Do you think you could be having twins? How would you react? What about SO/DH?

I would be okay with it but it could risk you out of homebirth and can a fight for a vaginal delivery in a lot of hospitals so its not something I would want.

I sure hope I'm not...lol...one set is enough for me. They are a blessing and a TON of work. But the bright side if I did have twins again is that I have two little mama helpers.

I had twins last time. While I'm glad i got to experience twins, I'm really hoping for just one this time. LOL. I think my chances might be higher because I've already had them so we shall see.

I would be in a permanent state of shock lol. This being our 5th and last (and a surprise pregnancy!) twins would not be what I would choose. But if it happened I'm sure I would eventually be excited.

As far as I know, I have no familial predisposition to twins. If I told my husband that I think he would drop into a coma and we would never revive him!! One surprise baby is plenty

My husband would think it was great, but not me. I wanted twins when we were just starting out. But now, with this many kids, twins would be way too hard.

I'd crap my pants.

Though I'll be blessed by whatever I have, I'd rather just have one!

This would be my response too. Twins run in my family so it's certainly a possibility for me. YIKES!

Twins run in my family, both me and my younger sister were twins [my mum lost our siblings ] then my aunt has triplets!

My first pregnancy my fam thought I had twins as I showed really quick...but I didn't...now they are saying the same thing, I'm only 4wks and my mum thinks I have a little bump already...but I'm thinking its more me being bloated all the time LOL!

If we do have twins I would be very excited but obviously terrified too...how on earth are we going to afford all those diapers, wipes, clothes...2 of everything!!! We would make it work tho

Oh...and don't even get me started on triplets!!!!!!!!!!!!

Id love twin boys but I know it would be really hard. DH would freak out but Im sure get over it. I doubt twins though, it doesn't run in either of our families.

Ugh, twins would be some pretty heartbreaking news for me to hear! I had one set--born way preemie, and lost my son at 13 days old. Had another set that miscarried shortly after finding out and spend the entirety of both pregnancies on complete bedrest due to complications... (like could only shower every other day and get up to pee. NO FUN)

Unfortunately for me.. having had two sets already.. they think something weird is up with my ovulations and I release multiple eggs really frequently so my risk is incredibly high! I am just praying for one... I want to actually enjoy my pregnancy.

I am super freaking out though because this time around feels extremely similar to my last twin pregnancy like in regards to symptoms. Hoping I am just freaking myself out and its not the case!!

I've always thought if you're gonna have twins it would be better to have them first. If I had twins now, I'd be going nuts trying to take care of them PLUS a 2 year old.

Twins would be awesome! But hoping for just one. If we added two more family members, we would still have an odd number of kids. We were hoping to have an even number for those days we go to Dairy Queen when the have their buy one, get on half off deal. We fight over that last ice cream! Only joking. But I would be blessed with how ever many I would be having.
