Hi yolanda, it's really a great and cheerful news to know that you will have twin babies to be the new family members later. Congrats for you will be a lovely auntie before long my dear. It doesn't matter whatever gender the babies would be. It's always a great pleasure to have new born babies to make our family life more alive and kicking One of my good friends has two little twin girls. They are 13 year old now. Their appearances look exactly the same. Therefore I believe they are identical twins. Since my friend is a working woman she needed two different babysitters to look after her young twins after her maternity leaves. Therefore she had to spend extra expenses to take care of the twins in every respects. No matter how, it's still worthy to have two lovely twins at the same time right?! Happy posting and Merry Christmas

hi,lkbooi,tks. hmm, it's really one of my greatest things in my life to be a twins' aunt. i didnt think that a twins will need two babysitters to look after. if so, maybe my sister-in-law needs to take care of them with her mom. because my mom needs to take care of my grandma in the countryside.

You are most welcome Yolanda I realize that how cheerful and exciting to become the aunt of a twins. As what I know it’s quite rare to get twins during birth in a family. Normally it is due to genetic factor or some other unknown causes. I believe either your side or your sister in law side having such wonderful gene Lol if I were to have a chance to give birth to twins. I would like to have nonidentical twins. How great it’s to have a couple of babies that are not being the same of gender at the same time. Yeah, it’s not easy to look after two babies at the same time. Anyway we need someone to help us to take good care of them. It’s worthy as well to pay for another babysitter to take care of them. Happy posting

Although it's kind of distant, there have been a couple sets of twins in my family. My late great grandmother on my father's side had a twin brother. And a cousin of mine on my mother's side of the family has twin girls. There have been a few sets of twins as classmates as well. I met the first set of twins in 5th grade. I never thought I'd be able to tell them apart, they looked so alike, but I eventually figured it out. LOL Happy mylotting!

my mom is an identical twin.they look exactly like.the only difference is my aunt has a mole on right side of her cheek.my mom doesn't.this ups the possibility of I and my sister to have twin babies in the future.I read that the possibility of having twins is greater in women than in men.my mom being an identical twin,I have 80% chance of having my own twins sooner.

wow..that is a great news..First of all, my best wishes to your brother and sister-in-law..And yes, I have seen many twins around me..My friend has twin babies..One is a boy and the other is a girl..And they are non-identical babies..Their behaviour and looks are different and does not have even a single similarity..And above all, my neighbour has a 5 months old twin babies. Both are boys..and they are non-identical too. One looks like his mom and the other looks like his dad. Since they are my neighbours, I get a chance to see them daily. I admire them very much. Only thing is that it becomes uncontrollable when one starts to cry. Because in seconds, the other one starts to cry too. I have a great desire to see identical twins.but I have not got a chance too..

hi, smilyn, thanks. merry christmas and happy new year. that's very funny, 'it becomes uncontrollable when one starts to cry. Because in seconds, the other one starts to cry too.' which makes me laugh a lot. well, if my niece or nephew are identical, i'll upload their pics here and let u have a look.

Congratulations to you sister in law. She and your brother must be really delighted. My brother-in-law has a twin brother and his brother lives in Canada. I know a lady that tries to get pregnant for eight years. She had identical twin boys. Her twin boys are now 34 years old. It can be challenging for people to tell them apart. It is only the length of their hair that is different. I look forward to hearing when your nieces or nephews are both. She might have two girls, two boys or a girl and a boy. Whichever she has it sounds excellent.

hi, maximax8, thanks. first of all, merry christmas, and happy new year. when my sister-in-law gives both to my nieces or nephews, i think i'll post a discusstion here to tell everybody of my great pleasure. well, but most of people hope they can be one girl and one boy. while it's very less in reality, right?

yes,one of my maternal uncle has twin daughters.but they are very different from each other.Their names are tanu & taru.They live in US.Tanu has straight hair while taru's hair are typical curly hair.Tanu looks sober while taru is kind of model material. My uncle once told us that when twins were younger they used to talk with each other in a different language they would understand each other's language but not other people do the same.

Hello friend, Yes,my grandfather(mother side) they are twins,and i had my first cousins,who are identical twins. Yah,they really look perfectly the same,the voice and almost everything. The only difference they had is...their interests,one of them loves sports,and the other one loves music. So,if we see the other one holding a guitar,then,we know it's Arvin,if we see's the one holding a ball(basket ball) it's Ariel. But,if you will see them in same clothes,you will never knows who's who. It's nice to have identical twins in the family...it gives some surprises too. Happy holiday

I have met a couple of twins. I met twin sisters in my school. They were in my class and very good friends. It was very hard to tell the difference between the two of them. However, after spending some time I understood certain differences. Their voices were a little different. One of them was a little chubby than the other. Again, when I came to college I met twin brothers. They were completely different from each other. I mean their natures were similar. But their looks were different. Their face structure and everything is different. It is really difficult to imagine twins who are so different in appearances.
