Hi, I’m Geochick.

Welcome to my blog. What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy and spiritual awakening. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

IVF resulting in Twins

I heard the broadcast of this article on the way home from work today, and I found it refreshingly devoid of the inflammatory statements that I've read in other media sources.  Do you feel the same way?

What's interesting, is that even though I didn't do IVF, I certainly would have gone for two embryos if I had.  I hadn't ever had a hint of a BFP in any of the acupuncture or IUI's.   If a doctor had mentioned, "well, one embryo would be such and such chance and two embryos would be some amount of chance close to one embryo", I totally would bet on two.  Besides, so many people have twins that you almost don't even think about it being a problem.  I'll bet it takes a long time to get our heads wrapped around one embryo transfer being the same odds of pregnancy as two.

p.s.  No mini-vacation as of yet.  S really didn't feel it, and my friend who has a new boyfriend (eek, can't wait for details!)  is super busy, and it's not going to work out this time.
