2 ways: 1. A single egg and a single sperm create a single embryo that splits in two very early in pregnancy.
2. Two eggs are ovulated and each gets fertilized with a separate sperm.

Will I be able to work while pregnant with twins?

A Verified Doctor answered
Yes: You might be able to work until you deliver. It really will be a week to week assessment. Some women have no problems during a twin pregnancy while other women may develop preterm labor or blood pressure issues that necessitate bedrest.

Fertiltiy treatment: Fertility treatment accounts for half of twins today. The other half are from ovulation of two eggs, fraternal twins, or an embryo split, identical twins. The risks of a twin pregnancy, to both baby and mother, are higher than a singleton, so get the facts before pursuing multiples!
