Its kinda interesting to see how a body can contain that many babies. They should def monitor things like this. human body shouldnt carry litters like mice or cats or other smaller animals. i certainly dont see larger animals carry litters like dolphins or elephants.

My mom had triplets when I was six years old and although I can say that my brothers and sister are wonderful and i love them, it really does put a strain on a family especially when the family isn't wealthy. I feel for the other siblings because its hard enough to share parents with a few brothers and sister but for me, three at once was totally shocking and hard...i cant imagine what these other children must feel like..neglect I'm sure.
