So it is a great article if I do say so myself. :o) First the minor quote mistakes did not bother me, but I have decided to at least correct them here to make myself feel better. They do change the context of the story and I have gotten several questions from people that know us regarding this 2nd one.
Quote: “Eddie administered the steroid shots, he said, often distracting his wife before injecting her. They waited pensively while their children, which they now knew were two girls, grew in Kristile’s womb.”
Actually, it was the terbutaline pump site that Eddie had to change once a week. The steroid shots were administered when I was in the hospital by the docs.
Quote: “But women who take some fertility drugs even once have a higher probability of conceiving multiples in any future pregnancy, Kristile said. She was one of these women.”
Actually, I said that women who have one set of twins have a higher chance of having another set in future pregnancies. NOT that women who take fertility drugs have that chance. Fertility drugs wear off and would need to be taken again to be effective. I took only 2 cycles of clomid, a very mild fertility pill, which has only a 5% chance of twinning.
I really do think it was a very good article. It was very fascinating seeing it all in print. Thank you Star!
