Panicking a little - what are the chances?!

I've got 4y/o MCDA girls and currently 11 weeks pregnant. We've got our scan tomorrow and no reason to believe it'll be twins again but I'm suddenly panicking that bit could be. Don't get me wrong, we've loved having twins and our girls are amazing but I don't know if I could do it again, financially or otherwise...

Seeking any reassurance, positive stories of two sets of twins or tell me how very unlikely it would be to find out we've got another two tomorrow!

If your first set of twins were fraternal, then your chances of having another set of fraternal twins is multiplied by four! That's 1 in 12! If your first set of twins were identical, then your chances of having another set of identical twins drops way down to 1 in 70,000 or so. According to Google.

Mine are fraternal and there is no way I am chancing it!

Good luck tomorrow, do let us know smile

Thank you never! Just one this time and scan went well, so big relief. DTs are identical so should have known it was unlikely... Phew!
