  • The statics for having multiples run from the maternal side, so bonus points for your grandfather...........
    Have you had any other children? Are there any potential health issues/bad habits that need to be addressed?
    I hear eating lots of wild yams may have an effect.........
    Good Luck!

  • well, i'm not 100% sure what your chances are, but it seems likely that it may happen again. You could always talk to your doctor about getting on a fertility pill to increase that chance a little more. I myself was a twin, but my twin brother was miscarried when my mom was 6 months along. Twins run in both sides of my family, but my moms first pregnancy(with me) was the only twin pregnancy she had. So, considering that everyone is different, I can't say for sure, but anything is possible. Talk with your doctor to see...
