Does Nurie still not have her own social media presence (or even one with Nathan)? 

If she does, it must be private. We only see what JillR shares. Which fits the “best mama ever” narrative that JillR needs. Nurie and Nathan probably don’t care about SM at all. I think Nathan preached against it, JillR linked it, she probably figures she’s exempt.

The decorations are going to be super tacky 😁

And not enough food

I'm sure she will use some of the women's retreat stuff, maybe even a few pieces from her "garden".

You’re probably right. What are the chances that Jill gets permission from Nurie before posting? It probably doesn’t even occur to her to ask, she’s so used to doing whatever she wants.

20 weeks pregnant

She looks healthy. Her arms aren't stick thin. Sure she hardly looks pregnant but she doesn't look emaciated anymore.

I just had this strange (but very real) urge to buy a gift for Nurthan's baby.  If Nathan and Nurie shared a registry link I would totally purchase something for them.  Only if it was posted on anyone's SM other than Jill's, and was being shipped directly to them.  I don't know why, but I want these 2 crazy kids to break free and "make it!"  Along the 12 other Rod kids.

Me,too.And I can totally see Nurie using Best Momma's name somehow,although hopefully it'll be her middle name,if it's a girl

She posted in her stories. None of her sisters with the clotting disorder have gone to 40 weeks. All of Erin's were born around 36-37 weeks. It doesn't surprise me that they're inducing early.

I think Josie has been going to the doctors every week for awhile, so they seem to be monitoring her closely. Does Carlin or Tori have the clotting disorder? Alyssa doesn’t IIRC.

OK thank you.  I guess I missed that story.  I do tend to fast forward through their content pretty quickly sometimes.

Jill, it’s a sex reveal, not a gender reveal.

An apparent genital reveal, really. Or I suppose if you had an amniocentesis or other testing, chromosomal sex, but most people just base it on an ultrasound. Which can be inaccurate!

I'm not sure how far long she is. 

I hope she and the baby are okay. I hope the realization that pregnancy has health repercussions gets her and her husband to think about options to slow/stop the baby train.

Her post wasn't crystal clear on details, but it appears that the induction will take place in about 2 weeks. She was due at the end of June, so that makes sense.

Is it really trendy? I feel like it's probably more born out of ineptness/cheapness than trend.

Yes, it's a trend, but fortunately it's starting to die out.  Of course the fundies are behind on the trend, so they're all in with it.  I think it was started by a designer named Thom Browne.

Yikes! I can't even imagine wanting to do that willingly. I mean, I've combatted my fair share of ill-fitting clothes, and feeling like you can't move your arms or that you are about one wrong move away from a wardrobe malfunction is not something I'd voluntarily sign up for. LOL

But, if you look at Thom Browne's stuff, the pieces actually fit; it's just that it looks like the wearer has outgrown the outfit with the sleeves and pantlegs being too short.  The rest of the suit is tailored properly.

Yes she did.  She did not specify exactly what they were worried about (not that she was obligated to do so).  Still, it annoys me when they allude to "issues" and then clam up. In that case just don't say anything at all. 

I don't get the close fit suit trend either.  They don't work for guys who are muscular.  My son plays hockey and has thighs like a speed skater.  The skinny pant legs tend to ride up.

I agree it’s tacky, but some women have been wearing too tight clothing for years, so I guess the men are finally catching up 🤣
