School has whopping 12 sets of twins

Alabama School Celebrates 'Twinsday'

An elementary school in Montgomery, Ala. has SO many sets of twins, the school decided to hold a special get-together just for them. HLN reports that there are a whopping 12 sets at T.S. Morris Elementary

But seriously - what is in their water? WSFA points out there's at least one set of twins in nearly every grade at the school.

"The school has two sets of twins in kindergarten, two sets in first grade, three sets in second grade, one set in third grade and a whopping four sets in the fifth grade." The station adds that the birth rate for twins has risen about 75 percent nationwide since 1980.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were more than 130,000 twins born in the U.S. in 2012 alone.

And it looks like the number of twins at the school will grow in the next few years. One of the moms who already has twins attending the school says she's expecting another set of twins in a few months.

Unless the parents are procreating on school grounds, which seems to be highly unlikely, I'd say T.S. Morris Elementary School has absolutely nothing to do with the coincidence.

I live in a community where twins are commonplace. Are mothers taking fertility drugs so they can have twins and get their child bearing out of the way, all at once?

Get their child-bearing out of the way?!? Is having kids a mandatory chore?

THE MULTIPLE BIRTHS COULD ALSO BE THE RESULT OF GENETICS. ALTHOUGH HAVING THAT MANY FAMILIES WITH MULTIPLE BIRTH GENES IN ONE AREA IS ASTOUNDING TO SAY THE LEAST!

I have a friend who miscarried one set of twins, then went through invitro when she was unable to conceive again. She had 4 eggs implanted and only one of them 'stuck'. That one divided into twins (yes, they are identical boys). I can only wonder how difficult it would have been if all 4 eggs developed into twins!

Wouldn't that make her an "Octomom" if all 4 eggs split ???
