What's the difference between Fraternal and Identical Twins?

We had some time on our vacation to sit down and video-chat about some different twin-topics together.
One of those topics was what the difference is between Fraternal and Identical Twins (We are Faternal twins, although a lot of people think we are Identical because we look so much alike, sound a lot alike and are the same gender).  So Becca, the midwifey lady, shared her basic info. about what the difference is.
Sorry for some of the wind muffling but Block Island was having a gloriously sunny and windy day on this day.



  1. Ohmygosh, I love you too. I know you are trying to be serious, but the Becca/Cathy funny ha ha always comes out. It is so awesome. I enjoyed Becca's "because we are fraternal" (duh!) response and Cathy closing her eyes and feeling the breezy BI breeze :) Can't wait to see more videos!

  2. I would love to meet your sister! I used to date someone who was a fraternal twin but I swore was identical to this day

  3. Awesome article. I have brother-in-laws that are twins...identical at that. They are something else! :-)

    I am a new follower via the Alexa Hop. I ask that you return the follow both ways! Thanks!


  4. You thought you were identical this whole time, since I joined your blog! You look awfully alike for fraternal. That's pretty neat. =)

  5. We do look an soun a lot alike but I do think we are fraternal. Not 100% sure but 80% sure.
