Twins & Pregnancy

I just wanted to know, I'm a twin and my brother has twin daughters, my Gran miscarried twins and my great-unlces are twins... What are the chances that i'll have twins? Also, are the "symptons" of pregnancy felt sooner if you're pregnant with twins, what are the other implications (physical) for a first time mom who's carrying twins and has had 2 abortions?

I cannot give you a percentage chance, but you would have quite a high chance of having twins.
There are a number of implications to twin pegnancies and I would suggest that you do a google search to get more information. The symptoms of pregnancy do not start earlier but can be more severe.
