  • Eat sweet potatoes. In the regions where they grow, they have the highest multiple birth rate. In fact when I got pregnant with mine..I had not heard this one but My daughter was still a baby eating babyfood. I made my own homemade baby food and she loved sweet potatoes. So I learned different ways to make them because they are so good for you and I wanted my kids to eat them. So we ate sweet potato french fries all the time....and I got prego with twins. :P (Actually it was really genetic but still makes me wonder)

    If that doesnt work..I guess you can try invetro or take those fertility pills.
    Good luck

  • Stand on your head right after, turn around 3 times, all while barking like a dog... lick the toilet, grow a third nipple, and eat lots and lots of captain crunch....

  • Clomid, if your doctor will give it to you. Gives you a higher chance of twins but doesn't increase your chances of higher order multiples much, if any at all. But a lot of doctors won't give it out unless you're not ovulating at all.
    Also, eat well. The sweet potatoes thing is probably just because it's really healthy. It's estimated that about 1 in 8 pregnancies start out as twins, but most moms lose one really, really, early on. The healthier your body is before you get pregnant, the more likely you are to keep both. Not to compare you to livestock or anything, but with goats and sheep, you feed them really, REALLY well just before you have them bred, and you have a much higher chance of twins and triplets. Because their body is more capable of handling it.

  • It's genetic, they usually say it skips a generation. My grandmother and aunt (my grandma's sister) had twins twice. My brother and his wife also have two sets of twins, my sister had twins but one did not make it. This is without fertility drugs. God bless!
