I went to get on birth control pills when period was due within about a week. They tested me and it was negative. They gave me my pills and said wait a few days for AF and then on the first day take it but if you want, since its due soon anyway, you can go ahead and take it now. I dont know why but I waited. However, she never showed. I kept testing but I was 2 weeks late by the time I got a positive even though I had already had weird symtoms like I pooched out early (thought it was bloat from period soon to start) and before I even suspected, I dreamed I was pregnant. (I have had this dream every time I got pregnant)
Soo... the pregnancy wasnt a huge shocker I just kinda knew.
My question is, on my first OB appointment, after having this weird dream I was looking at an ultrasound screen and there were two babies, 2 sacs, ect and I looked at my DP and said "Ha! told ya so!"
And the dr said I was "measuring a month ahead, better not be twins in there" it just kinda got me thinking.
With my last birth I suffered a partial prolapsed cervix/uterus so uterus isnt quite high as it should be, or cervix, so i would have thought I wouldnt be measuring large but maybe on the smaller side instead.
Okay, to the point. Does anyone know if there is a connection with weaning, or first post partum cycles and ovaries releasing 2 eggs? or being hyper stimulated? I had ovarian cramping which I never usually had before round the time I would have ovulated.
Anyone concieve while weaning or first pp cycle? Know if there is a link?
Thanks! I get an ultrasound in a few days to get a more accuarate due date as I could be 12 weeks based on lmp or 10 based on first day I got my positive as I was testing everyday. Guess we will know then, hopefully they wont miss it if there are 2.

I am interested to hear more about this connection, though. Is it a MZ or DZ thing? Our twins are most likely MZ.

I am 24 weeks pregnant now with MZ twins and never even got my pp period after delivering my son who is now 8 months old. DS was exclusivly Breastfed and I found out I was pregnant and quite shocked to say the least.
I got pregnant with MZ twins while nursing a singleton and then got pregnant with MZ twins while nursing MZ twins. I had only had a handful of cycles at all since having my first child.
