I had the same thought, but bear in mind also that the birth of the living twins is rare, while the pregnancy itself is less so.  Either of the babby's umbilical cords can develop problems, or cause a direct problem such as strangulation, which leads to death.

You'd think since there's two, it would be termed "stereo".

"Thistlethwaite entered the hospital in March. She was hooked up to monitors for 20 hours a day during the weeks leading up to her C-section."

That sounds incredibly expensive. I think it cost $25K when I was in the hospital for 3 days a few years ago.

It all depends on your insurance.  What people don't get about health insurance (and what I hope to promote) is helping explain to people what their deductible is, what their out of pocket max is, how co-pays work, etc.

My daughter was critically ill at birth and had two surgeries before she was 7 days old and stayed in an ICU for three weeks, along with the actual cost of the birth  But we knew going in what our deductible was and what the out of pocket max was. We had that money saved and we reviewed each bill and what the hospital charged us.  As soon as we hit that out of pocket max, we knew to start fighting bills and charges.  Some people don't get that and just pay (or think they have to pay) every bill the hospital sends.

Sometimes they like dressing the same, it's all about letting them decide as they get older.  There's nothing wrong with dressing lil ones up the same.   Everyone has an opinion on how to better raise kids that aren't theirs.  I don't get it.

supershaft: Does that mean she farked two guys and got double knocked up because she's a cheating whore?


No, that would be the opposite end of the twins spectrum - fraternal twins from different fathers.

Basically you have:

(1) singleton birth (one fertilized embryo, doesn't divide, has its own sac)

(2) conjoined twins (embryo starts dividing very late like after day 13, doesn't fully divide, obviously one sac)

(3) mono-mono twins (embryo fully divides, but one sac - dangerous because cords can tangle)

(4) identical twins but two sacs

(5) fraternal twins (meaning, two sperm), obviously two sacs, usually the two sperm are from the same guy

(6) fraternal twins, two sperm from different people.

In the case of cats sometimes there will be two litters at once - cat got preggers, kittens start, then while preggers has sex again and another litter of younger kittens starts, usually the second litter is killed when the first is born since they come out too early.

Anyone know if that's ever happened in humans?  Mom getting pregnant again while an earlier kid is already somewhat along?  Normally hormones should make that not possible but maybe VERY rarely? (It's probably pretty damn rare in cats too, it's just that they have SO MANY pregnancies...)

I'm pretty sure it has happened with women who have duplicated uteru, uteri?  Uterus didelphys:

That's just awesome how there's a picture of the babies holding hands as they were taken out. They probably have av close relationship already, or were arm wrestling in utero.

I have a common first and last name. Both with uncommon spellings.

It really is a pain in the ass.

Being born holding hands, they should be mano a mano.

Amirite?

It was cesarean, so the doc probably noticed they were before separating them.

I did exactly this with a kid I was helping at church. Spelled his name wrong on his take-home papers because I used the spelling that everyone has seen hundreds of times. Silly me.

Oh for Fark's sake.  Yeah, it had nothing to do with the hospital, the skill of the medical team, the advancements of SCIENCE, which religiotards have sought to thwart at every turn...  Nope, it's a MIRACLE!  Praise Jesus!
