I know there are several mamas here with 2 sets of twins, so I want to get an official thread started to see the stats.

Count me in for two! I have identical girls and fraternal boy/girl. We're ttc now so maybe I'll be up to three. I must be crazy, but I'm kind of hoping for that.

I am now officially drawing on you as my inspiration. You and the other woman I read/heard about who had a 2yo, 1yo, and gave birth to twins.

I am currently growing my first, and God willing, only set. We're done having kiddos now!

Only one set (22 months-b/g) but will start trying again next year.....to those of you with more than one set, and with triplets......was it natural or did you use fertility drugs.....just seeing what my chances are, and if there is a natural chance for triplets. My dh just wants one at a time after this, but I would be happy with twins again.

only one set here and they are my only DC for now. I'd love to expand our family but DH is worried about having twins again. I might be crazy but the thought of another set doesn't stop me from wanting to get PG again.

I'm SO glad to hear I'm not the only "crazy" one who wouldn't mind twins again! Granted, unlike most of you, I already have two sets, but I really would like having twins again. Of course, I can't tell my DH this or he would never have sex with me again!

And I will DEFINITELY not tell him that the triplets were spontaneous. I showed him your post and I think triplets are by far his biggest fear. But it's like I told him, it could always be "worse."

Only one set...so far, but like a few other crazy moms of twins, I would be thrilled by another set in the future (the amnesia has already hit!) Not that I would look forward to the end of pregnancy/delivery/first few months after knowing what that is like, but the the lifetime of enjoy two more little people makes any and all of it worthwhile! Especially since we would love a big family and my c-sections limit me in a way-two babies at a time is a blessing!!!

we just have the 1 set of twins but my heart is definitely open to another little one or 2. No fertility help on our end, just a fluke.

I've only got one set... but I'm pregnant again. My twins are MZ though so chances are slim that I'll have twins again. I do have this nagging feeling that it could be twins again though!

one set - but people ask "how many are twins" or if I have triplets regularly as my older three dc are all about the same size right now.

1 set of MZ boys, followed by two singleton girls.

And you're all crazy; I practically cried with relief at discovering my subsequent pregnancies were both singletons.

I saw your first post and said, wait a minute, didn't she just post that she's having twins again? Guess your feeling was right.

Now don't be hasty. We had twins first. Then dh had vasectomy. 4 years later we were yearning for more. Reversed vasectomy scheduled. Had a singleton, twins and now another singleton due in a few weeks. You never know how having children might change your desires about family. So don't make any rash decisions. Vasectomy reversal is expensive, not covered by insurance and is rarely as hugely successful as ours has been!
