What is the reason for triplet pregnancy?
Three or more babies are known as ‘higher order multiples’. This sort of multiple pregnancy can occur because a single fertilised egg splits, more than one egg is fertilised, or both things happen at the same time. Higher order multiples rarely happen naturally, and are usually the result of fertility treatments.
How can I get triplets baby?
There are several factors that increase your chances of being pregnant with more than one baby:
- Heredity. If you have a family history of multiple babies during pregnancy, it’s more likely that you will have twins or triplets.
- Previous pregnancies.
- Ovulation-stimulation medicine.
- In vitro fertilization (IVF).
How many babies make a set of triplets?
Having three babies in the same pregnancy is known as triplets and having four is known as quadruplets.
Do triplets run in families?
Contrary to popular belief, identical twins (or triplets or quadruplets) don’t actually run in families. Fraternal multiples might, if the women in a particular family share some genetic trait that makes them more likely to release two or more eggs during an ovulation cycle instead of one.
Are triplets genetic?
Higher-order multiples (triplets, quadruplets, etc.) are all a variation of identical or fraternal multiples. For example, triplets can result from one zygote (an egg fertilized by one sperm) dividing into three. This means that the triplets would be genetically identical.
What types of triplets are there?
Triplets can be either fraternal, identical, or a combination of both. The most common are strictly fraternal triplets, which come from a polyzygotic pregnancy of three eggs. Less common are triplets from a dizygotic pregnancy, where one zygote divides into two identical fetuses, and the other does not.
Can triplets be born on different days?
Obstetric complications of triplet pregnancies may make the delivery of extremely premature infants in these multiple gestations inevitable. To our knowledge, this case represents the first report of triplets delivered on three separate days, 16 days apart, using the technique of delayed interval delivery.

Can triplets sleep together?
Co-bedding means you can keep your babies with you in your room for longer. With triplets, you can place them next to each other across a cot while they’re still small enough to fit. They should be laid on their backs with their feet touching the side of the cot.
