Identical twins are not commonly familial. The overall incidence is about 4 per 1,000 pregnancies.
Fraternal twins are more common in certain ethnic populations, such as African-Americans. Certain factors may increase the risk of having twins, such as fertility treatments and a maternal history of twins. Hope this information is helpful.

We went to doc today. She did vaginal ultra snd to find to black sacs. She said this is twins but no sign of bb hbeat anything yet. The sac in the back was also less than half the size of the frst 1.
