Gemini is a case of the birth of several children at the same time to one mother. These twins are always of the same sex.
Dizygotic twins are born when two eggs are fertilized simultaneously by two sperm. In total, about 1% of the total number of twins is born in the world, with about a third of them being monozygous children.
Interestingly, in different populations, the number of dizygotic twins can differ significantly. In the United States, for example, such cases are more frequent in the Negroid race than in the Caucasian. But for the Mongoloid populations, the frequency of birth of such twins is very low, this is especially significant for Japan.
Twins are usually born a generation later. It has long been known that the predisposition to have twins is indeed genetically transmitted. But no one can say with certainty in which generation this will manifest itself. Science understands how babies are born from several eggs in the same family, in different generations. But researchers cannot predict the regularity of the appearance of twins from one egg.
Twins are always born by caesarean section. The statistics of some gynecologists indicate that in the case of twins, caesarean section may be used even less frequently than in normal births. A large number of children naturally increases the likelihood of surgery, but it is quite possible to give birth to two children on their own.
All twins are born prematurely. In the case of twins, the likelihood that babies will be born prematurely is high. Although experienced obstetricians say that for twins, the normal gestation period is 37 weeks, and not 40, as in one child. So everything is relative. A period of 37-38 weeks for twins can be considered normal.
Twins have the same set of chromosomes and genes. There are twins born from one egg and from several. In the first case, the genetic makeup is really the same. Dizygotic twins are similar to each other, like ordinary brothers or sisters. Although any twins will always have a unique fingerprint.
Twins have different personalities. It is believed that one of a pair of twins should be quiet and calm, and the other, on the contrary, stormy and emotional. In fact, character formation occurs just like in ordinary children. The difficulty lies in the fact that the twins are constantly compared to each other, so it is not surprising that each of them wants to show their individuality. In relationships between children, it can even go as far as assault. Parents should encourage their children to be a respected and independent person.
The older twin dominates the relationship with the younger. The difference between the birth of children is a matter of minutes. During this time, something simply cannot happen that will affect the development of the personality of this or that child.
All twins are psychics. The relative rarity of the birth of several children at once endows them in the minds of people with some kind of supernatural powers. There are stories of how twins feel at a distance. The twins themselves argue that this is so, although scientists suggest that the coincidence of thoughts may be dictated by the very close pastime of such people. It is not surprising that their sensations may coincide at some point.
Twins need a special approach at school. It is better to either separate them, or vice versa, bring them closer together. The question of how to deal with twins at school is a tricky one. The fact is that the permanent form of placement of twins does not suit them. It is impossible to plant them constantly together, but at the same time to artificially limit their communication. You can treat them like regular students - replant them every year, just like other students. It is better for twins to start learning together, in the same class. Separating children until they can feel independent can prevent them from focusing exclusively on their studies. In this case, children will subconsciously look for their "soul mate".
Gemini is impossible to distinguish. There are different cases. Sometimes the dear mother cannot determine where who is, but there are twins that are completely different from each other. But even in the case of identical twins, who seem to be like two peas in a pod, subtle differences can be found. Some have a mole, others have a smile. It is worth getting to know them closely and after a while the difference will make itself felt.
