To answer your first question, the only time we were really careful about pregnancy was after #1 ( which failed obvisouly) and after #2 and we did pretty good. Then after #3 and that was our longest and last break.

Regarding the heterotopic pregnancy, Long story but in short when I had my hcg levels tested because of bleeding, they were in the high thousands and although I know this is NOT always an indicator of twins, it was very ABnormal for ME. so I knew...but no doctor agreed with me that it could be twins. When I went in for emergency surgery about a week later, they had no clue I had a second pregnancy in my uterus. was nt til about 10 days later that I WENT to the ER cause of issues and AFTER they did another hcg that they thought something was up. Later that night I went in for an ultrasound where it was confirmed.

Yes this is a rare happening, and thanks to god for the blessing because it was a horrible experience to go through. BTW..this all happened while we were living in the UK.

and DD3 had no problems and was not affected by the surgery and I was under general anatesia. and very heavy pain meds
