TwinGo || Woman Conceives Triplets with Different Conception Times in Rare Double Pregnancy

September 29, 2020

There Can Be Miracles When You Believe!

Doctors told Dee Michelle and Antonio Livingston that they would need to get medical help to conceive because of infertility struggles. Well never say never because that news could not be further from the truth! In the summer of 2020, they defied the odds and conceived not just one baby, but three! The shocked couple is now expecting triplets in a rare double pregnancy... one fraternal baby and days younger identical twins. Baby C was conceived six days before her/his younger twin siblings Baby A and Baby B! Talk about rare pregnancies

The Science Behind the Unexpected Triplet Pregnancy

Is this real? Yep! It's called superfetation, an instance in which a second, new pregnancy can occur during an initial pregnancy. How rare is this phenomenon? There are only about ten cases of superfetation that are documented in medical literature. These triplet babies' story will make it 11!

For this to happen successfully, three very unlikely events need to take place:

  1. The mother must be ovulating during an ongoing pregnancy. 
  2. The second ovum must be fertilized by a sperm cell. 
  3. The fertilized egg must implant in an already pregnant womb. 

Hoping for Healthy Triplet Babies

Dee & Antonio are optimistic for a healthy outcome! “We are believing that all three of our babies will be healthy, equal in size, and have no complications," soon-to-be mother of triplets Dee wrote on Instagram. "They made it safely through the first trimester without any complications, so we believe that the second and third trimesters will be the same! Please continue to pray for us and our babies as we have a long journey ahead of us!”
