Annals of improbable conception.

Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's superfetation! Two babies! One uterus! Two due dates! Julia Grovenburg of Fort Smith, Ark., is pregnant with two fetuses that appear to have been conceived 2 1/2 weeks apart, KFSM-TV reported. Dr. Michel Muylaert, her obstetrician, said in a letter to KFSM that Mrs. Grovenburg "was evaluated at UAMS in Little Rock for this condition, and they have confirmed the suspicion of superfetation." The older fetus, a girl named Jillian, is due at the end of 2009. The younger fetus, a boy named Hudson, is due at the beginning of 2010. The Grovenburgs have prebooked psychiatric appointments for Hudson for 2020, when they will be completely fed up with his complaints that Jillian always gets to do everything first.
