Is there a way?

There is no history of Twins in my family.
There is no history of Twins in my fiance's family.

Is there a way that we could make Twins? Or would nature just have to take its course and hopefully we just get lucky for twins...

  • Anyone can get pregnant with twins, that is right. However, it's all up to nature. There is nothing you can do to increase your chances of having twins. You have a higher change IF it runs in your family.

  • Just keep hoping. DH is a twin and my mom has twin cousins and we only got one. As did my SIL so, it's all about nature.

  • Fraternal twins are the most common and as far as they go and genetics, it has nothing to do with the father of the babies and whether he is a twin. Your body is the one releasing two eggs and he has nothing to do with that. He's just providing the sperm to fertilize them. If you have a girl, then she could very well have twins when she gets pregnant. Of course anyone can have twins, but if your SO is a twin it doesn't increase your odds in the least.
