Sh*t they both split!!

Dr. K's exact words. I can't believe this. I read about this issue all night last night and it does happen-an embryo splitting after the transfer. There are a few cases out there were 2 embryos were transferred and ending up with triplets. Favorite nurse actually said that they had a recent pregnancy with 2 embryos transferred and resulted into triplets.

So what do I do now...I go for another u/s on Tuesday. Favorite nurse said that it is a possibility that one of the 3 will develop a heartbeat...I guess anything is possible at this time. Or it may simply just be a blighted ovum and it will just pass itself. They really can't determine anything until we go for another u/s.

I am not sure how to really comprehend this or react to it. I am scared-I think the chances of being pregnant with quads are really really small, but of course I think about it. The sacs were empty...not even a fetal I think the chances of any of them being viable are really small. So here we go again...waiting for another week. As I said before the waiting is always the hardest part of this situation. I always thought after the u/s things get a little easier...well obviously not.

*hug* I hope the next u/s gives you some peace of mind... but yeah, pregnancy is a lot of waiting. :(

Hang in there hon.

I don't know quite what to hope for for you, MoMo, but I guess it's not quads. I will hope that you are comfortably pregnant with a singleton or twins at your next scan. Hang in there!

(btw blasts splitting is not at all unusual, I'm surprised that your doc is surprised?)

There was a woman here in Houston that had quadruplet boys after transferring two. I think they said the chance was like 1 in 30,000,000 or something.

Well, I hope it all turns out how you want in the end, (maybe twins?) but I'm thrilled for you that you got one nice healthy h/b. Congrats on that. And sorry about the waiting.

eek. I can't imagine that you will end up with quads. That would be INSANE! I honestly wouldn't even worry about that. I imagine that this week is going to feel like a long one! But maybe if you do end up with twins, you will be ok with it ... after being faced with the possibility of quads! hehe. I hope you still see a single heartbeat on Tuesday, as I'm sure that is the best case scenario for you!
