Go ahead and call me crazy. Maybe by putting my crazies out in the open, they will become jinxed and untrue.

I have two REALLY strong feelings: a girl feeling, and a twin feeling.

The girl feeling is likely because the majority of our insems this cycle were a few days before O (w/ one the day of O... but the long-lived strong girlie sperm could have been already there waiting!).

The twin feeling... I dunno! I can't really explain it, other than I was suspicious of my 10dpo + digi, my bbs started being sore really early, I'm totally sporting a bloat belly already... and, well, just the FEELING!

Of course, we will be thrilled with healthy baby(s) no matter what, but it would be quite a crazy ride.

I know I'm probably wrong, but the feeling is there.

... and yes, I do have two sets of fraternal twins (that I know about) on my mom's side. One in my grandparent's generation, and one in my generation.

Anyone else have specific, inexplicable feelings about multiples, or risk factors for multiples??

Part hippie-chick, part type-A career woman, all mama. Enjoying life as a wife to my partner of 11 years, and a mama to our smarty-pants toddler, Cadence.

I don't really have a twin "feeling", but I am hoping! I've always wanted twins and think it would be great. Although, I don't want to know if I'm having twins. I just want to have a "SURPRISE! There's two babies!" at my delivery. That means no worries and pressures to abandon my homebirth during pregnancy!

I do however think I"m having a girl. We never find out what we are having and won't with this one either. It's not like I have a strong feeling about THIS baby being a girl. I have just always thought I'd have another girl. All my kids and my dh think it's a girl too. (so now we'll for sure have a boy!)

Life is to be enjoyed...not just endured!
