So that means the chances of multiples go up, how do you feel about that? Of course a little nervous, but it is wonderful to think of having more than one bundle of joy for my first pregnancy.
Do you want multiples? Gosh, at this point I don't have any preferences...I just want to see a BFP!
What is the most you think you can handle? Triplets
Do you think you would do selective reduction? Yes...I think we would choose to do it if we were pregnant with more than triplets.

Just a side note since you seem to be new to IUI...most of the time (especially if you are on fertility drugs), you have ultrasound monitoring to see how many follicles you might have each cycle. If you are absolutely opposed to higher-order multiples, you can cancel a cycle if you have too many follicles. Some doctors (like the first one I had), won't do the IUI if you have too many follicles developing. So, even with fertility drugs, there are some precautions you can take.
