Are Fraternal Twins genetic from the father or mother's side??
Hello guys! I just found out that I am pregnant with fraternal twins. Twins do not run in my family. My boyfriend's great-grand father is a fraternal twin; but he has other children and they aren't twins. I have two other children who aren't twins. I am 28 and African American. I heard that African American women have higher chances of conceiving twins, and women over 30. I also read that fraternal twins are hereditary through the women's side since a man can't make a women ovulate two eggs. My doctor's aren't able to give me a straight answer. Can you still have twins if they don't run in the mother's side of the family? I'm just confused, excited and shocked at the same time.
