Are fraternals ALWAYS hereditary? I can't seem to find this out! Mine are fraternal but I do not know of ANY fraternals on either mine or my husbands side! I only need to know bc my twins just turned 2 last month and I also have a 7 month old daughter. My husband and I want another baby but not 2 more so that is making us hesitate. If it is not hereditary, then mine were just a fluke and most likely we won't have any more, but if it is hereditary, then that mesans i could very easily have another set. Does anyone know if you can have fraternals even if it is NOT hereditary? and how can you know for sure if you have the gene or not? everything i am finding says that only the gene can cause hyperovulation unless you are using some sort of reproductive assistance medications.
