A Decision I Don't Think I Can Make.

I am about to get married and one of the main things I pray for, for this marriage, is that we do not experience any problems conceiving children naturally.  I don't know if we'll ever be in a position to afford such an expensive procedure as in-vitro, but let's say we do, and we get it done.  If they implant six embryos and they ALL take, What would we do??  Most of the time those procedures are just like throwing several thousand dollars out the window, because they fail to implant.  But out of the successful cases, I've never heard of someone only becoming pregnant with just one baby.  We want children, I want more than he does, but NOT AT ONCE!  Babies are so hard.  For me the worst part is waking up in the middle of the night because I love sleep.  But I can't imagine what more than one would be like.  I don't wanna ever find out.  I have no reason to suspect that we would have problems making a baby the normal way.  I just know that it can happen to anyone, and knowing my luck, because I've longed to be a mother my whole life, something will go wrong.  I just don't know if I can go through the whole expensive process of in-vitro and be let down, or have it actually work (after we've cleared our savings doing so) and have an ultrasound show six (give or take a couple) tiny circles.  Even twins I don't think I could handle.  I don't judge people who have it done responsibly (not like the new octuplets' mother) but as for me, I'm on the fence.

Yeah I know, thats one of the reasons why I don't wanna go through that. I've seen alot of specials on discovery health and stuff that show people having more than three babies at once and it's sad. The poor things sit in the hospital for months. I think in the end I would just prefer to adopt.

in vitro fetilization is fine for people who really want it but you should stick to two or three. because premature babies die and beleive me I know. my little one weighed only a pound. if people saw the suffering these little one go threw, they would adopt
