Being on a fertility drug like Letrozole or Clomid brings the risk of multiples. I’ve been told that the risk of twins is increased by 10%. With two large follicles, the possibility of me having twins is certainly there. My preference would be to have a singleton pregnancy especially because I’m a fairly petite woman with a small frame but as long as I have a healthy and safe pregnancy resulting in a healthy babies, I would take twins.
With twins, I would automatically be considered a high risk pregnancy as well as a face a number of other risks, including:
- Higher risk of premature delivery
- Babies with a low birth rate
- Gestational diabetes
- Placental abruption
As much as I love the idea of twins because it would be so cute and I wouldn’t have to deal with the stress of trying to get pregnant again, I would much prefer a singleton pregnancy!
For now, I’m just praying for a positive pregnancy test at the end of this TWW!
