A baby that is part of such a set is called a quintuplet and sometimes referred to as a “quint.” Though quintuplets and other higher-order multiple births (also known as super twins) are rare, the increased use of fertility drugs and assisted reproduction techniques has also brought an increase in these special types of pregnancies. Here’s all you need to know about quintuplets. Most likely, quintuplet birth take place by cesarean or C-section delivery and each child has a birth weight of 2 pounds and 12 ounces on an average. The quintuplets will be admitted to the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) for appropriate medical care until they reach their actual expected birth date.

A multiple birth is the culmination of one multiple pregnancy, wherein the mother delivers two or more offspring. A term most applicable to vertebrate species, multiple births occur in most kinds of mammals, with varying frequencies. Such births are often named according to the number of offspring, as in twins and triplets. In non-humans, the whole group may also.

Multiples higher than two are much less common: The same year brought only 3,755 triplet births, 217 quadruplet births, and 31 quintuplet and higher-order births. Older moms may be partially. Expectant mums carrying multiple babies can expect more monitoring throughout the pregnancy, although the level on monitoring will vary depending on whether the babies share a placenta or have one.

Medically reviewed by Joel Forman, MD What Are My Odds and Chances of Having Twins? Fact checked by Adah Chung Unique and Practical Double Cribs for Twins.

Although you would assume that quintuplets would share the same birth date, this is not always the case. Sometimes, if there is a problem with one baby, the doctor may opt for a delayed interval delivery or iatrogenic asynchronous birth. Multiple birth, the delivery of more than one offspring in a single birth event.

In most mammals the litter size is fairly constant and is roughly correlated with, among other features, body size, gestation period, life span, type of uterus, and number of teats.

  • So how is the twin gene created? Fantastic the mother inherited the trait but from the maternal line maybe? This video doesn’t do anything for me, honestly. And it isn’t the only.

  • It’s hideous that anyone would accuse them of wasting resources. They chose to have a second child and they were given 7. Even with fertility treatments, 7 is highly unusual. They went through the pregnancy knowing that some of not all could die during birth. The fact that they are all alive is a miracle. I feel bad for parents that want so badly to conceive and then are faced with multiple pregnancies that are extremely high risk. I would be an emotional wreck during the entire pregnancy if it were me.

  • Why they talking about someone taking up all the resources because they have a big family, you cant say seven kids is a lot, have any of you even seen the documentary of the family with 20 children?!

  • I have a fratenal twin we dont look the same we dont even look like broathers not the same height or weght, hair color eye color blood tipe etc

  • How is it that all of us in one family have had only singles and one person only would have twins and going back years their are no twin birth. Is that something that is normal we are waiting for another set of twin the set we have is 71. So no one has had any since or before them. How is that possible

  • bro for white people it’s so astonishing and rare but for Mexicans having a lot of kids/a huge family is normal. I mean look at our tios and primos

  • 14 weeks pregnant with fraternal twins, I’m shocked and kind of nervous because I really want it to be a healthy pregnancy and I want to make sure my babies are healthy… it’s my first pregnancy as well!

  • Having sex every day even during ovulation will not necessarily increase your chances of getting pregnant. I have been married for 6years now and nothing happen, I tried every way but all to no avail. Nothing that can make you feel more alone or stressed out than trying to conceive, though TTC can feel exhausting, frustrating and lonely. I want to thank God and also doctor Eddymon for putting a smile in my face, I conceive last years after I took the medication dr. Eddymon sent to me. The dr gave my assurance I am going to get pregnant within a month and it happened just the way he said it and now I have a baby of my own. I pray for everyone here looking for fruit of the womb, the same God that did mine will also do yours. In case you have the same problem and want to reach him on WhatsApp +2348128107710 or e-mail [email protected] feel free to add me up for more information Whatsapp me on +16143339063

  • My mum is a fraternal twin with my uncle. Does anyone know if there’s a higher chance that I’ll have twins? Or am I no more likely than anyone else?

  • My mom have 3 Triplets girls in ’91s’ we are all identical. LaTeshia, LaKesha and myself. But LaKesha was a stillborn in die in ’91’. LaTeshia and myself are still live. We been 29 this year.

  • My Missus is pregnant with an identical twin B/G, we had to carry out several test to confirm this.. The Doc says its the first time he is seeing this? How is this possible?

  • i was pregnant with identical twins but had a missed miscarriage at 16wks5days. I am trying again to see if i can get the twins again that was my third miscarriage

  • So does it mean that in the case of monozygotic twins the number of chromosomes in zygote are doubled and then divide and then they grow independently ��…

  • Currently expecting fraternal twin boys! One has been hidden and finally showed himself last week at my 16 week checkup/ultrasound

  • Okay so me and my boyfriend are the type of couple that sets a future for us and we want 4 kids in the future XD. How should we get ready and is there any way to get quadruplets?

  • 13 weeks fraternal Twin boy’s, I was told 4/21/20. I shouldn’t be shocked the dad is a fraternal twin and his twin is a man. This is so weird.

  • I cant believe di/di does not automatically mean fraternal… theres still a 30% chance of them being identical separate sacs and placentas shouldn’t determine this. Eggs can split earlier on, this is what people that THINK their fraternal twins their whole lives find out they are infact IDENTICAL. Now there is a panorama testing that can tell you if your twins are Identical twins or not, even if Di/Di.

  • so is it common for a twin ( my mom is a twin) to have twins? i’m wondering because me a and my sister are twins and i’ve been told that it skip a generation is that true?

  • I hate these intros �� nothing personal but a “oh hello” signifying you didnt know “we” were here or the camara is recording.. great video though so much information can you do a video on how identical identical twins are, identical twins are an fascinating the same body diffrent mind how could there opinions be so diffrent from each other

  • I’m a fraternal twin �� Girl (myself) and boy (my brother). I think this is a wonderful thing, so much different than having a bigger or littler sibling.
