Pregnant Woman, Pregnant Again

How can it be? A pregnant woman, pregnant again? Just saw this from yahoo news that an Arkansas couple was shocked to find out that the woman named Julie Grovenburg who is already pregnant and scheduled to give birth sometime December 2009 is pregnant again with a second baby who is estimated to be given birth on January 2010. Surely, doctors and scientists are already agog with this rare phenomenon. Personally, I just wish the mother and the babies good health and easy childbirth.

Oh, by the way, the term for conceiving while still pregnant is superfetation.

What, I wonder, is the second baby supposed to do when the first decides "it's time to go"?
