    I was born with two uteruses - two cervics - two vaginas - and one kidney.

    I was told that it would be possible to get pregnant in both at separate times. Say for instance a month apart....sheesh! Now that I am wiser to the ways of the world - I am so glad every thing turned out the way it did. I was never able to conceive but I have done OK except for a kidney problem occasionally. It lays across the lower middle of my back and there are times when my back aches so bad I have to lay down. Other than that I do fine.

    Wow Gidgette! That is amazing. I guess if your tubes connect to the wombs an egg could, in theory, be fetilized? It is mind boggling to think about.

    I suppose there has been babies born from different wombs before but not identical twins and a single. I wonder if the womans single child was a boy or girl. Also, I wonder if women who have multible births from one womb can have triplets with 2 being identical and one not. I guess it would be possible. I have never heard of it happening.
    It would be very confusing to explain how your twin sisters are also your twin but they are identical.

    to the babies!

    There was a story similar to this one in Ina May Gaskin's Spiritual Midwifery. The woman had had babies from both uteruses (uteri?) but not both at once as I recall... Before that, I'd never heard of anything like it.

    I think this actually can happen with multiple births..

    Like 2 eggs are fertilized and then one splits creating identicals.

    I have the book "The Twelfth Of Never", about the Betty Broderick story (excellent book). It was written by Bella Stumbo.

    In it I read Betty was born with two vaginas and uteruses also. Doctors "eliminated" one of the vaginas but left the rest intact. She ended up giving birth 5 times, all by c- section. One of the 5 died shortly after birth.

    She became pregnant very easily and was pregnant 9 times in the first ten years of their marriage before she finally got her tubes tied. Besides the 5 births, she had 3 miscarriages and one abortion.

    This subject reminded me of that about her.

    Montana16 - THAT is exactly the reason I am so glad I was never able to get pregnant...now!!! :crazy: At the time it was pretty devastating but in later years we adopted two children.

    My situation is my "extras" were all internal and nothing known until they decided to do a hysterectomy when I was 29 y/o. The proposed 1-1/2 hour surgery turned into a 4 hour surgery and had my DH in a panic. Back then I was told that it was a rare occasion and the doc would write an article...but without the conveniences of the Internet I have no idea if he ever did or not.

    As my husband also had his medical problems - I guess we were just meant to be together. Yesterday we celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary. So don't feel bad for me...j/k :woohoo:

    Thanks also for the book information. I am going to see if I can find it.
