We recently asked our community:
What was the most absurd question asked to you about your twins?
Here’s what the TwinStuff Community had to say:
They’re identical, right? (One boy, one girl….)
Did you conceive them naturally? Like for 1 that’s none of your business and 2 I was 18 when I got pregnant so why would you think I had gotten pregnant any other way than that lmao.
Are they fraternal or identical?
Did you have to wait to see which one answered to what name to decide who would be named Autumn and who would be named Avery??????
I always wanted twins…how did you make sure you had twins!?! (And yet I’m wondering what I could have done to prevent it.
Are they twins? Yes.
Oh wait they don’t look the same, they can’t be twins, they’re cousins right? No they’re twins.
Are you sure? Blank stare. Lol.
Aren’t you glad they aren’t “real” twins? (I guess he meant identical, but I said “I am not sure how much more real they could be!
If they had the same father. After asking me if they were twins. They were probably about 8 weeks old, sitting in their car seats. I just stared at the guy confused for a second and he turned beat red and walked away.
After already having 3 children, someone asked why I would go and do that? Meaning having twins…..they were naturally conceived!
My husband’s uncle asked why would I want twins. I thought he was joking.
Baby B was a pound and a half heavier than baby A. People used to comment that Baby B had to be born first because he was bigger.
OMG where did you get them?!”
Aisle 6, next to the bulk toilet paper and two packs of peanut butter.
Mine are identical – so am asked if I ever wonder if I mixed them up at some stage in infancy and switched identities (names) by accident. Response: “Probably”.
Are you sure there was no mix up in the maternity ward? (totally seriously. it was followed by a lecture on how I could have not possibly produce a blond blue eyed child – one of mine is blond – while having dark brown eyes myself. It was one time when at some point I just cut this conversation short by issuing a very rude remark about the lady’s intellectual abilities).
I had a man ask me “Are you sure they are twins?” I was so confused how he could ask such a question. I am the mom, I should know since I gave birth to them.
Both dressed in pink long sleeve onesies with denim John Deere overall skirts, both with ponytails on top of their heads- “So a boy and a girl, right?”
“No. They are both girls.”
“I could use a little boy like this to help me on the farm.” 🙄🙄“yes, that would be handy
Not as much about the twins themselves, but I had to bite my tongue every time someone would ask, so are you done having kids now?.!!!
We had a 1-year-old when the twins were born…we would have them in a three seater stroller. People would ask…
“Are they triplets?”
Now that they are 10 and 11 years old I can understand the question- because they all look the same size but when there were 2 newborns and a one-year old I had to really try to control my facial expressions.
My Boy/girl twins look NOTHING alike.
Not that that has anything to do with being identical, but even medical techs ask me if they are identical just because I say they are twins.
I always have to choke back a sarcastic response and just say, “no”.
Are they identical? Followed immediately by, they look the same, yet you wouldn’t say they’re twins had you not told me so. So why you ask in the first place!
My favorite, having B/G twins
Are they identical?
Still happens once in awhile
We had triplets but three of my favorites…
How did that happen?
Are these three twins?
Can I touch them?
Are they identical . One had white blonde hair and blue eyes, with solid build, the other was brown haired , brown eyes and tiny.
I am a twin and I have twins. My twin is a boy and I’m a girl and we always used to get asked are we identical….um…duh… also, I have twin boys and have been asked are they maternal twins LOL.
We added a cousin to a shopping cart born a few days after my twins. People would say he didn’t look alike then they would say they saw the resemblance.
You sure you can handle 18 months of pregnancy? I looked at her awed that anyone thought two babies meant double the pregnancy time
What position I used to have twins 🤨😮 I was like really all up in my space like that. I just said Im the virgin Mary and walked away.
