Totally OT, but welcome Jessica!

I've been lurking here for a couple years, and a member for nearly a year, and it will be at least another 12-18 months (or more, the way things are going) before I'll be a mom. I think this is a great place to learn ahead of time!

Yup, dz twins run on the maternal side (so your dh's family would have no bearing on whether you would have dz twins). Also, age is a big factor for dz twins, the older you get (especially over 35) the higher your chances of dropping multiple eggs during one cycle.
