pregnant while pregnant

I had a friend and her older sister got pregnant while she was pregnant is this common or i guess i mean how likely is it i never heard of it before her sister bc I knwo the cervix is closed so I didnt think it was possible for sperm to get in....but they are fisty buggers sometimes I guess. or was this a story???? I heard but didnt see it so her story may be nothing more then a story idk???

  • Once you are pregnant you can't get any more pregnant this is a story.

  • When you are pregnant you do NOT ovulate. You have to ovulate for the egg to be present. When an egg is fertilized and implants, your body produces hormones that stop you from ovulating again until you are through with that pregnancy. It is not possible to get pregnant "again" while you are already pregnant.

  • It has nothing to do with your cervix and everything to do with the fact you have to produce an egg to be fertilized...and if you already have a fertilized egg growing in your uterus you will not ovulate another egg.

  • It is possible to get pregnant while pregnant, it is called superfetation. Rare in humans but it does happen.

  • I'm sorry, but think about this! Have you ever known someone to be pregnant, deliver, and then deliver again a few months later when the "second" baby is fully developed? Someone sold you or your friend a line of bull!
