I guess that Duggar family is up against some pretty stiff competition

Poor Mrs. Duggar had to wait them out one at a time! This lady got a big jump start, so now she can overtake her in a few years!

I'm pleased to see the family chose to stay away from the limelight and maintain their privacy. I wish them all the best, raising octuplets plus six other kids including twins. This, even though I think if you want more than six kids, you should consider adoption.

Some people don't want other peoples' kids. I wonder what the story behind this is, are all the children of the same father, or is she giving many different men children? If she lives with her parents, I doubt it's a Duggar situation. In a way she's foolish to avoid the limelight, it could make a lot of money in endorsements and TV shows as others in similiar situations have done.

But then she would be accused of treating her kids like the Dionne quintuplets.

No father.
Six kids already.
Lives with mother.
Total of 14 kids....14.

Ridiculous.

The article I read said that her father is going back to Iraq in order to earn money to support the babies. He says they have a "huge" house.

Supposedly she didn't know she could end up with multiples, let alone eight. I don't understand that, when you have any sort of fertility treatments I would think that would be made clear by a doctor.

I've read that, too. It's That is so macabre. In the article it said he has worked in Iraq before to support the family and now that there are eight more to feed he will go back to support the family.

I don't think anyone cares anymore. The Duggars have a show and so do some other family, what is it, somebody +6? Besides they aren't giving the kids up to live in what was essentially a zoo atmosphere like the Dionnes did.

I still can't understand why someone with six children wanted or needed fertility treatments?

Is this her father, or the babies' father who's going to Iraq? If he gets killed everyone will feel sorry for them and donate even more. Or if they get desperate for cash they could sell a couple of them to Angelina Jolie!

It's her father, or the children's grandfather. Since it's an artificial insemination there is no known father.
I guess when he comes back from Iraq this time he dreads the day she opens to him, "Dad, I'm pregnant again."

God, I hope so. There has been concern for the kids on that show in the past few months.

Something isn't right here. This doctor should not be practicing if he's implanting so many eggs that 8 turn out viable. The female human body isn't designed to carry this many children. He's using these people for personal gain. i.e. a book or maybe they are in it together.
I just hope the children will be okay. They don't deserve all the possible complications that are sure to be apparent because of being born too early.
This is just sad,

It's hard not to be judgemental about this, because obviously we don't have all the facts, just that:

- she has 6 young kids already
- she lives at home (why? Choice, or necessity?)
- the father apparently isn't in the picture (sounds like it's her dad that's a contractor in Iraq, not the father of her children)

But I'm failing at not being judgemental right now. It's hard to write this because I am all for reproductive rights in other arguments, but this just seems irresponsible - on both the mother's and the doctor's parts.

Again, obviously we don't know all the facts, but why is she having eggs implanted when she already has six kids? It would appear she might not be able to solely provide for the 6 kids she already has! Big families are great, if that's what you want. But FOURTEEN?

I realize that she wasn't planning to have 8 more, but why are you having anything implanted when you are a) single; b) living at your parents'; and c) already have six other children?

Right now I'm seeing why she's choosing to remain out of the public - I would bet she knows just how badly she'd be ripped apart in the media, or even by people who see her.

It just boggles the mind. I'll be happy to eat my words if more is revealed later, and things aren't as they seem right now.
