This weekend is twins weekend and the 34th Annual Twins Days Festival kicks off in Twinsburg, OH. I know we can't make it out to this festival any time soon, but I think the girls would love to go to this when they get older to meet other sets of twins and celebrate the fact they are twins and they share that special connection with other 100,000 new twin births every year.
The states with the largest concentration of twin births each year include: - Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Jersey
Ironically, the states with the lowest number of twin births include - Arizona, Alaska, and New Mexico
Although fertility drugs play a big role in the incline of twin births nation wide, and we are a part of that statistic. A combination of the fertility drug Clomid and IUI produced our precious fraternal twin girls.
IGBO-ORA Africa has the highest concentration of twin births at 4x the national occurrence of twin births. Researchers think that a diet rich of the Cassava plant is what leads to the high number of twin births.
My name is Amy and I am a divorced mama of twin girls This blog tracks our lives and struggles with infertility, pregnancy, and the premature birth of my twin girls. My twin girls arrived almost 2 months early weighing 4lbs 6 ounces and 3lbs 12 ounces. They had a month long journey in the NICU and now they are big and healthy. This blog is dedicated to the events in our lives so our girls can look back on how far they have come.
