My opinion may also stem from the fact that I may be missing one piece of the puzzle and if someone could enlighten me I'd love to hear it. I know exactly how people will respond when I tell them yes my triplets are spontaneous but how do people respond when you tell them they came from fertility treatments? Is it a negative reaction? I've been curious for quite sometime about this, anybody??? I've been met with lots of negativity but not for the way my kids were conceived. For example more than one person has said to me "I would kill myself if I had triplets." SERIOUSLY?! You'd really kill yourself if you had three beautiful perfect healthy children? There is something very wrong with you to think that! Anyways...
I honestly don't think people have bad intentions when they ask you if "they are natural." I theorize that people A) just want an explanation/reason why they see three little humans of the same height in-front of them or B) out of fear, want to know if it can happen to them! I love that being able to imply to people that yes my kidos are completely random and it could happen to you just as it happened to me, ha!
Like the author of the blog post above and most people that bombard me with questions about my kids as I'm trying to go about my day, I totally wonder the same thing too when I meet other parents of multiples. For me it is about connecting with someone and sharing a commonality about how our multiples came to be. If we both conceived spontaneously then that's just one more thing we have in common, but of course I would never ask since I now know better : )
