Identical or Fraternal??

What kind of twins are you having? Can they still be one of each if they're identical? What if you have two boys?   Oh the questions you get from friends and family when you tell them you're having twins!

fraternal twins pl.n. 
 Twins that derive from separately fertilized ova and that have different genetic makeup. They 
may be of the same or opposite sex.

identical twins noun
 One of a pair of twins who develop from a single fertilized ovum and therefore have the same 
genotype, are of the same sex, and usually resemble each other closely.

Today my husband and I went to meet with a twin specialist that I will continue seeing through out the pregnancy. During the ultrasound we found out that we are going to be having Identical twins! :D

One twin (let's call him/her twin b) is smaller then the other. As of right now there is nothing to worry about but I will be going back every two weeks just so the doctor can keep an eye on the twins. Now we just need to figure out the sex of them, boys or girls? Luckily I will be able to find out before Christmas! For now, enjoy this video of the ultrasound from today!

Cast your vote as to what you think they will be(:

Boys or Girls
