I have just found out I'm pregnant.. 4 weeks and 2 days I'm still in shock!!!
I am a twin and my twin is a boy! Do my chances of having twins increase or are they the same as everyone else?

Yes there is more of a chance as its the ability to hyper ovulate that's genetic my gram was a twin and I've just had boy girl twins. That said apparently there are things that can make it more likely to have twins age, height etc.
good luck and congrats on your news

Hi, I'm a fraternal twin, Twin brother, Although they say it increases your chances, the chances are still very slim!
like above said, it depends on other things to, like height and weight, the older you are, the more children you have had etc...all this increases chances slightly too....
im on my 3rd and final child, and all are singletons Lol....no twins for me!
but you never know!
be lovely to hear back from you when you find out! One or two! Or more! Haha!

congratulations when are you due?!I have a twin brother too!!!! I love being a twin we Re so close ! Are you?
im 29, 30 in 5weeks actually lol so how the hell in gonna keep this a secret at my 30th I've no idea!!!!!
id love twins but happy with me and baby just being healthy I'm terrified as I just found out but trying to stay calm and focused !

Thank you :)
Yes we are so close!! :)
There is only 13 months age gap between my other two children :) i wanted them to have the special closeness like I do with my brother, so if no twins first time round, we wanted a close age gap so they could have this! And they are the best of friends! I absolutely love it!
This time round though I was the complete opposite haha, trying to avoid twins, as we knew we just wanted one more child to complete our family 3 to us is the perfect number!!
im 29 in a couple of months! We were going to wait a little longer to start trying, but I heard that the more children you have and the older you get, the chance of twins increase slightly, so we thought we would try before 30 Just in case!!
There will be 5/6 year age gap between this one and my other too... So a bigger difference! Feels all so new again!!
Im due in May :)
do you have your scan date yet? any slight preference to gender? Xx

That's amazing holls it must be nice having your children getting on so well! I have an older sister who I am close with now but I never used to be.. It's amazing what a little maturity does lolol
I love being a twin it's such a special bond that no one quite gets and I feel so lucky!!
ive not even been to tw doctors yet!! Lol with Christmas and new year everywhere is shut so I thought I'd leave it till I was sure and nothing scary happens as I was so crampy but my tests are positive!
I have ulcerative colitis (similar to crohns) but UC only effects your lower bowel whereas crohns is your full body
so I don't know if I'd qualify for an early scan? I read all my medication and I shouldn't be taking them so I'm having a mini flare up now as I'm off steroids and other tableta I'm on! I'm really hoping I can get a scan before my birthday as its 5th feb however I don't want to take the shine off my twin by telling everyone! I think I'd be able to keep it a secret plus it's fun xx

it sure is!! I'm a very lucky mummy that's for sure! of course they fight sometimes, that's what siblings do! But they love each other more than they do fight Thankfully haha!
aww bless you! Defo get a doctors appointment ASAP, I wouldn't know about all that, but I'm sure they would want to sort out your medication!
This is so strange but my sister has just been diagnosed with chrohns! She's only 16!! Xx
