Fuschia Gaskin is a woman who has discovered she is pregnant with conjoined twin girls who can never be separated because they are inseparably fused at the heart and liver.
According to Metro UK, the woman is just weeks off giving birth.
Fuschia Gaskin and husband Quincy, both 26, are set to welcome little Lailani and Iyana into the world later this month. The mom-of-one discovered she was pregnant with the girls last November at Dr Stanley Santiago’s ultrasound clinic in Key West, Florida.
Admin worker Fuschia and naval operations specialist Quincy have since moved to Clemanton, New Jersey.
Fuschia, who is already mom to an adorable one year-old boy called Quamari, will give birth to her 200,000-to-one babies at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia next month.
The woman opened up in an interview, saying:
‘I found out at 20 weeks, and right now I’m 31 weeks. ‘We were just going in like a regular ultrasound visit. We were excited, then the scan was continuing, then they said: “There are two babies and not just one. We thought “Even better”. They kept doing the scan and said they are conjoined, and we instantly thought that’s scary. The doctors were surprised. ‘It’s exciting, its nerve wracking, it’s scary, you just don’t know what to expect really.’
The obviously disturbed than requested for additional scan to know the vital organs the girls share:
Fuschia Gaskin continued:
‘They share their heart and liver. Everything else is separate. They each have two arms and two legs. ‘But as of right now, they are not separable.’
Fuschia Gaskin added:
‘They said (the pregnancy) is nothing that either of us did. ‘We found out we both had twins on both sides of our family. We didn’t find that out until we were having twins.They said it’s a one in 200,000 thing. We just got lucky and drew that straw.’
