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.

Just because you can't relate to it, doesn't mean that others aren't curious or facinated by what happens.

I am so over the multiple birth posts, its not the norm, and most of the people on here arent going to do this, so lets stop with talking about it everyday. get back to the posts that we can relate to.

before anyone gets offended, of course not the babies, maybe the ribs and all the organs.
