Twins Born 12 Days Apart Make Medical History

This mother had her first child at 26 weeks...and her second twelve days later.

It's the age old question: which twin is older, and by how many minutes? For these twins, their answer will be 12 days

According to the Daily Mail, mother Vicky Green had her son, Presley, when she was just 26 weeks pregnant. Her labor stopped, keeping Presley's sister, Paisley, in the womb for another two weeks. 

Presley was born 1 pound 8 ounces, and Paisley weighed in at 2 pounds 8 ounces at birth via cesarian. 

Doctors decided to send Green home after giving birth to her son (with another baby still inside her) because they determined the second twin was not in distress. 

Five months later, Green says the babies are "doing incredibly well and they are gaining weight each day."
