  • I saw that too...My question is will they both be born on the same day? Seems like if she went into labor with one they would both have to be born, or would they? It kindly shocked me, I had never heard of this before. I know it said hers is only 2 1/2 weeks apart. Is it possible for this to happen farther apart?

  • i didn't think it was possible. Unless two eggs had already dropped and the 2nd just fertalized a bit later. So they would still be techncially paternial twins. My guess is if they had sex just a few days later, then this wouldn't have been able to happen. Weird how it all works.

    As for delivery, it's not possible for them to both be in the same sac, so one could be born then a few weeks later the next could be. It's happened before, but is rare.

  • Yes, its rare but I can bet you we'll of a sudden see a jump in questions here in the "TTC" & "pregnancy " section w/ women swearing they have the same issue!

  • I think they just came out with it now because it took them so long to actually confirm that it was a second conception and not twins developing at different rates.
