According to the Office on Womens Health, women who are aged 30 years or older are more likely to conceive twins. The reason for this is that women of this age are more likely than younger women to release more than one egg during their reproductive cycle.
Are the chances of twins higher with age?
Age: The older you are, the higher your chances of having fraternal twins or higher order multiples. One theory is women age 35 or older produce more follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) than younger women.
What age is it more likely to have twins?
Age. People over 30 are more likely to conceive twins.1 This is because the hormone FSH rises as a woman gets older.
What does twin pregnancy feel like?
Many women who are expecting twins find that they have quite noticeable and very early pregnancy symptoms, including tiredness, emotional ups and downs, nausea, vomiting and constipation. Also, body changes with a twin pregnancy are much more obvious than with a single pregnancy.
When should I stop working with twins?
Mums-to-be of twins usually start their maternity leave at 26 weeks. But it will also depend on your health, how well your pregnancy is going, and the type of work you do. Talk to your line manager or HR department if you need to leave earlier than 26 weeks, if, for example, you have complications with your pregnancy.
