Continuing on from here http://www.freejinger.org/topic/24686-upcoming-babies-part-4/ http://www.freejinger.org/topic/20716-upcoming-babies-part-3/ http://www.freejinger.org/topic/16289-upcoming-babies-part-2/ http://www.freejinger.org/topic/6924-upcoming-baby-season/ Last Updated 17 March 2017 Pregnant Recently Gave Birth
  2. In her first post since Sept 28, 2016, Alice, everyone's favorite pregnancy obsessed British mum, posted yesterday that she is password protecting her blog, so only people she knows well can continue to read it. But first, she wants us to know that she is NOT pregnant and is now 40. The Sept 28th post is so SO Alice and this is the last time we get this level of detail! For those not familiar with Alice, 9 DPO is 9 Days Post Ovulation and here we go! and so on. Goodbye, Alice, and best wishes. Nobody can blog body effluvia quite like you. May you enjoy your 40s and continue to enjoy the kids!
  3. I couldn't really decide if this woman would be of any interest but I've been following her for a while and there are a number of things that have recently made me go So she comes accross rather sweetly but she will jump on you if you disagree with her closely spaced, badly timed, ill-concieved pregnancies. She also prone to panic attacts and is very, very likely to flounce. 7th baby expected, has six boys in the same room (two bedroom house) says she'll just keep on having babies forever etc etc. Husband sleeps in boys room. She had a breakdown over imaginary twin baby, of which there was no evidence other than a hair whorl (?). She is going for the "autistic spectrum" diagnosis for two of her kids. I feel so bad because the oldest boy is having trouble behaving (7 years old) but from what I can gather she hardly ever takes them outside and they live in a tiny home. Of course he is homeschooled and has little contact outside the family. He keeps pestering her to take pregnancy tests. Gah, he is seven! Not much of a life for him It has won "Cutest Blog on the Block " but I don't see why. It's so TMI and selfish/delusional. I'm not saying the kids aren't cute but the God deciding family size factor definately isn't. alicesbaby.blogspot.com
  4. Okay, so by some bizarre cosmic coincidence one of my very best friends (who happens to also be my only friend that still lives in my home town) is also getting married. She is also marrying a guy from overseas. Her fiance is also moving here. She also met her fiance online. She is also getting married rather quickly. Her fiance is also tall and skinny. They are also having a very low key registry wedding. They are also getting married very soon. They too are inviting only a handful of very close guests. It's pretty fucking weird how similar our circumstances are. However they have diverged with her unexpected announcement that she is expecting. I'm happy for her but there's a very real and selfish part of me that feels cheated. Not long ago she and I were discussing children and how they weren't really on the cards for my fiance and I. She agreed that she had no pull towards being a parent. That made me happy because literally everyone else I grew up with except this friend has kids. It was a relief to have a close friend to navigate childlessness with. We could continue to make out plans to meet up whenever it was convenient. We'd continue our beloved traditions of trawling thrift stores and going to the market, meeting up on a whim. We could maybe sometimes do couple things and it would be great. Now that's all changing very suddenly. Mostly I feel very protective of her. She's going through some hard shit that I won't write about here, even on a totally anonymous not-a-blog. I know she won't be one of THOSE parents whose identity becomes their child. I still worry, though. I want my friend of over 20 years. I want her to be recognisable on the other side for MY sake, and for that I'm sorry. I can't help but feel left behind. I honestly don't know if I can ever carry a child to term, and if I did there's a strong likelihood they would be a very sickly child like I was. Still, the idea of having our kids growing up being friends the way we did is a tempting one. I have to remind myself that really isn't on the cards for me, and hey - maybe if I did have a kid our kids would hate each other. She really needs a friend right now and I'll be there for her no matter my worries and selfish impulses. I can promise her that. Wow, that got heavy. Ha ha. Wasn't expecting that because the whole point of this blog post was something a lot more light-hearted and far more frustrating: shopping for wedding clothes. She and I went out shopping this morning at our favourite vintage store. My friend is gorgeous and very slim - even now she's pregnant - and found a billion different things to try. Sure, it was harder than usual because she had to accommodate the kid, but she managed to find this gorgeous blue dress. Good thing she did, because the wedding is about 10 days away! I found a few things to try on but sadly vintage clothes just aren't made for busty girls. It doesn't help that the store mostly has sizes 6-10. Vintage 6-10s are even smaller than regular ones. Even in my teen years when I was a 6 I would have been too busty to find a good fit. Now that I'm a 12 it's hopeless. I tried on a 16 (and it was such a gorgeous dress!) and it was WAY too small for my chest, and swimming in other areas. It's a shame because I LOVE vintage clothes. I have a few in my closet I could wear to her wedding but they're very much winter dresses and there's no way in hell I'm wearing anything wintery in the middle of summer. So I'm calling bullshit on clothes shopping. I knew it would be painful. I wish I could just wear jeans and a nerd t-shirt like I usually do. Or even better, ripped jeans, my leather chucks and a flannel shirt (I'm not getting married 'til Autumn). In fact, my friend told me to go ahead and do it! But I have parents to placate and I think I'll look back with regret if I didn't dress up just a little. I'm definitely not wearing a wedding dress, or anything white. I have ordered a dress but it's wholesale and from China and I have no expectations of it fitting in any way even though I ordered two sizes bigger than I am. It's more of a guideline for when I inevitably have to have a dress quickly made because my tits are too big, my legs too short and the rest of me too average. It's not meant to be painful. TV and magazines say getting a wedding dress is a huge milestone in life, one to be witnessed by family and friends (and cameras!), a time when the blinders fall away and you realise in a moment from a fairytale just how beautiful you can be. Bullshit. Not for me. I've been cheated and it's just not cricket.

