I would love to be carrying twins! (Slim chance though) I think it would be great to have 2 beautiful children with half the wait of having them separately ;) lol

I worry because I seem to meet so many of the criteria on those articles about "Could you be having twins?" ;-)

My sister recently had a twin pregnancy, but we're not biologically related.

A good friend of my family has a funny story about twins. Neither our friend, nor her husband, have any history of twins in their families, but the first time she got pregnant she went to the doctor and found out it was twins. Little boys! So they wanted to try again for a little girl. When she found out she was pregnant she went back to the doctor and was told, it is twins! She started crying! little boys again!! Lucky for her, number 5 was just single... and a girl!! :) No fertility treatments or anything! What are the chances of that?!


As for me, no real concerns! There are twins in my family, but honestly, what are the chances! The only thing that made me even consider twins was the fact that my hpt came back positive within 5 seconds. I shouldn't have been more than about 3-4 weeks along, so that surprised me. But I'm sure there is just 1 in there!
Hope if you want twins, they are in there for you!

I'm terrified of this!! I was seriously laying in bed thinking about it. We can handle one more, but not two!! We both work full time, and have to pay for daycare, etc. We can't handle twins!! O MG. Hubby even said he is really scared of this. They don't run in the family.

oh , and also, i know it is said that you have extra hormones with twins, and feel twice as sick. Makes sense. and i have NO morning sickness at all (yet).

Yes. My hcg rose from 50 to 599 in 4 days, which is a doubling time of 26.8 hours. Every site I found shows that as being high even for twin pregnancies! That coupled with the fact that my dr was trying to have me come in for an u/s before Christmas when I won't even be 7wks yet definitely has me worried! Twins do run in my family, and breastfeeding at the time of conception can increase your odds of getting pregnant with twins. D'oh! I'm still BFing!
