after ivf this year, i was pregnant with triplets. at week 14 problems were discovered. the identical twins had twin to twin transfusion syndrome. at week 19 we lost the recipient twin. at week 26 i gave birth to twin girls weighing 1lb 15oz & 1lb 10oz. after 10 weeks in the neo natel unit, we lost the smaller twin, chloe to multi organ failure. we now have a beautiful baby girl at home. she weighs 7lb now. she is quite likely to have a few health issues as she gets older.
if i were to recommend ivf, i would say only have 1 embryo transfered. the likelyhood of having more than 1 baby is high & the problems increase so much for multiple births. the pain we have suffered losing our chloe will stay with us forever. the pain she suffered, is quite unbearable for me to describe.
good luck to anyone having ivf.
