Twins run in the family…

…too bad I wasn’t informed until an ultrasound confirmed I was carrying more than one baby a year and some odd months ago…

I mean, I knew that I had some twin cousins; I just didn’t know that that meant I had a high chance of conceiving twins, myself.

Apparently, the women on my daddy’s side of the family are so fertile that sometimes they release more than one egg a month…

My Auntie (my daddy’s sister) has a set of fraternal twin boys (living), but I believe she has been pregnant with twins at least two or three times. (I might have to ask her just to be sure, though.) And I remember my Na na telling me something about her twin aunt and uncle…or were they her cousins?

Guess, I have some phone calls to make…

    Yes! Twins do run in the family a lot…. Papa Zeme (Onezime Scott) his father (Sostan Scott), the ” white Scott”. Papa Zeme sisters were: Mary Scott, Mallet La. Eary Scott Durousseau (your line) Eunice La, and Ella Scott, not sure of location.

    Onezime Scott had two brothers: Lemanuel and Henry Scott. Henery’s line had lot’s of grandchildren. He was known to have several sets of twins and triplets from a daughter (no name was given) she gave birth to 21 children and had no single births. Thats wild!!!

      Ken. it might sound wild, but it’s true. The daughter’s name was Doris. She was my grandmother’s sister (Selena). I spoke wth one of the twins, Carrie Scott a few years ago at my dad’s funeral in Houston, Carrie’s twin is a boy, Kerry and she says her mother had both, boy & girl twins and girl twins as well as asset of triples. We are a huge family of Scotts.

    I edited your comment due to privacy concerns. I wrote your number down though. Thanks.

    And that IS crazy..

    multiples are both a blessing and a curse…more kids to love and a bazillion diapers to change right along with them! LOL!
