My twin boys are 3 years old now, and my husband and I are contemplating trying for another baby in the next year or two. Our pregnancy with our twins was totally unplanned, and we def weren't expecting TWINS! Of course we can't imagine life without them now, and I am starting to get really excited about the idea of having a baby again now that we are more "experienced" parents. However, I am not so sure I would be ready to have twins again. Of course if it happened we would consider it a special gift, but still...AHH haha. I guess I am looking for other's experiences of having another baby (or two) after twins....how old were your first twins, how did they adjust, etc. Also, does anyone out there know anything you can do to try to prevent a second twin pregnancy? I am just longing for the experience to care for just one infant. Any insight would be appreciated! Oh, and our twins are fraternal, and twins do run on my father's side of the family. He has twin aunts, twin brothers, and his sister (my aunt) has twin girls so I know our chances of twins again are def higher.
