Starting Over After My Babies Went Home

kryssie - April 15

I gave birth to twins at 24 weeks. My little boy only lived for a few hours while my precious daughter tried for almost a day to stay with us then went home to jesus. I want to get pregnant again but I am scared out of my mind that I will have twins again. Does anyone know how often that happens? I am told my chances are of course increased because of the first set of twins but I don't know if i could bear to risk losing two more babies.

kyrssie- i am so sorry for your loss. you carried them so long.... it must have been very emotional for you. i just lost my twins at 11 weeks gestation. i am sad.... but also thinking that having twins again would be hard. i am hoping for one baby that is healthy and chubby and all that. What was the reason for the pre-term labor??? i have heard of twins making it to 38-40wks gestation mark...so i figured that would be a possibility unless something else came up. As we get older and have more kids the chance for fraternal twins rises a bit. i know a couple moms at my ds school who tried for #4 and got 4 and 5.... at least 3 women now that i think of it. but they were probably closer to 40 when that happened. anyhow, i wish you much comfort in the coming days and months as you think of your little ones that werent ready to join you YET. just know that there are women here who have endured similar losses and can try to help you.
