JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

Recommended Posts


Why did it take 6 people to go to the store and buy cheese?

When in labor, the medicals don't want you to eat anything; only ice chips to keep hydrated. The last thing the nurses want is for the mother to have anything in her intestinal tract. It will be expelled during labor. This was my experience during labor for my children. The nurse was glad that I had nothing to eat for 12 hours prior. 

The last thing a woman needs is for her inlaws and both parents to be at her home when she is beginning labor. NO need to be on display like that. I think it's a private time for the woman. These people really have no boundaries. Oy to the play by play coverage on Abbie's physical progress from Michelle being broadcast over the phone ON SPEAKER to Jana. Sorry, not good IMO.

Wouldn’t be for me either but Abbie and JD must have agreed to it. They kept a lot of other things private so maybe the lure of the bucks encouraged them

Abbie asked for cheese and crackers but I guess when they were in the store they thought oh let’s gets her all this other stuff. I found it funny that when Jana and the girls arrived at the hospital they couldn’t go in the room because Abbie was in the bath or something, she was probably naked, can’t be having the little girls see a naked woman. 

They didn’t actually show the labour just photos which I was surprised at but then again this couple does seem to be the most private out of all of them so I respect that.

As other posters said Michelle’s voice is annoying,I don’t know anyone who wants to hear that,nevermind a woman giving birth!

And yes they all crammed themselves into Abbie and Johns home, I couldn’t believe they all fit in that room to be honest. 

Then Jessa,Kendra,Lauren and Abbie and their babies all decided to take a photo and have a chat and one of them said all our daughters together or something like that and all I could think of was poor Joy and Austin( I hope they didn’t hear it but they probably did).

And for the first time in Duggar history, we have "birth episodes" with exactly zero footage of a birth.  We saw a tiny bit of video of Abbie in labor, and even then, when she was first shown laboring at home, for just a second I was sure she was about to lose her shit and punch the closest person holding a camera in the face.  🤣🤣 Besides that... just filler,  and some pics of the new baby. 

For a Duggar, Abbie set some boundaries like a motherfucking badass.  Unfortunately (for me), as I imagined Abbie whispering to JD that his parents and TLC could shove their cameras up their collective ass, I couldn't help but remember, in stark contrast, poor Anna pushing a baby et al out on the toilet in front of a camera crew and the world.  God, that was horrifying.  And apparently something you can't unsee....

So here's hoping that between Abbie and Jill/Jinger, they've shown all the Duggar girls/spouses once and for all that they can give birth however, wherever, and as often as they fucking want to (or don't want to, as the case may be).

Huh, they're nuts too? Abbie's dad seemed so genuine when he cooed at Gracie, kissed Abbie and hugged JD.

I still think that at least latent nuttiness is a prerequisite for being attracted to Gothardism, or at least for staying in it for more than about 25 minutes.

JD and Abby were both shilling baby/child care products on their IG story last night.  I wonder if the show is ending and the Duggar offspring are desperate for income (but too damn lazy to get a real job)?

What kind of real jobs could they get?  They have no job skills, not even the discipline of having a sleep/wake up routine.  They have pretty much been trained to do what they want, whenever they want.  Despite every single one of them apparently having "a servant's heart", I seriously doubt any of them could handle a job serving burgers and fries, much less anything more complicated. 

If the TV money dries up and JB's fortune dwindles, shilling crappy products over the internet is their best bet to keep food on the table.  All thanks to their "wonderful" parents who prepared them for nothing but procreation and TV appearances.

Kind of unethical for Nurse Abbie to shill meds - or quasi med products. As long as she didn't sate she's a nurse in the commercial I think it's ok...but dubious, like everything Duggar. She fits right in.

Who is their audience?  These two are even more boring than that pale blond couple with two very young, very pale blond children.

The gift giving season is over, so even the grandma baby lovers are taking a few months off!

It's basically water, fruit juice, herbs. Gripe water and the like. Placebos or watered 'supportive' treatments. Abby should be ashamed, because JD can't be! Just sell some young living oils and call it a life. Sheesh.

So, despite Abbie's LPN training, it looks like she's going all woo with the "natural, organic" stuff? What's next? Plexus and essential oils?

There are idiots with medical training everywhere. I know a PA who thinks the flu vaccine is designed to make money for Big Pharma.

My dvr taped Abbie’s birth special last night.   Was i the only one?  Or did I miss it the first time around?

 

Couldn’t help but notice that film crew only filmed parts, the majority of labor and all of pushing was not filmed.

TLC released it on their website a couple of weeks ago, but my DVR picked up TLC's airing last night. I hope dumping them in that Saturday at 10 timeslot is a harbinger of things to come.

I haven't seen the birth eposide of baby Gracie yet . Did Abbie's mom/sister fly over to Ark in time for the delivery?

For the daughter-in-law's (daughter-in-love according to Kelli Bates), I prefer the birth mom's family to be center stage... as good or bad as they may be in the birthing room... Michelle/Jana/Jill have plenty of their own blood mommies to tend to.

I finally watched that birth special, if you can call it that. Wow, such under-enthusiasm. This looked like everyone in front of AND BEHIND THE CAMERAS were totally bored. A snoozer for sure. The interest in their labors and deliveries is dying down rapidly IMO.

I go back and forth between giving Abbie kudos for insisting on privacy during her delivery and then thinking JD demanded the privacy because he wasn't going to let anyone see HIS wife's lady parts.

Birth preview or whatever it was called got 640 K viewers and a .1 rating.  It was the 65th cable show on a Saturday.

Saw the eposide...anyone else catch how Lauren  managed to let it be known/reminded that her epidural didn't  take ?  do how many opportunities are we going to have to hear her whine about her delivery? She can really bring down a moment.

Feeling a little sad Jinger wasn't there.

Was Jessa's daughter trying to sign with her fingers? Those little fingers were really moving- almost at the rate jessa was speaking 🤣🤣

IIRC Jinger is not into watching or being around labor and delivery. She may actually be relieved to be far away from the never ending births.

What was Michelle so busy doing that she couldn't make a cheese run? That sounds like the perfect  request / errand/wild-goose-chase to her to get out of Abbie  way. might need to borrow that ploy myself- have someone  runaround late after pepperjack...

Jana and the entragouge of young girls..looked odd to me..not sure why...maybe that job needs to passed down to Joy?...one of the girls has gotten  quite  tall.

What we don't know is ..will there be a 2hr special next season with more detail. We know TLC and the Duggars love the backwards filming- show a preview and the next season's finale is an expanded  version of was already  aired.

How many more Duggarling births will there be?

There will be an infinite number of opportunities for her to tell that story over and over.  Hopefully, the show will go off of the air at least before we've had to hear it at the 30th grand-Duggar birth.

Maybe it was both.  Maybe Abbie wanted some privacy and used JD's possessive streak to get him to advocate with Big Boss JB that Abbie wasn't going to be home-birthing on the toilet for the cameras to see. In either case, I'm glad Abbie didn't have to be subjected to that.

Not for the birth specials. Those have re-aired as-is.

I was just impressed that she didn't mention Asa - at least that I remember. 

Jessa's daughter was sending messages through the television for a rescue.

I thought that was Abbie's mother who was saying that. And I too wondered if that was supposed to help Abbie? or did her mom or Michelle think Abbie shouldn't "carry on" so much? I hope that wasn't the reason!

 Reddit  has video of Michelle‘s birthing advice played over John David and Abby‘s first kiss. It may be the most disturbing thing I’ve ever heard.
