Some women have just simply always dreamed of having twins. Having twins is a very special thing, not only for their parents, but for the babies themselves. Twins have a built in best friend, and someone who understands them on a completely different level. Having twins is something that many couples just want to do, but are there any ways to increase your odds? Read on to find out more.

1. Know Your Family History

Well, this one really isn’t something that you have any control over, but still, you should be aware that you are more likely to have twins if they run in your family or your partner’s family. If twins run in both sides of your family, even more lucky. Definitely find out both your and your partner’s family history if you want to know your chances of having twins without really trying.


2. Eat More Dairy

It might sound crazy, but some studies suggest that women who eat dairy products are actually up to five times more likely to conceive twins than women who do not eat dairy on a regular basis. The jury is still out on the reasoning behind this one, but it’s a good idea to drink your milk and eat your cheese anyways.

3. Eat Sweet (Potatoes That Is)

In some parts of the world, where yams and sweet potatoes make up the majority of the diet of the population, twins are incredibly common. It might sound a little out there, but up your yam intake and you just may have a better chance of conceiving doubles.


4. Folic Acid

Folic acid supplements are a great idea when you are trying to conceive anyway, but women who were already taking a folic acid supplement at the time of conception were up to forty percent more likely to have twins. Definitely something to think about.


5. Don’t Diet

Now, this isn’t saying that you should be overweight or unhealthy, but some studies suggest that women who weigh more are actually more likely to conceive twins. We are sure your doctor would not suggest gaining weight for the sole purpose of having twins, however, so just be aware of this advice and do not try to gain weight to increase your odds of having twins.


6. Keep Breastfeeding

Another strange one, but studies do show that women who are breastfeeding when they conceive are more likely to conceive twins. Researchers are not sure why the connection, but it may be a reason to prolong breastfeeding if you are hoping for twins the next time around.

Be careful when and how you use it

I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.

Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment

Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
