be specific factors in place that will make one decision or the other make better sense (number of embryos, embryo quality etc.), but I can NOT stop thinking about it. I think it might have to do with the fact that several of my fellow bloggers – the few that successfully got pregnant with IVF – are pregnant with twins! I was brushing my teeth this morning after getting out of the shower and looking at myself in the mirror, and realized how BIG I would get if I was carrying twins. Not that that’s a deciding factor, obviously, but it just made it feel very real. I was like, “wow, I wouldn’t be able to reach the medicine cabinet if my stomach was that big!!” LOL. Not to mention the worries of premature babies and other health issues…my mind is whirling.
To any of you ladies currently pregnant with twins, or who have decided to transfer two embies…HELP! What made the final decision for you? I know that there’s always the fear, but do you feel comfortable with your decision?
