I've never seen anyone act more entitled than them. It is absolutely crazy! John should have been first in line begging to not be put on furlough.

It bothers me how often they go out to eat. In fairness, there was more before Vera was born but they sure did take every opportunity to go out. I'm not saying they shouldn't have the occasional treat or date but don't beg for money then go out to lunch or for milkshakes several times a week. All that adds up fast. Also saw once on John's insta that he was looking to buy a new kitchen knife. Likes to use chef quality ones. Seems these two feel they deserve the best. If you beg for money don't spend $100 on a kitchen knife. Just saying.
Anyone notice that seems to be the MO of most youtube vloggers who've had babies/been pregnant this year? What really irritated me was how they set up registries as if they didn't have the exact things they registered for already at home. Maeve never used any of those things, They already had a shower for Maeve and were ready. None of those things were used I get some they have and they did change their registry a while later. But to put a $300 item on their registry for their viewers to buy them was nuts.

They could've paid it forward in so many ways.

But.. Maeve's things are far too special for any other living baby to ever use! If Vera isn't good enough, i know some stranger baby in need wouldn't be! Didn't they say at one point that they had tons of her stuff but would NOT be using it for Vera? Like including her crib or something crazy like that? I wonder if when they get this house finally finished if they are going to set up a nursery for Maeve with all her things in it, to leave untouched?

[img]//uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201807 ... 114c14.png[/img] I’m really shocked they didn’t include Maeve at all. I would have thought it would be Love from, Joan, John and Maeve

Better the stuffed Fox than an actual picture of Maeve. And I was happily surprised they signed it Joan and John.

That wasn’t extended vacation. He used the words furlough. And said some guy was going to use it for surgery... then he said he wanted an extra day and his boss said to call the day before he was to go back and they could discuss.... I was Rather shocked since they are always in need of money...
But from today’s video it sounds like people even send them diapers so maybe they are all set!

If he's taken time off I would not be at all shocked it's because he's anxious about leaving them alone. I would be.

Joan in her newest video talking about Vera’s birth...

“I don’t know how long I was pushing but it felt like hours!!” Then she explained that they had her try to rest throughout the night (not pushing) and let the contractions work Vera down themselves. Then morning rolled around and they decided on a csection. So no she wasn’t pushing for 11 or even 9 hours like she was saying right after V was born. It sounds like she pushed for maybe 2-3 hours then they had her rest for the night.

And those “machines that pump all the water out of my legs” are called scds and all moms that have a csection have those on until they are able to get up and walk. They are so you don’t get blood clots in your legs as you are immobile for a good while after surgery. She makes it sound like she is a special snowflake!

I had a section and had nothing on my legs. Now, I am in Canada so they may do things differently. Also after my section the nurse had me up at 4:00 AM and I walked to the bathroom with her help to get my catheter out and walk back to the bed.

They are very common after any surgery here. So you do not get blood clots while you’re not adequately up and about. Also in the new video she acts like she went through true hell on earth with post partum and emotions and pain... honey it’s ALL NORMAL. You don’t get to win the pain Olympics this time. Welcome to birth and being a mother.
And when she goes on and on about her nipples... yes. That’s what happens when you breastfeed the first time... you push through and it heals and toughens and works.... I hate the pain Olympics.

Exactly. I schedule surgeries (in Canada) and doctors will order them for a lot of their major cases. Joan isn’t special. They are common in c-sections and other cases over an hour.

Bitches worship me, my spinal didn’t work during my csection and I felt everything. This is the first time it’s ever happened and my doctor has been practicing for over a year in the medical field.

I tried to watch her latest vlog but had to turn it off. She is just too much and thinks everything she goes through is the worst. It isn't. She experienced birth which is hard no matter what happens. They almost hit her bladder? Well, in my true emergency C-section they did clip my bladder and I had a repair and thus was discharged with a catheter for TEN days while it healed. Do I win that Joan since I had a catheter for over a week with a newborn and toddler at home?? IT IS NOT A COMPETITION!! Almost everything she mentioned in the few minutes I watched was typical birth stuff. Nothing crazy. Nothing traumatic. Just birth. Get over yourself Joan!!

Seriously. We ALL have birth battle stories, and they're unique for us, not WORSE THAN ANYONE ELSE'S BIRTH IN HISTORY!!
I wound up with a 4th degree perineal tear with my first (big ole noggin, lol). 42 crotch stitches that stung and itched like a MFer for weeks, pooping was a horror show, but I was all caught up in baby bliss and honestly never thought for one second that my birth was the birth to compare all other's to. I just gave birth...like all mothers do. Jeez.

This comes off as Maeve Worship.... she really needs help. I’m very sorry she lost a child, but this obsessive focus is unhealthy.

Yeah they put them on if your having a lot of different surgeries. With C sections in the us while they do use the sds, they still get you up within 24 hours to further prevent them. It is important even when going home to get up and walk because you are still at great risk. Back when my cousin and I were pregnant together her delivery went smoothly and she went home but developed blood clots. So her mom took her to the hospital (same one that I had bad experience with) and it's famous for having an empty er but the waiting room is always full and wait time is far too long. Well her mom decided to take her to the other hospital in our county and they said if she'd waited just a few minutes longer my cousin's baby wouldn't have a mom. So it is important to keep an eye on that not only in the hospital but also at home.

I was talking to my OB after my second about a “normal uncomplicated birth”. He said in his 30 years of practicing he has yet to see one. Everyone’s got something but I think most forget because they are enjoying their little babes.
