Okay so it looks like the Duggars and the Bates have both stalled at 19, what is the largest fundie family. And yes I mean delivered by one mom. Not one of these I delivered 3 kids and then adopted 23, not that I don't think adoption is not real (just don't want to start that debate).

Here's an article about a family in Ukraine, Leonora and Yanosh Nameni, with 21 kids. According to Wikipedia, they're Apostolic and don't practice birth control. The article above also mentions that they live on a farm and don't watch TV, which sounds pretty "fundie" to me by our informal standards.

Wow, Michelle and Jimbob have a long way to go :o

I bet theyre sooooo jealous of all these people who had more than 30! But honestly, I don't know how they remember all of their children's names and birthdays.

Susanna Wesley, nee Annesley was the 25th of 25 children. She went on the bear 19 children, nine of whom died as infants and one was smothered by a maid. Four of the infants who died were twins. I don't know if she had any twins that survived. Two of the children that survived were John and Charles, the founders of Methodism. She is often considered the Mother ofMethodism.

I grew up in a small country town in Australia (population about 2,500-3,000) and there was a family in the town which had 22 children. The husband died of a heart attack in his late fifties /early sixties and thereafter, there were no more children. As far as I remember, there was only one set of twins, and quite possibly, no television :lol:

My husband's best friend is one of 19; my brother in law is one of 17. No twins in either bunch. They are both New Zealanders as several families on that list seem to be!

there was that Russian lady who had like 64 kids

Some people believe that was false. It claims she has multiple sets of triplets, quads etc that survived long before NICU and medical interventions

When you think about it how is that even possible? When most women with mega families don't reach 20, that she would reach 60+??

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!
