A woman has said that she's expecting triplets after conceiving a third child while she was already being pregnant with twins. She is documenting her incredible journey of double pregnancy, an extremely rare phenomenon known as superfetation. "The first two babies are 10 and 11 days older than our third baby, so that’s how we knew straight away it was a second pregnancy," said mom-to-be.

Superfetation occurs when another egg is fertilised by sperm and implanted in the womb days or weeks after the first one. This results in the second pregnancy. "To confirm it was superfetation and not just twin absorption or a malnourished baby, the doctors have been doing ultrasounds every two weeks," she said.

She and her fiance conceived their babies naturally, without any fertility drugs. "I just happen to hyperovulate and ovulate twice in a month, so that is how I got pregnant already after getting pregnant with twins. Pregnancy hormones are supposed to stop you from ovulating. Mine did not," she explained.

The expectant mother is 17 weeks pregnant and is due mid-spring. She said that the plan is to get the babies to the 28-week mark, but she hopes that she is able to carry them for 32 weeks or longer.
