  • I don't know what percent, but as a triplet, you carry a high probability of carrying multiples.

  • If you are fratenal and your parents didn't use fertility treatments then your chances are definitely higher than most people's. I don't know the statistical probabilty, but you can probably do a little research and find it.

    If you are all 3 identical or if your parent's used fertility treatments to conceive, then your odds should be the same as anyone else. Identicals are not caused by genetics.

  • yes, b/c you are a triplet. I wanted twins when I found out I was pregnant. My family has 3 sets of twins and 2 sets of triplets. It all depends on the mother though. How many eggs you drop. That's what the doctor told me.

  • It's definitely a higher chance you will conceive multiples, but I'm not sure exactly what the percent is.
