  • if your dad had twins it generally skips a generation so if you had a daughter she would be liekly to have twins, your husbands side doesnt count at all towards your chances of having twins but thats a whole lot of multiples and definitely worth mentioning to your ob when you do conceive lol its entirely possible

  • twins on his side would not matter, its another story ifit were on your side of the family.
