Two babies are born on the same day and have the same mother, but are not twins.

Same day, but different years?

Or they could be two in a set of triplets, or quadruplets, quintuplets, etc.?

No, and you don't have to go any further in your tuplets...they aren't any of those!

Are the babies human? or are they a species that normally reproduces several times a day?
They have the same biological mother? is a surrogate mother involved? adoption? cloning?
Is time travel involved?
Do they also have the same father?
Were they born in the same general area?

Did the babies come from the womb of the same woman? Did they have the same father?

Well done both of you, although I didn't realise it would be this much of a quickie:P


************** SPOILER ******************
I read somewhere the other day that once a couple who have had fertility problems stop trying - once the pressure's off - they ocassionally conceive naturally against all the odds. It made me consider a situation where they had her eggs fertilised by his sperm but implanted successfully into a surrogate. Once they realise it has been successful, they are obviously overjoyed and relieved. If nature performed its magic and they then got pregnant naturally it wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility for their baby to be born a month or so early, possibly on exactly the same day as its brother or sister! Which of course made me think of the classic LP


Or does that just sound like an Eastenders plot?

The frustration of Johnny Carruther
Must stem from this fact, and no other:
There just wasn't room
To return to the womb,
Occupied as it was by his brother.
