    I am voting Girl Girl for no particular reason. Congrats. My wife would be freaking out if we got pregnant again with twins.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Put me down for girl-girl.

    Four sets of twins in two generations of my immediate family.

    I voted for the matched pair.

    If Mrs. G and I were to have had twins, we agreed we'd find out the sexes. But we had singles (x2) and left it for a surprise. (I was wrong on both accounts -- thought the first a girl and the second a boy.)

    Good luck and best wishes!

    I'm going with girl-girl (dizygotic). Just playing the odds, if I'm reading this right...

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate.

    I'm seeing two more boys. That's the forward line covered - now you'll just need a couple of defencemen and a goalie

    I voted boy-boy just to watch you suffer with a house full of boys. I think my mom is still recovering from us three boys!

    This would not be funny if one was born at 23:58 and the other at 01:02 ?

    Girl / Boy.

    Not only have I correctly guessed the genders, but a summary of their lives appears below.
    The girl's name with be Rebecca. She will attend Villanova University and become a vetrinarian. She will live in the greater Philladelphia area with her husband Andrew, an author of technical manuals.

    The boy's name will be Adam. He will attend the University of Ohio where he will briefly study psychology. He will ditch psychology for the theater. This will concern you at first until he makes a decent living as a commercial actor. He will live with his wife in LA for a while and then relocate to Connecticut.

    You'll see.

    I went with girl girl. All the twin sets in my family are girls. That's three sets in three generations.

    Yeah, well sure Seabishop, just tell her the 'good highlights' or is it up to me to tell her about who she finds Rebecca with on March 10, 2022 - after she told her to never to see him again...and were you planning on warning her ahead of time about how little Adam almost burns down the house with his junior chemistry set while she's at the store on September 2, 2015?

    I didn't want her to sweat the small stuff. Besides too much info will make her try to alter the future. As we know from Back to the Future, that's not such a good idea.

    Please call my 1-900 psychic hotline for more info. "I sense someone on Cyburbia has a deceased family member who's name starts with J"

    SeaBishop and Maister - my poor pregnant bladder cannot take the onslaught of my hysterical laughing. OGS (supply and maintenance guys) thanks you for having to find me a new office chair, and dealing with the task of getting rid of my old one. (kidding)

    I'm betting on girl/boy, that way you can go thru 2 different kinds of phases at the same time!

    dt

    may you be blessed with boy boy twins like I am. They are now 4 years old.

    My wife has asked that our next house include a padded room for her only off of the master suite.

    They are wonderful but.....they are double the everything.
