When the man has twins running in his family but it seems to only affect the women in his family, does that mean I am less likely to have twins? I don't want to confuse anyone but this is hard to explain. This is my second pregnancy and I have my first appointment this Wednesday but in the meantime his family keeps mentioning (again) how twins run in the family. I noticed it's only in the ladies though. Hubby's Grandmother and Aunt both miscarried twins and his cousin aborted twins. None of them have been born but they were confirmed. If it "runs in the family" like they say... does this pattern mean I have alot less likely of a chance? His whole family is aching for viable twins but I just kind of see a pattern. It also never "skipped a generation" like I heard it's "suppose to." I am going to look online for statistics but I was wondering if you guys knew anything about this. Thanks!
