In order for you to really understand the odds of being 1 in 88,000, here are some interesting statistics –
The odds of finding a pearl in an oyster is 1 in 12,000.
And, the odds getting a hole in one is 1 in 12,500.
Here’s a family in Kansas who gained attention when they became pregnant with twins.
You may be wondering why this mere fact made to the news.
Well, it turns out that this was her third time of being pregnant with twins.
This happens about 1 in every 88,000 cases.
And it all happened just within two years.
26 months ago, Danesha and her fiancé, Jeffrey, gave birth to their first set of twins. Unfortunately, even though Danarius survived, his twin brother named Desmond died shortly after birth from a placental abruption.
Even though losing their child was painful, the couple was more than overjoyed when the second set of twins, Delilah and Davina, was born just 14 months later.
When the doctor told Danesha that she was pregnant again, she wasn’t surprised. What surprised her was the fact that she was pregnant with twins. Again.
And the amazing thing is that she did not go through any fertility treatments for any of her pregnancies.
In the interview with the Daily Mail, Danesha says that because this happened naturally, she “realizes that some people might consider her as a ‘freak of nature.'”
Apparently, though, her odds of being pregnant with twins may be greater than the others because she apparently has a specific condition that allows this to happen.
According to Dr. Elizabeth Wickstrom at Shawnee Mission Medical Center, Danesha has “two eggs simultaneously coming down the tubes getting ready to be fertilized.”
This makes more sense since all of her twins are fraternal, which means that they are from two separate eggs being fertilized.
When asked how she felt about being pregnant for the third time with twins, she says that she’s fine with it because she loves babies.
Her only regret, though, is that all the pregnancies were timed so closely together.
In fact, in an interview with the Inside Edition, Danesha said that she’s so busy all the time.
“I’m always picking something up, picking food up, or changing a diaper,” said Danesha. In fact, this family goes through thirty-six diapers a day!
