Birthing for Jesus: Upcoming Babies 13

Recommended Posts

Well, thank goodness Adam was there with google and God to guide the pregnancy. Now I'm wondering why I bothered with all that school, exams and decades of work to learn how to manage patient care when all I had to do was pray and google. Silly me.

Oh my Lord Adam Waller sounds like a bundle of nerves. Going through a twin pregnancy and having to support your husband through his increasing anxieties must have been awful for Valerie.

Also Adam's extensive research into all things conception and birth related appeared to have skipped the bit were identical twins have to be same sex (apart from 2 documented cases I think). Why were they thinking of names for a boy/girl combination?!

Omg that’s something else. He sounds like he was the one getting the prenatal care! He’s setting up her appointments and crap? I set all my appointments, told my husband where to meet me if he wanted to or could and the doctors told me what was going on... It’s like he was taking a child to the doctors! Ew!

I noticed that too. When I first read it I thought Valerie wrote it, I realized it was him when he wrote her name.

Mr. Waller is a pompus jerk. He is apparently the new God and he knows all and everything is done especially for him. 

I feel incredibly sorry for his wife & children. How will the truly know who to worship? God or their self declared master/god?

He makes Valerie sound like nothing more than a uterus with the words "Trust the Lord" printed on it.

THIS!  Certainly sounds like Valerie is the more calm and flexible party in their marriage.  I'm guessing Adam , who I think is an IT guy for IBLP, is very precise and detailed by nature with a streak of anxiety just for good measure. Good for the type of job he holds but his fundamentalist conditioning did not serve him well when placed in unfamiliar territory.  He doubtless thought he was supposed to "lead" his wife in something he had  little control over. So you get this almost obsessive concern for every little detail and worst case scenario.  Adam had to relinquish control to others and it really threw him.

ITA.  Sounds to me like he was trying to engineer the situation as best he could, but there were too many variables outside his control for comfort.  Then the classic fundie plug for the Lord's involvement.  I wonder if he knows that folate (vs. folic acid) is available in OTC supplement form.

He seems much more eloquent than his fabulous brother.  Bonus points for no references to "fun" in his post.

Ruth Wissmann Bourlier is answering family questions in her IG story. She says there are 16 grandchildren including the ones on the way. I only count 15 with Rachel and Abi's pregnancies. Who's #16? I don't think it's Rachel's miscarriage, or Kori's, since they themselves don't include them in the count.

I count only 15 as well. I guess that means someone’s pregnant. I think it was previously posted here that Ruth had hinted at another pregnancy but she hasn’t confirmed anything.

I’m also guessing it’s Ruth. I don’t think it’s Kori since it took 5 years to get pregnant with Wyatt. Michelle just had a baby. Beth had a baby not too long ago too. Ruth’s first two are close in age so it wouldn’t shock me if she’s pregnant again already.

It is Ruth. I posted the other week that she did an instagram post with hashtags such as #bunintheoven. I expect she'll announce soon.

I saw the hashtag, but I noticed she put it in a post that was directed to people who have had a baby/are pregnant. She used a lot of hashtags so I think it could also be a way for her to attract those types of followers, and it may not be referring to her. But, she did get pregnant really fast after her first so it also wouldn’t be surprising at all if it was about her

You know,A weird  thought occurs. It must be very confusing for very small boys like Adam Waller’s son in Christian Fundamentalist families to watch daddy tell mommy what to do, make all the important decisions, be obeyed and because a boy adores his daddy  and wants to be just like daddy  he tells his mother his mom she is just a girl and can’t tell him what to do. He then gets Spanked for disrespect. Though I suppose he practices his budding controlling patriarchal instincts on his sisters who are also learning to submit from their Mothers who always answer meekly and. sweetly.

Easily the best named Duggar-Seewald so far, but the competition wasn't too tough, anyway.

Jessa has improved her name choices with each baby. Spurgeon: WTF, Henry: nice, Ivy: I like this.

I'm pretty sure Spurgeon was Ben's choice. Maybe he learned his lesson. 

I really hope Spurgeon decides to go by Elliot one day. Such a way, way better name.

There isn’t  an active wissmann thread so I thought I would just post it here. I just realized that Beth Wissmann Beasley named her 4 children every other letter in the alphabet. And now I’m wondering if she will keep it up. 

She has:

1) Arianna

2) Caden

3) Everett

4) Gemma 

Will her next child be Isaac or Isabella? We shall see. I want to add that she hasn’t announced a pregnancy but she probably will in the next year.

Bethany has nearly perfect 21-22 month spacing between her babies so far. Gemma was born September 2018 so I don't think there will be a new Beasley until June/July 2020. Probable late 2019 announcement though, you're right! 

(If that's her naming theme, I would actually love it.)

Actually there were 2 years and 10 months between her second and third (feb 2014 - Dec 2016).  But she does have a tendency to get pregnant around her kids’ birthdays

Sorry if this is dumb but I read I on the family blog that Mathias Wissman was expecting a baby with his wife  in March. What are the particulars of that baby?

      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.
