Two for the Price of One?

I’m a worrier. This is not unusual, but today the craziest fear found its way into my mind—What if the doctor was wrong and we are having twins?!?
Let me explain, my dad is an identical twin. The rumor is they skip generations. Since I’m not a twin, there’s a chance I could have twins.
Let me also explain that I think twins would be great, just not right now. My husband and I are complete newbies. We know nothing about this whole parenting thing. I am an only child and he was the baby of his family. That means we don’t really have much “hands-on” experience with babies.
There is so much that we don’t know about babies, and we both have so much to learn. I think it would be a lot easier the first go-round to have one baby. Does that make sense?
I still do want twins—even though the stories my grandparents and aunt tell me about my dad and his brother are pretty scary at times. My mom says I was a good baby, but I’ve heard that saying about the sins of the father being passed onto the daughter. I feel I need to have some experience under my belt before I feel up to the task of taking on two babies at once.
Let me also say that although I’m sure the doctor is right and Little Elvis is not Little Elvi, we would obviously try our best if the doctor was wrong.
Do you think this is a valid concern? Am I just looking for things to worry myself over (this is very likely the case as I’ve always done that)?
Do you have twins? Did you have them your first go ‘round? I would love your opinions on this.

I thought it was only fraternal twins that were passed down in family. Since your dad was an identical...well, that's just something that can happen to anyone.

And it's not an abnormal fear. I have it. And I have a set of fraternal twins in every generation on both sides of my family! erk!

That's good to know. I would love twins, but I'm really glad we're starting out with one!

Identicals are not hereditary, they are just a fluke thing that happens. I had ID twins almost 3 years ago. My dad was a fraternal twin. His brother died in 99 though. I am hoping one of my kids has twins, I would love that LOL
