I would've loved it, and I had odds stacked in my favor (maternal history of faternal twins, I'm over 30, I've had lots of pregnanciea) but alas we've peeked in there and I just have one little jelly bean

We actually don't have a single set of twins anywhere in our family and extended family. I never had thought about it, but that actually seems pretty weird.

We only have one little bean in there, and while I'll admit that twins are adorable, I'm not sure how I'd handle it.

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13

My chances of having twins again is high.

But, it's not what it's all cracked up to be so I pray that I don't. I have identical a that were born so premature at 2 lbs and one stayed in the hospital for 8 months.

So, if I do, let's pray for fraternal.
If you have a possibility of twins- I recommend start prenatals right away and being extremely careful so that they are born as healthy as possible.

Not to mention, double the trouble makes you want to tear your hair out. It's like tag teaming mom all the time..

Good luck!

I would cry, I'm overwhelmed already at the prospect of having two children under two. If I had three... I don't know how I'd manage.

I would be nervous about it for lots of reasons- history of preterm, terrified of C-sections, not ideal for our living situation right now, BF literally sucks the life out of me, but really I would love it.

twins run in my family, and I had a twin pregnancy last time. The baby didn't make it, and I had a m/c of baby b. I always felt robbed of my twins, so I'd love twins this time!
