Hi guys, I have been lurking around for week or so now. This is pregnancy #6 for me. We were definately done after #5 so after weaning DS, had first pp period though it was abnormal. Very light and only 3 days instead of my usual 7 full and heavy one. I figured cause it was first pp cycle. However, in the past, my first pp cycles were monsterously heavy and painful. I was relieved so I didnt complain.

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.

Yes, the chances of twins are increased if you get pregnancy right around the time of the return of your fertility from my research.

Our twins were conceived with my first ovulation before even having my cycle PP. That being said, so was our #3, who is a singleton (our #2 and current #6 - singletons - were conceived when I ovulated after 1 period).

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

I conceived after my 1st postpartum period. They are MZ twins so not 2 eggs popping out.

I conceived my twins while nursing my 15mo old.  I had a weird pp cycle with no ovulation and long bleeding time and then conceived the twins

I conceived my MZ twins while nursing my 15 month old. My periods had returned when my daughter was 9 months old.

I conceived DZ twins when DD1 was 14 months old (and nursing A LOT).  My periods had come back at four months PP, however.

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.
