Hey 1PLUS2 - I saw your note in another thread...

"I read a blurb in a twin magazine the other day that said that they think there is a link between mothers who are bf'ing when they conceive and monozygotic twins. I was still bf'ing when I got pg so that was kind of cool."

That is interesting to me as I was BF'ing ds when I got preg with my MZ girls. I'd love to get more info on that if you or anyone else has any!

MZ sweet baby girls : edd 7-4-04 (40w)

Me too!

Though...I'm really interested to know WHY they think that matters.

From what I remember, it said that the reason they think there is a link is because women who are bf'ing have a lower level of calcium then a woman who is not bf'ing. The outer layer of a woman's egg is either made of calcium or has calcium in it and so if you are bf'ing and ovulating, your eggs have a lower level of calcium which makes them easier to split. Did I make that clear as mud?

I don't have any other info but will search around to see if I can find any.

My bigger question is...what is going to happen to me when I am TTC and still nursing twins?!
