Video: Nadya Suleman Giving Birth-Jimmy Kimmel

This ish is too funny of Miss Octopussy aka Octomom.  Had to share.  Watch it.  It is so worth it!-Dr.FB


Thank You Dr. Funkenberry Readers!

Just wanted to give a big shout out all the faithful Dr.Funkenberry fans and readers out there.

For the umpteenth straight month, we surpassed the last month's total, each time doing it earlier!

Our biggest story of the month was the Octuplets story with CNN linking to us as one of the top blogs talking about it.

We have come a long way in a super short amount of time.  From a mini-interview with George Michael to an interview with Nikka Costa as well as listed on Word Press's top 100 blogs to watch out for late last year before we moved, we are very grateful to you, the readers and also the people who provide tips.

Although we still have a bone to pick with George (What happened to that live dvd buddy?) and realizing sometimes stories that come from celebs themselves do never materialize, regardless, we are thankful for the information.

As we grow, so do the haters, but what is funny, is the haters spend more time coming to the site than the people that like it, so actually, in the end, it's a pretty good win for me.  ;-)

Thank you to all, and I promise soon more interviews, and also a few podcast and video casts and still on pace sometime in the future for some items.  Much love and thank you soooooooooooooo much for everything!!!-Dr.FB


Doctor, Doctor! From Octuplets To Quadruplets



Unreal.  Unfrickenreal.  The doctor who made sure that Nadya Suleman would be a household name with octuplets has done it again!

Dr. Michael Kamrava (bonehead of 2009) transferred seven embryos into a woman who was around 49 years old.  This person is 5 months pregnant. 

They are concerned about Kamrava's practice and if there should be more regulation over fertility doctors.  Hello!

"Historically, we have been very hesitant to regulate anything close to procreation from parents making judgments about how many children they will have and when," said Kirk O. Hanson, ethics professor and executive director of the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University.

"However, that worked under a natural process of fertilization and incubation. There are serious questions about whether it works in an era of scientifically enhanced procreation."

The eggs were donated by a woman in her 20's in the the 49 year old.

Sigh.  This is just some straight bull.-Dr.FB

Here are some highlights lowlights from the NBC Interview:

For seven years beginning in her teens, Nadya Suleman tried to have a baby. She suffered three miscarriages. She tried artificial insemination and fertility drugs, to no avail. By 2000, a back injury and her inability to bear children had sent her into a deep depression, in which she told a psychiatrist that she had suicidal thoughts.

On many days, she did not get out of bed. One doctor asked her what activities she had given up. Her answer: "Everything." That same year, she tried in-vitro fertilization and became pregnant.

"And then," she said, "I just kept going in."

"I just longed for certain connections and attachments with another person that I -- I really lacked, I believe, growing up," Suleman said. "I didn't feel as though, when I was a child, I had much control of my environment. I felt powerless.

And that gave me a sense of predictability. I -- reflecting back on my childhood, I know it wasn't functional. It was pretty -- pretty dysfunctional, and whose isn't?" Suleman didn't elaborate in the portion of the interview released by NBC (more will be broadcast on "Today" on Monday and on "Dateline NBC" on Tuesday). But she said her childhood made her yearn for many children of her own.

"That was always a dream of mine, to have a large family, a huge family," she said.


Hmm. I wonder if it was always a baby's dream to have 13 brothers and sisters and perhaps struggle with life because a mother thought of her dreams and wishes before what is right and better for the children.  Just because you can have 14 children, doesn't mean you should have!-Dr.FB
