66 Miscarriages
Okay. I thought I saw something wrong, but apparently this is the number reported on the hospital documents. How could someone of Anna's age and being married, as one would assume for the correlary amount of years to Richard, possibly be able to do this. This doesn't seem physically possible. Think about it, in the movie, Anna looks, what, probably in her early fourties, maybe late fourties. If she started having miscarriages at age 18, which doesn't seem likely given her affluent background, they would only total (given two per year) 60 at age 48, which seems to dramatically outdo her fertile years, not to say the least about what doctors would have done with such an astounding rejection rate. Anybody else's reply's/reactions appreciated. I have not (due to slow deliveries) had a chance to view the original. Does this hold true. What do you guys think.

Re: 66 Miscarriages
I must say Baharna, you are INcorrect.
Indeed the 66 miscarriages ARE in the movie, I distinctly remember Noah saying "66 Miscarriages? Woah she never gave up"
I too was puzzled by this. But I'm sure it didnt mean all miscarriages, like, perhaps they foetuses (or foeti) died long before the 9 months were up? So they both gave up screwing and adopted some :evil psychotic pale insomniac girl instead. The originals say nothing on this topic, although Ring 0 might I havent seen that yet.

Re: 66 Miscarriages
Sorry Doug, it was miscarriage in 1966. You're misremembering the line that Noah says, and the movie clearly pans down the file, showing 65, 66, etc. if you snoop around the Dreamworks site, there's also a screenshot that continues to 67. In 69 the Morgans went to Europe, where Samara was conceived. She was born in 1970.

Re: Wasn't it 66 miscarriages?
I remember it being the dates and not the actual misscarriages. I mean who in the hell would go through that many before adopting. You would end the stress much earlier I should know my aunt has had several.

Re: It wasn't 66 miscarriages
It was definitely the date, and it was in the form "13 Dec 66" (although I can't remember the actual date). Noah did say something about Anna not giving up, but he didn't say "66 miscarriages?" He was looking through the file and saw that several miscarriages were listed, and most people only had time to read the most prominent listing (not even the whole thing, apparently).

Do you really believe that someone could go through 66 miscarriages?

Re: It wasn't 66 miscarriages
Regardless of whether it was 66 or '66, I think it was funny with the (I'll admit it) "token black guy" when he had the little talk with Noah.

GUY: So you're Richard Morgan. What's you secret.
NOAH: Diet and excercise, man. >D
GUY: No sh**!:D

Thank you, Rick Baker. You successfully scared the poop out of me.

Just to put the debate to rest-if it isn't already, a woman can only become pregnant theoretically once a month.

In order for her to know she was pregnant when she miscarries she'd have to be at LEAST a month along. But she had incompetent cervix, so let's say 3 months. Then a month to recover from the miscarriage.

So, at most, Anna could have gotten pregnant 3 times a year, with Richard batting 1.000.

So, for 66 miscarriages, that's 22 years of trying, never ever missing a conception.

Highly unlikely.

Oops my bad
Sorry Baharna yeah I was wrong. So it said something along the lines of:
File:
Miscarriages: 65, 66, 67, (as in years)

Noah: "Wow she never gave up"

or something like that. She had one every year. okay that makes sense.

Too much spare time
To have figured all of that out, you must have been pretty bored Rachel. Oh well you did prove the argument though.

???? Question!
Didn't the 66 on the records mean what year they had her in the hospital? There's no way someone could have 66 miscarriges, either that or the parents devote each and every night to it lol j/k.:lol
