    Fraternal! (Is that di/di?)    
    All fraternal twins are di/di.
    1 in 3 sets of identical twins are also di/di.

  • I have di/di girls.  I thought they were fraternal, but when they came out with the same rare blood type, doctors started thinking they may be identical.  They do look a lot alike to me, but time will tell!  We will see if I decide I want to do the DNA test anytime soon.

    For the mono/di ladies are you being monitored for twin to twin transfusion syndrome ? I am 13 weeks and was asking my OB to send me to maternal fetal medicine but he doesn't think it's necessary and told me to stop googling everything. I called me local hospital and told I am mono/di and the nurse said its better to get a referral from my OB and then they would see me at 16 weeks. I am so confused why my OB doesn't want to send me there.

    I'm having Mono Di girls, 20 weeks today. Yes I'm been monitored every 2 weeks as they share 1 placenta and have a sac each. All is going well :)
