I know, I know… HUH? Here’s the deal:
Expectant mama Julia Grovenburg didn’t use fertility drugs because she didn’t want multiples, but has learned — SURPRISE! — she’s carrying two babies anyway. Not twins, but rather two babies that apparently were conceived weeks apart.
That is, as those in the medical profession would say, some crazy shit.
The 31-year-old woman went for an ultrasound to check on her 11-week-old fetus and was stunned to find out she had two. Doctors believe it’s a rare case of superfetation — defined as, “Holy crap, I’m gonna have to change a lot of diapers.”
“We feel very blessed, but the truth is that I gagged. I started getting sick, that’s not a joke,” Mama Julia said about the moment she found out she was pregnant — again. “My ultrasound [technician] Susan was in total, utter shock. My husband was laughing.”
Of course he was. Look at his face — proud of his super-persistent swimmers, he is.
The Fort Smith, Ark., woman said she and proud babydaddy Todd, 38, were floored by what they saw.
Next to the baby girl, Jillian, there was a smaller fetus, a baby boy they’ve named Hudson, with a younger gestational age.
“We tried for three years to have kids, and nothing ever happened,” Grovenburg said. “We even refused to do in-vitro or fertility drugs because we didn’t want multiples. I guess God is having the last laugh.”
He could probably use one after learning “The Beautiful Life” was canceled. He must be devastated by the news!
Mama Julia said it’s feasible there were two conception times because she didn’t realize she was pregnant with Jillian for a while and continued to try to conceive. However, because she didn’t have an amniocentesis, doctors can’t rule out the possibility of twins for sure until the babies are born.
Jillian’s due date is Dec. 24 and Hudson’s is Jan. 10, but they will probably be delivered at the same time in early December.
“It’s funny because in a way Jillian is getting robbed,” Mama Julia said. “The way she was conceived, she sits up higher, so Hudson probably will be delivered first. She’s legitimately older, but he’ll be the big brother.”
Jillian may feel that way… UNTIL Hudson turns 30. Then she’ll be all, “Ha, ha. YOU’RE old, sucka!”
