Does anybody know for sure what the chances are of having another set of fraternal twins after giving birth to a set a year ago?????

I am pregnant now unsure what it is or how many I am having.

Twins run on my boyfriends side not mine

  • One in 3 000, which is very remote but four times higher than for a woman who's never had fraternal twins. It's nothing to do with your partner. Fraternal twins happen because you have released two eggs in one cycle.

  • You are more likely than most women in their pregnancies to have fraternal twins, but the chances are still very small. Very very small.

  • Twins on the father's side have NOTHING to do w/ it. at all. Fraternal twins are releasing of two eggs. That can be genetic on YOUR side.
