Why can't the likelyhood of an egg splitting be gentetic too? I have heard that it is genetic as well. I don't know of one person in my or my husbands family that has twins, now or in the past. Mine are fraternal.
I also have a friend who has tons of twins in her family and during each of her pregnancies she had herself checked for twins and the last pregnancy she got her fraternal twins. Who really knows?

My HCG was always smack in the middle of normal at all my tests. So, it is different with everyone.
