Brooklyn.....Lakelyn..... all the same I guess. What’s next? Creeklyn? Pondlyn? Sealyn?

I am happy it is not very popular here in the Netherlands because it is high on my list (and I just found out I am pregnant 🥰)

Not Karlotte?

I’m not exactly sure if they’re fundie or not. I know Rachael and her fam aren’t skirts only, but she does have 5 almost 6 kids and homeschools. It also seems like they now live in Arkansas (before they lived in Alabama where her mom lives) since they’re in lots of Joy and Austin’s YouTube videos. They seem very close to her father’s side of the fam which might mean that their beliefs aren’t much different. 

Austin’s brother is more private but when his wife had a public fb it became known that he has 5 kids as well.

Based on Gideon Forsyth’s birthday video on YouTube, Rachael Forsyth Tunstill definitely looks like she’s pregnant with baby #6.

I tried to watch that. It had to be one of stupidest ideas.  They appeared to be trying to eat the contents of a can to see what was at the bottom.

So these days for gender reveals, you can risk either blowing yourself up or getting food poisoning...whatever happened to cutting a cake???

Over on the Bradrick thread, a photo was posted of Kelly Brown Bradrick Ziegler's sister Claudia's wedding, and it shows her and new hubby with a baby. Maybe 12 months old? So she had the six kids really quickly with BRADICK! (they're all in the photo) and now another with Ziegler.

It also seems to show that neither David & Monica Brown or Blair (Brown) & Taylor Tsantles have any more kids.

Anyone have any more info?

I wonder what this one is called. Triumph, Loyal, Courage... just realised how close 'Triumph' is to 'Trump' - surprised no one has called their son that.

Surely even fundies know someone who knows someone who can tell them about Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, right? "That's a nice giant hairbow...for me to poop on!"

re:   Dama Gradinariu

This one worries me. She had a c section with her last delivery in June 2020 and I suspect she had a c section with the triplets who were born 2019. That does not give her much time to heal -not to mention that I suspect she has not had a moments rest from childcare in general. She's one of the fundies who I fear might have an obstetric disaster if she does not take care of her health.

Dama Gradinariu is having a boy. She's 20 weeks pregnant, so due date is mid July... But with all her kids and her  tiredness.........   https://www.instagram.com/thegradfam/?hl=en 

I just looked at her Insta - that poor woman look so exhausted! But she is a baby making machine, crazy! And the spacing of her kids makes me cringe, they must have gone back to sweet fellowship pretty much right out of the delivery room

She did have an emergency c-section with the triplets. And she has mentioned that the way they did that c-section (vertical) is the reason she must have all c-sections now.

She's had a midline/classical c-section?! Those are really only a last resort if they can't get the baby out or if it's early gestation (which I suppose could both apply for triplets). Those are much more prone to complication later on (like rupture) and definitely require repeat sections. I wouldn't want to be 22, having a 5th pregnancy in as many years, with no prospect of this slowing down with a midline section scar. I wouldn't want my patients to be facing that either. I actually had a patient once who had had both transverse and midline sections and had suddenly found herself pregnant with a 6th. She was terrified and she hadn't had them back to back, her oldest was 20 ish. I was worried for her.

She's 23 then. She exactly one year older than Jedidiah and Jeremiah Duggar.

I know nothing about this poor woman but it sounds like a dangerous situation that could leave 6 or 7 kids without a mother :( I kind of get wanting more kids even when there’s high risks, but waiting barely a year after a triplet pregnancy and vertical c-section is a whole other level of ill-advised.

I didn't know they were fundie....I must admit to a bit of rabbit-holing last week with the Grads (just too easy on a slow day working from home!) and watched one of their videos. Thought they were just trying to make money off their social media presence.

Though they are clearly going for as many kids as they can.

And I got a bit too involved with multiple birth probability...

Did you know the chance of having twins again if you already have a set (fraternal) are 1 in 12? So Michelle Duggar was spot on the odds! And that means Courtney Rogers and Dorothy Sanders have the same odds, though they probably won't have the number of pregnancies to bear it out.

Also: Jana has a 1 in 17 chance of twins, and all her sisters (and Abbie Duggar) have a 1 in 60 chance. 

For the general population, the chance of twins is 1 in 285. Luckily the 'twin gene' can't be expressed by males, so Kendra Duggar doesn't have an increased chance (though their daughters may). But you just know she would be the 1 in 285!

When I was pregnant, I was so glad twins didn’t run in my family. I only wanted singletons and that’s what I got.

Not a thread but she was discussed in this topic back in December when she announced her 7th pregnancy. They're Romanian Orthodox. And I believe they conceived the triplets without any fertility treatment which is incredibly rare!

When my mum was pregnant with me, Triplet 1 and Triplet 2 she was quoted the odds of triplets’ natural conception as being 1/10,000! She hadn’t had any fertility treatment and what’s more, there wasn’t any history of multiples on either side of the family either (other than I think one of my grandad’s siblings had had a twin which died in utero).

I just wish I could have inherited my mother’s fertility (I’m going through IVF treatment at the moment) but that’s another topic! I’d be really happy to have twins or higher order multiples, as long as it didn’t affect the babies’ health in the womb.

      I survived ... Ish. I'm all moved again, another 1500 miles from where the cats and I were living before. I'm in the new apartment, and kitties are adjusting well. I've only cried 6 times since Saturday! #progress.
      By the way, sorry about the summer logo swap taking its sweet time. Real life was a little too much and it got forgotten.

      A happy summer solstice to all northern hemisphere FJers! And a happy winter solstice to all southern hemisphere FJers! (I know it's already Monday is Australia, so I'm late for most of you.)

      ETA--Oh! I just checked, and the winter solstice is at 1:31 PM on Monday, June 21 in Eastern Australia Time. So, for once the time zones worked in my favor. I'm not late!

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.
