Do identical twin boys arrive earlier than other babies

Hi, this is my third pregnancy, currently 23+ weeks with identical boys. Ive heard that identical boys tend to come fairly early. Whats the range for twins to be born? just so Im prepared for there arrival. My first girl I was induced a week over and 2nd girl was c section 2 weeks early, both due to very large size

Answer: Hi, There is no evidence to suggest that identical twin boys are born earlier than any other twin birth. Twins do tend to be born earlier as two babies do take up more room so run out of room earlier. Best wishes, Alex.
