Researchers from the University of Padova in Italy conducted a study on twins in 2011. They discovered twins in wombs actually interact with each other. According to Umberto Castiello, the lead researcher, twins started reaching for each other during the 14th week of pregnancy. By week 18, they touched each

other more than they would touch their own bodies. The study had also shown that the twins were very gentle when touching each other and that, by week 18, they were spending up to 30% of their time reaching out and touching their co-twin.
