Any success stories with just one embryo transfered?

Hi - we just cycled again and only made 1 embryo which got put back in yesterday.
Has anyone had any joy with just one? I know that stats are lower and our consultant was trying to persuade me to have 2 put back in during stimms due to this but with a 16 month old, 3 step children and a husband who works away I wasn't convinced. We were going to do blastocyst but things didn't work out and we had this little one put back in after 2 days.
I'd love to read any success stories if anyone has any?

Hi Moominsmummy - good luck too, you! I'm testing on 9th May, which is actually 2 weeks and 2 days after transfer. Unsure why they gave me that date now..I'm sure I'll do my own test much earlier though, I did last time even though they tell you not to! When are you testing?
Thanks Notanotter - your mate must be shattered! I swore I wouldn't have any more when mine was a few months old but now I'm dying for one..

my testing date is 4th May - also 2 weeks and 2 days after embryo replacement
can't believe consultant was trying to persuade you to put 2 back in - they are supposed to be cutting back on multiple transfers. Mine was quite reasonable when I said to only put one back in but they were all a bit shocked at the decision and it did throw them for a while
will try to resist testing before the day and will try to ignore any symptoms - have been v hungry and have indigestion for last week but that's all after the sedation which just made me sooooo hungry when i woke up.
trying not to comfort/distraction eat either

my friend had 2 eggs put back in and one of those split!!!!! She just gave birth to triplets last week, one egg doesn't always mean one baby

I've just realised I never updated this thread...it worked! 18 months ago. So for anyone else out there - keep the faith. Elen is a bonny, sturdy little girl and an absolute joy. x

wishing- same thing happened to my friend last year! Two embryos, had triplets. They're fab!
