A serious WTF moment

My coworker just informed me that her stepsons are 7 months apart in age and that her husband's ex-wife got pregnant with the second while she was still pregnant with the first. So, basically, once she gave birth, she was still pregnant. I'm thinking isn't it more likely one of them was early? How is that physically possible.

 

Re: A serious WTF moment

  • I'm pretty sure that's not possible, but I'm no expert.  I would think since the uterus is closed with the baking baby, sperm can't get anywhere near an egg.  I would think #2 was just early.

  • I don't believe that for one freaking second.  The second kid was early.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Your cervix closes so how could you get pregnant. It was way too early for that random comment.

     

  • According to Grey's Anatomy this is possible. You have to have a uterus for each baby though.

    If the older one was a girl I would assume they did the dirty while pregnant and the fetus got pregnant and carried the other baby [this is the kind of logic that hangs out on the first tri board].

    I was just going to say this was a Greys Anatomy episode! Not sure how likely it is that it happens in real life though.

  • Quoting jfresh.

    Yeah as long as there are two uteruses. My cousin has two so it is possible.

  • There are news stories about this kind of thing...extremely rare, but possible with two uteruses.

     One of the stories is here.

    Oh yeah, hadn't thought of that.  Anybody I know of that's had that type of duplication has had the second removed.

    Can't say I blame them. Talk about 2 under 2. How about 2 under 1. I never thought of the 2 uteruses thing. I can see that.

     

  • Yup 2 uteruses. A girl I went to college with had this. She actually just had a baby. They pretty much told her no unprotected sex during pregnancy. Super rare though.

  • Feel free to tell me I'm an idiot...but those of you that know about the two uterus thing, do they have two periods?

    Uh yeah! I can't imagine...either bleeding or ovulating all the time. Horrible. Unless they synced up, which would be cool but if you're already screwed by having two utes you know won't get lucky with same time cycles.

  • I have heard (probably somewhere ridiculously unreliable) that you can get pregnant while pregnant in the first like 6 weeks, but that's rare and because your body hasn't quite caught on to not ovulate yet. So you would have 2 babies, 6 weeks apart. But they're born at the same time for safety sake or something, so they're kind of twins. 

    BUT if you're a super whore you could have twins by different fathers... DUN DUN DUN!
