No, they already have one son.  They just couldn't take no for an answer when they wanted a second kid and now are pissed off that they're getting exactly what they asked for.  What a couple of pricks.

From the guy's entry:

Thankfully, we nailed it on the first try. But while we were hoping for one girl, instead we got two boys. My initial reaction was full of disappointment, anger, fear, and guilt. My wife, who had been dreading the possibility of twins for weeks, took it worse. In her mind, this was her fault, since she'd encouraged the fertility doctors to put in two embryos to stack the deck.

If you were hoping for one girl, why not go adopt some poor kid who doesn't have parents?  I really do not understand people with fertility issues who go to such great lengths to conceive.  Maybe you just weren't meant to have more kids (apparently this is true of this couple since they're now freaking out over twins).  Or maybe you were supposed to go adopt some kid who already exists but needs parents.

They wanted 1 additional child, and got pregnant with twins. They're pissed that the new pregnancy is a multiple. Older son != babby.

The first kid is 3.5 yrs old, so not exactly very far out of the baby stage.  I don't blame them for wanting an additional child, but they knew what they were in for with IVF and  that having multiples was a very real possibility.  If they weren't prepared for that potential outcome, they should have adopted or given up the 'dream' of having siblings.

If only there were some way to do selective abortion. You know, remove on of the sacs.

Oh wait, once you found they were both boys, why didnt you abort and start again??

In this day and age where people have a gazillion options for family planning, there is no such thing as having "too many children."  Especially in this case where these idiots sought out IVF even though they were neither financially or emotionally capable of taking care of more kids.  That doesn't have anything to do with bad mouthing parenthood.  It has to do with being short-sighted selfish pricks who have just intentionally caused 2 people to exist who they don't want.

Great, then I hope you end up like the Duggars or the Octomom. I'm sure you'll be just as cheerful and self-righteous as you are now.

Especially in this case where these idiots sought out IVF even though they were neither financially or emotionally capable of taking care of more kids.

They were financially and emotionally capable of taking care of one more kid. Two is twice as many. If you don't understand that, then you probably shouldn't be saying things like "there is no such thing as having 'too many children'."

Then they should have only implanted one embryo.  Or aborted one of the fetuses.  Or better yet, adopt.  See all those options that exist to control exactly how many children you have?

Financially, they can afford IVF but they live in a one bedroom apt.  Where did they plan on putting the 2nd kid?  Or the first kid for that matter?

In many cases fertility treatments are cheaper and less of a hassle than adopting.

 The point is that they should have understood all the risks of IVF including an increased risk of multiple birth, and if they weren't financially and emotionally capable of that, they should have not gone through the procedure.  There are plenty of children from newborn to older all looking for a loving home to take them in that would have been a better option to guarantee having "1 girl" then IVF.
 
2013-09-04 06:00:50 PM  
Similar thing happened to a couple friend's of mine, although it was their first. They had tried for a long time, didn't have any luck, and finally decided to go with IVF. They ended up having twins last summer. At least they had a boy and a girl, it got the "let's try one more time for a boy/girl" thing out of the way.
 
2013-09-04 06:01:33 PM  
I really hate IVF. Until all the "unwanted" children of the world are adopted why in hell do we have to create more kids in a laboratory. DNA means nothing in raising and caring for a child you selfish asshat.

If the couple doesn't understand that implanting two embryos could result in twice as many than the one kid they wanted, they shouldn't be saying things like "we're pissed."
 
2013-09-04 06:04:28 PM  
So everyone here thinks you can just like go to an orphanage and pick out a kid to adopt and take them home or something?
 
2013-09-04 06:04:28 PM  
I've known a few families that went IVF and ended up with twins.  And, although the pregnancies looked all right, the kids ended up having some very serious problems.  Just wait until the kids get here and need heart surgery, orthopedic surgery, gastro surgery, etc.

As the poster up thread said, when nature says not to reproduce, listen.
 
2013-09-04 06:05:01 PM  
What a couple of idiot farkwads.

