Woman gets pregnant while already pregnant

Happens to guys all the time.

[www.washingtonpost.com]

Rebecca Roberts and her partner struggled with infertility for more than a year, so when they got a positive result with an at-home pregnancy test, they were overjoyed.

But the news didn’t feel real until the first ultrasound appointment, when the couple saw their baby on a sonogram screen and listened to the calming cadence of a steady heartbeat.

On Roberts’s medical chart, her obstetrician wrote: singleton.

“I remember walking away from the very first scan so happy,” said Roberts, 39, who lives in Wiltshire, England.

But her excitement abruptly shifted to shock five weeks later at the 12-week ultrasound appointment, when the sonographer spotted something astonishing: It appeared as though Roberts was suddenly carrying two babies — one of which was considerably less-developed than the other. The room fell silent.

“I thought something awful had happened,” Roberts said. “The sonographer looked at me and was like, ‘do you know you’re expecting twins?’ ”

But this wasn’t a typical set of twins, Roberts learned. Her pregnancy was diagnosed as superfetation, a rare condition in which a woman who is already pregnant conceives another baby.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

For those who haven't read the story, the mother gave birth to both twins at 33 weeks, the older weighing 4 lbs, 10 oz, the younger weighing 2 lbs, 7 oz. Older brother Noah stayed in the NICU for about three weeks, but younger sister Rosalie was in the hospital for three months. They are now a little over six months old, and quite adorable:

A scary and unprecedented beginning, but a good outcome.

I did not know this was possible. Wife and I enjoyed all natural, biblically approved relations during her pregnancy!
