Reading this makes me sure.

Well, the odds of multiple births increase with age...

I think you may have slammed shut and bolted the door on that for Becca. Big Grin

Yep my friend was in her early 40s.

Scared the living shit out of me.

It's not exactly rare that I agree with you Chas, and this is no exception No

Hense each has their own birthdate.

Science is cool.

Word. I have no desire for children either.

So, a dual ovulation/fertilisation, with subsequent monozygotic twins? IIRC dizygotic triplets are actually fairly common so far as triplets are concerned. The circa-midnight birth is just coincidence, but separate deliveries is pretty odd. Maybe separate fertilisation events? Were fertility treatments involved? Not to pry, but, now I'm just curious. The vast majority of cases of 3+ multiple births are, in the modern world.

The story goes they were conceived naturally. At first they really thought just twins, then triplets later via ultrasound. Doctors realized pretty quick the girls were identical and the boy was a fraternal. The boy child's water broke and they couldn't completely stop the contractions. After he was born, the contractions did stop and they were able to put off delivery until the twins had more time.

Since she went close enough to term and the babies were good size and position they decided to let her deliver them. The crossing midnight was a total coincidence, serendipity.

I could commiserate with her somewhat because my second son was born at 30 weeks, but my water had broken at 27 weeks.

I didn't realize that could happen but it makes sense. Learned something new today.
Thanks.

The doctors referred to the triplets as a litter. Laughat

I was due September 27 and he was born August 13. My water broke the last week of July. I know this because we had just finished moving into a new house.

What was really scary was he weighed 5lbs 9oz and the NICU doctors placed him at 29 weeks. Undecided

But they had given steroids to help his breathing, more than once because they only last for so many days or something -- in case. His biggest issue was he couldn't breathe and nurse, so he was fed with the cutest NG tube ever. He was born on Friday (the 13th) and was released just a week later.

I don't know if his having autism is because of his premature birth.

But he's 15 and taller than me. Big Grin
