    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Just curious as to what the actual chances are for having twins. My boyfriend is a twin and there are 3 sets of twins in my family. We're curious what our chances would be or if it's something that just happens.

    Fraternal twins tend to run in families while identical twins are something that just happens. If twins run in your family or your mom's family, your chances of having twins are slightly increased.

    Twins do run on my mom's side of the family. And my boyfriend is a fraternal twin. We were just curious of our chances. Thank you for the info.
