Woman Pregnant Twice. An Italian woman is due to give birth in a hospital in Rome this week to a baby girl - before returning three months later to have triplets. If both deliveries are successful, it is thought that this will be the first such case in history.

I like how superfecundation is possible among animals, bot impossible for people. What are we, robots?

Well, she could always convert to Islam or become a Mormon.

Did she attend Dartmouth College? I hear they have a pretty intense sex-ed lecture series.

No she's Harvard-Radcliffe. Husband and lover both quite impressed by her straight As.

This story doesn't go far enough to describe the health risk to those second-in-line triplets. How are they going to avoid being born when the first child is delivered? I can't imagine the chances for triplets born three months early are very good.

What mankind needs is another religion based on an unlikely birth scenario.

I knew a brother and sister who, although they were born at the same time, were not twins...they were the products of eggs fertilized about a month apart. So one was born 2 wks early, the other was 2 wks late. Their doctor said there were several cases like that in the U.S.

Well then, doesn't that mean that it won't be the first time in history?

animoller:

This is three months later, not just two weeks, and the major diffrence is that this women is giving birth twice.

delmoi - ". . . is that this women is . . ."

should be "woman is" or "women are"

I wouldn't normally bother, but I've seen A LOT of this particular mistake made lately.

I'll bet you a beer that, despite the mother's denials, there's fertility treatment somewhere in this scenerio.
