Just for Fun!!! More Twin Trivia!

I always thought it would be fun to be a twin . . . when I was growing up there was just one set of twins in my grade in school, but now days, twins are much more common. Did you know . . . 
  • In 1980 nearly one in every 53 babies born in the United States was a twin! In 2009 nearly one in every 30 babies was a twin! 
  • Examining 3D ultrasound images, a study in Padova, Italy found twin fetuses start deliberately interacting at 14 weeks.
  • About 25% of identical twins are called mirror image twins. They are identical, but in the same way as your reflection in a mirror is an identical image of you. For example, if one twin has a mole on her right cheek, the other will have a mole on her left cheek.
