I have a patient in Australia who just found out she is having triplets today - 3 heartbeats on the scan. There are a few ladies having triplets at the moment and although there are horror stories there are many that do fabulously well. I personally know of a 51 year old Japanese lady who delivered triplets and she was tiny with no problems. I also know of a Malay lady who had triplets a few weeks ago at 35 weeks - again no problems. I think the main thing is that you get things ready early - I would say by around 24 weeks and after that try and rest as much as possible. Please venture onto the pink board and ask questions. You will be amazed how supportive people are.
