22 Weeks

I found out that they shared a placenta but were in different sacs. So they could be fraternal or identical. They are both boys.

So I had the boys on august 5th and they are fraternal. At first they looked identical. But now are way different...

I read that even in fraternal twins, the placentas may fuse. So, you can still have fraternal twins with fused placenta's - that is, one placenta and different sacs.

Originally, during earlier ultrasounds, I was told I have fraternal twins with two sacs and two placentas.
Recently though, during the 19th ultrasound, I was told by the ultrasound tech that there's a common placenta appearing.

I have the same problem, ive been told that they are identical then they arent. Then was told that we will only know when they are born! All because they can see a very fine membrane between them!

Identical vs fraternal

how many sacs isn't the tell tale sign.....if they share a placenta that means they are identical...when there are 2 placentas they are fraternal. Congrats!!
