I love some of the ignorance in the comments, even from the doctor.... identical twins don't always share a placenta... It's highly likely that the egg split once, and split again.

There was a set of quints born in Canada in the 30's (and yes, all 5 survived), 5 identical girls. It was initially assumed they were from 3 eggs (and originally 6 babies) but later genetic testing showed them to be all identical. 5 (possibly 6) babies all from one egg.

That is just amazing. I'd be totally shocked, but I'd definitely welcome multiples. In fact I would love to have twins or triplets.
