So the duration of pregnancy depends upon as long as it can go without complications.
The mother and babies are closely monitored for any infection, bleeding or clotting issues. Also there are more chances of eclampsia and hypertension in multiple pregnancies. If there are no complications, and usually with prophylactic antibiotics,bed rest,and
Monitoring, the pregnancy can continue as long as your doctor thinks its safe for both mom and baby.

The fact that one of the triplet died and came out and the other two triplet are still in her Tommy can the pregnancy continue
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
How long can she take prophylactic antibiotics
Yes because the other two have intact membranes and they are doing good.They are not in any distress,and there is no infection.
Antibiotics can continue for longer periods of time as its important to prevent infection.
Your doctor can best decide depending on the circumstances...but its important as the pregnancy is still very early and they don't want her to go in early labor.
