Last week, the Australian media reported the fertility story of a pregnant woman, which caused heated discussions.
The 24 -year -old woman named Madeline Kaklikos Madrine Carriks gave birth to a pair of twin sons in February this year.
Um?It’s not unusual to have twins, right?In fact, this pair of twins born of Madeleine is not the twin in the traditional sense.
Generally speaking, the twins refer to giving birth to different ovarian twins or heterolar twins during the same pregnancy.
But Madeleine’s two babies, one, was artificially conceived, and the other was pregnant naturally, and the two embryos were bred in bed in her two uterus until they were born.Her doctor said that this probability was one -50 million.

Madeleine told reporters: "I had a lot of baggage. In addition, I was worried about the rare situation of the twin uterus, and I was a bit desperate." At the doctor’s advice, Madelein and her husband decided to try artificially.Artificially cultivated embryo into one of the uterus in itself.
Due to the polycystic ovary syndrome+twin uterine malformations, Madeleine’s pregnancy preparation is extremely difficult.From 2021, she started to promote ovulation, egg retripping, artificial insemination, and implanting embryos to wait for bed.

She told reporters that by the eighth round, she had no confidence at all, and began to accept the fact that she could not get pregnant for a lifetime.When the ninth round failed, she and her husband had collapsed very much.
Who would have thought that in June 2022, after finishing the tenth round of artificial conception, the doctor called Madelein, congratulations to her embryo in the embryo in one of the uterus successfully, and Madeleine successfully became pregnant.
"I, my husband, my parents and brother, the family shouted excitedly and cried, hugging into a ball."
She went to the pregnancy test and heard the child’s heartbeat for the first time, waiting for the child’s birth.Who knows that during the tenth week of pregnancy, Dr. B ultrasound suddenly quietly calmed down, and Madeleine recalled: "I was panicked at the time, and I was afraid of what was happening."
As a result, Madeleine’s husband, who was with, was keen, and he heard more than one heartbeat and asked the doctor what was happening.
Unexpectedly, the uterus on the other side of Madrine also had an embryo that was successful and smaller, and had a heartbeat.The uterus on both sides of her was pregnant with the baby: "I was stunned, my husband’s face was scared, and I thought the doctor was joking."
It turned out that when the tenth round of artificial conception, the mentality of Madeleine and her husband had collapsed. Although the doctor reminded not to live a husband and wife, they broke the jar and thought, "You can’t be casual anyway."So the previous week had just finished artificial conception, and the two were in the same room in the second week.
Before this, the inadvertent move of ancestors and naturally conceived, and finally let the two babies get two babies.Madeleine’s twins, pregnant twins, still use two methods of conception and in different time periods. According to the doctor, the probability of this situation is one in 50 million.
However, because of the complexity of the Madrine Pharaoh’s pregnancy, she was not smooth sailing during pregnancy. Several doctors suggested that she insurance a little more and reduce one child.But Madrine eventually chose to keep the two dolls, and it took 34 weeks to make a caesarean section.
On February 20, 2023, Madeleine gave birth to the next unusual twins.
Because it was a premature infant, the two brothers lived for 17 days when they were born.At present, the two babies, which are 3 months old, are good.
Madeleine said: "When I was discharged from the hospital for the first time, I was holding them, my heart was going out of my chest. It turned out that this was the feeling of being a mother."
Both Madrine and her husband said that they would raise this pair of "miracles" and grew up, and they will tell the brothers in the future that they are one -10th of the special babies of 50 million.
It is indeed rare that the twin uterus like Madrine is pregnant. At present, there are only more than 100 cases recorded in the world.
Some women who are pregnant, even one of them, and one reproduce in a few days.
For example, in 2004, the Maricia Tescu twin twins in Romania were born on December 11th, and the second baby was born in February 2005, that is, 59 days later.
