Yes, fertility technology was used....

Gawd... I would *not* want 9 children (they had a single child before they got pregnant with the first quadruplet set) under 2 1/2... and in another article they mention wanting to have 12(?) children.... I don't know if it was before or after they got pregnant with the second set of quadruplets... thats too many kids, all very young... glad she has her mother to help her! (her mother retired as a nurse to help out)

That does sound a tad excessive these days, but what the hey, so long as the kids are loved and cared for.

Makes up for all of us with zero or just one child... and helps the government with their target of raising the worker numbers to compensate for all us retiring oldies. :D

My aunt and uncle have ten kids - but eight of them are twins, and they are spread out - about four years in between each set.  I know I could never have coped with that many kids.

LOL

I read a book several years back when quads and just plain multiples were still unusual...at least compared to today. It was authored by the mother of quints about their experiences.  She did say it was easier to potty train multiples tho I'm not sure if others would agree. :D


If that's what they want I say more power to them...not sure I could handle the situation myself but if that's what comes your way....I supposed you figure out how to do it...

Are they certain that it was actually a human woman, and not a bunny?  Because if it's a bunny, that's normal.

In an overpopulated world, I don't know why humans need to start having litters...

^ there is some truth to that.

and i'd like to know who's going to support nine kids all in diapers unless the father is rich.  it's going to be the McCaughey (sp?) case all over again where people are going to have to donate to support them.

The article says they live with his or her parents.

Maybe they are trying to have their own gender-mixed baseball team.

Wow, and I thought having three kids under five was tough.  When do they sleep?  Feeding four babies every three or hours 24 hours a day... yikes!  You'd need to stagger the feedings, plus time to heat bottles and change nappies.  You'd be lucky to get two hours of sleep at a time.  And most children under two years old occasionally wake during the night too.

Can you imagine dealing with colic and teething?  Or a cold that keeps waking them up?   :o

^ each birth only 15 mths apart? 1 yrs and 3 mths? Pregnancies were only about 6 mths apart.
That means she gave birth to the last group when the first group was only 60 mths old, which means the oldest group was about 5 yrs old when the youngest were born... and this is through *natural* conception?!   :eek2:

12 kids by the time the oldest is 5.... If it is natural, do you guys have twins running it the family?
I've also heard of some women with a 'condition', if it can be called that, where they always release 2 eggs at a time.

I would have told them to Frell off! :D When you told me only one girl, I though torture! Through the younger years torture would probably have come from fighting/teasing/harrasing... from the older years over-protectiveness (and teasing, but maybe more goodnatured... maybe not... maybe sometimes). Where those two at her prom the one(s) born with her? Didn't they have their own gawd damn dates? :D
