    A multiple pregnancy simply means you are carrying more than one baby. This most often is twins although with so many couples now seeking help with fertility it can mean triplets or even quadruplets or more. Anytime there is more than one baby in the uterus the pregnancy can be more complicated and high risk as multiples often come early.

    A pregnancy with multiple is when the woman is carrying more than one fetus. Today with advancements in infertility treatment multiple gestation pregnancies are occuring with increased frequency.
