I admit, I have always thought twins are adorable, and that parents are SO lucky to have had twins... HOWEVER!!!!! Now that I've handled Rachel, my first thought when I see twins are, WOW, THE PARENTS ARE GREAT!!! Cuz I feel that it must be tough... They still are cute, but just that, I am half dead dealing with just 1, but they have to deal with 2 (TWO!!!) at the EXACT same time!!!!!!!!! *respect*

I was reading this month's issue of Mother & Baby, when I saw an article about multiple birth, and I AM SO SO AT AWE with it, I have to blog... hahaha
Look at the image on the right, the highlighted word... NONUPLETS!! let me emphasize, NINE!!! Firstly, to have NINE feotus in you, is mind blowin!!! NINE LEH!!!!!! One itself, we are complaining, and 2, well, that I have no experience but Annie-Q, how does it feel????
The nightmare does not end there, imagine 9 babies crying at the same time!!!!! I wouldn't even imagine having 9 kids with a 1 or 2 years gap in between, what more NINE at the same time.... ISH! I don't think I can say that enough....

ANYWAY.... At the end of the article, they included some statistics and some facts!!! You WILL not believe this.... Let me type it out, just in case you think you read wrongly...

Mrs Fyodor Vassilyev from Russia is the most fertile mother to date. Between 1725 and 1765, she reportedly gave birth to 16 sets of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quads. Give the woman a medal!

WTF!? (excuse the cursing)
That will sum up to a (lets test our Maths, and Julian, summing up her number of children is more difficult than your spam protection!), (16x2) + (7x3) + (4x4) = (let me get my calculator) 69 (SIXTY NINE CHILDREN) in 40 years!! Now, I think I've said enough, I'll go fix my dropped jaw! :O