  6. http://www.adarlingkindoflife.com/2016/03/easter-basket-surprise.html Guess I am not surprised, but based on how much Kathleen already has on her plate with her husband (who suffered a traumatic brain injury) and her young daughter, I can't help but question their judgement, here... not to mention the fact that these kids are being conceived by a man who may be an adult, but who also is apparently very mentally diminished due to the accident.
  7. Perry's facebook for March 31 shows him with a t-shirt reading "Be Nice to Me, My Wife is Pregnant". The hashtag is "#baker's dozen". Does that mean this is their 13th kid? I can't even keep track anymore. I guess it is 13, since his facebook Intro says "Father of 13."
  8. Part 1 here: http://www.freejinger.org/topic/6924-upcoming-baby-season/ Part 2 here: http://www.freejinger.org/topic/16289-upcoming-babies-part-2/ Part 3 here: http://www.freejinger.org/topic/20716-upcoming-babies-part-3/ Since fundies (mostly) seem to breed like rabbits, we all find it hard to keep track of all of the women and their due dates. In this thread, we keep a list of all of the pregnant fundies we follow, their due dates, and their newborns. If there are any updates or discrepancies, post them below and I'll update the list! Pregnant Esther Shrader (Due in Spring) #10 Lydia Jeub (Due in spring) #1 Mica Serven (Due in March) Katy (Little White House) (Due March 9) #3 Jacinda (Growing Home) (Due in May) #5 Julie Knox (Due in May) #3 Zsuzsanna Anderson (Due in late May) #9 Abi Wissman (Due in May) #3 Jasmine Holmes (Due in late spring) #1 Whitney Bates (Due June 25) #2 Norma Gilligan (Due in June) #1 Valerie Waller (Due in June) #2 Sarah Burnett (Due in July) #1 Kennedy Morton (Due in July) #1 Anna Marie Maxwell (Due in July) #4 Erin Paine (Due in Summer) #2 Priscilla Waller (Due in October) #3 Monica Brown (Due date unknown) #5 Blair Tsantles (Due date unknown) #5 Lauren Zimmerman (Due date unknown) #5 Recently Gave Birth Bambi (Nursery of the Nation) - Sharlotte Hosanna (Born in December) #10 Bobye Holt - Scottlen Cross (Born December 14) #11 Julianne (Between the Lines) - Beckett James (Born December 21) #1 Alice (of Alice's Baby) - Rosalie (Due December 28) #8 Bonnie Engstrom - Thomas Emil (Born December 29) #6 Robyn Brown - Ariella Mae (Born January 10) #5/18 Hettie Brewner - Addison Marie (Born January 20) #5 Rachel Busenitz - Kendrick Alan (Born January 25) #1 Hannah Dornink - Ransom (Born in January) #2 Melissa Sanford - Name Unknown (Due in January) #2 Karen Alexander - Benjamin Seth (Born February 1) #8 Kelly Crawford - Zane Emory (Born February 1) #11 Lise Morton - Carolina Elise (Born February 4) #3 Dorothy Sanders - Edwin Gianavel (Born in February) #3 Updated March 5 by SunnySideUp
  9. The new gender revel trend:guns or glitter. I don't know what's worse: guns, gender reveal parties, or genderizing behaviors. http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/05/gender-reveal-announcements-gone-too-far.html
  10. Poor Michelle, she is going to be PISSED when she reads this. http://www.dawn.com/news/1247261/my-target-is-100-children-says-father-of-35
  11. http://sarah-heartsdesire.blogspot.com/ Sarah is pregnant with baby 4. Poor Amy got to go on a trip! I have not gotten to a formal post on it, but I am seeing signs of headcovering.
