What increases the odds of having twins?
By Craig L. Bissinger

You are already taking them! All of the current fertility treatments increase your chances of having a twin pregnancy. Although I share your enthusiasm, be careful what you wish for: carrying twins and caring for them after birth is a daunting task! I'm sure Fisher-Price® would love to equip your nursery with two of everything, but there is still just one of you!

Seriously, fertility medications increase the chance of multiple births significantly. Upwards of 20-30% of couples taking fertility shots have twins and more. Let's hope that you are successful and become pregnant … it sounds like twins would be an extra blessing for you.
