Is it possible that my monochorionic diamniotic twins could be a boy and a girl?

Is it possible that my monochorionic diamniotic twins could be a boy and a girl?

I have  monochorionic diamniotic preganancy. Usually at which week chances for delivery?. My doctor asked to me to take complete bed rest.

Unsure: The average gestational age for twin deliveries is 36 weeks. Your pregnancy should be monitored more closely because of the twins and especially due to the shared chorion.

Does monochorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy mean that my babies are identical?

Does monochorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy mean that my babies are identical?
