So at the start of my cycle I had 14 follicles and all were excited with that number for me - 39. Only 7 responded to stims though. 6 eggs retrieved, 4 mature and two fertilized. The other two multi ferted?? - anyone heard of that? So now I am fretting, and have developed bronchitis from restless sleeping and germy coworkers. I could desperately use stories of having two or less to transfer. Thanks and good luck to everyone else!

's to you Krista, big 's to you. I can imagine how stressed you must be feeling right now!!!
I've never heard of multi fertilization. Do they mean that 2 sperm got into the egg to fertilize it? If so, yes, I've heard of that- it happened to us.
You're doing a 3dt with your 2 little beauties, right? I've always had small numbers of eggs to work with, & I've seen quite a few 1 embryo transfer success stories, so you can still definitely be successful with this transfer!! Don't give up hope yet, ok?!!
's to you & loads of 's for your little fighters that they'll grow to be beautiful embryo's & babies in the next 9 months!!

Please do keep your chin up, and feel better! I had 21 eggs in my first cycle, 18 mature, then the numbers kept going down. Out to day 5 we only had 2 to transfer, and we got pregnant with my two year old Bryce.
This time we had 11 follies, 7 mature, 3 fertilized, and transfered all three. A grade a, b and c... we'll see ! (currently in 2ww).
Moral of the story is, yes there are success with those rates. Please don't give up hope
