So that means the chances of multiples go up, how do you feel about that? I'm actually pretty ok with this possibility. The only thing I am nervous about are the complications of a twin/triplet pregnancy.


Do you want multiples? Yes and no. Yes because it has been so emotionally draining going through all the fertility treatments...I would love to be blessed with two and not have to do this again. On the other hand-I would be very concerned about the risks of a twin/triplet pregnancy (early labor, miscarriage, complications from prematurity, etc etc etc)


What is the most you think you can handle? At the VERY most-triplets. But I think I would need my mom to move in with me for awhile


Do you think you would do selective reduction? I wish I could say no-but if all of my babies are at risk, and if I'm at risk, DH and I would have to seriously consider it....I pray that we are never in this situation...
