Anybody else pondering this at the moment ?

The probability is only one, but if its two, its rearly not as bad as it seems.

Put it this way, a coupe of years ago I had 3 children (still have) dts were 3, and ds was 6. My sister also had 3 children, 6months, 4 and 7. She said to me, I dont know how you cope with twins, I could'nt do it, so I said to her, I'd rather be in my position than yours, as you have 3 routines as your dc are all different ages, they are are different development changes, with helping themselves get dressed, brush teeth ect, and feeding, I only had 2 routines to follow, as dts were obviously at the samr development stage.

That's true and of course better to have two than none at all.
Are you a very patient, super organised type ?

No, lol, but was surprised how I dont struggle to cope like everyone assumes you will, and I am a single mum.

Am still very nervous and because it would be a concious decission, to choose twins seems a bit mental lol

But people who conceive naturally can also end up with twins, you have no idea until the scan.

I suppose it depends on whether you can afford to go through it all again - is the miscarriage rate higher with twins?

I think there is a definite risk with a twin pregnancy, plus I'd like a homebirth, which seems to be a battle with twins, hard enough with one around here.
Can't afford wo go's really, shouldn't be having one if i'm honest.
Arghhhh it's so hard to decide.
