  • Other than IVF or implanting multiple eggs, I think it is all genetics and up to God.

  • Talk to your doctor... I remember hearing somewhere that there is a medication when ttc that can help you release multiple eggs. Good Luck!!!

  • I don't know, but if you find out, PLEASE email me! my husband and i desperately want multiples...we have been ttc for over two years now, we may not get many chances to get our big family. Yes, we are doing fertility shots.

    sweet potatoes, or just potatoes in general? I've never head this. I hate sweet potatoes, i don't know if i could choke lots of them down!?!

  • Well I think the sweet potatoes thing is a little strange, but Clomid is what they give women who are having issues ovulating and you may be able to convince a doc to give you a script to increase your chances of producing more then one egg.
