We have 6 embryos on ice… Sound weird?

We start our next round of IVF soon.

People often ask me “what happens if all 6 turn into little people?”

“Ummm… we have 8 kids?”

When you decide that conception is the start of life then you don’t have an option to dispose of the embryos, so we need to give each of them a shot.

It may mean we have 8 kids (a bridge I will cross when I come to it) but more likely we will have at best one more.

Embryos have a 70% chance of unfreezing ‘live’ (4 of the 6 will survive the thaw) and then only a 20% chance of successful implantation so only 1 of those 4 is likely to make the cut on a good day.

I am really content with two kids. and that would be my idea number. I reckon I could also be happy with 3 or 4 or even 8 if it came to that.

I guess we’ll know soon!