Maybe their bodies were trying to tell them they were too stupid and self-centered to have kids in the first place?

Twins aren't that hard as compared to Irish twins.  We made it through.

Well said, both times.  There are a ton of kids that could use decent homes.  Decent being a step up from "foster-care hell".  But the problem is that most white people don't want brown kids.  Even the progressives.

I do want to give a shout out to a friend and his wife who already had one girl and decided to adopt to expand their faimily.  They both work for a large fortune 500 companies, making really good money.  They went out of their way and adopted a family of 4 hispanic siblings (my friend and his wife are caucasian).  Didn't give it a second thought.  And they are awesome parents; these kids won the lottery.  Then you have this shiat-stains in TFA that complain that their family make-up isn't exactly what they want.

2013-09-04 06:10:09 PM  
After years of trying and suffering through two failed pregnancies, my wife and I located a specialist. On our second IUI, everything worked. In fact, it was a Buy One Get One Free special and we are expecting twins in late December or early January. We found out last week that we are having one of each. It is a bit overwhelming for sure, but we are certainly looking forward to that adventure.
 
2013-09-04 06:10:58 PM  
So, despite knowing all the risks, they went ahead and did it and now they are whining about it. douche noozles.

Why don't you adopt? Why don't most people adopt? They want their own bio children. Additionally it's not like getting a kitten, adoption is a very difficult and lengthy process especially if you want an infant. If you do not want an infant, many children who are older and need homes have medical and other problems that the new parents don't want to take on...even though it's a crapshoot with your own bio kids that they might have medical problems...it's the same reason most people don't adopt kittens with medical problems. And that all assumes you can both get approved for and afford adoption. Aside from my work totally disqualifying me from adopting, I have medical problems that would preclude me from most programs.

I can't have kids, but I also don't want them...so I'm completely fine with it. None of this bothers me on that level. A lot of people aren't fine with infertility though, and such suggestions are just dickery.

Don't get me wrong, these people biatching about the twins are farking asshats too. Especially since they had every opportunity to prevent the 'problem' by placing only one egg. They could also undergo a reduction (selective abortion) or place one or both for adoption. They're just farking morons, ...like many parents.
 
2013-09-04 06:28:04 PM  
The twins are going to love it when they find their parents posts online when they're about 15.
Always good to know Mom and Dad where "pissed" to learn of your existance.
 
2013-09-04 06:28:16 PM  
In other news, abortion can now be called 'selective reduction' to make abortion-happy people not feel bad about it.  Well, not that they were going to feel bad anyway.  Is it still 'selective reduction' in the 3rd trimester?

Most people don't adopt (and I didn't) because it's easier to have your own kids - just like you pointed out.  These people already had one kid, but wanted another.  They didn't have an easy time creating another kid so adoption would have been an option for them.  Having never been through the adoption process myself, I don't know what all it entails. I would imagine that it takes a lot of effort and expense to go through IVF and carry a baby to term as well.  Are the two paths comparable in expense and effort?  I don't know not having gone either route.

Personally, if I wanted another kid I would completely consider adopting.  Getting my husband on board is the tricky part  but since neither of us wants more kids, it's a moot point.

Hey there bro, u mad?  The selfish asshats are the ones spreading their cooch 'n' splooge everywhere all willy nilly and making all the unwanted babies available for adoption.  While I empathize with the unwanted children, and would do something for them if it was within my means, you can't fault the parents for wanting offspring of their own loins, as the lord intended.

2013-09-04 06:42:05 PM  
Isn't it common to abort one (or more) of the multiples in an IVF situation? Side note, one of my friends just had triplets using IVF. Oof.

That being said, my husband and I have already decided that we'd go the adoption route before IVF. I don't really understand why you wouldn't, particularly if you don't want multiples. One of my friends is having a hard time conceiving and is going to try IVF. But she said if it fails once she and her husband will just live without children. But.. like... if you want kids enough to try IVF why wouldn't you consider adoption? Don't understand that mindset.
