I luurrrrrve to lurk!
That is so crazy. That happened to a girl we know who lives near us. The babies were 6 weeks gestationally apart, but one of them didn't make it. I guess that's typically what happens - one of them ends up reabsorbing or miscarrying.
That's the strangest thing... but I've heard of that happening as well! I wonder how though, medically? Doesn't the uterus close and form a barrier (the mucus plug) when we get pregnant as to not allow things like this from happening? I wonder, did hers just not close??

I'm not so impressed. It happens all the time with twins that one is quite larger than another, even at that stage.
Hormones are funny things sometimes. I would definitely classify this as twins not just siblings that were born at the same time.
Maybe if she were like 20 weeks along then got pregnant again that would be crazy. But one fetus that looks only a few weeks farther ahead seems like it probably happens a lot more often than we realize.

I've seen a few articles like this before as well.
The body is an amazing thing and does such weird stuff on its own!
If it were me I'd call them twins - it's basically the same as fraternal twins but instead of having 2 eggs fertilized at the same time there is a time difference.
