One woman shared her unbelievable story of getting pregnant twice in one week, but what’s unbelievable for the Australian is that she had been told she would never be able to have children due to being diagnosed with P.C.O.S when she was 15.
Her name is Kimberley Tripp and she is currently 35 years old, although she feared that she would never be able to start a family, now she is the mother of not only one, but two babies, who are also a week apart.
These two details are not the most incredible in her story, since Kimberly became pregnant through I.V.F treatment, so she was surprised to discover that she had ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ another naturally.
The young woman originally from the city of Brisbane in Australia, had the support of her husband Adrian of 35 years for her I.V.F, when she managed to get pregnant in July 2019, they could not believe that they were expecting twins.
“We couldn’t believe it. I never knew something like this was possible. We were so happy to have twins. I was afraid I would never have a baby, let alone two,” said Kimberley, who is now a mother to Leo and Patrick, who are 15 months old.
The couple explained that when they saw their first ultrasound at six weeks they discovered that they would have twins and their reaction was to be sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ since they had only transferred one ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏ so they did not understand how it happened.
“But my doctor explained to me that one of the twins was ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ naturally and the other was done through I.V.F”, this phenomenon is called sᴜᴘᴇʀꜰᴇᴛᴀᴛɪᴏɴ, which is when a second and new pregnancy occurs during an initial pregnancy.
Although babies are considered twins because they are born on the same day, they are usually of different sizes and this was reflected in their weights when they arrived in the world, while one weighed 2 kilos 700 grams, the other weighed 1 kilo 900 grams.
Kimberley shares her incredible story to give hope to others struggling with ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ.
“Patrick was born first and is the older twin. He is cheeky, mischievous, very determined and bossy. Leo is the smaller twin. He is so loving and giggly and always smiling, and he is the joker of the two. I never expected this to happen to us and for a long time I thought I could never become a mom. But miracles happen, and now I feel like my world is complete. We are so happy”.
