My b/g twins are now 2 years old. My husband and I are now rested and sane (or insane?) enough to consider if we might have additional children. My twins were born at 38 weeks and 1 day by C-section; my doctor gave me an incision in my cervix so if I had additional children, I could try VBAC. Since we have b/g twins, we get a lot of comments about how "we're all done," or "all set!" We also have concerns that the 3rd child would feel somehow excluded because they don't have a twin to bond with. If we did have more children, I would want to have another child before my twins are 5 years old so they can be close enough in age to relate well. We did not have any family or friends around to support us when they were born, so it was very stressful on our relationship and me emotionally/physically when our twins were born. I was fortunate to breastfeed both for 11 months and feel lately as though I have been able to be happier and more relaxed about life with my twins (possible post-partum depression) and my marriage is improved and stronger. We're in a situation where we may move 2 hours away from my in-laws, which would allow for more support. I'm just curious if there are other women who have had a child after their twins and how they decided to follow-through?
