Posted on August 21, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

There are some questions that parents of multiples Hate to be asked:  Here are some:

Did you have them ‘naturally?’

How many times did you have to do ‘it’ to get triplets?

Are they identical?

Do you like/love one better than the other(s)?

One Mom who was bottle feeding her projectile vomiting son so she could better make sure he kept down enough milk, was asked “How did you decide that you loved your twin daughter more than your twin son {cause everyone knows breast milk is healthier}?

Why don’t their names rhyme?

Why aren’t they dressed alike?

Which one is better behaved?

Better you than me!!

Which one is the good (bad) twin?

It isn’t unusual for folks, even strangers, to want to know if your babies were ‘natural’ or did you have help conceiving them, even when it is none of their business.  Firstly, I prefer ‘spontaneous’ over ‘natural.’   ‘Natural’ makes it feel that if infertility assistance was used, those babies are ‘unnatural.’  Some multiples are spontaneously conceived and some are conceived with some type of infertility assistance and how they were conceived is no one’s business other than the parents, who may or may not wish to share that background information.  Indicating that you would rather not discuss the topic to the stranger in the mall who asked, is your right.  Doesn’t have to be rude, angry or aggressive, just a “that is a subject we prefer not to discuss,” is perfectly acceptable.
