You have about a 1-2% chance. If it ran in your family, you would have about a 3-5% chance. It wouldn't matter if it ran on your DH's side.

Since you are so young, your chances are actually not that high. My question to is WHY do you want twins? People often think it is a two for one. It isn't....trust me it is TWO to the expenditial. Two babies are very difficult to be pg with, tough to deliver and the first year is crazy. I always wonder who in the world would WANT the attention that twins brings. Complete strangers touching and asking very very personal questions about you and your babies. IT is tough trying to cultivate their individuality. It is tough to give them your attention, and if both are crying you have to make the decision which to pick up. I love my girls...and many of you will read this and intepret that I am bitter and don't appreciate them, but I am aghast at the naiviete that people have concerning multiples. Usually people who say "i want twins" have no fing clue what they are asking for. And btw knowing someone who has them or babysitting a set...is NOT the same as YOU carrying them and parenting them.
