12 BABIES!!! REALLY???

I am absolutely appauled by this!!! I came across these stories and my head wants to explode! This is exactly why fertility treatments have such a bad rep. For people such a this that went to Dr who obviously are not abiding by the moral code of practising. This is not a good situation for a single one of those babies who so is fighting to make it just a day longer...

PEOPLE! THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT IS TO BE TAKEN LIGHTLY!!!!!!!!

It is a life! I do not agree with this one bit. If she was on injectibles, so be it. However, she should have been monitored very closely and not triggered had she had over X amount of eggs! My current Dr will not trigger if more than five are over 15mm! Even if each and every one of those fertilized and they split to make five sets of identical twins, that's still less than 12! ARGH!!!!

Read for yourself...

I really think people are in it not for the celebrity status. I mean, if Octomom is going to have a reality TV show to portray her finding love, heck, why wouldn't someone want to follow in those footsteps, or heck, try to out do them! This just absolutely disguests me!!!!

yeah, this story was ridiculous.

My RE won't let me trigger if i have more than 2 or 3 mature follies b/c i won't do selective reduction

It makes me sick... My RE wont trigger more than 3 follicles and wont implant more than 2-4 for couples doing IVF (and she said she has only done 4 because the embryos were not expected to do well but she the family wanted to try.) We had this talk after the whole Octomom thing because my RE was ticked. She considers it irresponsible medicine and I think she is absolutely right!!!

I can't believe that Octomom is going to have a show. Well I can believe it but it's wrong.
