there are a lot of things that factor into figuring out if they are fraternal or identical. First if there is more then 1 placenta. Another is if there is a dividing membrane between them. Those are the 2 big ones I remember from my pregnancy with my twins.
I just wanted to add a few early u/s pics from my twins
as you can see they are in different sacs. They are fraternal

Yeah as far as she could see there was only one placenta.That's why she said identical.Here are mine.I can't wait to get another ultrasound when i'm further along.I'm hoping they'll be able to tell me more by then as i was so early with this one.
Our second U/S is on Monday ( I should be 8wks 2 dys) ... we will have the twin thing confirmed then. From what we could see last time (I know I haven't posted the first u/s pics yet!) there are two sacs each containing a "fetal pole". 1 had a heart "flicker" not a full heartbeat and the other hadn't kicked in yet. The DR said not to worry ... it was still early then, thus the appointment on Monday to confirm EVERYTHING. He actually saw a third sac but it didn't look like it had any contents. I guess if all goes well ... they will be fraternal based on the 2 separate sacs. I'll keep ya posted ...
There must have been something in the water we all drank in Jan/Feb !! Hahaha
