Many couples want to get pregnant with twins. Having two children who grow up side by side to experience the milestones of life at the same age may seem perfect. You'll get through the diaper period all at one, and the idea may seem ideal if you only want two children. If you are interested in getting pregnant with twins, there are a few things you can do to increase your chances of having a multiple birth.
Choose a partner who is a twin. Twins are more likely to have fraternal twins so partnering with a twin may increase your chances of having a multiple birth.
Wait until you are of advanced maternal age to have children. The older you are, the more likely you are to have twins. Women older than 35 are more likely to have twins.
Set up an appointment with a fertility specialist. A fertility specialist can prescribe medications and treatments that can increase your chances of having a multiple birth.
Gain weight. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology released a study that showed women with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher had an increased chance of having twins.
Eat yams. According to the the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs, eating yams can increase your chances of having twins. Yams are thought to have chemicals that cause women to ovulate more, which can increase your chance of having multiples.
If you really want multiples, consider adopting a set of twins.
If you've already had a set of twins, your chances of having an additional set increases.
