For the sake (and mental health) of our beloved @Carm_88 please put your Duggar baby name suggestions and birth predictions here. It will be so much easier for her. I do have to mention (and I have been hanging around FJ for far too long) Jezebel is not an original suggestion. It has been a top contender for every new Duggar babe from 2005 onwards. @Carm_88 - love you and love the work you do. @Coconut Flan, Thanks for permission and pin this if you want.
Seasons! With this you get two new outfit categories, Hot Weather and Cold Weather. Here's little Adam Pearson in his cold-weather gear: And here's Mommy: Eliza's Hot Weather outfit includes cool shades. Only issue is, Sims wear their outfit both indoors and out... which leads to this. Further proof that Emily is slowly ditching her upbringing... VEST TOP. SHORTS. SHORTS. THAT SHOW. KNEE. *faints* Jobs require daily tasks. You don't technically have to do them, but it helps. Emily's is to play chess. Adam's going to be a big brother! I love how Sims get a moodlet when they have good WooHoo Eliza loves composing tunes. Eating a healthy omelette. Playing in the sprinkler! For some reason, Sims stay in their normal clothes. In Sims 3, Sims changed into their swimwear. Adam is Cute #1: playing in the paddle pool! Adam is Cute #2: playing in the sprinkler! Yep, his Hot outfit is very similar to his normal outfit. Yet, if he wears the normal outfit, he risks getting a Hot moodlet. Meh. Festivals occur fairly regularly. There is no scheduled one during Summer, so I created one called Summer Festival. Traditions are Fireworks, Barbecue and Water Fun, so Eliza is fulfilling the Barbecue one. Adam is Cute #3: He just is! Personally I always like the Toddler stage. I think it's because he's wearing glasses, it just adds extra cute factor. More pool time. Eliza threw a party for the Summer Festival. She barbecues some potatoes. Seems that I like this shirt a little too much Edward is on the computer, Eliza is next to Eddie, and Mark is at the back. Elijah is the one in green. Reading Adam to sleep. The Spice Festival was being held in San Myshuno, so Nicole invited Eliza along. Sadly, it was raining. She bumped into Elijah. Behind her is the Spicy Curry Challenge, but she did not partake. It wasn't the best of trips, given that she was soaking wet, hungry and exhausted. I directed her to go to bed. But NOPE she autonomously stopped the action and... It's go time!! Eliza opts for a home birth this time around. And.... it's a BOY! This is Benjamin. Three guesses as to what the name theme will be...
From the beginning of my pregnancy I wanted a home birth in water. I knew my son was going to be my last child, and I truly wanted that experience. Until I hit 34 weeks. March 23rd I called my primary physician & told her something didn't feel right. I had a ton of pain in my abdomen and my baby wasn't moving much. She referred me to the only OB practice in the area that takes my insurance & they basically told me "pregnancy sucks, you're fine, get over it." The weekend passes and I feel him moving less and less, but I was starting to get labor pains. I called the hospital near me & they told me 34 weeks was too early and despite my concerns, they would stop my labor and send me home. Monday the 27th I was in labor and worried about my son. My mom took me to a different hospital to get a second opinion. They did an ultrasound and hooked myself and my son to the monitors, the on call OB determined he needed to come out because his placenta had begun to die, and he wasn't getting enough nutrients, something the OB I was referred to could've caught if they had listened to my concerns instead of brushing me off. I starten on pitocin and walked & bounced on the birth ball. 6 AM on March 28th I begged for an epidural. My first birth had been 12 hours of labor, 20 minutes of pushing, and medication free. I had wanted to do that again, but at this point after laboring 48+ hours on my own, my body was worn out. I was shaking uncontrolably and crying. After they placed it, my water broke and I knew things were going to go quickly from there. I texted my husband telling him the baby was coming within the next few hours & to try and make it. I napped off and on thanks to the epidural until I felt intense pressure and realized it was time to push. After two pushes and 5 minutes, Woodrow-James Digger Godwin made his way into this world at 11:43 AM. He weighed 5lb10Oz & was 18.5 inches long. He was placed on my chest for a moment, and then once we realized he was wheezing and struggling to breathe, he was whisked off to NICU. My mom followed him while the nurses stitched me up. I texted my husband again "baby is here but he's in NICU" It was 4 days before I could hold him & 7 before he came home. He's now 5 weeks old & finally putting on weight and has adapted to life outside the womb very well.
rikkitikkitavi posted a topic in Wide World of SnarkThe LA Times has a story about a woman who hid her pregnancy from everyone, eventually giving birth to a baby in secret. The baby is supposed to have died because she didn't feed it; the woman then supposedly hid the body in a laundry basket at the school where she was working. What makes this story particularly interesting to us FJ-ers is that the school in question is a "Christian boarding school for troubled teens." Here's the story: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2 ... death.html. The Christian reform school is called Julian Youth Academy in Shasta county, California. Has anyone heard of this place? I wonder if the woman herself had been a student there once and was then hired to work there. Based on what I've read here and elsewhere, I think it's a fairly common practice for Christian reform schools to hire their own "reformed" graduates. In any case, I can't help but wonder if at least some of her behavior is the result of being enmeshed in Christian fundamentalist culture (the school definitely sounds fundie from the descriptions I could find online from "survivors").
