Maybe I Am A Supermom

A new study shows mothers of twins may live longer than mothers of singletons. Crazy, right? It said that moms of “natural” twins (side note: I hate that term, as if using any type of fertility treatment makes your kids unnatural) like our girls are may be physically stronger than non-twin moms to begin with. The mere fact that they conceive and carry twins is a sort of marker of a healthier, more evolved reproductive system. The twin moms in the study lived longer, had longer reproductive life spans, needed less time to recover between pregnancies, and had more children overall than those who did not carry twins. One researcher even called these women “remarkable, physically exceptional people.”

Booyah.

Very interesting stuff! Click here to read the full article.

*Please do not read too much into this post, I am certainly not claiming to be some amazing physical specimen. I just thought it was interesting and I was trying to be funny.
