Ok all you non fertility impaired people I want to share some news with you. It may be something you did not know but I am just going to put this out there so I only have to say it one more time and I know many people who do not go through this every day really have no idea about what happens during fertility treatments except the junk (mostly) portrayed in the media.
I will not have 8 babies at once just because I am going through fertility treatments. So the statement "haha that is going to be you" is totally false! How do I know this you may ask? Because I go to a RESPONSIBLE RE. My RE would NEVER allow this to happen. See if you are going to a RESPONSIBLE RE he/she would either a) cancel the cycle b) if it is for IVF, not transfer that many embryos. First of all this lady did use fertility treatment I am 99.999999999999% positive of that. If she conceived them naturally then she needs to be studied some how some way because she is an anomaly. Also, oct.uplet lady either had a bad RE or she was not following the doctors advice such as going home and doing the deed after finding out said cycle was canceled or better yet she is not even seeing a doctor and got the meds herself and shot herself up un-monitored. If you need any more evidence then take a look at the latest news which states she is a single mom and may already have six children. What dr would do that? I am not saying someone can't have 14 children if they choose but having 8 at once can cause ENORMOUS complications and cost ENORMOUS amounts of money.
If there is a dr that did this then I think he/she needs to have their license taken away. This is a rare occurrence hence the reason it is such big news. This is also one of the reasons IVF has a stigma attached to it and it is unfortunate and should not be this way.

Ok there...I got that off my chest, now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
