What is 9 Twins Called?

Have you ever heard of nonuplets? It may sound like a made-up word, but it’s actually a term used to describe a set of nine twins. Leigh Raviv, WHNP-BC, a women’s health nurse practitioner serving women in New York City, explains that nonuplets are extremely rare.

The term nonuplets is derived from the Latin word “nonus,” which means “nine.” This term is used to describe a set of nine twins, which is a very rare occurrence. It is estimated that only one in every 500 million births result in nonuplets.

The chances of a successful pregnancy with nonuplets is even more rare. In fact, there have only been a handful of cases of nonuplets that have survived. The first recorded case of nonuplets was in 1971, when a woman in Australia gave birth to nine healthy babies.

To put it into perspective, the chances of having nonuplets is much lower than the chances of having sextuplets, which is one in 4.7 million. The chances of having septuplets is even lower, at one in 60 million. The chances of having octuplets is one in 70 million, and the chances of having nonuplets is one in 500 million.

In addition to nonuplets, there are other terms used to describe multiple births. For example, sextuplets are six babies, septuplets are seven babies, and octuplets are eight babies. Here is a simple chart of multiple birth terms:

Number of Babies Term Used

6 Sextuplets

7 Septuplets

8 Octuplets

9 Nonuplets

Nonuplets are extremely rare, and the chances of having nine babies at once is very slim. However, it is possible, and there have been a few cases of successful nonuplet pregnancies in the past. If you’re pregnant with multiple babies, it’s important to talk to your doctor about the risks and potential complications.
