POLL: Chances of multiple sets of twins? - Page 2

post #21 of 26
Voting for a friend of mine - he & his wife had DZ girls & about 1.5 years later had MZ boys. She is a twin (B/G) & iirc her mom or her aunt is a twin as well.

I would take my mom to visit with them whenever she started pressuring me to have babies .

I have two sets of fraternal twins - first set are boys and second set are boy/girl. No history of twins on my side of the family....if we had tried a 3rd time it would have been twins (or triplets) again.....at 33 weeks with my 2nd set during an u/s the tech "thought" she saw a "3rd"...however it turned out to be a shadow! LOL! My daughter will have a strong chance of having twins herself someday too. I have a neice who had 2 girls (singles) and then had fraternal twin boys....of course she blames me! LOL!

I've had 4 pregnancies and had 2 singletons then ID twins then a singleton after the twins. Although my midwife thought I measured big and did think maybe I was having twins again but in fact it was only one baby.

Hehe I'll chime in, for my Mom.
Age 23 identical twin girls
25 identical twin boys (19months apart)
35 singleton boy
40 singleton boy

Mom always laughed and talked about something in the water. So far I have had 4 singletons, and my sister 1..

My sis is due in Feb with her second set of twins.
Age 20 & 22 - singleton girls 14 mos apart
Age 23 twin boys (DZ)
Age 24 (11.5mos later!) singleton girl
Age 30 singleton girl (lost in utero)
Now age 31 pg with twin girls (don't know if MZ or DZ yet.)

I have another sister who has a singleton (age 24) and one set of MZ twins (age 28).

My grandfathers on both sides had twin siblings, though as far as I know there are no twins in our direct genetic line. But I'm scared to get pg again even though I only have two singletons! Too great a chance of twins for me!
