can nursing while pregnant really increase chances for twins?

So yea I was browsing online and came across something that said keep nursing when you conceive so increase chances for twins. I'm a little nervous since I was nursing when I got pregnant. I haven't gone to the Dr yet I'm sure it would be a while before I actually get to find out how many are taking residence in my uterus right?

I have heard of that but I am not sure if it is true. I have gotten pregnant three times while BFing, no twins.

it *may* increase it slightly (i dont know) but it is NOT going to CAUSE you to have twins. If they dont run in your family, you are still very unlikely to have them. I wouldn't worry.

I've never heard that. I'm nursing my 19 month old and TTC so I guess we'll see! :P

I've heard it and I was nursing when I conceived this baby (a singleton). Idk if it''s true or not but it wasn't for me.

Never heard that before, but I did nurse and I am pregnant with twins lol who knows anything is possible, but I think it may have more to do with that fact that I am a twin and my mom is a twin and my grandma. :)
