I cannot stand Octomom, but just thought I would share the update of her possibly losing her children, but apparently conditions are not bad enough for that just yer http://omg.yahoo.com/blogs/now/octomom-i...



I feel very bad for these poor kids. What a shame. Looks like a system fail for the kids.

I think even 6 embryos in her case was still really stupid. She already has at least one set of twins, and I think she actually has two? She obviously does not have a problem get pregnant this way since she already HAD 6 kids. To put 6 (and holy hannah...12!?!?!) embryos in a woman who has proven to be quite able to get pregnant and maintain that pregnancy is ridiculous. If she was a woman who had been unable to get pregnant via invitro time and time and time again, then 6 embryos would increase her liklihood of having one implant, but having 6 kids already...that obviously wasn't the case.



I think she's a nut job, and I think she found doctors who were either money hungry or just as nutty. The spray paint is rather odd, but I have sharpee on my walls, so who am I to bitch? Pantless kids, normal, in 60 degree weather, not good though. Although, we only have it on heresay what the temp was. She has 8 toddlers, I don't care if she has 2 or 3 older kids...8 toddlers are going to leave you with a messy/cluttered house, so I excuse the mess as long as it's not a health hazard. I potty trained my child outdoors last summer, so my kid shit outside...albeit, I had indoor plumbing as well. As for the haircut...WTF? $500 on a haircut with products? And it doesn't even look that great!



Should her kids be taken away? I'm not in the position to say yes or no, I havn't been inside her home, I have only heard what the media has to say and we all know how they like to twist things to sell headlines. I feel bad for her kids, but I do not feel bad for her, I sure hope CPS keeps an eye on it, I couldn't imagine raising that many children and not going crazy!

Didn't I recently read that she is going into doing porn to earn money for her kids? Ugh. That woman annoys me.



@ Tabitha, apparently she is pro-life and didn't believe in destroying the eggs, so she chose to have them implanted. To me, a much more sensible route would have been to donate them to someone else in need of them.

Ok so I was wrong! There are no identical twins in the mix, and she did not want to use up the frozen embryos she had in storage. She used FRESH embryos for every single child and still has frozen embryos in storage today!

Sickening!

I used to feel like she was just selfish and whatnot, but now she sounds downright dangerous! What a nut case.

And that dr deserved to have his license revoked.

Octomom is clearly mentally ill. I am pro life... pro QUALITY OF LIFE. Having 14 kids with no partner or money to support you is not quality of life for anyone involved.

Oh gosh, 12!!!!!!!!!!

Holy frick ok then if it was 6 I don't think the dr was incompetent but if it was 12 then that dr was a real wack job.

I do remember two sets were identical so either way only 6 embryos took but stilllllll.

Gosh. I love babies, I really really do but nothing on earth would make me risk 12 embryos at once. She could donate them to embryo adoption and then they wouldn't be 'killed'

I agree with her being insane and the doctor being completely irresponsible and I hope CPS does what is right! but this article is sketch - we have to be careful with assuming this hairstylist is credible. she is such a long-time friend and so concerned about the kids that she did her hair with kids locked in a room AND charged $520????????? And that's just one sketchy part of the article.

According to the link I provided on page 1, her octuplets derived from her still having 6 eggs left. She insisted they all be placed because she did not want any of them destroyed. 2 split into twins. Just as Laura said.



Later they found, the doctor put 12 in her, only 8 sealed to her womb. That doctor was fired for putting so many in at one time. He also stated that she still has more frozen. YIKES!

I heard a total of six embryos were implanted and two split to identicals. Six, while high, is IMO not ridiculous since many sets of sextuplets have been born and none were identical. Gosselins for one.

But IMO she never should have kept all 8. It was purely selfish. Those kids would have had such a better life had they been adopted out

She's supposed to be going through training to become a person fitness trainer. I believe it was Dr. Drew who set her up with one of the top guys to train her.

She's been whining and bitching about everything since day one.

If she has help, she acts like a diva and bitches about the fact that what they're doing is not up to her standards. If she has no help, she lets everything go to crap.

Don't forget that at least 2 of her kids have autism or other serious disabilities.

Nadya makes me sick. She's a diva who doesn't give a crap. If you actually sit and watch some of her interviews...it really looks like she's not all there. I still say that she's an unfit mother and ALL her kids should be taken and placed with families who can care about them.



As for the fact that she had 8 at once, the story that I heard was that she had 3 eggs implanted (relatively normal procedure), then was told they didn't take so had 3 more implanted. I can't remember if there are 2 sets of identical twins, or if the doctor on *told* her it was 3 eggs and actually implanted 5. Either way...still crazy to have more when you can't afford the ones (SIX of them!!) you already have.

I saw a show Oprah did on her and I just felt so bad for those kids. One was sick and he was taken to the dr by a family friend. Mom couldn't even take her sick baby to the dr she had to care forthe other 13

I'm not a fan of the duggars really but at least they had kids spread out enough that they could manage to help out with the little ones.

Nadya made a comment about how someone is always crying and she shrugged it off like its ok.

And in the show they had footage of an older sibling stomping on the head of a baby while the baby was asleep in a pack n play" babies were about 8 months I'd imagine. Maybe older cuz I guess they would look younger then they are but still. Literally stomping on the head. I just aboutcried!

I always thought she should have given up the 8 for adoption separately.

I can't stop imagining the difference their lives would have if they were individually adopted out to desperate couples who would have loved on that single baby and given them the world.

