It depends on how often there have been twins in your family, it's all in your mom's good 'ol DNA. But considering that she was a twin, there are higher chances that you could have twins. Weather you would like twins or not, good luck!

My grandfather my mom's dad has a twin my mom's auntie from her mom's side has a twin and my mom's sister had twins does that increase my chances of having twins?

Yes, twins do seem to run in families. The cause is hyper-ovulation, a genetic trait to release more than one mature egg each month. This effect is only applicable to fraternal twins, as identical twins are not effected by genetics and every pregnancy carries the same chance of developing into identical twins. The exception to this is older mothers. As we age the chance of having twins increases whether there are twins in the family or not. A family history of twins doesn't make a male any more likely to have twins themselves. Men can pass the gene on to their children - it will only effect daughters, a male with the gene does not ovulate so his carrying the trait will have no effect on his wife. Any twins in the family conceived with the aid of fertility drugs will not have an effect on the twin "gene".

Can you have twins if your husbands grandmother was a twin?

Identical twins are 100% random, and fraternal twins (two eggs, two sperm) only have to do with the mom's genetics (the one who drops both eggs). The father really has nothing to do with making twins.

Who carries the twin gene mom or dad?

Mum or Dad could be carrying the twin gene it doesnt matter about sexes. Normally being able to have twins is when it skips a generation therefore if your grandparents were a twin or had brothers or sisters that were twins it generally means you have move of a chance to have twins other than your parents do although they can do. Also you have a higher risk of twins when doing IVF or having a baby when you are older.
