According to SkyNews, 2 women in the UK had split birth quadruplets within 22 hours of one another. Confused? Don't be. Karen Wesolowski and Martha Padgett spent 3 years and like $70,000 trying to get pregnant. The lesbian couple tried it all and finally the IVF took... for both of them. Using Martha Padgett's eggs and donor sperm the couple decided to double their odds by both undergoing IVF. And the gamble paid off with four-of-a-kind.
In Vitro Fertilization has been in the news pretty regularly as of late. Off the dome, some knobs in the media accused Brangelina of having IVF, there was a lawsuit regarding overzealous use of IVF that was just settled in Australia, and we heard something about reproductive tourism becoming trendy. So, what's this whole business of using test tubes to make babies began 30 years ago. The first IVF baby, that the government acknowledges, was Louise Brown. No-longer-young Louise Brown done turned 30 the other day, according to the Los Angeles Times via the Houston Chronicle.

It turns out that dropping a joke on yourself from time-to-time is actually a good move for dudes. An aptly named study shows that men with self-deprecating wit actually do pretty well with the ladies. Hopefully, plays-on-words will have their heyday, one of these days.
Remember that young man that made a website to track down that girl he 'shared a moment with' on the subway? Yeah, they met up and it was pretty cool. Well we regret to inform you that "it's a tragedy for me to see the dream is over. And I never will forget the day we met. Girl I'm gonna miss you." It's like that, Milli.
A couple in Australia tried to sue their doctor over giving them twins through IVF. The explicitly wanted 1 baby and claim that his negligence is a major problem. They just got shot down but the case raised many questions about who should get access to IVF and they've really stirred up a hornets nest.
A wedding gift registry company in the UK is an eyelash away from becoming insolvent. Some people that got hitched in 3 months ago have yet to receive their gifts. This could be the makings of a fine buddy comedy.
Awesome question from the Daily Bedpost. Would you date an only child? There are clearly reasons to steer clear of the single child: solipsism, mom issues (or dad issues), socialization difficulties, reliance on television/imaginary friends for company, skewed POV, no experience with sharing a room/clothes/affection, pressure to have children nowâ€¦ basically a lot of stuff that home schooled kids go through just without the spelling bee dominance.
e do not know why we're so obsessed with the trials and tribulations of the Cherry Pit but we are. Duncanville, a Dallas suburb, has about the best little swingers club in Texas. And the squares (as well as the fuzz) are not happy about it. The long line of static betwixt the Cherry Pit and the municipality has been largely cat-and-mouse games between 2 equally determined opponents since November '07. The city decided that parking was a problem for neighbors, so they banned the sex club. There was hemming and hawing over what the definition of a sex club was, exactly. Duncanville wrote out a series of things that define a sex club, which is not permitted in residential ares, so Cherry Pit owner/operator/fan Jim Trulock did what any red-blooded American would do: sue. The city, of course, countersued and on and on and on.
