Could be a regional thing but I was part of a bachlorette party this summer and I was nothing more then a wedding guest. As the bride's last fling as a single woman I think, well here at least, there are a lot of female friends invited. That's the way that we do it. I have no idea about Dan's fiancee and how they do things.

It's Schrodinger's Uterus! A Duggar (or any fundy really) can be considered to be both pregnant and not pregnant simultaneously until a pregnancy is actually announced.

I have 3 cats.  The third was unplanned, but she is wonderfully sweet and a blessing to our home.  I always thought 3 was too many cats, but I am glad I trusted God with my clowder size.  Even though

I have three shirts right now: One says "Bun in the Oven" Another says "I'm Hungry" up top and "Me Too" on the bump And the third, and most appropriate, says "Pregasaurus Rex" with a pr

I don't think it's necessarily regional, just the preference of the bride in most cases

I only had 2 bridesmaids. I didn't have a traditional bachelorette party though as that's just not "my thing." But I did go out for drinks with my female cousins, my sister, mom, and aunts. Most people I know invite numerous female friends and relatives but only have a few bridesmaids (4 seems to be the average amount.)

Why is the name still in Central America? They are back presumably until both weddings are over.  I don't think I can be clever enough at 2am with heavy menstrual cramps and allergy itching ears to come up with any better suggestions, plus it's probably too late anyway. Lol.

Supposedly they are back in Arkansas until the end of the year. I think that's what I remember reading.

Sympathizing on allergy ears! The worst!!

Might I offer a few thread name suggestions:

Human error. :) I'd momentarily successfully scrubbed the Duggars from my brain (yay for me!), and had trouble recalling where the Dillards are. If I ever remember how I managed to scrub the Duggars, I'll announce the secret on FJ! Or sell it to the highest bidder...:pb_biggrin:

ETA @nastyhobbitses Thank you for suggesting new names!

No pregnancy? She must be suffering. Maybe something went wrong with the c-section. I don't see her preventing. Well, better for Izzy, he's having a mom full time.

Jill's not pregnant yet but I think only time will tell. Maybe she's going to announce later this time too to give us more speculation. Instead of dragging it out like with Izzy.

I'm wondering if the area they were in was on the high risk list for Zika?  If that's the case, I'm very happy to see them being careful about conceiving until the risk level for her is diminished.

A suggestion for the next title; Making Cinteral 'Murka white again.  They don't know it never was white, so it's ok.

I really think they are following the warnings of Zika, Jill had to have seen several Zika babies while there and that should scare her to think that she could have one of these children. While she is dumb enough to think that God might protect her because modesty and golden child BS, Derrick has to know from his college classes that this isn't something you can just pray away.  At least I'd like to think someone with a college degree a wife and child would have enough brains to know that.

Most Central American countries have European minorities who tend to hold most of the power, wealth, and land. In El Salvador, for example, the white population accounts for about 12.7 percent of the population:

https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/es.html

However, from the perspective of the Dillards, Central Americans of European descent are "the wrong kind of whites" since they generally aren't Baptists and don't "speak 'Murican."

We can only hope and pray this is the case. While I'm happy for someone excited about a wanted pregnancy, they told the world before the pee stick was dry. They acted like they were the first couple to ever have a baby, and by the time she was six months along it seemed like she had been pregnant with an elephant for 18 months. As much as I find Jessa nauseating, at least she and Bin had the good sense to announce at the three month mark.

not only that - they keep some things private - not the sex - but whether she was sick or whatever... who can forget that psa with Jill and Derick going on and on about cold food.

I seriously doubt that Jill saw many or any babies with microcephaly while in Ebil Cintril Murica. She pretty much confirmed that she was a shut in, so unless families were bringing their affected babies to Jill's Bible study classes, her exposure to vast numbers of natives would have been quite limited. Further, unless the microcephaly was a severe case, I doubt Jill (or many) people would be able to make the DX and connection to Zika by a quick glance. I don't think Jill was ever using her purported midwifery skills while south of the border.

