Any tips for baby twins

Post by joeyy » Fri, 04 Oct 2019 1:35 pm

I am wondering, is there any tips to conceive a pair of baby twins? Or does it really have to run by genes and only rely on luck. haha :lol: :lol:

Fraternal (nonidentical) twins occur when two or more eggs are fertilized during one pregnancy, usually during the same cycle. Sometimes twins do happen because of genetics.

I think it's more genetics? Coz I always hear that having twins runs in the family, and may tend to skip generations.

I hear that genetics for twins runs in the male's family? Can any experts confirm this?

Genetics and IVF increase the possibility of twins.

women have a “going out of business sale” situation with their eggs as they get older.

does not always result in a viable pregnancy but the chances are higher with older women.

I believe the only way to increase chances are through IVF as more eggs are implanted to increases chances of pregnancy. Other than that, I believe it's largely genetic. My sister-in-law has a pair of twins, and she herself is a twin.
