In brief: Fair

Fraternal twins (non-identical) occur when a woman releases more than one egg during ovulation and this trait can be genetic.
Identical twins occur when a single fertilized egg splits into two and is not genetic. Fertility treatments also increase the rate of twins. So with that many sets of twins in the family there is a decent chance of you having twins too.

In brief: Higher than average

Multiple pregnancies tend to run in families, good luck if that's you, just try to be prepared !!