:( instead they're just one of the herd of kids and I doubt any single child will ever receive enough love attention support or education from that single mom.

I just feel bad for the kids.

All of them really.

Seems to me her plan backfired. She may be famous but for ALL the wrong reasons. Famous for being an idiot maybe.



Also, her two oldest children are 10 and 11. I see no excuse. These kids should be helping keep the house.



Both doctors that did the IVF procedures have been dismissed.



It appears she should have some good education beneath her for properly raising 14 kids. She obviously has a screw loose. I think she is overwhelmed and the financial burden is bringing her down. It is only a matter of time before she looses the battle.

Tina: You don't think spray painting the walls of your home is odd? Really? So all those fumes in the house (especially with those kids) is okay? Showing children that it's okay to disrespect their environment by permanently marring the walls is okay? Showing blatant disregard for others' things is okay?

And her house is a pit. A little cluttered is one thing. This woman DOES NOT have a job outside the home. There's no reason for her to NOT clean her house. Hell, even when I'm sick I manage to pick up clothes off the floor and do a load of laundry or load the dishwasher. Her nursery is a nightmare: there's a long coax cable lying on the floor connected to the wall in easy reach of toddlers.

And I'll repeat: the ONLY reason she had this many children was to be famous. There is something seriously twisted and sick about that.

I saw the pictures and have to say that woth 14 children 8 under three i dont expect it to be clean, all the children seem clean and happy, the potty training outside hell I would try if I could get my daughter to do as of now she refuses to and i leave her bottom naked she likes to poop on the floor! sorry i digress. As far as the spray paint on the wall being a little weird none of it really concerns me. The chair under the door i dont think is appropriate and the hair cut, regardless of whether or not it included two previous cuts and products was ridiculus if she is losing her house why is she paying the stylist that kind of money. I think like others maybe she has an undiagnoised disabilty. The level of her maturity and thought process reminds me more of a teen mom. All have to say is it is a sad state when people like her become moms. What wasmthe doctor thinking. If there was every a case for getting a license to have children here is prime example! Lol

She doesn't care about her children, they were a means to an end: fame. She got pregnant with 8 babies at once to become famous. What person in their right mind allows people to tag the inside of their house with spray paint? Or shit outside? She's obviously mentally disturbed and she has no right to those kids.

Just to add, the haircutter said she cut all the kids hair for free...the $500 was only for the Mom's hair. Ridiculous.



And, yes, those doctors should have some legal requirement to help her in some way. It was her choice but she obviously was not thinking clearly. I think if you are single and have 6 children already, you should not be allowed to have more via "procedure" unless you can prove you have the means to support them through child/teen hood. Such as if you had won the lottery, were given a large inheritance or made a massive amount of money (millions).

No doubt Jody she is responsible for asking them but they have taken advantage for what ever reason of a mentally compromised person, I don't know if it was the god complex, the initial fee they got or the thought of fame and fortune from the birth but they absolutely screwed her over

" she didn't get her self into thus alone"

Well, she did really. She is a consenting adult, and she already HAD 6 kids she couldn't afford before she went for the rest of them. So yeah, while the doctors involved should absolutely be held accountable, blaming them is a cop out.

I have a problem with a "friend" being so concerned about her children that she reports her to services BUT still charging $500. for a hair cut, what's it cost to cut hair nothing? Curate god the product cut but if you're so concerned do it as a favor, that doesn't really scream friend to me

I have a major problem with someone on food stamps spending $500+ on haircuts. Granted, it was for her and all 14 kids, but does she not own a pair of scissors??? That's about $35 per haircut. My kids and I go to SuperCuts and pay $12 so I can afford food. In my world, food is more important than hair cuts. Of course in my world, two children is plenty. My heart truly breaks for those poor children. Their mother is not mentally stable.

The people who allowed her to become a single mum to so many children really should step up and support them. If she got preg the usual way the father/s would have to pay support the drs happily took her money to creat these lives with little thought to the way she wa going to support them they to me are as responsible as any dead beat dad, at least a one night stand isn't going to create so many babies, I don't really like the woman but seriously she didn't get her self into thus alone

Ah, Ok. I will admit I only read the headlines, I didn't delve that deep. One of those things I just passed off as unimportant because I had better things to do at the time.....

I don't understand how one would choose the route she did to obtain a baby. KNOWING full well she would have multiples, without the means to even support them. I think she made a very selfish decision, and because of that her beautiful children have to pay. So sad.....

I am far from surprised. I just watched a segment with her explaining how she can no longer afford her children. Even though she jumped up and down in the beginning saying she would ALWAYS be able to afford them, including feed them all. Now she is on Government food stamp assistance. She has been for the past 3 months. I am sickened by her, as she has put her children into very vulnerable living situations. They deserve more, just as any child does. I especially feel terrible, as I can see the end very near for her being able to keep them. Which means they will be separated from siblings.



Oh and if she cannot afford food, how the hell can she afford a hairstylist to come to her home? FMN. I just don't understand some people and how they take care of their sweet, innocent little babies. It makes sooo furious!



ETA:

I do feel sorry for the Mom too. I mean, she wants it to work so bad, it is obvious to me. She is in serious denial. She needs help and won't accept, in fear of not making it on her own. Though, with that many children, I don't care who you are, you need a helping hand. I don't mean money, I mean support in raising the children.



They are ALL soooo damn cute. My heart breaks for every one of them. :(
