Report as

Its the process of two sperms fertilizing two eggs. Or something like that.. Usually only one sperm makes it, and fertilizes the egg.. I think

well think about it when you were still in your mother you probably didn't want to share the small space, so I doubt anyone else would

It isn't rare any more. Multiples are common. Multiples without aid of fertility drugs is another story.

Ha! I have a twin! It's rare to have two people that can hate each other so much, yet be best friends at any given moment.

For a variety of reasons. One, since we walk upright, we lose a lot of uterine space to carry multiples to full term. Two, having one fertilized egg that splits perfectly to form identically is rare. I know many people who had two babies at ultrasound number one, and only one heart beat at ultrasound number two. If the egg doesn't split the genetic material evenly, one of them genetically can't make it. Third, the odds of a woman o violating two eggs in one month is extremely rare also. That leads to fraternal (I.e. non-identical) twins
