All I know is gods bless your grandmother and her mental health because 5 babies in diapers at the same time sounds like a nightmare I end up living for doing something I wasn’t supposed to. Was your grandfather super hands on? Did she have lots of other family around who helped out a lot?

I got pregnant the first time after years of being on birth control and only had one but I was concerned about that until they confirmed for me (three times!) that only the one baby was present. Twins run in both our families, though, and we’re currently working on #2 and even though I’ve been off birth control for a while, I’m still concerned about having twins.

Good luck with your ultrasound!

mrsclaymls : I could have written this myself. Also pregnant straight after stopping BCP, Awaiting first scan anxiously to see if there is just the one!

mrsclaymls :  I got pregnant a few weeks after stopping BCP (I was on it for 16 years) with one baby.  I was 29.  I have fraternal twin brothers but my mom was 34-35 when she got pregnant with them so it is more likely she had twins due to her age.  Thankfully my second baby at 32 was also a singleton

mrsclaymls :  I’m a twin and just getting off birth control, so will be interesting to see if we get pregnant with twins! My ob/gyn did say that you’re more likely to get pregnant with twins right off the pill. 

My brother and I were conceived right after a miscarraige – turns out there’s also a higher chance of multiples the first or second cycle after a loss which I found interesting!
