The increased chance of twins is pretty small, even with clomid. I did 3 rounds of Clomid and never got pregnant. We had our boys naturally after miscarriages and got pregnant with twins without fertility treatments. I had been looking forward to having just 1 baby for our 3rd because our boys are so close in age I wasn't able to enjoy them when they were tiny. I wasn't surprised that I was pregnant with twins for some reason, but a part of me was sad I was going to miss out on having just 1 baby to focus on. We're very excited though and having 2 so close in age, and so many twins mom's telling us they thing multiples are easier than having kids so close in age, I don't feel that twinge of sadness quite as much. It's always been funny to have twin mom's tell us we have our hands full I do think they're right though. I definitely wouldn't have TRIED for twins, but everyone is different and had different coping abilities. We see the benifits of having our boys so close, and were going to have #3 and #4 close as well because of it, so frankly I'm glad we're having twins, so I only have to go through 1 pregnancy and we can move on and enjoy life with older kids. The baby stage isn't my favorite.

Good luck!

I got pregnant with twins my 1st time on clomid at 50mg. I am having a boy and a girl. I never wished or hoped for twins as it is a more difficult pregnancy. I was quite worried about twins actually, but was told the chances were really low. There is a lot more worry and a lot more potential for problems and complications. Some of which I have experienced already. I do love both of my babies and am so grateful for them, it has just been really hard at times.

Hopefully you are able to get your BFP soon and are happy with the outcome whether its one baby or twins!

There are quite a few threads regarding this on the Multiples forum, just search for Clomid.

Here's a recent one:
Has anyone took Clomid and fallen pregnant with twins/triplets?

And a plethora of them:
http://babyandbump.momtastic.com/sea...rchid=10061081

As far as Boy/Girl goes - statistically it's 50% B/G, 25% B/B, 25% G/G so I assume if everyone answered it'd be a similar distribution.

Also would like to reiterate that the chance is small (8%ish) and the complications are very real and very scary...I was literally terrified of something going wrong when I found out it was twins (and still am at 20 wks).

I finally got pregnant with 50mg clomid. It was the first time taking it. I also used a trigger shot and had 3 eggs release. I don't know what they are yet but will find out in October. Also I have no fertility issues.

Like BabyBumpAhead said, the chances of conceiving twins are relatively low (I've read between 7-8% chance). And there are TONS of risks involved.

But to answer your question, I had 6 IUI's before my BFP. The last two cycles I was on 100mg of Clomid and I took Ovidril. My last cycle I released 3 eggs, and the Dr said that the chances of all three taking were pretty slim, but that I could very well conceive twins. I ended up with triplets. LOL And while I've adjusted to the news now (as I was not too happy about the idea of triplets to begin with) and I'm excited to be having them, the pregnancy has been VERY uncomfortable.
