  • I don't twins are 5 and I still don't know! lol. When I was pregnant with them, they told me there was a 90% chance they were frat. because they were in separate sacs and there were two placentas. But if the egg split really early on after conception, then there was still that 10% chance they were identical. They said they would test the placentas after they were born, but if they did, no one told me the results, and at the time, it didn't matter to me, all that mattered was that they were okay (born 2 months premature). Once they were 2, the doctor told me there was no way they could be frat. because there were too many things that were a like. I don't know though, to me they don't look a like at all, but no one else can tell them apart! lol.

  • If they're different genders, you'll know they aren't identical. If twins run in your family, that would most likely be identical, whereas fraternal twins are not genetic. Good luck!
