what's the % of having twins a second time

I've had 2 single births. In between my girls I had twins (we lost them) but I am 31 and pregnant again. What is the % of me having twins again? I have twins on my side and on my husbands side.

That's a good question, but I'd ask a geneticist. If you do find out, let us know, because i'm curious!

I was pregnant with twins, but my son was born with his undeveloped twin 'attached'. Its a condition called Fetus in fetu, which is fairly rare. With no direct history of twins in either family, I was shocked that I'd even conceived twins, let alone with a condition that only happens in 1 in every 500,000 live births. My second pregnancy was single, and I didn't think to ask about the possibilities of another twin pregnancy.

With twins on both sides...that's a really hard call! good luck at finding out!

At 31 weeks I am sure you have already had an ultrasound. If the ultrasound did not show twins then I would say your % is little to none.
