just thought i should chime in here. I, too, am currently pregnant with twins as a result of clomid. so, Yes, clomid does increase your chances of twins, but i have to say, fertile or not, at best it will be by a 15% increase. 80% is very misleading. i say this after nearly a year of research and from discussions with many women from various forums etc. hope that helps and all the best!

For those who take PRESCRIBED Clomid under the supervision of a doctor for necessary fertility treatments, I wish you an immense amount of luck, good will, and most of all, a successful pregnancy with a beautiful result! For those who are naively taking UNPRESCRIBED Clomid for the sole glory of having twins, I would urge you to spend some time in your local NICU and see what happens more often than not. Even if you have never had any problems carrying your other babies, twins are a completely different story. Before I had my twins (losing one and fighting for 3 months to keep the other), I had no idea how dangerous having twins is. You never know the full story when you see the cute little strollers at the park. A lot of people think it's "two for the price of one!" It's more like two for the price of... two and a half. ANd that's if you're lucky. Sometimes it's one or none in the end. I was absolutely shocked to see how full the NICU was with twins and triplets. And many of them will have longterm development problems. Those aren't "cute". If you are playing with fire unnecessarily, please rethink what you are doing. It's not fair to the babies you want to carry or the to the ones you may already have at home if the pregnancy ends in your own death. If you think it can't happen to you, you are WRONG. I have met SO many mothers just like me, with no history of problems with a pregnancy, with pregnancies ending in disaster because they were carrying twins. Yes, people have twins successfully every day, but you should know that when they say "high risk", they really mean it. Even with the very best, most observant prenatal care, it is still stunningly dangerous.

why is it that every time some one ask about having twins theres always some one out there being negtive yes there are chances that some thing may go wrong like ALL pregnances not just multiples but if every one should stop and think about that then the world would stand still cause every one would be too scared to have kids truth is being pregnant in genaral is dangerous if any one wants to go a head and TRY to have twins then plz tell them to do all there home work first instead of telling them YOUR GOING TO DIE IF YOU HAVE TWINS OR YOUR BABIES ARE GOING TO DIE OR HAVE PROBLEMS stop and think about the other women on here that are have multiples reading your comment that are now freaking out because of your comment i find it MEAN sorry thats just what i think

AS I SAID VERY CLEARLY: Spend some time in a NICU and educate yourself. I did NOT say you ARE going to die or that your babies WILL have problems. I said your chances are VERY VERY INCREASED and frankly, that is the reality. Sorry if you don't like to hear it. Sorry if it freaks people out. It's the truth. I think it's a risk worth taking if you have fertility problems. I think it's naive and selfish if you don't.

1"if the pregnancy ends in your own death" 2"I was absolutely shocked to see how full the NICU was with twins and triplets" 1 you did say die 2 where do you live that a NICU is full of multiples cause in that case theres fertilty drugs in your water i just dont believe you your being dramatic

1. It can end in death. Again, it's probably worth the risk for LEGITIMATE fertility concerns. I'd probably take that risk myself if I NEEDED to. Sorry that you don't like to hear that having a high-risk pregnancy comes with... RISKS. 2. There were a LOT of twins and triplets in both of the hospitals we spent time in. I would know, you wouldn't. You can choose to believe or not. No problem for me. 3. I'm done conversing with you. SERIOUSLY, you need a dictionary and possibly an English course. I can barely understand your comments and this is pointless. I have my opinion and you have yours. I was polite in my original post and commented about my own personal experience and what I have witnessed from a frame of informed experience. There is no need to attack me as you have done. You are free to disagree with me. But I will not engage in any more conversations with you.

wow - the hostility... i don't think that most women go into this prescribed or unprescribed without having done a lot of soulsearching. i had 23 weeker identical twin girls in 2003, they suffered from twin to twin and one of my little ones was stillborn, the other spent 4 months in the nicu. they were a surprise pregnancy, i was actually on the pill when i got pregnant. during my daughters time in the nicu there were a fair number of twins/triplets there, but the vast majority were singletons. there are no guarantees for anyone when you get pregnant. however, having been there and having done a lot of soulsearching if i do try to get pregnant again i will most likely take clomid (unprescribed)to try for twins, and not just for the "glory of having twins". also bear in mind that while yes, twin pregnancies are absolutely higher risk - id twins are higher risk than fraternals which is what you will most likely get with clomid. everyone has to make the choices that are right for them and no one needs the criticism. remember our moms when we were kids telling us if we couldn't say something nice not to say anything at all?? just say a prayer that all goes well and leave it at that. btw - not a minute goes by that i don't miss my little angel in heaven, but on a bright note my surviving twin is absolutely normal and healthy - she doesn't even need gla__ses. good luck to everyone - not matter what lead you to the choices you have made.

