UTAH – Giving birth to two children is certainly difficult enough. Having them a week apart is a different story!
Angie Cromar is a very special woman. She’s a nurse from Utah and she’s expecting to give birth in about five months. And then again in a week. She was blessed with the unique characteristic of having a double uterus – also known as uterus didelphys.
Cromar, 34, is already the mother of two and discovered at her first ultrasound exam that the two fetuses she’s carrying are at slightly different stages of development, according to AOL.com.
“The doctor said I’m five weeks and four days in one, and six weeks and one day in the other,” Cromar told KTLA, her local television station.
“Angie and I both had a look of surprise,” her doctor, Dr. Steve Terry, said.
Uterine abnormalities may occur in up to 4% of women, who have uneventful pregnancies.  Only about 5% of them have a double uterus, however, according to the Mayo Clinic. Sometimes, the rare condition of a double uterus may never be diagnosed. But women who have the condition are more likely to miscarry or deliver a baby prematurely, according to the Mayo Clinic.
The chances of getting pregnant with two babies, one in each uterus, is about one in five million.
“Probably less than 100, so far worldwide have been reported,” Terry told AOL.com. “So she’s a member of a small, elite club.”
