    TWINS  ;D
     
    12. How many FETs did you have before getting a BFP?
    This was our first FET, but had two failed fresh cycles and then conceived naturally and had our DS. This FET was trying for a sibling, opted for 2 embryos as previous cycles had 2 embryos and failed.
     
    13. Did you have any cramps after transfer?
    No, but did feel a little unwell and went to bed for 3 days to ensure success.

    14. Did you spot after transfer?
    A little immediately afterwards.

    Our twins arrived on 13 December 2010, 5 weeks early by emergency c-section due to pre-eclampsia toxemia. I was hospitalised at 31 weeks and suffered oedema which made me put on 3 stone in 4 weeks (5 stone in total). Our twin girls are non-identical and weighed 4lb 5.5oz and 3lb 15oz and were in SCBU for 2 weeks. I remained in hospital for 1 week post natal and was on blood pressure medication for 6 weeks. We have all now recovered and our beautiful girls are thriving, active little one year olds and their 3 year old brother adores them.
     
    Keep believing it will work and it will. Good luck x
