According to recent statistics from the CDC, people have given birth to twins at nearly double the rate they did forty years ago. There’s a whole lot of weird science to it, such as hormone levels and whatnot, though I can’t say I’ve ever heard of anyone making a deliberate attempt at having twins. Still, BitLife is nothing if not an opportunity to have experiences you might not be able to have in the real world, so what the heck, let’s have some fun with genetics. Here’s how to have twins in BitLife.
How to have Twins in BitLife
First and foremost, the only way to have any control over the genetics of your kids in BitLife is if you’re playing a female character. If you’re playing a guy, then it ain’t really up to you, now is it. Any male and female couple could, in theory, give birth to twins by complete chance (2% odds), but if you’re playing a lady and want to tilt the odds, the best way to do so is through artificial insemination, or “IVF.” There are a few prerequisites to this, though:
- You have to be younger than 50
- You need to have an agreement to do it with your spouse
- You need to have attempted to have a baby normally a few times already
- You can only try it once a year
If you and your spouse are having trouble getting a bun into the oven, you’ll receive a prompt offering IVF as an alternative. The problem is that going for IVF requires both parents to be in agreement, and chances are good that you won’t be. You’ll need to have several conversations with your spouse to sway them to the idea, though it bears mentioning that these arguments are easier in same-sex couples.
Once you and your partner are on the same page, you can attempt IVF. It’s not guaranteed to work, so you’ll have to wait a year if it doesn’t take. Even if it does, you might not get the twins you were hoping for, but there’s a little metagaming trick you can employ: when you get the IVF results, if it’s not twins, just close the app entirely and open it back up. You can immediately retry the IVF procedure without consequence. Just keep rolling those genetic dice, and sooner or later, you’ll come up with twins.
