  • Yesterday while making breakfast, my boyfriend cracked open an egg... Two yolks! This morning, I just cracked open and egg... Two yolks! Good fortune or pregnancy, I'll be happy with both! If I don't start my period by the end of the week, then I'll have to take a pregnancy test!

    • Okay so on Friday 04/21/17 I cracked an egg with 2 yolks in it. Yesterday cracked an egg in the morning with 2 yolks. Then later on that day cracked another egg for a cake and it had 2 yolks in it and now this morning cracked an egg for breakfast and same thing 2 yolks makes a total of four 🙃🙃🙂what does it mean I'm freaking out.

  • I had two sets of twin yolks two Sunday mornings in a row. The day after the second set I found out my baby had passed and was going to be stillborn at 38 wks.

  • As someone who raises chickens, you will find double yolk eggs are very common. Especially, in younger hens. Not much of a omen, I would say.

  • Today making breakfast, I cracked an egg that had two yolks! I got freaked out so the first thing I did is google it lol, now reading all of these comments on the page I'm starting to think I might be pregnant:) me and my fiancé have been trying for another baby for a while now:) who knows maybe I'm pregnant:) I'll wait one more week to take a test!:)

  • I was cooking breakfast Saturday at the restaurant and I not only had one double yolk or two or three... or even a dozen. I had 22 double yolk eggs!! I'd love this superstition to be true :)

  • I once had a dream that I was sitting on two large round eggs then I picked one up and ate it. A few days later I found out I was pregnant. Then this morning for the first time ever I cracked an egg into a frying pan and saw two yokes. I am 5 weeks pregnant. My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for a year. I definitely think it is a sign if you look at it right. I'm hoping it's not a sign I'm having twins, though before I got pregnant my four year old told me she had been praying for God to put two babies in mamas tummy. We'll see.

  • I pulled 3 eggs out of fridge all 3 had a double yolk. Wish I could post the picture on here. I am now curious.

  • So im 5 months pregnant and boiled eggs for supper and when i cracked the first two to eat they both had double yolks.Haven't gone for scan yet wonder if I am having twins... :)

  • It all started with finding a twin potato when got some out to prepare for dinner. This morning I cracked an egg with double yolk and this afternoon two more eggs with double yolks. Is it an omen? I have been praying for twins. My mother-in-law is half of a fratenal twin. Her niece and nephew are fraternal twins. My sisters are identical twins so are 2 sets of second cousins on both my parents side. Then my dad has couple grand aunts that are twins and 3 who are triplets. Hmm...
