Did you want/pray for twins?

I'm wondering how many other moms hope for twins when pregnant. Did you? Did you get them? Just curious.

  • I wished for them desperately and got 2 sets of twins! So be careful what you wish for.. especially if you have pregnancies close together.. No not really, twins are an amazing blessing, if you're wishing for them, then good luck.

  • I did. I always thought it would be awesome to have twins or more. Then I had ONE. I have SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much respect for moms of multiples! I'm not sure I could have handled it!

  • I would have been happy to just have one....but, yes, I did have a secret wish for twins... And, fortunately, both embryos stuck around!

  • I ALWAYS wanted twins when I was growing up, like obsessively. My mom always had to buy me the twin Cabbage Patch dolls. Now I have identical twin daughters. They're so wonderful, but I would rather not have twins next time around.

  • I all ways wanted twins. Growing when ask what i wanted to be I would say a mommy to twins.
    Well each time dh and i would be ttc I would tell him think twins. Well each of them pg was just a singleton. then we had an suprise pg. And suprise it was twin boys.
    And i have to tell you I would take another set in a heartbeat. Its just so much fun. Ok all the boys are a blast.

  • Nope, I even wished for twins (heck I did not think I would ever have children), and well I did not get twins, but I did get triplets. Talk about getting more than you asked for!
