Falls Pregnant While Already Pregnant

Doctors have been stunned by a woman with a rare medical marvel - falling pregnant while pregnant. Julia Grovenburg and her husband Todd were shocked to learn she would be giving birth to two babies, but not twins.

The couple attended an ultrasound appointment believing Mrs Grovenburg was just over eight weeks pregnant.

But the scan showed two babies, separated by two-and-a-half weeks - with one clearly more developed than the other.

"[When] she said, 'and baby number two has got a healthy little heartbeat,' - I just started gagging," Mrs Grovenburg told broadcaster KFSM-TV in Arkansas.

"[We were] both in shock," her husband added.
