To some people, the thought of having twins is terrifying. But to others, having twins is a lifelong dream. I mean, let’s face it, twins might be double the work, but they’re also double the cuteness, too! If you’ve always wanted a big family, twins might be the fastest way to get there. Plus, few bonds are as special as that of twins, and some parents truly want to see their son or daughter grow up with a lifelong best friend. Unfortunately, you can’t just “request” twins – it’s something that happens naturally, leaving a mother-to-be with nothing they can do about that matter. Well, while you may not be able to make yourself have multiples, some natural characteristics that have been scientifically proven to lead to the birth of twins. Check out these 11 traits – if any of them apply to you, you are more likely to see twins in your future!
A study published by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology has linked the birth of twins to women of above average height. For the record, the average height of an American woman is 5′ 4″, with the worldwide average being around the same. Although it is not a sure-fire fact that women taller than 5′ 4″ will have twins, the research in this study found their chances increase exponentially.
