  • i have not, but i had a dream that i was. i was giving birth to one of the babies, who was 9 months gestation, and i had to have him by c-section so the other baby, who was only 4 months gestation, wouldn't come out too

  • Yes,it happened to me.
    Lots can determine it from tests where certain characterisitics with twins are one thing as with this condition much does not match up from skeletal to certian body features,like what you would think of when someone says twins,how they look,laugh,talk the same and so on.

  • It is rare, almost unheard of in humans.

    If it does happen, it happens very early and the babies are usually able to be born at the time of maturity for the eldest.
