What a joy it is to be able to rejoice with a couple who recognize the irreplaceable value of their unborn child.
Washington state couple Krista and C.J. Schwab are expecting a baby boy in August, a child who they thought never would be possible.
The Daily Mail reports at a young age, doctors told Krista Schwab that she had two sets of reproductive organs, a rare condition called uterus didelphys, and would never be able to carry a child. She has two uteruses, two cervixes and two vaginas, according to the report.
The 32-year-old said she and her husband tried for 10 years to conceive a child. After losing two babies in miscarriages because of her condition, the couple said they almost gave up hope.
“For so many years, my husband and I cried, prayed and dreamed of having a child,” Krista told the Mail. “We both had so many breakdowns because we wanted one so much.”
In December, Krista said she noticed that she had gained weight, and decided to take a pregnancy test.

“I normally pray and hope whilst I wait, but this time I lost all hope and didn’t bother,” she remembered. “Then I saw it – it was positive. I hit the floor crying. It was a massive shock, especially for my husband!”
Here’s more from the report:
… Krista’s pregnancy is even more miraculous as she is expecting in the womb that did not release an egg.
She said: ‘The only ovary that was functioning was on that right side with that very shallow opening, there was no connection for the left to get an egg through it.
‘It’s incredible because doctors still don’t understand it. The fact that I’m pregnant on the left side and it’s impossible for the egg to get there.’
The Schwab’s miracle baby, a boy, is due in August.
Krista said she hopes her family’s story will encourage other women with similar conditions to keep hoping.
“Ten years of trying to have a baby it just happened,” she said. “I want women with uterine didelphys to never let anyone tell them miracles can’t happen because they do.”
