Hi, All I posted this on another thread as well.(Chances for Twins/Multiples) But, changed it around a little since yesterday and you will see why, if you read both threads. I am a regular at this site. I have been reading all of your post on and off for about 1 month now Twins and Multiples. I came across this thread by accident. I googled "Increasing chances for twins" or something like that and this site popped up. Which I have been to this site before but somehow missed this board. Anyways, enough with the rambling. I am 30 with a daughter 8 and took Clomiphene with her and got pregnant right away. Wasn't O'ing same time every month. But Doc thinks I was pregnant already when I took it. DH and I, are trying for a baby. I have always wanted twins and was happy to see that I am not the only with this thought. When I would mention this to people they would look at me like I am from another planet. I think twins are a blessing. I love babies and am from a family where there is 6 kids all adults now. :-) I have always remebered from the time I was a child I was fascinated with twins and always wanted them as an adult. So...We have been trying since last July. No Clomid or meds. Just drinking Fertilitea and taking the capsules FertiliAid. I know many of you may have heard of them. So I started both in June and July and In August got pregnant. But miscarried at 5 weeks. Stopped taking both and got pregnant right away in September, but miscarried again. :-( Doc said my Progesterone level may have been low and it's not sticking. Still did not continue with the natural tea and have not gotten pregnant, since September. I just started again in January with the natural herbs but I am questioning if I should use (Clomid,Clomiphene or whatever.) since, I am tired of being disappointed every month since. We wanted both pregnancies but God had another plan. This would be my 2nd and DH 1st child. I felt really bad because when I got pregnant the first time I told him and daughter a.s.a.p. Then lost it. Both was soooo, excited. She wants a brother/sister or both at the same time. :-) She keeps bringing up the fact that I was due May then again in June. I think that she secretly thinks that a baby is in there but my tummy just haven't gotten bigger yet. :-( I hate it talking about it. I keep thinking about it. Especially, since Angelina Brad has the exact same due date as what mine was. I know it is wrong but, I sometimes feel jealous. I pray and do wish everyone the best on this board whoever may be pregnant. But, I long to hold our baby in my arms. I know this time, I would not Bitch and complain about morning sickness. I would be sick, nasueas and tired but, will cherish every moment. (Than to ever want to face miscarriage again.) I do apologize for hogging up so much of this thread. But, just trying to give you a small but big portion about my life in the past year. So my question, finally. :-) "Should I now start trying Clomid after what I mentioned above?"I already O'd for last month waiting to see if I get the BFP. But, am planning now for this month just in case. And, since we are trying might as well increase our chances and try twins. I hope, that I didn't bore you guys and I hope you welcome me to this thread. And for those who don't approve...You are too are intitled to your opinion. *~*~*Baby Dust *~*~* To all that are too trying! Also, Happy New Year! (Even though it is now February) and a BFP for Valentine's Day.

Hi, All again I wanted this to be seperate post from the last. I have been feeling a little naseaus the past few days. I am 9 dpo. My cycle is 33 to 35 days since last miscarriage in September. Anyways, since posting that on another thread. I took a HPT this morning and got a faint BFP! Yeah! I am happy but want to confirm again tomorrow. To see if line gets darker. So, I want to know if anyone got pregnant with twins using natural herbs? Since I am pregnant now. I wonder if I still have a chance. Either way I am so happy right, now but just wondering. 1 is better than none. Thank you God! Pray all goes well.~*~*Baby Dust to all~*~*

I have heard that natural herbs will help increase your chances, but I am not sure if it is true. If you are not pregnant then I would get on Clomid and take some aspirin. Good luck, will keep my fingers crossed for I would love to have twins myself. Keep me upddated. Oh, where did you buy the Fertilitea?

Frances - February 5th, 2006 5:12 PM

Your doc should be able to get you on clomid no problem. I have heard that they can get you on progesterone too if it is too low. I think Clomid only helps you ovulate, so if you are already ovulating it may not help at all. If your progesterone levels are low that is the perscription I would be after. I hope the next one sticks!!!

Kimmie, congrats on your BFP! I hope all works out well for you. I never took herbs to increase chances of mulitples but as long as your baby is healthy, I'm sure you will be very happy.

Kimmie - February 5th, 2006 10:02 PM

Thanks, everyone for responding. Nicci, I took Clomid with my first daughter but my doc. said when I took it I was already pregnant. Either way I was happy because I got my little munchkin that I always wanted. This time around I wanted to try natural herbs first before trying Clomid again. I bought the FertilAid pills and Fertilitea at You can take both the herbal tea and pills at the same time, so I did. Hope it helps To: Frances...That was my next plan but felt a little naseaus this morning and sore breast for the past 3 days took a HPTand got a faint BFP. Looked at it 1 hour later and it was darker. Will test again tomorrow morning see if it gets even more darker. Can't wait! :-) I Already had a doctors appointment set for Tuesday, will see. To: OneTwoThree...Thanks. Honestly, I do want twins, but right now I am just so happy to have a BFP that I really don't care anymore. Just want this to go well. But still hoping. I will keep everyone updated.

Kimmie, I have spoken to someone who works with herbs and she has suggested the following to increase chances of twins naturally.... Herbs such as the red raspberry leaf and chaste tree berry are most used (by the lady) along with green tea, nettle leaf, ladies mantle and evening primrose....
Hope this helps. I have also read that increased Dairy and meat products help as well as taking Folate (Folic Acid) and Calcium tablets. I know that your post was in Feb so not sure if you are pregnant or still wanting to know this. Good Luck! Mel (Zerafa05)

Zerafa05 - September 4th, 2006 10:09 PM

Kimmie, I just reread your posts and you are pregnant :-)! Congrats! Do you know whether you are pregnant with Multiples yet?? Good Luck! Mel
