I asked my SO how he felt about having multiples and he doesn’t want it. It doesn’t run in anyones family, but I am aware it doesn’t have to. I have never consider having more than one at a time— but I just wanted to know how do you feel about having multiples (twins or more)…. how does you SO feel?

Twins run in FI’s family, so we’ve discussed it. We’d both be terrified if we had multiples. I just can’t imagine trying to handle and breastfeed two starving and screaming newborns at the same time.

Neither side has mulitples, but since there is a good change we will have to do invitro I really want twins 🙂

I’ll take whatever I’m given, but if I had a choice I’d say NO multiples. I want to be able to enjoy each baby, not be super stressed 24/7…

Twins run in my family, and we’d both be happy to have them. However, this being my first pregnancy, we are relieved it’s just one in there this time. Let’s see how we handle one baby before we might have to handle 2 at the same time!

If we decide to have kids, I’d actually love to have twins.

I’m a twin. Completely unexpected to my parents (multiples don’t run in my family and no infertility treatments) but my mom was 34 when we were born so that could have something to do with it.
I LOVE being a twin. I have a twin brother and we are great friends and have always had each other’s backs. Now that we’re both married, we hang out with the 4 of us and even go on vacation together.
I don’t know if I would choose to CARRY twins, and it certainly wasn’t easy raising us (especially since we have a brother who is 18 months under than us, so my parents had 3 kids under 2!!!) but I think my parents would agree it was worth it in the end and they wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!

Twins run in both families. Fiance and I both have aunts that are identical twins. Our first son was not a twin or multiple. Im glad he wasnt and so was Fiance because I think that for the first child/children that would be difficult. I wouldnt mind having multiples now that we have had a child and kind of know what to expect development wise etc.

I would love to have twins. Growing up, my sister (1 year older) was my best friend.

I’d love twins! When you start getting into triplets and beyond, I get scared.

Twins run in FI’s family and, although that shouldn’t affect us in anyway, the conversation has come up.
We would both love to have twins but agree we would rather have them in our first pregnany than in a later one. That way we
A) don’t realize how much harder than 1 child it is since we’ve never experienced just 1
B) don’t have another young child from the first pregnancy to care for at the same time as infant twins.
Triplets and above would start to freak us both out a bit, although I’m sure we would be able to handle it if that is what life decided to throw our way.

If my first time being pregnant I had twins, I’d be happy. I’m having a pretty hard pregnancy so I’d like to get it over with at once. But that didn’t happen. My husband would rather one at a time due to money and the crazyness that comes with it, but I’m sure we’d both be super happy no matter what happens.

My husband would love twins. He always says that we could get the tough years over with at the same time! We really only want 2 kids (if we’re blessed with that many), but he would love them!
Me on the other hand…I think I would go crazy with 2! Haha…

@MuchGreater: Seeing my brother and sister in law have twins makes me not want twins. I’ve had to see what they’ve gone through over the past few years and know that I definitely don’t want twins in the future.

I would seriously take healthy Twins over no children at all.
But IF I had a choice I would rather have 2 healthy children about a year apart.
sorry but twins kinda freak me out.
