Twins

Anyone have twins that did not take fertility meds, do IVF, or have twins run in the family? Just curious...and how old you were when you had them.

Did it run on either side of the family?

I am pregnant with twins now with no Ivf or fertility meds. I'm 29. Dh's dad is a twin but twins only "run" on the maternal side so that's just a coincidence. We have no twins in my family.

Re: Twins

Our twins were spontaneous with twins on both sides of the family. Good luck momma!!

I had natural identical twin boys after having 2 miscarriages back to back.No twins on either side of our family.Was a complete shock but we always like to think we had the 2 miscarriages because they wanted to be together

I've been prego with twins 3 times. All mc'd with one exception- my son David. My mom lost my twin, her mom her twin.
I have a friend that is a micro biologist out of Stanford U and she has twins. She explained it this way-
"Fraternal is from mothers side because the mom drops more than 1 egg. Identical is from fathers side- there is something in the genetic code that makes the cells split. Lots of times when someone believes twins "skip generations" it's usually because there were say fraternal twins born but they were boys so they passed the gene onto their children. Their daughters then had twins. This the "skip".

My friend Angie had fraternal twins on her side and her husband identical. Their first preg was identical twins. Later on they had a "surprise" singleton. She didn't want to risk having quadruplets (fraternal twins that both split into identical twins to equal 4) so they used birth control. Lol

Fraternal is what runs on my side.
