Many people believe that women can't conceive while they are already pregnant. This is true but there is always an exception to that rule. A California mom got pregnant with a little girl and ended up pregnant with another baby.
Her name is Odalis and she wa 25 when this happened. She said that a few months after tragically suffering a miscarriage, she and her husband Antonio conceived again. She had a doctors appointment and they told her that she was pregnant with two babies, but the gag was that they were not twins.
Odalis explained that she had to go to the appointment without her husband ,due to what’s going on now and the restrictions. Since she had a previous miscarriage, she was incredibly apprehensive. She thought that they would find something wrong. She said:
"The doctor comes in and I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for anything and when she found the first baby and the heartbeat I was crying with so much happiness. And then she started going back and forth and I was wondering why -m my mind just went to the worst-case scenario because of the traumatic experience that we had. That's when she told me that she had found another baby that also had a heartbeat. I was just crying with happiness. I felt like the first baby that we had lost was in the room with me and saying it was going to be ok."
The doctors informed the mom that the babies
were actually conceived five days apart. This occurs in 0.3% of pregnancies and is considered to be very rare. It’s so rare that physicians don’t believe that it really happens.
She said that the pregnancy was so stressful , "It was pretty terrifying throughout my whole pregnancy not knowing if that was going to be the outcome again. Hoping for the best but knowing there's always a possibility that things might not go as planned."
Her official due date was set by splitting the difference of the due dates of each of the two baby girls. Lilio, who weighed 6lb, 12oz. Imelda, who weighed 7lb, 3oz both arrived well. Odalis stated, "I feel like it's some sort of miracle that I experienced this double pregnancy. Because of our first experience, it made everything during this pregnancy feel so much more special and magical. Just how easy I was able to conceive, and knowing that I had two babies, I just felt like there was so much light after such a dark place. It was the best surprise ever."
Even though the babies are not considered twins, the parents admitted that they look so much alike that they occasionally mix them up. “Antonio will have a baby for an hour and be like 'Oh Lilo' this and that and I'm like, 'You have Imelda,' and he will be like, 'What?' and I'm just there laughing because he was like, 'Oh my God for a whole hour I thought I had Lilo.'"
