My twins were di-di, but for months everyone has asked if they are identical. Although I can see all the differences between them, I know they look very much alike, and most of my friends/family cannot tell them apart. Even my husband can be fooled sometimes (as have I been twice at 4am!!
) A friend of ours had a DNA test kit she hadn't used, as she found her triplets were identical via a placental biopsy after they had purchased the test. So, she offered it to us, we did the cheek swabs, and sent them away (fittingly, on the way to the christening of another set of trips!)
Anyway, we got the results today and everyone who mixes them up can stop feeling stupid - they are officially monozygotic (identical)! I think I would've been surprised if they were not, but it is still weird and somehow surprising to learn that they are. I just never imagined having identical twins - it always seemed so exotic to me.
Of course, the people I've told IRL all say "Well, duh - we could've told you that!" LOL! It means nothing really, but it's nice to at least be able to answer the inevitable question with a definitive, rather than "Well, we think so..." and have them look at us like we're idiots for not knowing.
