Two year old boy gives birth





nickfyoung
A two year old boy was discovered to have his twin growing inside his stomach. He was getting so big he was causing the two year old problems so had to be removed. His twin was removed dead but how come he was still growing. He must have been alive if he was still growing.

There was another case that a baby girl gave birth to her twin.

that's a pretty crazy situation right there. giving birth to your twin. i wonder if it was a natural birth or if it was a c-section. probably was a c-section. not that it really matters, it's still crazy. that would simply be crazy to be able to say that and absolutely mean it. "yeah i gave birth to my twin" that'd be nuts.

The last paragraph in the article mentions something about conjoined twins so both bodies was probably grown together. The brain of the inner brother may be non-functional but the cells in his body was probably alive and growing and got what's needed from the living brother.

Giving birth is not from stomach, but from the uterus / womb. I think it's just a normal operation surgery to remove unwanted things inside the body.

Great evidence of the existence of flaws in nature. Nothing is perfect in life, including life itself.

True. They probably use the words "give birth" and "pregnant" to make it sound more interesting than it really is. They explicitly said it had developed a spine, fingers and toes so I guess there wasn't much more than that.

I believe the condition is called a Chimera

or vanishing twin

Says it like it is. Wonder what the psychological effect of it would be on the surviving twin?

may be it wasn't a boy, it was a girl, who lied about her age, in that case everything is natural Confused

That's kinda crazy ! One of the most strange things I have ever heard of !

Yep some weird stuff occurs during development. One of my favorite museums is the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia. http://www.collegeofphysicians.org/mutter-museum/

It's a massive collection of human oddities, diseases, genetic mishaps, and mutations that only the most horrible minds could even imagine.

I had nightmares after visiting, and will never forget some of the preserved babies and the horrible grotesque possibilities that sometimes occur.
