    Default For those not sure about having a third....

    I've seen this happen so many times now. Well okay only 3, buuuut ..... Rebecca Judd just gave birth to twin boys. She already had 2 children.

    Same thing happened to 2 friends of DH. They had 2 kids each, decided to go for a third and got.... Twins - voila - 4 children!!!!!

    Anyone else know of others who have had the same thing happen? Is it that common? Is there anything medical that increase the chances of having twins the third time around?

    PS I want to know either what her skin care regime is or what make up she wears. She always looks flawless!

    My guess is that by the time you have your third you're generally older and there's a higher likelihood of twins as you get older.

    I do know two people this has happened to though!

    Thinking of number 3 @A-Squared?!
    I don't know anyone this happened to but I know a couple of families who had twins second time round so went from 1 to 3. No thanks! One is more than enough for me

    That is my fear being an older mum. I've got 2 9 and 11.5wks I'm 39. My eggs will drop like flies. I've had 2 miscarriages non identical before as they run in my family

    As for her skin. Make up artist and unlimited supply of cash to have facials. She'd have to have some sort of help surely

    Do you think this would be the case even after the birth?

    A friend of mine had a singleton then twins. She was well and truly done after the twins arrived. She did however tell me about a friend of hers who had exactly the same as her (singleton then twins) and decided they wanted a fourth. She then proceeded to fall pregnant naturally with TRIPLETS
