  • There was a lady in town who had twins that were discovered in early u/s to be 4 wks apart. She ovulated again after being pregnant. She did have a bi-cornate uterus.

    As for two twins 4 days apart... (I'm assuming the person is not very far along and this has been confirmed via u/s) then it could really go both ways. Sperm can live inside the female for 5 days. So if the sperm reached the top of the fallopian tube and one egg was released and 4 days later another egg was released, it would be pushing it time wise for how long they surive but it could be the same batch of sperm. But on the other hand, another batch of sperm could have arrived by then too. Anytime you have 2 eggs being released and have had sex with multiple men within 4-5 days prior to ovulation, you could have 2 different bio dads.

  • How do you know they are four days apart? I would think with that small of a difference the doctor couldn't tell, but then again, I'm not a doctor, so I'm curious what you were told.

  • Well if they just told you that @ 22wks then it might actually mean that the girl for some reason is having growth issues making her growth slow and she will need to be watched closely. They would have needed to tell you at 6-7wk range using a very high quality u/s equipment for true age purposes.

  • How could you have twins four days apart? I'm confused. Was one somehow delivered early and the other one stayed in the womb?
