I've noticed recently that Katie is wearing pants a lot more in videos/instagram stories. It used to be just sweatpants at home but today she has a story up of shopping with Travis for Christmas supplies, and she's wearing jeans! It gave me just a glimmer of hope that maybe Travis is going to branch out a little from his family rules, as strict as they may seem. 

Yes, I noticed when she was at Alyssa’s. At first I thought it was just while lounging around in some pajama bottoms (the pregnancy q&a vid)  but another one of the vids showed her arriving from the airport in pants and a blazer. Momma C is still skirts only so I find it curious and wonder if it will continue. Will Hayley be in pants too?

I don’t think I’ve yet spotted Kayla or Deven in pants yet. So it would be interesting if Katie is the first to break the Clark family rules. I think they already went against the family recommendation of waiting a year to get pregnant.

I dealt with infertility with my first and considered myself insanely lucky to get pregnant through IUI on the first cycle. Then with my second, we ran out of condoms and I just said hell with it. And after 4 months of no condoms I got pregnant. I was stunned because I assumed I would need IUI again for a second child. That’s probably why I’m so surprised when I see all these fundies getting pregnant so soon after marriage. 

Kind of the same story here. I often joke that the first kind took 4 years (to get and stay pregnant, 9x IUI, 2 miscarriages), the second child 4 weeks. 

My husband makes the joke that I have such cute and romantic ways to tell him that I am pregnant: with the first kid I gave him the test and said "well, here we go again", the second child I said "look! Look! What have we done? How?!" Looking kind of shocked.

Can Katie be on hormonal birth control with her clotting issues?

I'm not aware of Katie having clotting issues. It's very possible that she has the same problems as most of her older sisters, but as far as I know she doesn't have the issue.

Yes, the pregnancy for my second was a real shock. We couldn’t really believe it at first. I think unexplained fertility will be better explained in the future. I imagine I’ll be an old lady reading about why it took me so long to get pregnant the first time. It always bothered me there was no answer as to why it took so long.

Unfortunately she has the clotting issues, which she's spoken about several times.

She does. She has talked about it several times on her YouTube. They have gotten conflicting advice on how to deal with it and currently she is not taking Heperin. 

Alyssa (as far as we know) is the only adult Bates daughter not to have the clotting disorder.

Luckily, Katie chose to follow the advice of the high risk specialist.

According to Reddit Deven wore a pair of pants for riding a bicycle before - I don't have receipts though.

Let’s hope! I hate seeing long skirts on bikes. That’s just asking for it to get caught.

Katie and Travis have a video from the family trip to the Jersey Shore and while I can't find Decent in the video, every other woman in Travis's family is wearing a skirt (generally all knee length) while riding bikes.

The Clarks remind me of the Collingsworths. The females always wear skirts when they are out of the house. The only time they seem to wear pants is when they are wearing matching PJs on Christmas.

The Clark's remind me of my own extneded family and while I wear pants/jeans all the time, I have never worn them Infront of certain relatives. I actually had a surprise visit from a relative this summer and my husband laughed at how I quickly changed out of my yoga pants and into a sundress, but it has just been drilled into me from a young age and I suspect the Clark's are the same way. I will be surprised if we see Katie in pants around Travis's family.

Where my daughter to lives in So America, you have “house” clothes and outside the house clothes and the 2 are never the same. Same thing applies to shoes. My husband and I do not abide when we visit. I am not wearing long pants in 95 degrees and 95% humidity. It is not happening. I’ll wear a skirt or dress, but I’m not changing when I get home. Same with shoes; sandals, flip flops…inside or out. My husband rocks athletic wear. He’s so tall that in a country of shorter folks, he stands out no matter what. In America he is an average 6 footer, so not really that tall.

We live here in the States and we do both of those things; house clothes, inside/outside shoes. Literally the first thing I do when I get home is take off my shoes, thoroughly wash my hands, and then change into house clothes.

