Having twins is due to hyperovulation and I believe that is what skips a generation. The gene to hyperovulate. It's mostly by chance and only for fraternal twins. Identical is completely by chance since it's only if an egg splits. I could be wrong abut the hyperovulationg. Seem like I remember something saying it "seems" to skip a generation because if a couple has fraternal twins, but they only have boys, then of course that generation won't have any (since it runs through the female). But the father could carry the gene to pass onto to other females, so if that couples sons had girls, then their daughters could have twins..
Things that are supposed to increase the chances -
Family history (of fraternal, not identical, and on the mother's side, not the father's)
Being older (some say over 30, some say 35)
Being slightly overweight
Nursing while conceiving (well, not at the MOMENT of conception... )
I don't see how nursing while ttc increases your chance at twins. hwo does is that possible ?
