    I was having some pain in my pelvic last week, and sometimes I can feel that one of the twins is kicking very low in my uterus. It feels bizar. I also didn't put on a lot of weight and that worries me.

    I have boy / girl twins who where conceived naturally 4 days before my 21st birthday.

    I was told I have a really high chance of concieving twins again, about 1 in 8 and the chance will increase the older I get and the more pregnancies I have. Has anyone else heard this and does anyone know how they came up with 1 in 8? The only thing I can think of is that you must have 10 times the chance if you have twins and since the chance for the general population is 1 in 80, it brings it down to 1 in 8.

    Hello Everyone,
    I'm an identical twin with fraternal twin boys aged 2 & 7mths, (conceived naturally) & I just found out I'm pregnant again (5 weeks). I'm kind of hoping I'm not having twins again because it is hard work, but apparently my chances are quite high due to having fraternal twins which means I have released 2 eggs, & also because I'm an 'older mum'.

    We conceived naturally fraternal twins, but I also miscarried twins a few months before falling preg with Gabe and Tallulah. A lady in the SCU when I was in there also had fraternal twins. Hers were a mix of IVF and natural, they had one implant so thought they were having ID but turned out they had also conceived naturally aswell as they were boy/girl twins, just blessed.
