Can They Be Different Sexes?

by Dianne B

I am expecting identical twin boys(I always tell anyone who asks that they are identical) and I have lost count of how many times I've been asked can they be different sexes? My standard response is, they are identical it's impossible. Oh dear...

Yes, can be boy/girl

I, too, am expecting identical twins. My sister was absolutely positive that identical could be boy/girl, so she looked it up. There are extremely rare cases where identical twins are in fact boy/girl, however, there are birth defects that cause this. Therefore, it is definitely not something you WANT to have happen.

This happens to me too!! I'm only 16 weeks so I don't know what I'm having yet, but I always, always get the comment "Wouldn't it be fun if you had one girl and one boy?" I just have to wonder if anyone took high school biology.
