I don't have a link to the story. I saw it on our news and read the article in our paper today.
A woman was pregnant with triplets. For some reason (they didn't disclose for privacy purposes), one of them was born (not even by c-section but natural way) at 25 weeks and the doctors were successful in stopping the other two from coming out.
So now the woman is taking care of the preemie and is still pregnant with twins. In this case, are they still called triplets?
Anyone heard a familiar case? Supposedly, this is becoming more common especially for pregnancies due to fertility treatments/methods.
