Do you think it's possible to conceive octuplets spontaneously? I just saw the link that says the parents of the octuplets have six kids already, including a set of twins, and it says the parents are fairly young (who knows if the reporting is accurate, of course). Could a woman's body release eight eggs on its own? I remember as a kid reading in the Guiness Book of World Records about largest sets of multiples (yes, I was a total nerd. I also read the dictionary)... and I remember reading of women birthing that many in "the olden days" although few of the babes lived... so I guess it could happen. What do you think? (Mods, I hope it's OK to discuss this... not a debate about that family in particular, more about what a body can do).
