There are really two ways to determine the gender of your twins, one via blood work and the other via ultrasound. If you do any kind of chromosomal testing, this can help determine the gender of your twins a few weeks earlier than an ultrasound. Noninvasive prenatal testing NIPT is a test typically done around 10 weeks of the pregnancy to screen for Down Syndrome. As this test looks at DNA, it will see the chromosomes of your babies. Because a twin pregnancy tends to be a higher-risk pregnancy, your doctor is going to want to keep a close eye on mom and the babies.

Battles between the sexes have been waged endlessly, but a study gave a definite edge to females. Researchers at the Helen Schneider Hospital for Women and the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University in Israel concluded that outcomes for twin pregnancy are enhanced when at least one of the twins is a girl. The study evaluated more than 2, twin pregnancies and contrasted the outcomes for girl-girl, boy-girl, and boy-boy twins. The researchers found that the incidences of preterm deliveries were higher in boy-boy twins, and the babies had lower average birth weights and lower growth rates when both twins were male. Meanwhile, girl twins had fewer respiratory and neurological problems. Interestingly, the results showed that it only took one girl to improve the outcome for a boy; across the board, boys with a twin sister fared better than sets of boy twins. Researchers cited a "male offending factor," explaining that interfetal transport of hormonal substances from a male fetus has a negative effect on the other twin.

We are thrilled with the news and are pretty sure you will be too. We even told our family to not get too excited yet. Since our journey to pregnancy was so long and hard, it felt amazing to finally feel full of joy and allow our friends and family to feel happy for us too.
