    :whoa Okay - so I guess this happened like within days (at the most)!

    So, since they obviously were not 'paternal' twins.... she must have ovulated two eggs... then had sex with both men within close proximity....and both eggs got fertilized.

    WOW... talk about being a "fertile Myrtle'!!

    No kidding about the fertile Myrtle part. I mean I know it's possible for cats and dogs to have several different fathers for the kittens/puppies, so I suppose theoretically it is possible for the same thing to happen to humans, but, jeez...I never thought something like this would actually happen. Human females normally ovulate only one egg unless they're taking fertility drugs.

    Googled and found this from American Pregnacy Association:

    Can a woman ovulate more than once during each cycle?

    A woman cannot ovulate more than once during each cycle, therefore she cannot get pregnant more than once during a cycle. Multiple ovulation can occur and is when two or more eggs are released in a single cycle. Both eggs are released during one 24 hour period and are responsible for the birth of fraternal twins. It is believed that this may occur in as many as 5-10% of all cycles but does not result in that many twins due to a type of miscarriage referred to as the “vanishing twin phenomenon.”

    And, from Wikepedia:
    Fraternal twins
    Fraternal twins (commonly known as "non-identical twins") usually occur when two fertilized eggs are implanted in the uterine wall at the same time. The two eggs form two zygotes, and these twins are therefore also known as dizygotic as well as "biovular" twins. When two eggs are independently fertilized by two different sperm cells, fraternal twins result.

    Oh, A-1 - you are so BAAAAD!

    PARENTS make mistakes - - but the subsequent children are NEVER mistakes.....just "surprises" (that usually turn out to be the greatest blessings! :p )
