EGGS



It turns out that even though it is EXTREMELY rare it is possible. The condition is called SUPERFETATION & It occurs when a women ovulates more than one egg, but the eggs are released at different times, sometimes up to 24 days apart. It is ONLY possible in women who have 2 wombs or continue their menstrual cycle while pregnant (hormonal abnormalities). Those that continue their menstrual cycle don't have the hormone signals to create the mucus plug as normal, so sperm can still manage to get through. As I said above the condition is EXTREMELY rare.

Wow how crazy!!! Long story short it looks like I released two eggs during ovulation. Yayyyy Clomid twins!!!

that is so awesome! I would love to have twins. I'm not sure if I could but I might start Clomid in August if I'm not PG this cycle or next. Wish me luck and congratulations on your twins! Have a happy 9 months!
