MULTIPLES

Julie at A Little Pregnant has a good post up about the octuplets lady. She says it all.

What I'd like to tangentially say relates to multiples. Two years ago, I would've freaked out to get pregnant with twins. I thought fertility drugs were scary and that people who risked having four to six babies were insane.

But a lot has happened inside my head in two years.

Now I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed for twins or triplets. I don't want to go through any of this ever again. I now understand the desperation people feel when they opt for riskier options. I will be thrilled if I have twins. I would prefer it to one baby.

Again, this is tangential to the octuplets lady. She is nuts.

1 You are anything but nuts. That's why I was looking forward to what you had to say about Suleman. But yeah, Julie - and her readers - already said it all. Thanks for the links! I've never been turned off by the idea of multiple births. It's the context of this particular instance that disturbs me. She's sui generis, and in a pretty bad way. I don't want anyone to think you are anything like her. Crossing my fingers for multiples. The world needs more people like you.

2 BTDT. Two years and all this stuff does a LOT to a person. And I, too, became comfortable with multiples. In fact, after my first, even remotely successful cycle on fertility drugs, my dr. flat out cancelled due to 5 mature follicles with the statement, I don't do litters. We can not and will not let this happen. At the time, that made me insane, I mean really this was the only positive progress I'd had in years. In retrospect, this is why people are so heavily monitored. It's a PITA, but really, somewhat necessary. And AMEN, thanks for all the ruining all the progress made in public perception of fertility treatments.

3 Hi, I'm Susie. I'm a French student in Pitzer and I have to write about a true event that happened in my college like Capote did in In Cold Blood. (it's for a writing class) I've chosen the case of Kerry Dunn and I've seen you posted messages about her. Did you know her before? Did you attend some of her classes? Can you speak a bit about you as a student in the College when it happened? Thanks in advance for your answers.

4 Sarah - Thinking of you. As a side note, one of my best friends has a really interesting birth story - in fact, it was just published in a book. It was an interesting read for me, who was there for her thru it all, however to read it thru her eyes.
