    I’m wondering why the other Gosselin girl is in pants and not a dress?

    • Noname

      Maybe so its easier to tell them apart? I noticed that on the show when the kids were younger Kate would sometimes have two of the little girls dressed the same and the other in a different outfit. Or maybe Alexis (the one in the pants) doesnt like skirts.

    Just so you know, it wasn’t in-vitro. That involves placing embryos back into a woman’s uterus and they would never put more than 2-4. She got pregnant using inter-uterine insemination.

    They were conceived via IUI not IVF.

    explain the insemination thing
    she was implanted but also had sex thus increasing her chances of multiples ?
    seeing how they had the twin girls already they were impatient to let nature take its course and jump started the process.
    One of the older twins is just an angry bitter lil thing. too many siblings and drama between the parents

      No, IVF and IUI are two totally different procedures. With IVF, doctors extract the mother’s egg and father’s sperm and mix them in a petri dish, so the embryo is conceived externally to the mother and then implanted into her womb later. With IUI, the mother is injected with a drug that makes her more likely to ovulate (release a fertile egg), which can then be fertilized normally inside her fallopian tube, either the old fashioned way (sex) or by inserting sperm into her uterus. It’s a more natural process either way you look at it. The only difference with normal procreation is the drug given to make the mother ovulate, but it sometimes results in multiples because the drug might make more than one egg be released (hyper-ovulation).

    Kate, stop treating your children like a commodity. The kids are no longer babies or toddlers so stop trying to stunt their individualism by dressing them the same. Face it, your years of exploiting them for financial gain has come to an end. And from the looks of it, you will not win a popularity contest for your ethics, honesty or integrity.

      She did not dress them the same in this picture, that is their school uniform.

      You have to be stupid if you don’t realize that there in their school uniforms. Even a moron could notice that and Alexix was always a tom-boy. She never really liked dresses. She likes animals and getting dirty. Thats probably why she is wearing pants. Leah and Hannah are more girly and enjoy wearing dresses and skirts. Besides, if Kate did want to dress them the same then thats up to her. There is nothing wrong with it so mind your own freaking busisness. I am a triplet and my sisters and I dressed the same very often until we were about eleven. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
