Courtney posted her ultra sound pick yesterday evening. She says he's just over 9 weeks and due between the youngest twos' birthdays. If she's 9 weeks and a day, that puts her due June 5th. 9 weeks and 2 days, would be June 4th, and 9 weeks and 3 days would be June 3rd. 

I'm kind of hoping she goes over, so that the new baby is born after her last baby's birthday. At least give the poor thing a year to be the youngest.

I think her last was the only one to make it to the due date. #9 was born June 10, and #8 was born on May 10. If she carries to term, it would be right on top of Cadie's birthday, but "between the two girls" sounds more like late May. Based on her track record, that very well could happen.

Courtney's uterus is the real MVP.

Reasonably often I'm called on to do an ultrasound to measure c -section scar thickness in the 3rd trimester. I always think of the fundies we see who have back to back babies and VBAC's when I'm doing these sorts of scans. Although I've done a lot of scans, I am always a bit taken aback by just how thin the scar gets - we are talking a few millimetres.

Courtney's uterus must be constantly flaccid. Her bump is far bigger than average (for lack of a better word; I know all bodies are different) for 9 weeks. I seriously thought she was 4 months already. Which, at the time she announced, I know couldn't be right since that was the same age as the baby. But, since this is Courtney and her rutting husband, nothing is out of the question.

I can't hear flaccid without thinking of a penis. Sorry for the mental image 😁.

I'll be that annoying person and say that a flaccid uterus wouldn't really affect the bump size. It has to do with how stretched out her ab muscles are. Which in her case, by having a baby every 10 months or whatnot, those muscles would never have time to fuse back to their normal state. Hurts my belly just to think about it.

Also, she has barely had any sex in her life that has not resulted in babies, or not been while she’s pregnant. I suppose that’s true of some other fundy women..but it strikes me very much with her.  Weird.

Sue Radford had her baby, Bonnie Raye. I like the name Bonnie. It’s probably not a name I’d give my child, but it’s nice all the same. Birth was on Tuesday.

Every single one of their girls' names end in an "ee" sound. It's so weird.

It's a British trend, especially in the past 20 years or so but it has always been more prevalent, especially for feminine names, than the US. Nicknames as full names have particularly caught on. It's why names like Sophie, Poppy, Phoebe, Lily, Evie, Ruby, Chloe  Emily, Charlie (boy), Alfie, Harry have been in the top 10 names in the UK since about 2014 or 15.

And you'll get a higher frequency of names like these have all made the top 100 in the UK and Wales in the period of 2015-2018 Archie, Freddie, Daisy, Henry, LillyMillie, Rosie, Ellie, Zoe, the variants of Darcie and Darcey and Darcy for females, Nancy, Bonnie at #95 in 2017 and jumping 19 rank spaces in one year, Lottie, Heidi, Mollie and Molly, Bethany, Amy, Hollie and Holly, Katie, Gracie, Lexi, Amelie, Ivy, Maisie, Lacey, Felicity, Lucy, Riley, Finley, Zachary, Stanley, Toby, Harley, Frankie (masculine), Ollie Theo, Tommy (masculine), Teddy, Bobby, Ronnie, Sonny, Reggie, Rory, Joey, Louie, Harvey, Albie, 

For example, the name Theodore is #59 in 2014 in the UK but Theo was #37. Freddie is far more popular as a full name than Frederick and it's the same with the youngest generation of Charlie vs Charles or Alfie vs Alfred.

This isn't exhaustive but I'm tired...Bonnie isn't a weird choice for them. Kind of boring and predictable really but it's a good name and it will hold that girl in good stead, I'm sure :)

I’ve definitely noticed that in the UK. In the US, we like a lot of those names as nicknames. Sophia and Charles are popular, but then their informal nick name is usually Sophie and Charlie. I admit that I’m the same way. My children have formal names and then they have their nick names. If I met an Alfie in the US, I would assume his name is Alfred. But I wouldn’t expect that to be so in the UK since I know the trend.

I totally get the popularity of those names, but ALL of their daughters?

My younger son is like that. His name is James, but we call him Jaime. My older son was going to have a nickname (Will) but we ended up just calling him by his formal name (William). I come from a family where formal names are considered important and then most have nicknames.

Almost everyone has a nick name in my extended family. Some of them come from their actual names (Johnny for John) while others got nick names from their personality quirks. My husband had such a hard time figuring out who was who at big family gatherings because of all the weird nick names.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
