Well, I got smart & asked for a copy of the pathology report & there were 3 placentas, 2 fused together so that is why the report read dichorionic (2 placentas) triamniotic (3 amniotic sacs). Don't ask me why they don't consider it trichorionic b/c it clearly stated THREE placentas. I have a feeling Dr. Adam only read the part where it said di/tri & not the rest of the report. That was our 1st clue that they were more likely fraternal than identical.
THEN...the call came. This happened last Thursday but due to the power issues & chaotic environment in the aftermath of Ike, I haven't had a chance to post about it. The DNA lab called & said that the girls are fraternal. It is official, no more questions, no more comparing pictures, no more doubts...they are fraternal!
Emotionally, I am glad b/c that means each of our embryos made it but there is a part of me that is sad b/c for 5.5 months I have come to believe that my girls were identical. Honestly, it doesn't matter b/c I still love them the same. Questioning the report was driving me crazy & everyone around us (our parents) kept telling us that they weren't identical. Part of me KNEW that it was true BUT I didn't want to question the report or Dr. Adam. Todd didn't believe it from the get go & he was right. I'm just glad that the results are in b/c it was driving me CRAZY not knowing for sure.
