When I lost my twin my peri said in a very nice way that it was kind of good in a way cause I had about 10 less complications that could have happened. Then after all I went through regardless it was actually a blessing cause it would have been 100x worse to have all those issues I had with twins. I just thjnk about how hard it was with one idk how I would have handled it with 2. Plus the chances of nicu babies are higher with twins and I don't wish any parent to experience a nicu baby.

Yeah there have been so many thoughts going thru my mind and as horrible as I feel for saying this, I know that losing one or even both might be a blessing in a way. I had a lot of complications with my son who is only 5 months old, and I know that things could become very serious this pregnancy. Also, I need to be able to care for the child I have and I don't know what I will do if I end up with one or two NICU babies. I would feel bad for not staying at the hospital but I cant neglect my son who wont even be a year old yet. I feel really awful and selfish sometimes with the thoughts that come across my mind but I know its my mind just being realistic.

Awwe :( just ride it out. Whatever is meant to be will happen. Many twin mamas go FT. It's just sucks that the odds aren't on your side :( I wish you the beat whatever that may be.

wow, to be honest I never even thought about the risks with it.
I don't want to take any form of fertility drug at all. I'm not that desperate for twins lol
obviously in my mind I was like "ooh yes twins would be fun!" but that was an unrealistic way of thinking. I'm glad I got to hear all the opinions.
thank you for all your feedback and everything.
I'll be happy with just one more baby =]



and to the lady who's pregnant with twins, good luck, I hope everything goes great for the three of you.

Well I'm right, so technically I do know it all in this case. You should thank me for teaching you something instead of throwing a fit.

But where did she say identical? She never contradicted you.

Generally when people continue to argue, they insinuate you're wrong. Correct?
