is this true

Are you really more likely to have twins if you get pregnant right after having a baby? My lil girl is like 15 weeks old and I'm about 10 weeks pregnant? I have heard your more fertile and its true..just curious if anyone knows?

  • I don't believe it's true i got pregnant with my second 5 weeks after my first and only had one baby and my family has a history of having fraternal twins. Doesn't mean it's not possible I think your just as likely to have twins after just having a baby as it would be if you had waited a year or two to get pregnant.

  • Wow u got pregnant quick. I got pregnant about 4 months after my son was born and no twins luckily. But I am having another boy so maybe you'll have the same sex too.

  • I've heard that too. My youngest 2 are a week short of a year apart. As someone else said they were both boys. My youngest is now 15 weeks and I think I might be pregnant again.
