Woman became pregnant when she was already pregnant. Understand
A woman expecting a baby can become pregnant during this gestation that is already happening? Apparently yes, although it is something rare. The case happened in the United States and involves two different couples. Calm, we explained: Jessica Allen was a surrogate for a couple of Chinese, and during that gestation, she also became pregnant with her husband.
She, who already had two children, made the agreement as a surrogate for money and buy a home. With in vitro fertilization, she became pregnant and began to generate the baby of the couple who contracted her. However, at six weeks of pregnancy, the doctors noticed that she was carrying two fetuses and the chance of an embryonic split, that is, that they were twins, was small. However, that was the fact at the time.
It was during the cesarean section that everything was clear. "I realized that one was much lighter than the other," she told ABC News. "Obviously, they were not identical twins." With the doubt, a DNA test was done on the babies, which brought confirmation: one of the babies was from the Chinese couple and the other one from Allen with her husband.
This rare phenomenon happens when the pregnant woman continues to ovulate , which allows the body to generate another baby simultaneously. This is rare in humans, but in the animal world it is more frequent. The incident prompted Allen to take action to get custody of his baby, awarded by the courts after three months.
