I might be the unpopular opinion here, but really women shouldn't be trying to have twins, it is unsafe. A twin pregnancy is 4 times harder than a singleton, and come with a lot more complications and problems. If you pop into the Moms of multiples board you would be amazed at how many twins are born very premature.

My twin pregnancy was awful. I started going in once a week, and spent the last month of it in the high risk wing in the hospital. In the end one of my twins passed away at 16 days old due to prematurity. I am now TTC again and I am mortified about the chance of having multiples again. I wouldn't wish it on my worse enemy.

So if you are tempted to try to have twins on purpose, please take a minute to do some research and know what the risks are.
