I am a mother of five with #6 on the way. My last pregnancy was a set of delightfully healthy and wonderful triplets. (They were completely spontaneous--meaning no fertility drugs of methods were used--for those who I know will ask) They are 22 months old now and I am expecting again.Ultrasound has confirmed another singleton. My early pregnancy symptoms are exacerbated beyond belief--the exhaustion and sickness are terrible. It is possible that it is actually harder to be pregnant with one when you are CARING for triplets you already have than to be carrying triplets! I had a wonderfully healthy triplet pregnancy with no complications other than the extreme discomfort. I carried to 34+ weeks and was never put on bed rest. I would like to hear from anyone who has been through a singleton pregnancy following a super twin birth. (Super twins are three or more also known as higher order multiples) I would be so thankful for words of encouragement, advice or the sharing of your story if you would be so kind.

My GGB triplets are 16months and will be 2yrs when their sibling arrives! I have not had my scan yet, so I am still hoping for just one baby! I have been feeling incredibly sick and exhausted as well,after a pretty easy triplet pregnancy(33wks), so i think caring for our triplets might have something to do with our exhaustion! If you can do 5+ then i think i can do 3+.......here's hoping for 'morning' sickness ending soon!
Cheers!

A friend of mine recently gave birth to a singleton after a set of triplets. The triplets turned 2 in October, so it's very similar. She said the single pregnancy was much more difficult overall, and she had things happen that she never did with the triplets that simply shocked her! But the outcome was excellent!
