My husband and I will be using a surrogate to help create our family. We have two embryos and it's the only 2 we will ever have of our own. So we are thinking really hard on whether we should take our chance and transfer both embryos to our surrogate, or do one now only to transfer our other embryo another time. The problem is that we are struggling with the idea of that we may not be able to afford to go thru surrogacy process second time around. So I'm doing so much research on the complications of twin pregnancies and the risk factors in case we decide to take our chances and transfer both. We would love to have twins, but I'm concerned of the complications that come with carrying twins. We have to also consider our surrogates health. So I'm doing some research and wondering what impact of the health of surrogate makes when carrying twins and any chance if it reduces the possibility of a premature delivery and/or non complicated delivery.
I have been doing a lot of reading on twins and premie statistics. I've read that the healthier the mom the less likely she will deliver before 37weeks. When I say healthy I'm referring to eating very healthy and doing prenatal yoga. Of course someone who has a healthy bmi below 35 with no health concerns, hasn't had any health issues such as previous pregnancy complications before, or doesn't have any minor blood clotting disorders or autoimmune issues of any kind. I've also read that that eating certain foods to help keep the inflammation in the body down plays a big role in triggering issues that can lead to premature complications.
I know it's really unpredictable and really just most likely by chance, but in curious to know if you can reduce the risk of premature labor. So I'm curious to know if there is anyone here who leads a healthy lifestyle that has had any complications with their pregnancies?
