any tips for conceiving twins? - Page 2

post #21 of 34
My best friend got so sick of this question she'd just start telling people to have sex standing up.

I want twins, but only because I'm only "allowed" to have one more kid. But I want 2. So if I had twins I'd win!

This thread is cracking me up! :

According to my Dr., sometimes weaning of an older child, stress, older (and no I"M not OLD!), AA, moms who have more children, mults run in the family. Otherwise I think just luck! DH suggests doing it twice in one night As a funny, we only DTD 3 times the whole month we got PG w/ the boys. The day I found out I went out to find him and show him the US pics. We were on one side of a truck talking and he says "Just that one time and we got twins, we only had s*x 3 times all month" and low and behold MIL had come out to find us and the US pics, she was on the other side of the truck! I don't know if she heard or not, but I highly suspect she did.

AA? What's that?
You mean the meetings I'll be going to after I get through this first year with twins? :

Being African American, I believe is what was meant.
I believe the specific African group "in question" is Nigerian.

I didn't think about that. I was still taking folic acid as well.

Jumping in because I saw this on the main page -
I used to want twins - then I had Riley and wow. My hat is off to you twin moms. Seriously - great job!

I probably have a pretty good chance of having twins... My mom is a twin and she has another set of twin sisters (my mom and her twin are MZ, other sisters are DZ).

I would definitely be super excited if I were to get pregnant with twins but I'd also be quite a bit afraid as well. My grandma managed two sets of twins plus 7 other kids though, so I'm sure I could manage.

We had sex twice* on July 4th, then took a long bike ride down to the beach and watched fireworks. Et voila! Identical twins! I think all the bouncing on the bike must've made the egg split, right?

I dunno if you were joking, but

Wild Yam has been proven to raise Progesterone levels, which increases the chance for implantation, so in theory if you are predisposed for double ovulation, wild yam should increase your chance of fraternal twins (because it increases the chance for any fertilized egg to implant).

I loved having twins and its been easier then I thought it would be. My house was already total chaos anyways though with the ages of my other kids lol !! I would love one more set of twins to complete our family, but only if I could carry them, then someone else could have the c-section, and then I could take care of them after that. The twins' c-section was a nightmare!

I always wanted twins btw....and was always hoping really hard/then bummed after each u/s showing only one baby. I was positively thrilled to find out the twins were twins. No doubt its a TON of work (carrying them during pregancy to the present), but what an amazing journey its been as well.