  12. I am part of a Quiverfull Facebook group. I joined it just to observe and learn. I am very shocked by the ideals. Nancy of Above Rubies is worshipped. They constantly debate and put down all forms of contraception, even natural family planning, and working mothers. I have never seen anything like it before. If a woman prevents using NFP she is a heathen. Most of the women are pregnant with their 7th or 9th child. Although they believe in submission, many complain that their husband "is not on board with trusting God in fertility" and ask for prayers that their husbands change. Can pregnancy be an addiction?
  13. I searched, but didn't see anything. Has this family been talked about yet? http://www.people.com/article/gardner-q ... ?v=desktop I've been following their story on fb for a while, and enjoyed watching the babies get stronger, but then they shared that the Learning Channel filmed the birth. Wonder if they'll get their own series too?
  14. Study reveals unplanned pregnancy reaches a 35 yr low thanks to IUD and Obama Care Hey Fundies see what educaiton does http://www.medicaldaily.com/pregnancies-contraceptives-family-planning-benefits-376347
  15. I heard this blurb about a local woman on NPR this morning. Birth parents want their 17wks pregnant surrogate to abort 1 fetus after learning the 2 eggs implanted have become triplets. Apparently, this isn't the first case of birth parents wanting their surrogate to selectively terminate. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3359941/Surrogate-mom-carrying-triplets-refuses-demands-birth-parents-abort-one-fetuses.html I find this case troubling because it seems to me these surrogates have given up some agency in these contracts. What gives the birth parents the right to make these type of demands?
  16. NARAL apparently didn't care too much about the Doritos ultrasound ad; adweek.com/news/advertising-branding/how-doritos-super-bowl-ad-kicked-twitter-conversation-about-birth-control-169493 Here's the Tweet that NARAL had made; And here's the ad on YouTube; I think NARAL sort of stepped in it though and the only thing they really did with this tweet was give ammo to the anti-choice freaks. (Of course NARAL could tweet that they thought the weather was nice today and the anti-choice freaks would twist that around for their own sick purposes).
  17. So the CDC apparently came out and advised that any woman of childbearing age not currently on birth control shouldn't drink. ever. not because you are pregnant but because becoming pregnant is not outside the realm of possibility. I saw this and immediately thought this sounded like something our fundie friends would say. bc not only is a pregnant woman's body merely a vessel for the child she's carrying, but all women's bodies are potential vessels and are thus rightly at all times subject to the scrutiny and control of others. what??? http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2016/02/02/cdc-urges-young-women-avoid-all-alcohol-unless-theyre-using-contraception/79701890/
  18. I went duh where it said parent of larger families have less time to invest.Interesting study but is it really the number of kids, parenting style or both that determine how well you raise them? http://www.techtimes.com/articles/121178/20160104/smaller-families-more-beneficial-for-children-study-finds.htm
  19. Zsu is pregnant! She's made an announcement on her blog and linked to it from her Facebook. She's thirteen weeks along - which basically means the next twenty-three weeks of my life are going to be spent clicking into her blog first thing every morning to see if there's an update Zsu was my gateway fundie and to get this news first thing on a rainy Monday morning just makes my day a little brighter Snark on, comrades!
  20. I was seriously tempted to dump this in with the Maxhell Thanksgiving thread, since they did the same thing on the blog (seriously... who announces a pregnancy as an afterthought to 7-layer salad?), but I figured it was time I learned how to start a topic anyway.
  21. Yep! Apparently the latest Kim/Kanye spawn is going to be called Saint. Only a smidge better than, say, South, but ridiculous nonetheless. Given Kanye's self-absorbed-ness, it's kind of fitting.
  22. From Time From Vanity Fair http://time.com/4130646/baby-names-instagram-2015/ http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2015/12/instagram-filters-baby-names
  23. On the Are They All Yours FB page, Zsu talks about learning so much from a pregnant cat........hmmmmmm Pregnant again? Did I miss an announcement?
  24. JB's just put out another unintentionally hilarious blog post. I don't think she wants to annoy feminists (although she certainly wants to do that) as much as she needs MRA/PUA validation so desperately that she just vomits out anything she thinks will please them. http://www.donotlink.com/e2lx UH, JB, who's going to raise and pay for all those children confiscated at birth so that society will "learn to value men"? Is the government going to set up Romanian-style orphanages with taxpayer money? Yep, your conservative friends will certainly approve of that And there are already places where men of are paid to deposit their genetic material, where women can pay a fee to use a man's DNA to make a child without him having to have any financial and emotional commitments to that child. They are called Sperm Banks.
  25. Say Jessa gets married in the next couple of months (likely), falls pregnant quickly (likely) Anna gets pregnant with #4 (likely). Jill's pregnant. So that's potentially 3 Duggars pregnant... What if, somehow, Michelle becomes pregnant with the elusive #20? HOLY TLC & PEOPLE JACKPOT.
