And I've heard that having twins always skips a generation. So your child would be more likely to have twins.But as far as you having a possibility of having twins, you have just as much of a possibility as somebody who has no twin relatives. You may have more of a likelyhood to have twins. Depending on if you are a fraternal or identical twin. Having fraternal twins is said to be a genetic trait, called Hyper Ovulation. As fraternal twins are due to two eggs being released during ovulation as opposed to one. However, if you are an identical twin you are no more likely to have twins than the person who is unrelated to twins. And, just for those of you who don't know identical twins are a result of one fertilized egg splitting into two (or more) embryos, which is why they are identical.All of this information is simply what I have heard, none of it is proven or quoteable. Just sharing my thoughts :)
