I personally think I'd freak out.....I'd get used to it and eventually be excited, but I'd be freaked at the beginning.

I would lose it completely I don't even want to think about it. Reading this thread makes me hyperventilate!

lol!! Julia!!!

I think I'd be scared but happy at the same time! Since I just got used to the idea of having a fourth, it would take a while to process having a fifth at the same time. I do have to admit that I think it's very cool, to carry multiples. Though, I'm not ignorant to the risk. It would be pretty scary all around, but such a double blessing too!

Oddly enough, we'd be really excited. I'd love to have 4 kids, but I'll be 38 when I deliver this one, so I don't want to go for a 4th. But, if we had twins this time, we'd be all set!

I'd freak for sure at first.. but after an hour or so.. I'd probably be fine with it. Stressed.. but I would handle it.

Oh I'd freak out! But we'd be pretty excited too. We want 3 kids so that would finish us up!

I know what you mean! I think DH secretly wants twins so he keeps saying things like when we DTD now, that he gave me twins!

If we were pg with twins, DH would be getting snipped before they were born!!

I would be so scared and excited. It’s hard enough with just one.

I would love to have twins!! I know it sounds crazy and I'm sure it would be a bit overwhelming at first but I would be so excited!

My Mom is a twin and DH has a nephew and a niece who are twins, so we realize we have a serious chance! DH would be psyched, he talks about twins all the time! I would also, but of course I'm more of a realist and realize that that means twice the work! But we'd be thrilled (and then nervous, anxious, worried, etc....but I think that's normal! )! But it's kind of strange, I was telling my sister that I've had that on the brain since I found out I was pregnant...women's intuition or just a crazy thought? We'll see!
