Do twins or multiples run in your family?
Sneaking suspicion that you are carrying more than 1?

Do twins or multiples run in your family? DH is a twin, but other than that I don't think so.

There are a few sets of twins in my family. I do not feel like I am carrying more than one, but I would be thrilled.

no, but given that we used fertility drugs, it's a possibility.
I think there's just one ittybitty in there

Twins run on both sides of our family. One of my great grandmothers (could be more than one great, not too sure) had TWO sets of twins AND a set of triplets. My aunt also had two sets of twins naturally.
So, I suppose there is always that chance there could be more than one for me. I actually told my mom I think there could be more than one. I would be ok with that I suppose but it sure would be hard for me.

Not to be the one to make people upset, but the twin gene runs only in the females, it's the egg that decides to split, let in two sperm or your ovaries that let you drop more than one egg. Sorry to be the one to ruin it, if you don't believe me you can check with your doc. Oh and fraternal twins can run in the family, identical just happen.

The only twins that I know of is from my grandmother. My Aunt was supposed to be a twin but the other didn't make it. Vanishing Twin I think.
And I'm pretty sure there is only one LO in there.

Twins run in my family, not in DH's. I have a grandma thats a twin, my aunt was a twin (her sister was born still), and I have 3 cousins who have twins and my sister has twins (though hers was through IVF). And my dad has a cousin who had 9 kids in 5 pregnancies, 1 singleton and 4 sets of fraternal twins (eek!).

I'm thinking there is only 1 in there though!

Twins do run in the family on my mums side but I had IVF and 2 embryos put back so its a big possibility that it could be twins.
