i have 13 month old twin boys. brett michael and eli james.

i was a little over 9 weeks when we found out. i was rushed to the er for severe back pains, dizziness and fainting. when the er doc did the scan she saw 2 heartbeats and said all my problems was because our booger, eli, was laying on my spine and sciatic nerve. my dh did not believe me. he had to see the u/s picture when he came home that weekend. my family was really excited.

my labor last 8 1/2 hours from the time my water broke till brett was born. i had an epidural and delivered vaginally. the kiddos spent 1 night in nicu and 2 nights with me (i was sent home after 3 days) they spent 5 days in the hospital and were sent home. they have been perfectly healthy since then.

thanks heather, it is pretty awsome yes, though i should say that i wasn't actually trying to get pregnant again, it was a total accident, so you can imagine the shock i had when i found out it was multiples again and then that it was triplets, then agian it really shouldn't have been two much having already had identical twiuns and being one myself its pretty obvious that they run in the familly

i have fraternal twin girls (though they look so identical!)  that were born in august 2011. i found out at 6 weeks that i was having twins, because they did an early ultrasound due to a former molar pregnancy. at first i thought the doctor was insane lol. it was at a teaching hospital/ob that i got my ultrasound done.. and it was an intern who did it.. and i overheard him telling the main doctor there were two sacs.. i was like "heh yeah okaaaaaay", i had no idea until 3 months later that twins actually run in my family.... my family was thrilled, apparently my grandma has been waiting for twins... i had them a month early via c-section because the doctors thought that they weren't growing right. it turns out that modern day ultrasound technology actually just *****... it kept reading baby A barely 4 lbs and baby B just over 3 lbs.. they came out 4 lbs 9oz and 4lbs 3oz =]

triplets i am pretty sure have to be identical.. or two fraternal and two identical (i know that's 4.. but i'm saying originally two were fraternal, then one of the twins split off into an identical triplet") unless the eggs were implanted. but CONGRATS! i could not imagine 3 more on top of my 2.

and fraternal twins are the ones that run in the family.. because it's something that causes the woman to produce an extra egg.. identical twins are just something that happen completely at random when the egg splits.. sorry i posted so much on here everyone not trying to be annoying =/
