whats it like to have two sets of twins? me and my husband would like to try again in a few years and we have boy/girl twins, we get funny looks as if to say why!! but we are worried it would be twins again(and a little excited). so is it even harder or easier coz you already have done it? btw i know someone with 3 sets of twins!

I have a sister of 65, brother and sister of 64 and 2 brothers of 62 ( non identical ) then me 56. So in 1952 mum had 5 children under 3 years old. Twins on both sides going back hundreds of years. My eldest sister and I feel blessed to have been part of this special family ( while not having to share our birthdays !!! ). No twins from the 4 of us that have had children or from those children so perhaps it skips more than one generation as is sometimes said.

Wow Congrats!! And I thought I was busy!=) Its amazing to hear everybodys story of having 2 sets of twins. I only have one set and they are 6 months and I have a 2 &4 yr old. I'm done, but we didnt do anything to be done. My great grandmother and great Aunt had twins that didnt survive and my Aunt had twins and her daughter had twins that survived, so it definately runs in the family. If I got pregnant again and It turns out that its not multiples I would be disappointed.

Im 28 yrs old now. But @ the age of 21. I had my set of twins girls (identical). Than @ the age of 22 found out I was pregnant again w/twins. This time I had a boy girl. Ugh!! I love them to death. But @ times I can poke my damn eyes out s/t. I have older twin cousins on both my father/mother side. My husband sis had a set of twins, but one passed away @ birth. I'm the baby on both my mother & dads side. I guess im lucky. So ppl say, but its a blessing!!!!!!!:-)

Amazing! I have no family history of twins in my family or his and have 6 month old b/g twins and a 4 year old son and constantly wonder if I could have another set. I know the odds are quadrupled if you already have a set of fraternals but It is interesting to see even those without family history of multiples ending up with more than one set of twins. Love to hear of anyone else without a family history ending up with 2 sets of spontaneous fraternals !!!! What a blessing!

I have 10 yr old boy twins not identical and 6yr old girl/boy twins and also a daughter 18. It does not run in my family. I love my kids and feel it is so much easier with twins. No twins in the family going back on either side. My husband walked out 2yrs ago and is missing so much they are their best friends the boy and girl get along much better then they boys twins at this time could just be the age though... I would not trade this for the world I am so blessed. This is a true miracle

I also have 2 sets of twins 1st set are boy/gorl twins that are 10 & 22 month old identical twin boys. I also have a 15 almost 16 year old son. No one on either side of our families have twins. I count myself very blessed! I asked a lot of people when I found out I was having my 2nd set & could not find anyone else. I feel like a freak sometime also. I think its because a few people in this world make us feel like that sometimes. Good Luck with them it only gets eaiser from here. (Well till they can drive anyways right LOL)!

Identical twins are not hereditary on either side of the family, they happen from a single egg that has been fertilized splitting in two. Faternal twins are hereditary on the mothers side, they come from two eggs being ovulated and fertilized in one cycle. Women ovulating two eggs in one cycle runs in the family, it also may occur as women get older which is why older women who get pregnant have a higher incidence of having multiples.

Quoting Becky:

I have one set of identical twin boys that are 8 1/2 months old, but my sister in law (husbands sister) has identical twin boys that are 5 and my Mother in law had Identical twin girls and my father in law adn uncle in law are identical twins. There are NO twins in my family so I am calling BS to it not running on fathers side or identicals running in the family LOL.



my husbands brother had a a set of identical twins like me and my husband i also have and aunt and uncle thats twins i have always wondered the same about identicals running in mens side of the family

Hello, i have 2 year old twin girls. We are debating right now if we want to start trying again. If i only had one then id be okay. But n ot sure how another set of twins or more would work out. There is a sight on here that is for parents with sets of mutiples. And you are not a freak!!!!!

I only have one set of b/g twins right now, but I wouldn't mind having another set. People think I'm crazy, but i think it would be fun.

How exciting for you. Congrats on your babies. I've only got one set who are 8 weeks old ( and 3 older girls ) and I would still love to have more babies. I would have more, and would love another set but have decided ( with much sadness ) that, thats it for us. Have fun with your babies and I agree, us twin mums are very fertile!

You're not a freak by any stretch of the word! Just very blessed to be fertile. When I got pregnant with my third child, who's six years younger than my twin boys, I told my doctor I had two request. The first one being I wanted a girl. The second one being, if there's two in there put the other one back, I'm not having another set of twins!...lol..needless to say, I had a very healthy baby girl. Those with multiple sets of multiples are blessed to be able to have so many children at once. Least thats how I look at it. Please remember, you're not a freak. Just very blessed!!

Yes, I also have two sets of twins - both identical; 12 and 7 years old (also no twins in my or my husband's family). I also have another boy, 8 (almost 9 years old). They are all boys and we enjoy them very much. Can't imagine life without them!

It doesnt matter if twins run in your family or not, it all depends on how many eggs a woman drops at a time. I thought the same thing so I googled it.

I have two beautiful girls just over a year old now (fraternal)! In fact I was pregnant with triplets but lost one very early in the pregnancy! You are not a freak - you guys are truly blessed (and yes very fertile)!

God bless you. What a great gift. I only have one set of twins and a single girl. kids are wonderful. Enjoy them and just tell yourself when you get those looks that they are just thinking "glad it is you not me" and then tell yourself "me too". My sister has always said that God knew which sister to give the twins to because she could not do it.

I only have 1 set of identical twin girls (9 weeks), but twins do run in my family and even though I would like to have another baby in the future I don't know if I would prefer to have another set of twins. If we did I would be happy and feel very blessed and so should you. I believe if you have been blessed with twins it's because you can handle it. Don't feel llike a freak at all and never let anyone else make you feel that way. I have to give you credit, it's a lot of work raising one baby let alone two sets of twins! You must be an exceptional Mom!

My eldest boy/girl twin's are 30 and my younger set of boy/girl twin's are 24, followed by a 14 year old son and a 10 year old son. When people ask me if twins run in my family I always reply, "they do now". I've been asked countless times if we used fertility methods, which #1 is nobody s business and #2 we didn't have fertility drugs 30 years ago! Having two sets of twins doesn't make you a freak, it makes you blessed! Enjoy every second because in a blink of an eye they are all grown with families of their own.

I have twin sons age 12. I got pregnant with my second set of twins around Nov. 2007, my due date was Aug 28, 2008.

I miscarried at around 8 weeks, due to being diabetic and an underactive thyroid.

now on medication for thyroid problems. Still trying for another baby, we will see what we get (who God will bless us with:-) CheraDee age:33

HI! Yes, I have 8 yr old fraternal boy twins and 6 yr old fraternal girl twins. You shouldn't feel like a freak, you are very blessed! I also have a 17 yr old, 15 yr old, 11 yr old and 4 yr old. Twins actually do run in my family.

And, like Ellie, I too know of someone with 3 sets of twins. They are so fun! Good luck to you :)

I have two sets, the big kids are b/g and are 5 and the babies are 14 months. It is crazy, but it does happen. I always say someone "up there" must think I am pretty special to be able to handle all of this. I wouldn't have it any other way
