If your twins were your first kiddos... - Page 2

post #21 of 31
My twins are boys, and my singles are girls, and I don't think the girls feel left out. Sometimes they all play together, sometimes not. I don't see one of my boys favoring dd1, or vice versa.

I think they all fight together equally

I found out I was PG with a surprise baby on my boys' 3rd bday. They were 3 1/2 when she was born and it's been a great age separation. The boys were independent (mostly) when she was born and she's 2 1/2 now and does everything her brothers do.

A singleton after twins is soooo easy. Unless you have my dd, who is a firecracker. We wouldn't change a thing about her, but we often say she's more work than her twin brothers!

I have two sets of twins and there is almost a 6 yr age difference between them. Our first set are fraternal boys (who are 15 yrs. old) and "I" just wanted to try for a girl....LOL! I got my wish and also got another boy in the deal! LOL! Our younger set are 9 years old.

My neice has a 5 yr old daughter, a 3 yr old daughter and 1 yr old twin fraternal boys!

I had my twins when I was 35 yo. They are almost 5 yo now. If I was younger, I might think about ONE more (I think I idealize the concept of having one baby at a time).

But, my kids were and are so incredibly high needs and challenging I don't think I could do a third now at my age with our resources. They didn't sleep through the night till they were 3 yo and doing that again might actually be the end of me.

So - no more kids.

My twins are 28 months and we will start trying again once they are potty trained and in big beds.....we want 2 or 3 more.......I want twins again, but my husband is praying for them one by one now.......men are funny, I am the SAHM and think twins are easy and he thinks they are hard and he doesn't even have to watch them very often.......

this is what we are afraid of!! our boys will be 3 when the singleton arrives, and i admit, im a bit nervous, though i do believe it HAS to be easier to have one, especially after having the 2 we had first! they were, and are, quite the "handful" as so many strangers are known to say.

My youngest is nearly 3 years younger than my twins- and she has been a dream child, and such a joy. I got to enjoy her babyhood, while my high needs preemies first year is sadly kind of a blur. I do feel she's a bit left out of their play, but she's young still.

Our twins were our first children. We had a third when they were not quite 13 months old. Our fourth was born when our twins had just turned 5 and our third had just turned 4.

Now, our twins are almost 7, our third is almost 6, and our fourth is 20 months. We are done.

Our twins just turned 2, they will be just over 2.5 when this singleton is born. We knew we wanted more kids although if for some reason that couldn't have happened I think I would have been content with the twins (especially b/c they are b/g). I wish we had waited just a tad longer to conceive, three yrs. apart was my ideal. We will be done for a while after this baby since our house will be quite full and we don't plan on moving for a few yrs. But I think we will probably have more, probably one more. Of course I worry about conceiving twins again but if we waited long enough after the third I would be ok with another set. We'll see..... we're not big on planning!

I wonder the same thing too. My twin girls are 1 year old and husband keeps asking if we should get the V done or not. We discuss and think and can't decide.
We have decided this though: We will try to not get pregnant as long as we are not okay with 1) another baby 2) another girl 3) another set of twins. If we are okay with all three of those possibilities, then we can try for another.
