John David & Abbie 8: Schrodinger No More, Baby Passenger Onboard

If Abbie is due in Jan/Feb, that could explain why JD went to the Query wedding solo...I had Baby at the end of Jan and I spent most of the previous Jun feeling like crap. 🤢

If, big if, the marinated cucumber is right and Jb really said that there is someone due in January, it could be that Jing is due in December and Abbie is due in January...I guess we will know better kn a couple of weeks. 

A friend of mine just announced she is expecting and due in January, she's not quite into her 2nd trimester yet,  so if Abbie or Jinger are due in Jan it might e too early for them to announce.

I was due with my daughter on January 14th and we announced publicly right before the Fourth of July when I was exactly 12 weeks. It’s certainly possible any of the remaining married Duggars (who are not Benessa) could be pregnant  and due in January. If anyone is pregnant and hasn’t said anything then it’s likely either because of it being too early or because Mary just died or for any other number of reasons. Anyone else pregnant will announce eventually.

She could also not be 100% sure of all the due dates or be thinking of late November as early winter. If they are pregnant we'll hear soon enough. If they arent they probably will be soon

In regard to Jinger though; I thought she said she wanted to wait a year or two before trying for baby Vuolo #2. Plus with the move to LA, I really don't think that she will be wanting to get pregnant at the moment. I don't think she seems as keen to have another kid as the others and seems to be enjoying her time with Felicity.

Wanting to wait is one thing, but some times the best laid plans go tits up. Especially if  you aren't using birth control. IF she's pregnant it may have been an OPPS, and they are anti choice so, this is what they mean by "leaving it up to God". They wanted one thing, God wanted something else.

I’d venture to guess they are doing a little NFP.  Jeremy doesn’t seem like the type to want 19 kids.  It’s hard to keep up with his book and her coffee habit while keeping the insta outfits on point with that many kids.

Admittedly I'm in Canada so it gets cooler quicker. But I could consider mid-late Nov as winter.

October is definitely fall, December is definitely winter. November feels like an up for grabs shoulder month.

Just looked at this and oops, too late to edit. I meant that I told people in August. By December my belly would be making it's own announcement 😂.

Based off science, winter (in the Northern hemisphere) actually doesn’t begin until shortly before Christmas. It might feel like winter before then, but technically speaking November and most of December are still in the Fall. So the Duggars who have announced pregnancies at the moment - Amy, Kendra, Joy, Lauren, and Anna - are all due in the Fall. Any Duggar who might potentially be due between December 21 and March 19 would be due in the Winter.

I just determine seasons by month. In my opinion all the pregnant Duggars are due in winter.

Spring - February, March, April, Early May

Summer - Late May, June, July, August

Autumn - September, Early October

Winter - Late October, November, December, January

Not to belabor the point, but scientifically speaking that’s inaccurate. Seasons are determined by the tilt of the Earth’s axis. The current crop of pregnant Duggars, therefore, are all due in the Fall - which does not end until late December - according to science.

Science is one thing, but colloquialism is another.

I would venture a guess that most people who live in temperate or cooler climates consider December to be winter.

I've been in Sydneey and Adelaide in December and it was so bizarre to spend Christmas there. But I love the heat so I didn't mind.

I’m about five hours north of the Duggar’s, so we get way way more cold weather and snow, but even so, there is absolutely no way anyone around here would call November winter. I can’t really imagine anyone at all saying winter starts before thanksgiving. Sure it might be cold, but it gets SO much colder. 

I know the 21st’s mark the seasons each quarter, but around here people would probably go with...

winter  - dec, Jan, feb, mar (we optimistically might call March spring)

spring - apr, May

summer - June, July, Aug, sept

fall - oct, nov

Jessa did just have a baby and maybe she isn’t at 100% for thinking through her words. But also, I’m pretty sure the data is good for someone in the family knowing they are expecting and not having announced. I bet we will find out over the next few weeks.

adding: also, there are really two official definitions of the seasons, meteorological and astronomical: https://www.ncei.noaa.gov/news/meteorological-versus-astronomical-seasons

To me, winter starts in December. I tend to think of winter from December-February, though technically it's from the Winter Solstice to the Vernal Equinox. Though where I'm from, it is not unusual for it to feel like winter part way into the fall and part way into the spring (especially this year; it was brutal). I certainly wouldn't consider November, even late November, as winter. I would assume Jessa either just made a mistake (which would be perfectly reasonable considering she's dealing with a newborn and the loss of her grandma) or that there is a couple pregnant who is due in the winter who hasn't announced yet (which is totally plausible since Abbie and Jill are due to announce pregnancies and it wouldn't be unexpected if Jinger announced either). In the next couple months, I'm sure we will hear if there is a couple who is due during the winter.

