I was just wondering at what age did you guys get pregnant with your twins. Was it natural? I am 21 and currently 11 weeks pregnant with twins and they are natural. They are my second pregnancy. Were they your first, second, ect?

Emma, yes a male who carries the hyperovulation gene CAN pass that gene to his daughters. That gene does NOT effect his ability to produce twins, but when he has daughters, he can pass this gene on to them and increase THEIR chances of having twins.
Just like, as a mother, I can the hyperovulation gene to both my sons and daughters, only my daughters have an increased chance of having twins, but my sons can then pass that gene onto their daughters. (Not that I have any sons, but hypothetically speaking.)

Hi Ianina,
Just so you know you can'y concieve twins from you b/f only females can concieve them but if you had daughters he could pass the gene on to them, the twins came from your side of the family.

Hi, I was 46 years old when I had my twin boys. Yes it was trough invitro fertilization. They have endless energy and It is exhausting. -They are now 5 and I am getting a divorce. I have sole custody and get no child support. It's hard. My parents are nearly 90 years old and I live with then.

I conceived mine when I was 20 yrs old, they are identical boys, along with my first pregnancy... maybe my last, I don't know LOL. Like Anna Grillot, when I was younger I used to play with dolls all the time and for whatever reason I never had just one baby, I would always be playing mommy with twin girls, I had twin boys haha

I was 20 when I conceived my twins, the old fashioned way. Then I had a singleton, and another twin pregnancy, I lost them at 14 weeks. Then another singleton. I swear that if I ever get pregnant again, it will be twins again, but I don't want to!



I always wanted twins my whole life! When I was little I would tell my mom," when I have a baby, I want it to be two." how cute was I? Lol

I am 43, these will be my 6th & 7th births and I did not use in-vetro. BIG surprise! We are very blessed.

I was 37 when I had them (43 now). I already had three older kids who are now 26, 23 and 17. (I had my first at age 16, back when I was too young and thought I knew EVERYthing. lol. (I was wrong) Anyway, I remarried and my husband had no children so we decided to go with IVF. We got pregnant on our first cycle with fraternal boys. Though, just as we started the first steps of the process my daughter "surprised" me with her own pregnancy and my grandson was born 9 months, to the day, before my twins. So most of the time it's like having triplet boys around my house. lol. But we love it and I have the great blessing of being at home with my boys. I babysit my sweet grandson, Logan, while his mommy works, and the boys are all VERY close.

I have twin girls. They were born 3 weeks early. They were my second pregnancy. In case of complications I had an epidural which I did not enjoy. They are doing great and have an older sister by two years to keep them in line.

I was 32 and my husband is 28. They were born on July 11th 5 days before my 33rd birthday. We did have natural twins. My girls are my second pregnancy. My first ended in a miscarriage in April of 2011. I became pregnant with my twins November 18th 2011 and found out I was pregnant with twins in January 2012.

I was a few weeks shy from 36 when I concieved my identical twin boys and I didn't even know I was pregnant with twins until 11 weeks. They were spontaneous and it's my first pregnancy. Twins don't run in my family nor my fiance's family. Apparently identical twins are random.

I was 28 when i conceived my fraternal twin boys naturally. They were my 3rd pregnancy. They are now 6 and i also have an 11 year old son and a 14 year old daughter. When i had them no one knew of twins anywhere in the family before. Then 2 years ago my cousin ( who is the daughter of my mother's sister) had a set of fraternal twin girls! Looks likes twins DO run the family after all!

I was pregnant with my twins (Boy/Girl) when I was 34, they were conceived natually and I did not have a C-section. I feel very lucky and also proud that they were 13 minutes apart. I also have an older child another son who was 2 years old when the twins arrived on his second birthday. So they are all Aries, no confusion there :) Congrats on your twins they are truley a blessing as true for all babies.
