Twins

Two offsprings from same pregnancy is called Twins.

I am not going into biological explanations of Twins.

I am just here to share some facts and fallacies about Twins.

Hold on…i need to tell u something about Zygote & Placenta to understand things

Sperm + Egg ==> Zygote

Zygote reside in Placenta

1 Sperm + 1 Ova –>  1 Zygote –> Divides into two Zygotes causes identical twins (Mono Zygotic)

2 Sperm + 2 Ova–> 2 Zygotes caused non identical twins(Di Zygotic)

  • Father always determine the sex of the child
  • A sperm can live in uterus for 7 days without fertilizing the egg!
  • Twins need not be identical all the time.
  • Identical Twins are always of the same sex.
  • Logically, Dizygotic twins can be from different fathers!!  (A sperm can live in uterus for 7 days without fertilizing the egg – don’t imagine too much!)
  • Astrologically, Why twins dont have same luck and misfortunes?

Answer is simple -> Both cannot come out and see the world at the same time( even with Caesarean!)

  • About 60 percent of all twins are born prematurely in 37 weeks itself – You know the reason!!
  • Its not always right that the first baby of the twins which sees the world is younger. Incase of monozygotic twins, both are formed at the same time!!