Personally I think it's gross why someone would want to bring in all of the germs and nastiness that occurs in public places into their home.

Same. We always take our shoes off at the door, and either put on slippers or go barefoot/socks. I have a basket of these or something like these: https://www.amazon.com/BERGMAN-KELLY-Slippers-Disposable-Comfort/dp/B0797N83RN/ by the door for guests as well. I also have some in our airbnb and a note to please take outside shoes off to protect the floors. 

When I come home I always take off my outerwear, hang it up, take off shoes, and then change my clothes. Having "house clothes" has two functions:  one, it prolongs the life of work garments. two, it's a physical separation between outside and the house. Certain clothes - jeans, heavier fabrics, etc, increase wear on upholstery as well. If we are having guests, I wear non-pajama clothes, but I tend to change if I leave the house and come back.

I’m in Canada, and the concept of wearing shoes indoors (especially shoes you wear outdoors), is so strange to me. I’ve never encountered anyone here who does that!

(Not saying it’s bad, just that it’s something I’ve always found intriguing when watching American TV)

I grew up in Phoenix. Everyone I knew wore shoes inside. It wasn't until I moved to Seattle that I was introduced to the concept of taking your shoes off upon entering the house. Now, I'm so used to it that I think it's gross when people wear shoes inside.

Same. No one wears shoes inside, but some people wear slippers/house shoes. 

I also change my clothes as soon as I am in for the night. If I am out in the world, I am using wearing jeans or a dress and a bra. When I am hope for the night it is yoga pants and a t-shirt time, with no bra. 

My husband works in an office. The first thing he does when he gets home is change out of his work clothes  into jeans and a t-shirt.

I think shoes inside can be regional due to weather. Of course you don’t wear shoes inside of you live somewhere with lots of snow, sleet, and mud. But in a very dry and warm place, it may not be as big of a deal. I prefer my kids to take their shoes off when they get in the door. But I live in a place with all four seasons. So it can get really wet and muddy or snowy. I admit I’m not a stickler about shoes in the summer.

I live in AZ, and I wouldn't be caught dead walking around barefoot in my house. Once you've been stung by a scorpion on your foot, the shoes never come off again! That was one of the first things I was told when I moved here...so I have inside shoes and outside shoes. The inside shoes never leave the house, but I have them on 24/7 unless I'm on the couch or in bed

I’m a no shoes inside and change when I get home from work woman.  My mother raised us with no shoes in the house.  She was raised that way because as the 6th of nine kids born in the depression, there wasn’t a lot of money.  They got 2 pair of shoes each year. Beginning of school and Easter.  So shoes came off the save wear.  My changing when I get home is similar to as a kid coming home and changing from school clothes to play clothes.  Also, it helps with metaphysical change between the two worlds, and I leave potential germs behind.

Skirts on bikes: I shudder at the thought!! So dangerous. Although aren't there these guard things you can put over the spikes to keep things from catching in the wheel? 

I got my shoelace caught in the pedals on the back of a Tandem once. That nearly caused a fall. Luckily the one on front could stabilize the bike while I slipped out of my shoe and then proceeded to detangle the laces. (Only rode in trainers with Velcro after that)

Same! Though we have lived all over. I did grow up leaving shoes and street clothes (I grew up in California) on the inside, but that changed in adulthood. We all take our shoes off immediately. In the summer, we have lightweight flip-flops we wear inside, and in the winter, we wear soled slippers. I have never seen a scorpion inside my house, though (we've been in this house for almost four years), but it still creeps me out.

I think the most important thing is to be compliant with what your hosts does regarding the shoe question. It’s their house, so if they wear house shoes/socks that’s what guests should do as well. Many can offer at least socks or are fine with the shoes for the moment- people should just remember for their second visit. Sometimes outside shoes are fine at bigger event/party/dinner- the floor would get dirty anyway and will be cleaned thoroughly afterwards. 
But I think it should be norm to follow such basic rules if you are visiting someone else’s home.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
