^This. TJ being a twin has nothing to do with whether you'll have twins.

I, on the other hand, have twins on my grandmother's side of the family, several times over. Joy.

We have a 1 year old and a soon to be 2 year old here now. Twins cannot be that bad comparatively. I will be in awe I'm sure when they are 2-4 and we will have the highlander/lord of the flies phase going around here.

In all seriousness look within your own family. Odds are if no one has twins you probably won't either unless you're on fertility drugs.

I laughed way too hard at this.

Generally the number of babies comes from the mothers side

My birth mother was a twin. I am not, nor did she have any other twins93 kids all 3 where singles). Same with her twin sister, all singles. Sometimes it may be a fluke as to why a set of twins pop up. BUT if there is alot of twins being born with in a family, I would worry. But as was stated its primarily on the females side that determines if there is twins or not. That is not to say any daughters you have won't have twins, if their father was a twin.

Twins also tend to skip a generation.

I'm so embarassed to admit.. but I didn't know till last year that if 2 eggs dropped and are fertilized the twins are fraternal! A friend told me and I freaked bc I thought all twins were created when 1 egg split but that would be identical twins.

It would be your mom's family you want to know about, not your dads
