Identical or Fraternal?
by: Anonymous

It is very hard to tell if you have fraternal or identical sometimes. It all depends on if you had 1 egg split (identical) or 2 eggs that were fertilized. If you have 2 separate eggs, they are fraternal. If there was 1 that split, they would be identical. 2 eggs leads to 2 separate placentas, 1 egg that splits would have 1. BUT, 2 placentas can fuze into 1, appearing to be identical, but not really. It truly is a confusing situation. Also, the obvious part, if it's 1 boy and 1 girl, it's nearly impossible to be identical. It's a freaky, extremely rare situation, lol. Good luck to you, and take care! :D
