How to make twin babies

Twins and triplets are conceived in two different ways:
-when two or more eggs are released and fertilized, the result is nonidentical twins;
-when one egg is fertilized by one sperm and then divides into two separates zygotes, the result is two separate embryos. These share identical genetic structures and will therefore become identical twins.

The number of twin pregnancies has doubled compared to a generation ago. Twins now make up around two percent of all pregnancies-partly because of recent medical advances, such as in vitro fertilization and fertllity drugs ( both of which carry an increased risk of multiple pregnancy), and partly because women are having babies later in life.

Women over 35 have a greater chance of conceiving nonidentical twins because they are more likely to release more than one egg per cycle. \

Nonidentical twins also run in families. However, there are no factors that increases the risk of conceiving identical twins.

      I was so worried I would have twins. They run on both sides of my family as well as my husbands plus I was 34 when I got pregnant, the doctor kept telling me the chances were a lot higher. I was very glad when it was just one. I mean I would have loved twins but one was enough! Lol :-)

      We are...every generation on both of my parents sides has at least one set, some have two. Plus my mom was the one in her generation to have twins but they didn't survive. So I was nervous! My generation is the only one without twins and I was the last to have kids. They were all hoping. Lol

        Twins are adorable but you need to have someone to help you take care of them. I love them but they are a lot of work .
