1. In Kidlington, England, 27-year-old Hayley Lampshire crossed her fingers that everything would turn out alright for her two unborn boys. The twins had a rare condition that affects 1 in 65,000 pregnancies… and only 50 percent survive. They were in the same amniotic sac and their cords could have easily become tangled and cut off their oxygen or food supply, especially if they didn’t stay still. Before she gave birth last August, scans showed the boys were actually hugging each other and hardly moving…like they knew what to do. Incredibly, they were both born healthy…. and continue to hug on each other when they’re close enough.
2. Ian and Brittani McIntire of Hutchinson, Kansas, were thrilled when they found out they were going to have twins — a boy and a girl. But that excitement turned to sadness when they were told that one of those twins would not survive. During the six-week sonogram, doctors discovered the little boy inside Brittani had a hole in his heart and an abnormal brain. Doctors would have performed heart surgery on tiny Mason but they decided not to risk it because of the abnormal brain and there was a strong chance he would die in the womb. And, as expected, little Mason died six weeks before the birth of his twin sister Madilyn. But before he died, several sonogram photos showed Mason clutching the hand of his little sister.
3. Sibling rivaly. And if you have a brother or sister like I do, you know what I’m talking about. Sometimes it even starts long before you know it starts. One video taken of twins inside the womb shows the two apparently fighting over their territory inside mom. They are shown kicking each other, with one starting the kick fight and the other returning the kicks. Oh, just wait till there are toys involved.
4. Since twins are in a pretty tight space before they’re born, they might end up hugging for quite a while. Even after they’re born, they may feel the need to cling to each other. A video clip taken by Paris-based midwife Sonia Rochelle shows two newborns hugging on each other while they are being bathed. By putting them close in the water, Rochelle noticed it made them identify with it like being in the womb and cling to each other. And when they get a little older, they’ll probably start kicking at each other like the previously mentioned twins.
5. Whitney Meyer is white. Her boyfriend, Thomas Dean, is black. Recently, the Quincy, Illionois couple became parents of twin girls — one is black and the other is white. The odds of twins being born with completely different skin colors is 500 to 1. The girls — Kalani and Jarani Dean — are medically known as biracial twins. And they are also fraternal twins, having been developed from separate eggs that were fertilized by a separate sperm cell. Strangers have trouble believing the couple when they introduce the children as their twins. And something tells me that in the future, the girls won’t see a color difference when they get older. What a better world it will be then.
