A literary review on multiple pregnancies shows a study done on one set each of septuplets and octuplets, two sets of sextuplets, 8 sets of quintuplets, 17 sets of quadruplets, and 228 sets of triplets.

There were nights at the dinner table where we turned on the TV to unwind while enjoying dinner (Food Network shows can’t be bad for the kids, right?).
