Increase Your Chances of Having Twins

By Edited Apr 26, 2015 0 3

There are many different reasons why a couple might want to have twins. Some women only what to go through one pregnancy so having twins gives you a full complete family all in one shot. Some women have trouble conceiving, a twin pregnancy may likely be her only one. People are fascinated by twins. I always said it would be neat to have twins but I can tell you my husband almost passed out when he found out I really was pregnant with twins! Even though giving birth to twins is usually pure coincidence there are several theories to improve your chances of conceiving twins, be warned though some of these methods could result in triplets or more!

Things You Will Need

Please read article to decide which method you would like to try in order to determine what you will need.

Step 1

Eat Yams. Yes those ugly little orange potatoes have been found to have a link to conceiving twins. This was discovered when a middle eastern tribe of people in whose diet yams featured largely was found to have a very high amount of twin pregnancies.

Step 2

Breastfeed Your current baby-Studies have shown that if you are breastfeeding your last baby when you conceive than you have increased odds of a multiple pregnancy. Scientists think tat the reason for this is that while breastfeeding your body is depleted of your usual calcium supply which affects a woman's eggs during conception and ovulation.

Step 3

It has been proven that the older a woman is and the more children she has already given birth to, the more eggs are produced in each cycle. You can increase your chances of giving birth to twins by waiting longer in your life to conceive. I can attest to this one, my twins were born when I was 37 years old.

Step 4

It has been proven that the older a woman is and the more children she has already given birth to, the more eggs are produced in each cycle. You can increase your chances of giving birth to twins by waiting longer in your life to conceive. I can attest to this one, my twins were born when I was 37 years old.

Tips & Warnings

When you have your twins, enjoy every second-you are doubly blessed!
  • Remember when planning a multiple or twin pregnancy that this will be considered a high risk pregnancy there are added risks involved.
  • Even though you will hear people say things like Awww Two for the Price of One- that is surely not true, it is Two For The Price of Two! make sure you are financially stable before trying to conceive twins; it is very expensive unless you end up with a reality show and have a bunch of stuff given to you.

    Ha, ha! I liked the "two for the price of one" idea! I think it's rather two for the price of four, as it's much difficult to take care of two infants at once. Imagine only if both of them need diaper change in the same time: one of them would have to wait and cry, if the mom doesn't get additional help.

    Most mothers of twins I know not have help-we are not celebrities! One of the first rules of twin parenting is you sometimes have to let the other baby cry!
