Seewalds 22 - Funerals and Embryo Cake


Recommended Posts

Last thread here:

One of the few times (when I've done a thread, at least) that the title has absolutely nothing to do with the fundies we're supposedly talking about :P . Using the Seewald thread to talk about Catholicism and weird cake sounds like a fine plan to me!

Jessa's got a speaking engagement coming up in June, I'm assuming Ben is still working for Jim Bob, and Spurgeon and Henry are a cute toddler and baby. I haven't been on FJ in a week, so I'm sure I've missed something, but here's another thread about the Seewalds.

Now we're criticizing the table manners of 1-year-olds? Mmmkay.

I almost feel that letter was more for us than for Ben. However, I will admit that it was probably the most personalized, genuine piece of writing we've seen from any Duggar. 

I actually don't think we need to criticize Jessa and Ben for allowing their toddler to drink out of a little salsa dish in a restaurant. But maybe that's just me.

:pb_lol: I was wondering what I missed. Just nothing and we still get our awesome thread drift.

It's May first, so I guess mentioning Jessa's end of June working detail is relevant...these people are so lazy and so boring.

I was also wondering who died. I was hoping it was JB....just kidding. Although, I think all of their lives would be better with that douche out of the picture, and since there is zero chance he'll walk away...

WhatWouldJohnCrichtonDo?

I'm going to continue to think of that um, dessert thing as a "conception cake", because "embryo cake" reminds me of recipes that use placenta. Excuse me for a bit.

Jonathan is 23? Nurie is 18. That would work.

Jonathan is an honorary Duggar. Jill would be thrilled.

I cannot even imagine swallowing part of a human body, even if it had been attached to me.

Where did I read or  hear about women who keep the placenta and then have it made in to capsules as a supplement.  (GAG!)


Here, I looked it up so you don't have to

Here I was thinking that Bin was holding funerals for aborted babies or something and at the reception after there was embryo cake. With or without actual human placenta.

I was totally insinuating that JB wouldn't allow an interracial marriage. I 100% could see him having a thing about that. A Hartono/Duggar courtship would've happened already. 

Imo of course.

I'll catch you up.  Josh is still completly revolting, JB is still a dick head, Michelle is still in la la land, Jill is still chugging the kool aid, Derrick is still a scum bag, and Josie is still walking on the counters

I've known more than one mom who did the placenta capsule thing, but the only one who shared they "why" (and admitted she didn't know if it would work or not), but she had been told it would help with post partum depression (which she had the first time around).

With auto immune issues, I considered it for health reasons (which it *supposedly* has).  But when I asked my OB about it, she tried hard to hide her smirk.  Told me to spend the money if I wanted to, but she had no scientific proof (back in 2014) that it would help with anything ~ so that's my take :]

Jessa comparing Spurgeon and Henry to her and Ben. I think that Henry definitely looks a lot like Ben. Although there is definitely some Duggar in there as well. We've always known who Spurgeon looks like.

That's so disgusting. I mean whatever floats your boat but...feeding it to your husband? That makes you a few cards short of a full deck in my book.

Spurge looks like he could be the son of "Million $ Listing: NYC" Fredrik Eklund to me. Kind of a cuter, less-green Grinchlet.

I heard a talk at GOLD Lactation about this time last year on placental encapsulation.  While other mammals may eat their placentas, this has never been the practice throughout human history in any society until some midwives about 30 or 40 years ago started promoting it.  It was more common for mothers to plant their placenta, but placenta is said to taste like liver.  Placental encapsulation is more recent and their is not much evidence of its effectiveness.  It may help with postpartum depression, but there is reason to be concerned about its possible negative impact on the milk supply.  Retained placenta is a proven cause of low milk supply.  Those hormones aren't supposed to be in the body in that amount and delivery of the placenta triggers a cascade of hormonal release that is supposed to occur postpartum.  At any rate,  placental encapsulation has just not been studied.

I never saw the placenta after my daughter was born, but the midwife asked if I'd like to see it after my son was born.  Even though I'm squeamish, it was kind of interesting to see this thing which had kept him alive for 9 months.  I felt no desire to eat it though ;)

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      I just made a lovely discovery! Type a colon, then a ) without any spaces. Then type a space. 
          
      I am ridiculously happy to discover this! (I also have a nagging feeling that I should have figured this out sooner...)

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.
