If you get pregnant through fertility treatments, chances are many of you will have more than one little baby to love. And get ready for the dumb questions to continue.

Normal fertile women or “normals” get pregnant with one baby while infertiles have a higher chance of getting knocked up with twins or triplets. And you’re pretty sure the dumb questions will not end once you get pregnant. You definitely look forward to answering questions like “Do twins run in your family?” or “Are your twins identical?”

No, (nosy co-worker), sextuplets do not run in our family!                                                   No, Aunt Millie, they won’t be identical because we created our children from a test tube, a turkey baster and two separate eggs.                                                                                 No, (pregnant friend), we don’t have a history of twins in our family. But once my sister and I dressed alike – does that count?

And oneday when (NOT IF) you become pregnant, and you’re walking down the street with a stroller built for seven, you’ll be so excited to answer all of those stupid questions.

    I think in this post-octomom, post jon&kate world, people will first ask that personal question of whether or not you used fertility treatments to get pregnant… that’s what I think. (and honestly, that’s the first question to pop in my mind when I learn someone is pregnant with multiples)

    Thanks so much for the laughs. It really helps me keep my sanity to know that I’m not alone in the crazy/sane thoughts I have about this stuff.
