If you do fertility treatments to become a parent, your chances of conceiving multiples are pretty high. Although you are secretly envious of the Octomom and Michelle Duggar from 190 Kids & Counting, you are not looking forward to those future questions “Hey, do twins run in your family?” and “Why don’t your quadruplets look anything alike?” You will (one day) be a very proud mom-to-be and you will probably always have to explain that “No, stranger at the grocery store, twins don’t run in our family” or “It is funny, Aunt Gertrude, what are the odds we would get pregnant with six babies naturally. You’re right, we must be very fertile“

    LOLOLOL!!! I just saw this video last night on youtube (Mompetition is GENIUS!!!). The mom of twins here has the wittiest comebacks–”what brand of tampon do YOU use?”. I really am into these videos, although I am waiting for the day when the other mom will b$*%ch slap Beth upside the head. Thanks for getting my Tuesday started! you rock!

    Laugh my a$$ off! I’ve got almost all of those comments. I especially like it when people ask if my boy and girl are identical (my two boys are). When I tell them “no”, they usually respond that they don’t believe me and they think they are. Intelligence at it’s finest.

    Luckily I’m adopted so that helped me “explain away” my triplets. Who do I think I’m kidding, everyone knows…

  6. says:

    So funny! I worry about this all the time – if a treatment actually ever works. I’m going to have to remember some of those awesome comebacks!

    this one and the last post…HILARIOUS!!!

  8. Lex says:

    I hope I get twins… one can always hope as I’m doing IUI in 2011. But that conversation would get old quick!

    “Great job, here’s your cookie,” LMAO! Love it!

    Hello, I love your blog, it is funny. I am not infertile, I am very fertile but here is my rub and perhaps you can help me help someone who is infertile. You see I came here from my SIL’s site and she is infertile. I have gotten pregnant 3 times while on birthcontrol. (I am not trying to brag) The last time was after my SIL’s first miscarriage, i believe she hasn’t told me a whole lot, anyways I want to be there for her in any way I can and I know it doesn’t help her to have me popping up pregnant all the time when she is struggling SO MUCH. The honest truth is I often wish I could give her some of my fertility (as if it were something to be bottled and shared!) but I cannot. My husband and I are planning on having another next fall and I don’t want to hurt her (I pray constantly that she will be pregnant and possibly delivered of a healthy baby by then). I don’t know how to help her or talk to her and I am very worried that I will inadvertantly be the one to say something stupid to hurt her. I think that she secretely resents me for my children and I would not blame her one iota. Do you have any suggestions for me? Should I just keep my mouth shut? When I get pregnant again how do I tell her that will be the least painful to her?? Thanks!

  11. says:

    @rain I would honestly tells her exactly what you just told us. Its always nice to hear that fertiles aren’t ignorant asses. I know I personally would really appreciate it if some of my fertiles told me that they support me and want to be there for me.

    This video cracks me up. Next time my fertile cousin in law talks about how she gets pregnant so easy I am going to tell her “good job here is your cookie.” Maybe she will get the hint.

    So funny, definitely will have to remember should I be so lucky to have multiples.

    rain – my SIL too has had 4 babies with ease while I have struggled with infertility, a miscarriage and a failed IVF. I do not resent her though because she is very aware of my situation and is sensitive. She doesn’t make stupid comments or remarks that some friends have made that drive me nuts like how it’s so hard and not fair they can’t drink while pregnant etc. You just need to think about things you say and if you think it might offend, don’t say it, it’s not hard to upset an infertile.
    Good luck.

    This blog always mirrors my life. Finally pregnant, twins on the way, $$,$$$ later and I’ve already gotten some of those comments and questions. The babies are not even here yet! What a great video!!!

    @rain: Ditto Jaz and Kayley’s advice. You sound like a sensitive person. In general, if your words reflect your love for her and not unsolicited advice, the vibe she’ll get will be clear, even through the pain.

  14. says:

    @rain….I wish more fertiles were like you. Good Lord we’d have insurance coverage for IVF or any treatments. My advice is to not change your frame of mind and don’t act smug. There are so many people who have a smug attitude. Don’t tell her “I know how you feel.” Cause, simply you don’t. However, you seem like your not someone who would say those things. Just ask her what she doesn’t want said.

    OMFG….that is the most hilarious thing I’ve ever seen. A friend of mine with triplets made a comment to me about her children being a freak show…not actually the kids, but the freaks who come up to her randomly asking her about them and how they were conceived….she throws out questions like, “what position did you and your husband use?” It’s no one’s business how my children are conceived and well, if I have triplets, quads or whatever…I’ll just say I had a lot of sex…

  16. Sammie says:

    What is your favorite brand of tampon? LMFAO! CLASSIC!!! I need to use these lines when ppl get too personal and keep asking me questions as to why I do not have kids yet after 7 yrs of marriage! The best is when ppl tell me what am I waiting for? or hurry up already, or when do you plan on having them. I always respond with, wow, didn’t know you were in such a hurry to buy me my nursery, thanks for the offer :)
    They usually leave it alone after that lol

  17. jdfan14 says:

    too funny sammie, i get frustrated too when people ask ‘when are you guys going to have a baby’ i will have to remember these lines too so i can use them next time i am asked. usually just gripe w/ DH later and we agree ppl can be so rude.

    Hi Everyone,
    I thought to post this latest video from Mompetition here in the comments section. It was just created last week. I am totally becoming addicted to Mompetition and I don’t know about you but I really can’t wait until the day that Beth (the blond mom) gets b*^$h slapped!
    Thanks sooooo much to Naomi and Mompetition for making my day a little brighter! You take the words out of my mouth and you guys rock!!!

    “Which one is your favourite?”
    “The one that isn’t screaming”

    Theres this book for infertiles, and reveals the ‘truth’ about multiples from ART, and how much babies suffer and how women weren’t meant to be carrying multiples. Everyone I know who is haivng troubles with IF rave about this book, but I don’t know. I mean, I woud worry for the health of the babies if I had like five, but whats wrong with twins? That book even warns about the health of twins.. Anyway, rambling….these cartoon shorts are hilarious! Love them!!!!

    “Which one is smartest”
    “I am!”
