Question: chance of twins twice?


 littlebit2 - Wed Nov 02, 2005 10:53 pm

Hello,

I am 33, 5'10", 160#'s. I have given birth to 6 children - one set of b/g twins, I am 6wks pregnate with #7 now - what are my chances of another set of twins?

Thanks,
Michele

According to the National Organization of Mothers of Twins, the odds of a woman giving birth naturally, without fertility drugs, to two sets of twins are about 1 out of 70,000.

Best of Luck :)
