Re: Twins... identical or not?

Oh, this is good to know! We didn't know we were having twins until 19 weeks so hard to tell by ultrasound. And we can tell them apart, but no one else can... so we really don't know if they're identical or not. I've heard you can look identical and not be though... anyone have that experience?

Re: Twins... identical or not?

My 7 year old cousins are fraternal. I cannot tell them apart at all!

Re: Twins... identical or not?

We got my girls tested at dnasolutions.com for 99 dollars I did it to prove to my husband that the girls weren't identical. Ended up that they were. LOL

How can they tell from the placenta... I'm gonna have to check I knew they tested it but now I'm curious on how that works
