Woman gives birth twice in 8 months

This lady has my total respect and sympathy. It's hard enough to carry ONE pregnancy in a nine month period, that she had two pregnancies makes me melt with pity for her.

Claire Ormrod of Wales was pregnant with Alice, when she had an emergency caesarean section at just 25 weeks on December 6, 2011. Alice weighed 1 pound, 3 ounces, and doctors didn’t think she would survive.

But, Alice did survive, and seven weeks later – despite being on the birth control pill, Ormrod became pregnant again.

In September 2012, son Gareth was born early also, at 29 weeks. He weighed 2 pounds.

“I was absolutely petrified when I found out I was pregnant again,” Ormrod told the Telegraph. “My (doctor) said I should have a termination; he said it would end up killing me and the baby, and that it wouldn’t be fair to put me through it. But I said, no, straight out."
