Subject:  Two types of twins
I' m surprised that you are not aware that there are TWO TYPES OF TWINS (as moonlight has pointed out).

Identical twins: Where the same ovary is fertilised and then it splits in two, so all genetic material is IDENTICAL.

Fraternal twins: Where by error, both ovaries release eggs in one cycle. So, these 2 different eggs are fertilised by 2 different sperms. SO, the genetic material is COMPLETELY different.

It is unbelievable that so many people who have replied have twins and are not aware of the two kinds. Please guys, READ....

Dear Meena,

There are two different type of tweens.
Type one Tween -- Here 2sperm fertilizes 2 overies at almost the same time and may or may not share same umbical cord and placenta or both.
They look completly different and may or may not be of same gender
Type 2 tweens --- Here 2 sperms ferilize 1 overy further this zygot (fertilised egg) will split at later stage taking exacly 50% of the genetic material , they may share same umbical cord and placenta .They look exactly same and will always be of same gender.
Further in the process of saperation of zygot if there is some difficulty , then these tweens remain connected to each others body.This condition is called seamese tweens.

Hope this will clarify ur doubt.

Hi,

I was pretty shocked to hear of your concern-its ok if twins look unlike each other-how do looks matter ??
Its the personalities that matter and you need to keep that in mind while taking care of them.
Please get this rather orthodox mindset out of your mind and enjoy your children-they are God' s gift to you!

hai, i am the mother of twins a boy and girl aged 4yrs and i can assure u that it a blessing that they are not the same. Mine are like chalk and cheese, my son is a bit bigger than his sister even their eating habits vary. I have even put them in 2 schools amidst opposition from others. U r children r 2 individuals and bring them up as seperate persons. Dont wory that u will break the bond between them because nothing can. I have experienced it first hand and it seems to grow stronger as they grow.

Dear Meena,

Congrats for having twins that too a boy and girl.

well, I think you r worrying too much about the looks of your twins. Many a times twins tend to look entirely different from each other. One of my aunt had twins like you... a boy and a girl & they both were entirely different, girl had curly hair whereas the boy had silky hair..their structure were totally different. Even now no one would say that they are twins.

So, its abosolutely normal for your twins to look different. Be cool and relax.

My twin cousins - one boy and one girl looks entirely different, they were conceived without any medication. Whereas my mom and her twin sister are look alike twins. My sister-in-law and another cousin of mine had problems in conceiving and were under medication, both had given birth to twins - one boy-one girl each. And in both the cases the kids are entirely different.
The science behind this is : The female egg/ ovum is fetilised by the male sperm and the result is the baby. In the case of look alike twins, the fertilised egg immediately after the fertlisation is divided into two and grows to develop into two identical twins. The other case is where there are two or more eggs released by the mother (normal when you are in treatment for conceiving) and each one of them gets fertilised by different sperms. They result in different babies as they were in different pregnancies.
There is nothing to worry about this. This is quite normal.
