Twins are endlessly interesting because they’re the only kinds of siblings that have shared everything since conception: the same womb, the same genes (if they’re identical), the same birthday. They’re intrinsically connected because they’ve always been together.
But what if two babies share the womb at the same time… and aren’t twins at all? Sounds impossible, doesn’t it? This was the case for one Australian mom, who was able to conceive—while she was already pregnant.
At first, she had no idea. But during a routine ultrasound, Kate Hill and her husband, Peter, were taken aback to find out that they were having two completely separate babies in one pregnancy–something that has only happened about 10 times in the entire world, according to their doctor.
How lucky for these parents, who originally thought they’d never be able to conceive at all! It must’ve been scary not knowing what was going on, but thankfully Kate’s doctor was able to figure it out.
