What are the odds?

OK--so Mike and I were both 31 when we had the girls.

The odds of us having spontaneous fraternal twins: 1.7% or 1 in 60

Our odds of having a child with DS (without any testing) was: 0.02% or 1:800


The odds of us having one twin with DS? The jury is still out on this one but someone on our multiples list serve estimates it to be, drum roll please....

1:80,000!!

We do not play the lottery nor do we do pull tabs but I would bet that the "odds" would be in our favor...
