Vent... — The Bump

Vent...

So I just have a little rant about something I found out today that kinda bugs me. DHs brother and my SIL have received a large sum of money from her mothers passing, and they have so far put it To good use by getting her an overly large pair of fake breasts. Now I have nothing against implants and I have considered them myself, but I'm a small B and she was a D to begin with. Now she looks like a triple F or more, it's absurd. But anyways... NOW they have decided they want children, and she is actually paying for fertility treatments bc she wants multiples!!!!! Umm...what????? I think I have Heard of ppl doing this before and I don't know how I feel about it.... I'm almost a little offended for some reason.....they haven't even given it a shot naturally, and she has no known IF issues. I'm usually not one to hate on others ESP family but this just seems way over the top to me. Rant over.

Re: Vent...

  • That's crazy!  About the boobs and then about paying for IF treatments...didn't even know you can pay for that if you didn't really need it to begin with...I'd be ranting too if someone close to me went to those measures!
  • Wow...she sounds like a real gem.

  • Wow, that seems a little nuts, plus I would think any respectable RE would interview them and say no way.  I dont think they are in the business to produce multiples just because someone wants that.  My old RE said my goal is one healthy baby and one healthy Mom.  Multiples can happen and we had to sign the paperwork admitting we knew it was a possiblity but I think if we walked in there with no IF issues and stated we wanted mulptiples he would have turned us away.

    Wow, and she will likely get to be a mom of one or more kids. How lovely for her.

  • Hey K, it's K! :) LOVE the pictures of your little man in your siggy, too cute!

    Wow.. that would irk me too, for sure. I've considered a boob job, I'm a B also lol.. But really? If my Grandmother passed and gave me any $ the last thing I'd think to do with it is get a boob job. I would most definitely put the money towards our IF efforts - but we've been trying for 14 months, and you said she hasn't even tried at all yet. It's very offensive.

    I'm gonna w/b on FB right now, btw. :)

  • Heyyyyyy love!!!! I just got your message :). And yea I do my best to stay out of family drama onNicks side bc there is A LOT. But this blew me away. She seems to believe she's going to find a doctor who will agree to this. Unless you are in need of it~ I don't think it's right. Theyare a little cray cray to say the least. She hasn't even tried naturally for more than a monthaccording to her, unless the entire thing is just MUD and that wouldn't surprise me either. And as far as the boob job... I guess if I had the spare cash laying around I would do it too ;)
