"... to notice how often she got pregnant — seven times in recent years. This weekend they found out, in the most gruesome way imaginable."
How do people fail to notice 7 full-term pregnancies? Or is it that they don't want to admit that they had 7 extended opportunities to observe that a baby who should have been there was not there and they let it go?
The woman, Megan Huntsman, has left us with a striking and memorable mugshot:
She looks — among other things — surprised. If she did what she's accused of, I can see why she's surprised that what she's been doing has — after 7 iterations — been noticed.

The article doesn't provide enough information to know what happened. Were these the products of miscarriages? Did she kill full term babies?I answered:
I wrote "full-term" based on the article's saying she's "accused of killing her babies after giving birth to them."
You don't say that a woman who's had a miscarriage has "given birth." But I guess "full-term" assumes they were not premature. Maybe they were premature and born alive but they failed to survive. Perhaps she got pregnant over and over trying to deal with some problem that all the babies had, some medical mystery that she never was able to get help about and she hid the dead bodies out of grief and shame.