As someone who absolutely can’t stand the cold, I think of winter as Nov-Feb, so I’m very surprised others are equally adamant that November and February aren’t winter! Except you Australians, of course.  😉

Sweden here. Ignoring all actual definitions I would say:

Winter: Mid November-Mid March

Spring: Mid March-May

Summer: June-August

Autumn: September-Mid November

Or it’s winter from the first snow until the melting has truly started and summer while you can swim in the lake. Spring and autumn inbetween. Personal definition since I know many people that pretty much never thinks it warm enough to swim in the lake and some that jump in as soon as the ice melts, or even before. :cold:

Living in Belgium I like to tell newcomers to abandon all idea of "seasons". A new colleague arrived from Spain and asked me when spring would start. I just smiled at him mildly and told him that nobody can tell, and he should simply take it one day at a time.

Generally an entire year worth of seasons can (and will) occur in one day. This means that there is always hope: a day can start off feeling like winter and end up like a hot summer's day. However, it also means that there is always this sense of doom that no hoped for weather will last long enough for you to complete whatever activity you had planned.

There's also not enough sun. I once checked and apparently Belgium gets less sun than Southern Sweden. It can be unbearably warm, but the sky will be grey. I spent some years growing up in Israel and Florida, and was always in the shade, but since I moved to Belgium, you'll find me soaking up the sun whenever possible.

Still, I'd say the following:

Spring: March, April, May (usually April is surprisingly nice, and there can be some really hot days in May)

Summer: June, July, August (with at least 1 heatwave in July or August)

Autumn: September, October, November (September is often rainy, but November can be surprisingly nice)

Winter: December, January, February (you better go somewhere sunny in January or you'll develop Vitamin D deficiency and seasonal depression by early February)

Even if no one else is pregnant yet I think it's safe for Jessa to assume SOMEONE will have a baby this winter 😂

      I am beyond angry at Mr. Briefly's mother. My daughter posted a comment on her own facebook page that discussed parellels between nazi Germany and what is happening today as far as immigrants, detention camps, etc. My MIL left one of the rudest, meanest things I have ever seen. She told me daughter not to post things like that on her own page, she said horrible things. I just posed a long comment to my MIL, and told her that she has destroyed her relationship with her granddaughter and probably any hope of one in the future. My daughter is so hurt, and she is angry. And so am I. I try to be forgiving, but I'm not really inclined to forgive this one. Maybe I will be, but my daughter probably won't ever forgive her for this one. OK, rant over - and thank you for listening.

      Did another photo shoot this morning (strictly trade for prints, because it's a fun hobby), this one for Paul McCartney/Another Day.  one of those incredibly pretty little songs that hides just devastating lyrics behind beautiful harmony:  As she posts another letter to the sound of five People gather 'round her and she finds it hard to stay alive It's just another day.  There's a furniture shop near where I live that sells second hand and "unique" furniture/decor.  They had a neat little vanity someone built out of a Singer sewing machine table so we did the photos there, trying to convey the world weariness of the lyrics in a single photo.  It felt good.  We'll see how the prints turn out.
      It always surprises me how well Neptune and I work in these kinds of situations.  We'd had one conversation about this shoot, ten days or a couple weeks ago.  A few key words, couple props that he specifically wanted, not much else.  We walked into the building and started setting up without needing to really talk very much.  Just feels easy and in sync in a really comfortable way.

      Has anybody else had issues with the latest Windows update?  Windows 10 has screwed up a lot of computers, mine included. Apparently,.Microsoft knew that it was going to cause problems and released it anyway. Now they talk like they are working on a problem.  OK, so I guess they are going to pay for the repairs to my laptop since I had to take it in to be fixed?  Due to their stupidity in releasing a known problem and not having a patch ready, but still they should not have released it knowing it was going to do this!!

      Peanut likes sitting on her hidey-house! She’s eating a bit of honeydew melon which the pigs have never had before (although they have had watermelon). 

      There is still a bit of an abscess left; it’s reduced a bit in size but not completely. Our nearest vet clinic is mainly cat/dog related although the woman we’ve been seeing does have an interest/knowledge about small animals. We’re going to contact another clinic who are an exotics centre; our vet said that she could do a slightly more invasive procedure but that it’d be best if we took Peanut to a specialist place. 
      The vet also said today that we can reunite her with Cinnamon and Grace; there was no evidence of a bite mark but we’ll still have to be careful because of where the abscess is. The main reason we kept her separate was so she could recover post-sedation when the drainage site needed to properly heal. 
      I’m not worried about her health-wise in any major sense, but it’ll be a relief when it’s dealt with!

      Received news (from my dermatologist) that I tested positive for ANA, which indicates I have some type of auto-immune problem. But I can't see a rheumatologist until my primary care refers me, and I don't have an appointment with primary care until the 28th. And who knows how long it's going to take me to get into a specialist. So now I just get to sit around thinking about what's potentially wrong with me and being scared shitless about it.

      The substitute pastor dislikes me and my candor and forthrightness. As he was giving pre-worship announcements, I needed to blow my nose. Did it so quietly! — but he interrupted himself with “gesundheit!” — and I felt embarrassed and in retaliation rolled my eyes or scowled every time he looked my way during sermon. Also held subsequent nose-clearings for when HE spoke during service. It felt snarky--right at first, now I’m just mad that these patriarchal bozos foul up the peace of music and hymns and prayers with their attitudes and actions. Thanks to FJ for providing this little forum-ette. I feel better for venting.
