Have you noticed an increase in twin births lately?
In the past, the birth of twins was a rare phenomenon, like magic and a miracle, but now it is relatively common to see children running around in a pair of clothes, the same as a drop of water.
1. Age An interesting reason for the increase in twin births is the increase in late births as women put career before family. Because women over 35 years of age have a higher ability to release more than one egg during ovulation. Also, the increase in the number of inseminations also increases the probability of twins.
2. Anti-infertility treatments In recent years, fertility treatments have become more sophisticated and prevent excessive twinning. However, using ovulation induction or multiple embryo transfer methods may still result in twins.
3. Excess weight Some medical researchers explain the increase in twin births with the increase in overweight mothers, which is even more interesting.
Mothers with a body mass index of more than 30 are more likely to have dizygotic twins.
4. Mother’s size Big and tall women are slightly more likely to have twins than women with a small body. However, the association between the mother’s body size and the probability of having twins is very small, so this factor is not significant.
5. Lineage Do you have fraternal fraternal twins on your side, or are you a fraternal twin yourself? Then your chances of having twins are slightly higher than average.
Also, if you have had twins before, it is more likely to happen again the next time. That’s what it means to “bundle happiness”.
6. Use of vitamins It is necessary to take all kinds of vitamins, but taking folic acid increases the probability of pregnancy, including twins.
Couples should take folic acid from the time they plan to conceive.
Pregnant women are also advised to take folic acid, which prevents birth defects. However, it is not allowed to take more than 1000mg of folic acid per day.
Interestingly, a newborn can easily become irritable while breastfeeding. The swollen and red nipples are made comfortable with twin baby socks. A child who breastfeeds colostrum from a mother who produces goridoo has a 60 percent chance of having twins when they grow up, and this is due to the fact that the twins are fed with energy-absorbed socks.
Have you decided to have twins? If yes, then the advice below will be useful. Having twins is not a game, you can’t compare raising 1 or 2 children. 2-4 times more responsibility, mental patience and toughness.
If you are going to have twins by one of the above methods, you should prepare your body very well. Anemia, calcium deficiency, tuberculosis, kidney, cardiovascular disease, any hereditary disease, high blood pressure; It is better not to get sick with minor or infectious diseases, and if you do get sick, it is better to get good treatment.
There is a study that the mother’s uterus expands 500 times when giving birth to one child, and 1000-1800 times when 2 or 3 twins are born. Therefore, after the birth, it is necessary to take good care of the baby, to be very calm, to help look after the baby in the first months, and to prepare food and tea. A mother with 2 or 3 twins has very little time to relax by herself.
If you are very tired, milk will be easily withdrawn. Breastfeeding when both of them cry at the same time is very awkward and difficult at first. It is also related to low birth weight of twins.
Good luck to all mothers who are going to have twins, prepare yourself and your husband well.
Say hello in pairs, my rare motley children
