8 is enough...or is it too much?

Did you hear about this family that had 8 babies by cesarean section yesterday? Holy Freakin Crap! And she held them in until 31 weeks!! That's insane! I thought it was crazy enough when the McCaugheys had 7 (or was that the Dillys??). I thought it was insane that Jon & Kate Gosselin had 6 (and twins) that had NO medical issues. This is crazy. I would like TLC to follow up on this lady. I want to know how she kept them cooking for so long.

Amazement aside, I hope that all 8 of those babies are healthy and don't have any long term negative affects from being such high order multiples or from being in the NICU for so long.

I dread hearing all the bad comments about these people. I've see it about other parents of multiples and parents who have numerous children (the Duggars) - being called breeders, saying people weren't meant to have litters, and, my absolute favorite, "vaginas aren't clown cars." Ugh. People are so ignorant sometimes.

Hey I just wanted to thank you for your support over on my blog. It means a lot to me that people I dont even know can come out and speak on a subject that is clear discrimination. I really appreciate it!

My jaw hit the floor when I heard this story on GMA the other day! And they didn't even know there was an 8th baby in there...could you imagine the shock? Oh well, what's one more baby when you already have 7!!

I really hope those new parents have a serious support system to help them...they are SOOOO gonna need it!

I think they are blessed! I would love to have 8 kids! However, mine come one at a time via c-section, I don't see myself going through 8 c-sections.
