One Woman, 2 Wombs, 2 Babies, Not Twins!

This lucky lady not only has 2 uteruses, but she is also pregnant with 2 babies at the same time.  But they are not twins!

At her first ultrasound, one baby was about 5 weeks along, and the other one 6 weeks.  She'll be having a double birth next year.  Read the article here.

I wonder since she has 2 uteruses, does she have 4 ovaries?  Does that mean she ovulates twice a month?  That sure doubles her chances of getting pregnant each month, right?

Can I just be half as lucky as her?

  7. What a strange story! Thanks for sharing this! And to think that I would really just like to have a single functioning uterus. :)

  8. Wow, I got to say, this may be the first pregnant lady I'm not jealous of. Maybe. Two uteruses seems like very high maintenance.

    And you're in the 2ww? Best to you.

    Happy ICLW!

  9. What's weird about this is you'd think her hormone levels after ovulation/implantation on ute#1 would have impeded ovulation/implantation on ute#2. Figures. I'd just like one functioning ute/ovary.

    Best wishes on your cycle!
