No, most pregnancies do not start out as twins. When the ovaries release two eggs and both are fertilized then will twins be born (fraternal/nonidentical twins). Or a fertilized egg may divide before implantation resulting in identical twins.

Twins run on my aunts side i figured it wouldn't affect me.
