View pictures in App save up to 80% data. In extremely rare cases, a woman can get pregnant while already pregnant. Normally, a pregnant woman's ovaries temporarily stop releasing eggs. But in a rare phenomenon called superfetation, another egg is released, gets fertilized with sperm, and attaches to the wall of the uterus, resulting in two babies.

 It concluded that a phenomenon known as superfetation had occurred. Superfetation is the onset of a subsequent pregnancy during an ongoing pregnancy; a new pregnancy during an initial pregnancy.

Imagine a woman who just found out she is pregnant. She just took the test, it came out positive, she is ecstatic and runs to tell her spouse. Right away they start planning for the future. Names, little outfits, nursery design, the whole nine yards.

She then goes to her first OBGYN appointment where she gets to see her baby for the first time, only there isn’t just one baby, no, there are two. She is having twins! How cool is that?

Closer examination by the doctor reveals that one of the twins is smaller than the other. The newly pregnant mommy learns that one of the babies is smaller than the other because they were created at different times in the past few months. Not only did she get pregnant once, but twice in the past month/month and a half.

That’s right. She got pregnant a second time while already pregnant. It is rare, but it can happen.