Lisa, while I am sad that you have been there and done that with your girls, you have a very good idea as to what I am describing. For me, I think there is soulsearching and there is informed decision making to go along with it. In my opinion, you are more informed than most. ID twins are the highest risk, but not the only ones, in my experience. You have clearly spent a lot of time in the NICU and know exactly what you are talking about. You know the risks, which puts you ahead of the curve, whatever your choice is. I have read a lot on these message boards about how much "fun" it will be and how "cute" they will be in a stroller with no real understanding of the true risks. I think there are women like you and then there women who honestly and truly do not understand the choice they are making. One girl commented that her husband doesn't even know she is taking the Clomid! While you don't really fit into this category, I have seen a lot of naive insanity papering this board on the topic. It's not something to be entered into lightly (obviously) and I really think that women who take this route unnecessarily need to spend some time in the NICU and get acquainted with the possibilities. I meant no offense (until I was myself attacked, then I definitely meant offense). I simply meant to stongly inform because there seems to be a lot of naivete running rampant on these boards.

lovingbabies - I have been following the posts in most of the room regarding clomid and twins. I have to say that women are NOT wanting twins because it would be "cute" in a stroller or for the "glory" of it! These women have their reasons for wanting these babies and that is their choice, not yours. From what I have experience in here, these women have done their research and if they have questions they ask their doctors; then share that information with the rest of us. There is nothing wrong with reaching out to other people in your same situation for advice and rea__surence. We are perfectly aware of the risks and many many many of us are being closely watched by professionals. If we wanted someone to devils advicate, we would ask for the negativity. I appreciate that you have a strong opinion about this subject but please dont bring your negativity into a positive environment like this one. All that does is bring people down. If you would like to express your concerns about this why dont you start your own forum about this subject. I am sure that people who agree with you will chime in! Also, those of us that may have additional questions about the risks can go in there and talk to people like yourself that have had experience with this.

loving babies, no offense taken on my part at least! i didn't mean hostility just on your part - i see it on several of the posts between "natural" twin moms, clomid twin moms, prescribed vs unprescribed...i agree that some women don't fully appreciated what is involved in a multiple pregnancy (maybe very young moms? who knows - and i mean no offense to young moms either!!) but i really think most women will attempt to make an informed choice because the life and death of their precious babies can be at stake. no one wants to make the "wrong" choice. do you mind if i ask what happened to your little ones? i am very sorry for your loss. after losing a baby - in any way - the prospect of another pregnancy is very scary. i have still made no firm decision as to whether or not i will try again. i no longer have the false sense of security that as long as the baby/ies are inside me they are safe. but it is sad to think of not having any more children. good luck to everyone.

Lisajanelle, the truth is that mine were identical twins like yours, but TTTS was only one of about 6 things that went wrong. And of all the twins and triplets that I met along my journey in both NICU's, mine were the only identical ones. All of the others were fraternal babies. And Soready, there have been those comments that I described, though they may not be recent. I've read back to 2005 on some of the boards and have found some very unsettling, naive comments. Being a natural twin mom actually has very little to do with my opinion. I have lots of friends on fertility treatments with clomid or in-vitro who have twins and I'm so happy for them. But I just think (and it's my opinion) that fertile women raising the risk unnecessarily is a very odd choice. I suppose this is a hot b___ton for me as I have witnessed the life and death struggles of these babies and continue to follow the struggles of those that I met, who remain in the NICU, a few of whom still may not make it. The fraternal babies I met in the NICU were natural twins and fertility treatment twins. I'm more of a conservative mind, wanting to give my babies every chance for survival. I read a lot on the boards in the past, arguments that women only have struggles with their pregnancies (fraternal or not) because they had fertility issues anyway and that makes their bodies weaker. That just wasn't the experience I found. Perfectly healthy, fertile women with natural twins still struggled. Having twins is by no means a guarantee that you will struggle or end up in the NICU (though most twin moms will tell you the pregnancy was a lot harder), but it definitely raises the risk by a significant margin. That's my only point. Yes, all pregnancies are risky, but again, this is riski-er. By a lot more than a lot of people realize.

lovingbabies - If the post that you speak off were back in 2005 why are you so frustrate at the women who are trying for twins? These women dont have those point of views so give them a break!

 

lovingbabies - April 4

I said some of them. Some of them much more recent. Regardless of those descriptions and whether you have those very very specific opinions, it's still more dangerous to have twins and seems a silly risk if there is not other reason than "I want twins". Jeesh. I'm DONE. My foray into insanity is at an end. Signing off. Enjoy your lives. Moving on happily with mine. Good luck.

have a good one lovingbabies and i do really hope you move on happily with your goodbye
