 20/02/2013, 09:01 AM Post #4 Posts: 353   Joined: 2-September 10 Member Amazing! Good luck to them ETAI would have thought they would have been considered quads too. Does that mean the two boy, one girl triplets I know are actually twins and a singleton? This post has been edited by CG123: 20/02/2013, 09:06 AM

I thought 4 babies = quads, 3 = triplets etc. Hope mum and the little ones are doing well.

Does that sound right? 2 babies with separate placentas would just be fraternal twins.

So, that she safely carried and birthed TWO sets of shared-placenta twins is quite amazing and lucky for them all.