Did the Dillys have some sort of crisis last winter? Didn't JB and M run down to CA? I always thought Jill might have had a miscarriage and now is having a bit of trouble achieving a pregnancy. Just my guess.

And those pictures in the same place every single week. She ballooned and that was it. She just stayed huge the whole time. Jeez my head hurts just thinking about it.

To be fair, part of why it seemed to last so long was because Izzy came so late. I think he was due March 25th and didn't arrive until April 6th - so that's an extra twelve or so days. And the fact that they posted a ton of photos and updates and it was covered in the media and on the show. Little bit of overkill.

And it's tough trying to remember, but I'm pretty sure the public announcement in People happened when they were around 8 or 9 weeks along. Which really isn't that unreasonable.

If that's the case then they do have some sympathy from me. It's limited because of their shit choices and beliefs, but I would sympathize a bit.

I have trouble believing that might be the case though. I always feel like they'd publicly announce any loss because it was still a life to them. Maybe I'm wrong and they would choose to mourn privately though. Regardless, every couple should handle that type of loss the way they feel is best for them.

I know, right? The further along the pregnancy went, the more obnoxious she became - in fact, my username comes from her high level of humility during that time. I felt bad for her at a certain point, though - the last four weeks or so of that pregnancy she looked miserable.

      Anyone know how to disguise a webcam?
      I have to start looking for a real job now that I'm vaccinated and the end of the pandemic is a possibility, and that will likely mean Zoom. With video. I'm camera-phobic (I'm fine taking pictures, but I cannot have one pointed at me). I just tried looking for webcams on Amazon and basically had a panic attack and breakdown just looking at pictures of those evil things. Actually having one pointed at me, recording and transmitting . . . no. I can't. It's not nervousness. It's not mere camera shyness. It's a true phobia, though there is apparently no official name for it.
      I have avoided Zoom and its ilk so far (my family was all into Zoom meetings this time last year, but I started with audio-only, then said no entirely), but it's all the rage and likely will be for a long time, if not forever. So I'll need to suck it up and get a webcam. Maybe if it's covered up like a nannycam I can force myself to use it without having a total breakdown. It also needs to be easy to disconnect and shove in a drawer because I can't have one where I can see it, even shut off, unplugged, and covered.
      So . . . any suggestions for webcam disguises? One already non-camera-looking would be best, but an appropriate cover could work. The tricky part is that the lens must be covered as much as possible. Can I use an actual nannycam for this?
      Please do not suggest "therapy" for my phobia. That is not an option for many reasons, which I will not get into here.

      The jury in the Chauvin (George Floyd) trial is sequestered in deliberations as of today. I live in Minneapolis now and the edge in the city is palpable, especially after another police shooting here LAST WEEK. Went to our nearby Target today (the one that was destroyed last summer) and the National Guard is already in the parking lot. If the verdict is not guilty or manslaughter...it's gonna be crazy.

      I thought you were never supposed to forget how to ride a bike! My brain remembers, but my body? Not so much. I think I'm going to go to the cemetery to practice - long flat smooth roads with very few people. I'll wave at grandma and grandpa like I used to do when we rode bikes around and around at their house.

      A few weeks ago, I was telling @HerNameIsBuffy about the generously sized single carrot I received from Imperfect Foods. Well, today I got two more monsters in my box. I ordered a pound of carrots and a pound of sweet potatoes, and this is what they gave me:

      At its widest point, the sweet potato is nine inches in diameter, while the carrot tops out at seven and three-quarter inches. I kinda feel bad about my plans to eat them, as these two are definitely large enough to pursue careers in the adult film industry.

      Fuck. Both of my interns are in quarantine. One is positive, the other is a close contact (her exposure was from her roommate, not the other intern). I know six other people who are or were sick within the last month and at least four other people who've had to quarantine after close contact. Things were supposed to be getting better. 😷
