    HI and welcome!

    There is always hope for a girl no matter what.

    Di-Di means your twins are most likely fraternal and may be a BB, GG, or BG (so that is extra chances at a girl)

    Twins are always high risk, please don't worry about that. It says nothing about the health of your babies. It's just a way for them to categorize you needing a little extra attention medically to make sure you are having the healthiest pregnancy you can.

    If they did do the blood test and find one or the other was chromosomally abnormal (which the chances of that are very much in your favor that both babies are perfectly healthy) then they would use ultrasound to detect some small abnormalities that are present in babies with chromosomal problems.

    Thank you Atomic! My son had no issues at all so it freaks me out when they say I am high risk. My dr office just scheduled me for my early risk assessment 12/30 as well as my Materni21 test. B/G would be my ideal outcome but as long as they both are healthy I am obviously happy!

    I was just thinking my husband is a fraternal twin does that increase my chances of fraternal boys? Or twins for that matter?

    No- fraternal twins only run on the woman's side since it is the woman who has to release more than one egg. Hubby has no influence on twins.

    Don't be freaked!! Twin pregnancies just need a little extra "love".

    To the best of our knowledge what your hubby brings to the table can't control fraternal twinning - you personally have to release more than one egg.
