How To Get Pregnant With Quadruplets
If a woman is pregnant w quadruplets and looses one baby. What happens to that baby? Is the baby absorbed into body?
Yes.: As the attached image demonstrates any fetal demise with ongoing pregnancy will result in mummification of the lost fetus (papyraceous) that can sometimes be seen as part of the placenta/afterbirth.

Some women also have irregular periods or even spotting that is not actually their period, which also makes it difficult to predict. Therefore, you are right; unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy on almost any day of the cycle. ...Read more
