I'd lean towards reducing, I think, if I were in that situation.

Its a heart wrenching decision, no doubt. I hope that doctor learns a lesson and will discontinue the practice of placing so many embryos in his patients.

And chance does not predict what will happen in the future, it reports on patterns of what has happened in the past.
