No, none, no where. I never was even one of those girls who say "Oh, it would be so neat to have twins!" It was out of the realm of possibility in my mind.
What a surprise it was for me when we found out we were having twins.
Then my husband hugs me and says, "I knew it...I prayed for this." Well, thank you God, we couldn't be happier!
I have 2 sets of twins. My girls are 4 years old identical twins and they are the 9th set of twins in my family. My boys are fraternal and are the 11th set of twins in my family.
I have twins on both sides of my family only one other set of identical on my father's side. My maternal grandmother had a twin brother and my mother miscarried twins in her 6th month so I don't think it skips a generation.
There has definitely got to be some kind of gene connection here at least.
There are 5 sets of twins under the age of 7 now in the family. You could imagine holiday time.
wow, that is a lot of twins in one family! and your poor mom, miscarrying twins (and so late in her pregnancy!). that must have been hard.
do you notice a lot of differences between the fraternal and identical twins? besides the obvious I mean ;) i've always heard identical have a very special, almost magical bond, what do you think?
My identicals are inseparable and their teacher has been trying to separate them a little bit but they are in the same classroom, same ballet class, same bedroom (I don't have the room to separate them at home now), so there is a very special bond between them.
The fraternal twins are only 6 weeks old so I don't know yet. I have read though that same sex twins tend to be somewhat closer. My identicals are girls and the fraternal are boys. I guess I'll have to see.
Nope! There are no twins as far back as we can track in either my or my husband's families! God just wanted us to have these two little girls :)
