Glad yours arrived safely,I imagine twins can be such hard work at times? If they see two at the next scan I won't be surprised in the slightest, but I imagine the self dout and panic would set in if it is confirmed there is two in there. I'm just hoping that everything is OK and even if it's one baby I won't be disappointed, I will most probably breath a sigh of relief lol.there is fraternal twins on my mums side,but my mum never had any.is there any in your family or were yours a first?

Okay, so my cousin on my Dad's side (My dad's brother's daughter) has fraternal twins and my second cousin on my mom's side (My grandma's sister's daughter) has fraternal twins, those are the only sets I can think of in my family.

Do you guys think either of these relations would have any effect on whether or not I would be more likely to have twins? I don't know the genetics of it all.

I have no idea which side passes it down either, all I know is identicals are where the egg splits into two babies and fraternal is where the woman releases two eggs, correct me if I'm wrong but I think fraternal are passed down but identicals are a fluke of luck?

Hope you manage to get seen soon and everything is OK. All pregnancies can be so different!

You can inherit the gene to hyper ovulate from either your mother or your father. So your fathers family history can influence wether you have twins, but a woman's partner has no baring on the matter.

I know there was a set of twins on my dads side. My grandad's mother delivered still born boys. But that was before my grandad was even born. No body knows what type of twins they were. No one else on either side has had any.

And yes, fraternal is a genetic trait that can be passed on, identical is a fluke. Mine are frat.

Did you know you were having twins before it was confirmed, sort of like a sixth sense or severe symptoms? Or did you have no idea until a scan.
