How an abdominal tumor produced a set of fraternal Nigerian twins



For those who don’t believe in miracles, here is what would convince you.

A Twitter User who is also a doctor narrates a strange circumstance of how his cousin delivers a set of twins after all pregnancy test proofed negative.

Maxvayshia who is a graduate of the university of Benin shared the story on twitter saying the incident has made him believe miracle happens and challenged everything he knew and learnt as a medical doctor.

According to him, his cousin missed her period and thought she was pregnant but various pregnancy tests and visit to 14 different professors and consultants in different hospitals across Nigeria proofed negative. However her abdomen keeps protruding progressively like a normal pregnant woman over the period of the 9 months.

Having all symptoms and experiences of a pregnant woman but was confused due to what several obstetricians suggested that it could be an abdominal tumor which needed to be investigated.

Read the full story below.

  “So, my cousin missed her period 9        months ago but pregnancy tests read negative all along, all scans done revealed absolutely nothing, even though her abdomen was progressively enlarging and has d size of a typical 9 month gestation. 14 different Consultants and Professors.

In over 10 different hospitals between Abuja, Port Harcourt and Lagos talked to her all through 9 months and convinced her that she couldn’t be pregnant but an abdominal tumour is suspected for which she is to be investigated. She was very sure she was pregnant but the counselling of the Obstetricians got her very confused as she was experiencing all the classical symptoms of pregnancy. Repeated the scan on the 9th month, still nothing revealed. Even though she was very heavy. She became paranoid and psychiatric evaluation was suggested.

She opted out and continued wandering in her confusion, with encouragement from friends and family.
She recently suddenly went into Labour and was delivered of a set of female non-identical twins through vaginal delivery by a midwife who happened to be there at the time.

This challenges everything i know as a Doctor and makes me question everything again. If events of d present times and unbelievable miracles do not make you question things you already know and probe deeper in reflection in a bid to know more, then you should reassess yourself.”
