Would you want to get pregnant with multiples?

Would you want to get pregnant and find out that it was twins or triplets? Personally, that idea scares me to death, lol. It would be really neat to have twins, I think, but I was so uncomfy with my one child while pregnant that I can't imagine having two in there! :)

  • I'm prepared for it. If it happens, it happens. I'm in line for twins (we have a family history of twins). My husband and I want a large family with a lot of children. As I get older, the chances of multiples increases, the more children you have, your chances of having multiples increases. So... I expect that one of these days, one of those positive pregnancy tests is going to turn out to be multiples. We shall see. I wouldn't mind really.

  • Would I WANT to? No. lol. However one of my good friends and my cousin both have twins, and seeing them and how they handle it gives me hope that if I were to ever have a double blessing, I could handle it too.

  • No. When I had my preovulatory ultrasound, we saw two egg follicles so we knew it was a possibility (my sister has twins). It scared me, and I was relieved when I found out I was pregnant with one baby.

  • I wouldn't mind, but I would be scared just because of all the complications with carrying multiple babies. So it's more the risk of carrying them than actually caring for them once they were born. I wouldn't be worried about that aspect.

  • I definitely don't want twins. I was so scared when I was pregnant with my son tht I could have twins b/c it runs in my family. I was relieved when it was just one lil baby in my tummy lol Just the though of teething with two babies scares me...or if they were both sick at same time :/ I never got any sleep with one teething baby and usually don't sleep when he is sick either...I couldn't imagine two?! I know if I had to I could do it, but definitely don't want two...

  • It wouldn't bother me too much. I would have been a little more weirded out if Ki had been twins, since she was the first. But, I think I could handle it now.

  • If it happened, it would be challenging, but great. I would never intentionally have multiples though.

  • I am a twin with a boy and we're 40 and still very close. I have two sons and wanted twins with my second. My mom said it was a lot of work at first but they always have eachother.
