In 1978, a 24-year-old pregnant woman from the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh reportedly received the terrible news that she was suffering an ectopic pregnancy, in which the fetus grows outside the womb. The pregnancy did not go to term, just as doctors predicted, and the woman was told to have surgery to remove the fetus.

It reminds me of another story where someone had a twin inside them that their body absorbed. The doctors removed a hairy tumor with teeth, serious. Now I have to find it.
I'm sorry if anyone is just having breakfast.

Her name is Lydia Fairchild and she's a chimera. Her ovaries and the eggs contained are composed of tissue of a twin she'd absorbed in the womb.

THE FOUR YEAR 'PREGNANCY' CURSE
Two women, one from Domboshava, Mashonaland East and the other from Highfield in Harare, are tied by some inexplicable twist of fate and nature. The duo, Maidei Nemhara (40) and Portia Tapfumanei (35) have had their stomachs swollen for the past four years, making them appear like they are heavily pregnant. The babies have not come and the condition of the two women has spawned stories of witchcraft and other conspiracy theories.
Nemhara lives in Mutake village in Domboshava. She is living a hellish life following the inexplicable swelling of her stomach, a condition that has left her looking like she is heavily pregnant. Those who claim to know culture say they suspect witchcraft as the cause of the swelling. They claim that a male relative who wanted to become intimate with her could have used juju to fix her. Nemhara, who has four children with her husband Richard Mutake Mhosva (51), said she first sensed something was wrong when she first suspected that she was pregnant.
