Just got lucky! :) twins don't run in the family at all. Mine are identical girls :) after a few days after I found out I was pregnant I told my hubby and mom that I thought there was two babies, they write me off as crazy. Then two days before my ultrasound my best friend who I've known my whole life (that is also pregnant) had a dream I was having two babies. ultrasound came along, what do you know TWO BABIES! lol :)

I'm 20 years old and was not taking fertility drugs, in fact it was a surprise pregnancy! At 18 weeks along I found out I was pregnant with identical twin girls :) never in a million years did I guess I would ever have twins.

I did not take fertility drugs, and my pregnancy was an accident- I was using the Sponge at the time. I know several people who have used IVF and have had multiples (one woman I know had triplets). I would say, if you decide to do IVF with the hope of having multiples, be prepared for more than two!  It is a personal choice, obviously  between you and your partner. Have you talked it over with your OB?
