Conceiving Twins

So I read high levels of folic acid can increase your chances of having twins by as much as 40%. Have any of you read this or better yet, have any of you tried it? I'm already taking 800mcg a day to help with my anemia but I was considering doubling the dose. It's difficult to OD on that sort of thing, your body just excretes what it doesn't need.

Yeah, I heard that one too but it may also screw up your cycle and delay ovulation. That's a scary thought when your TTC. I just have a handle on my cycle, screwing with that makes me nervous. lol

I would love twins as well...but maybe you are researching and trying to hard for twins. Just focus on TTC and BDing and whatever God blesses you with will be a huge blessing!
