Options of twins

In case it becomes clear that the woman expects birth of two children at once, such pregnancy can represent one of two options. The first of them - formation of so-called monoovular twins. It happens in case in the course of conception of the child one ovum was impregnated, however then for one reason or another it was divided into two absolutely identical parts. In this case future children will also resemble identical, that is very at each other.

The second option of development of pregnancy in case of simultaneous existence at once two fruits - formation of nonidentical twins. This exceptional case represents a situation when in the course of conception two ova are at the same time impregnated at once.
