View Full Version : More after Multiples?
09-11-2008, 01:16 PM
Our first adventure into parenthood yielded identical twin daughters. The two best things ever. But let's face it, I'm worn out, stressed out, and I'm not sure I want more. It would be nice to know what just having one baby would be like, but I'm not sure I could handle the twins plus one.... much less two. Apparently, with identicals there's a higher chance of having more multiples.
The husband is kinda adamant we have more, maybe even more than one! I think he's crazy. He doesn't have to be here 24/7. He gets to go off to his job every morning. What do you do when one parent wants more and the other wants to stop? Especially with twins!

Wow. I am just in awe. I'm afraid of having another batch of twins! It would be a total life change (again!). Do your twins sleep in the same room, or do you have a gigantic house? And what in heavens name do you drive?
Thanks for your perspective!

there could be another set in there for you, but that is NOT (forgot that word:)) a guarantee.
Thanks for the clarification. I almost hyperventilated for a minute there.
Good luck! You should be nominated for super-mom.

I have 2 year old Identical Triplet Girls, I want another baby.My husband and I had been trying since February, now he doesnt want another due to the fact that there is a chance for multiples again. Last week he told me that he is getting a vasectomy this Friday. I am so upset knowing I am not gonna even have a chance of having another baby now. He done this without talking to me, and actually thinks it is funny that he is having it done and I dont want him to cause I want another baby..!!

I have a 7yr girl, 5yr triplet boys, and a baby girl. I would have more if I thought I could afford it. I sooooo didn't think that I wanted anymore children after the triplets. Don't get me wrong, they are great, BUT I was so tired and busy. One day I popped up preggo!!! UHG. I was not excited, more like frantic. Just when I almost got use to the idea of being preggers, I miscarried. I was devastated. I felt horribly guilty for not originally wanting this baby. That is when I realized that I really did want another baby, and that all babies are true blessings. We ended up trying again and we had a little girl. She is the best baby I have ever seen. I could not imagine not having her. PLUS she seems sooooo easy after the triplets.
As for my husband having a vasectomy without my consent, that would reallllly make me mad. You are a couple and that is a couples decision! Since you are married you are one body, anything he does to himself he does to you. That decision shouldn't be made unless you are agreed.

I have two older boys & then had twin boys who are now two. I would love to have another, but the thought of having twins again is hard to digest. Nobody but you & your husband are going to be able to answer that question. I personally would take the chance again.
