Preparing for Twins: A Secret to Finding out Before they're Born

A new study finds women who are tall are more likely to have twins.

Researchers compared the heights of women who gave birth to twins or triplets to the average height of women in the U.S., and found mothers of twins were more than an inch taller than the average.

Experts say insulin like growth factor, a hormone that is more common among tall people, may be the reason for the spike in twins.
