Multiple Pregnancy?
I was on Clomid for 4 months when I fell pregnant. I know there is a risk of multiple pregnancies but my gynae will only be able to see in two weeks time. My husband's two cousins have twins and my one cousin has twins - Will this also have a part in multiple pregnancy and how big is the risk?

I cannot give you an exact risk figure. The family history is relevant and the Clomid does increase the chances of multiple pregnancy as well.
Rather than worrying about it, try to enjoy the fact that you are pregnant, obviously after having some difficulties falling pregnant. The two weeks will then pass more quickly.
