  • Fraternal twins run in families. Identical twins do not, it's just a fluke.

  • We had twins in several generations and then it skipped one .Mine were the only fraternal twins and the only to survive.I had 2 single births before I got them.My Dr warned me of them because my first 2 were very large.Then I had the tubes tied because they said triplets could come next.4 is plenty.
