could i have twins?
My husband's mother had twins (not sure if they were fraternal or identical because one was still birth and not fully developed) and her paternal great grandmother had 2 sets of twins and 3 sets of triplets (could have the #'s mixed up a bit) let's just say she had multiple sets of multiples. Is there a chance that we could have twins? -Rikki

Thank you for your question.  Having monozygotic (identical) twins is not typically something that runs in families, but having dizygotic (fraternal) twins does run in families.  However, a history of twins only on your husband’s side of the family should not increase your chances of having twins compared to the general population.
