An Alabama woman who was born with two uteri is pregnant in both.
Kelsey Hatcher and her husband Caleb thought their five person family was complete until the couple found out they were pregnant again.
At her first ultrasound Kelsey found out they were welcoming two new members into their family, and it’s possible they could be born days apart.
“I said, well, there’s two of them in there. And [Caleb] said, you’re lying. I said, no, I’m not,” Kelsey told local outlet WVTM 13.
Kelsey was born with two uteri, each with its own cervix. She is aware of her condition, but never had to deal with a dual pregnancy until now.
Such pregnancies are very rare and is considered very high-risk.
“A double cervix or double uteruses way under 1%, maybe three per 1,000 women might have that. And then the probability of you having a twin in each horn is really crazy,” University of Alabama at Birmingham Dr. Richard Davis, who specializes in high-risk pregnancies, told WVTM13.
Davis explain that each uterus could start contracting at different times resulting in the babies being born hours, days or weeks apart.
The babies are both girls and are developing normally, the Hatcher’s doctor said. Kelsey’s due date is Christmas day.
