    Hmm... I really don't know anything about this. Sorry to say. You sure seem to have a high chance of it happening though with all the twins in the family. That's amazing! Maybe someone else knows? Let us know if you hear something somewhere else.

    Default Pregnant with twins

    I'm no doctor, but I am pregnant with twins and I have read a TON of material about twins. What I've read is, while being an identical twin yourself has not been proven to be a factor in whether or not you will conceive twins, actually conceiving FRATERNAL twins is a factor. If fraternal twins run in your family ( not your husbands family, its all about eggs here ) you are more likely to conceive twins. If you have conceived fraternal twins before, then you are 4 to 5 times more likely to conceive twins again. For example, my great grandmother gave birth to 3 sets of twins. So if you were pregnant with fraternal twins before, you could conceive twins again. Good Luck!

    I get on another board and one of the ladies has 2 sets of twins. It can happen. Wish you the best.

    Red face Pregnant w/ twins again

    Well, I am a witness of having twins a second time. My twin boys are 19 mths and I am now pregnant w/ twins I'm 4 mths. My mom is a twin and her mom had another set of twins so that's where both sets came from. And you would never believe that I lost a set of twins b4 I had my first set. So it is possible for this to happen.
