Hey Kim,

I just wanted to share with you that I just got off of the phone with our RE's office and was informed that because we are doing a 5dt instead of a 3dt they will not transfer anymore than 2 (though they would have transferred 3 if done at day-3). So, I asked "Why?" (really just to try to get an answer--not necessarily because I wanted 3) and she said that they consider 5d-transfers as more likely to take and that though they didn't mind me having twins, they preferred to keep the chances of higher order multiples down.

So, in essence, I guess the decision is kinda made for us. They're giving us the option of even transfering just 1, but DH and I aren't comfortable with that so we're definately transferring 2.

I'll keep ya posted.

Sorry I missed your post. Usually I am on at work but had to work today.

Well, at least that takes the decision out of it. I kinda hope my Dr. does that cause I am a little nervous about transferring three but I know that if given the option I probably will cause if it idn't work I would always wonder what if?

Oh the things we put ourselves through....

Thanks for the post and I will talk to you soon.
