I have 2 sets of fraternal girls, all conceived naturally. They are 10 1/2 months apart. The younger set was an "oops" and were due on their sisters birthday but came 6 weeks early. They are all 6 years old now, with the older set turning 7 in October. They are all in first grade and doing wonderfully. My doctor told me the chances of having two sets of twins was 1 in 8,100 (of women who has one set already) I thought the odds were much higher, so I was amazed. Would love to have a set of boys now, but am thinking maybe we should not go for it. Best of luck to all of you!

My grandmother had two sets of twins (my mother being one of them) and her sister (my great aunt) had three sets. No one had twins since until...surprise! I had twins in May 04. They are two perfect little fraternal boys. People in the store stop and go "oh no, double trouble" and my reply is always the same "no way, they are a double blessing!". Congrats to all the multiple parents out there!

I am the father of two sets of twins 14 months apart, older are girls and younger are boys. I am posting this hoping to get ideas of ways I can help my wife, I really think the kids are driving her over the edge and I need to find ways to make things easier for her and help her get her happiness back. She is all work and no play and trying to keep the house perfect is driving her crazy(literally). Any suggestions on things I can do to help her out the most would be greatly appreciated.

My daughter-in-law just found out she is having twins -- again!! They have a set of 16 mo. old boys! I had no idea how prevelant multiple multiples are! We are thrilled, but is there some place you can get assistance? She's going to need all the help she can get until these little guys are more able to help themselves. I'm glad I found this site -- just reading over what you guys have to say helps put this in better perspective -- in other words, it CAN be done!!

Hi Emma,

Not sure if you will ever read this because you are probably too busy changing diapers all of the time. I hope your
pregnancy went well and the babies arrived safely. Did you have identical twins again, and what was the sex? I hope
they are healthy as are you. My wife and I have identical twin girls that are 2 1/2 years old and identical twin boys that are 5 months old.
Quite a wild time. My mother in law is a huge help for us. She lives only 25 minutes away and stays with us during the week to help with the kids.

Did you find any help and/or has your husband with you on a more full time basis? I hope you are managing well.
You mentioned that you live in Georgia, as do we. We live in Marietta, 15 miles north of Atlanta. What part of the
state do you live in?

Feel free to email us with any questions you may have. If you live in the general area, we should get the kids together
to play.

Good luck and God Bless,

Mike & Susan Boland

Does anyone know the chances of having another set of twins (either identical or fraternal) after having identical twins? I miscarried identical twins and I'm wondering what my chances are of having any more.

Hi! I have two sets of spontaneous twins. The odds of that occuring are:
If both sets are fraternal, the odds are 1 in 3,000
If one set is identical and one fraternal (which is what I have) the odds are 1 in 10,000
If both sets are identical, the odds are 1 in 70,000.

I am writing a book about twins and this came up in my research!
Stay Well!!!

Hi, I am a 22 years old mum of two years old boy/girl twins. My husband and I are planning on getting pregnant in a few months. I was also wondering what was the likelyhood of a second set? Am I crazy to want a second set?? I'm dreading another multiple pregnancy but I dream of having two more! Can someone bring me back to earth! Thanks , Cathy - mom of Ethen & Ella 2 years old.
