My husband and I did IVF. We learned early on (around 6 weeks) that they were identical twins. They said this was because of the shared placenta and the thinness of the sacks for each baby. We went for the big 18 check up and learned one is a boy and one is a girl. The Doctors are all stumped and don't quite understand what the heck is going on. We are now concerned because our specialist is confused. They mentioned Turners syndrome, but said the ultrasound shows 2 healthy growing babies. Usually with Turners syndrome you can tell because of the babies skull and neck. The doctor mentioned the fusing of the 2 placentas, but mine happened so early he never heard of such a thing. So of course now we are extremely freaked out. Has anybody ever heard of such a thing?

Thanks for your help!
