  • Unless you are the daughter of a twin, your odds are the same as the rest of the world. Think about the biology of it, the man contributes a zillion sperm, to your one or two eggs. One egg, singleton, two eggs (or more), multiples.

  • Really the odds are with you because you are the determining factor in twins, especially in they are fraternal. The odds are in your favor it seems. I had twins and they don't run in either of our families...

  • The tendency for multiples has nothing to do with the male's side of the family. It has to do with how many eggs a woman releases during ovulation, which runs in the woman's side. :) Good luck!

  • I'm pretty sure you would have found out by now.

  • I have heard that it skips generations. So if you're mother or father was a twin, you might have them. If they were'nt, but had twins (you or your siblings), your children would be next in line. Not sure if this is accurate, though. ;)
