I'm confused as to how she got pregnant so quickly – didn't she suffer from amenorrhoea? I would have thought it'd be more difficult to get knocked up…

From everything she's posted, they weren't trying to have kids yet and this pregnancy was a total surprise. I actually feel kind of bad for her since although she will be an amazing Mom, I know she has a lot of running goals that are going to be a lot harder to accomplish with a baby around.

She mentioned in a post this week about her weight gain that she had had to put on some weight over the past year so that they could be in a place where she could get pregnant, so I'm guessing that she ended up fixing that with her weight gain.

I don't think it was a complete surprise. She mentioned in a separate post that she has been trying to gain weight for a while so that they could get pregnant, so obviously it was something they were planning on. I think it was only a surprise in the sense that she didn't know when it would actually happen.

As for the running, she strikes me as a very motivated person, and she will figure out a way to reach her goals even with a kid. She is the type that would wake up at 3am to get a run in if necessary.

Since it seems like they are moving to another state and Billy will be in law schoo,l and I doubt Janae will be working, who the eff is going to pay for all of them to live? Their parents? I swear, it seems like every person on the internet has some sort of trust fund they can all live off of. 

They'll probably live off school loans like many people do when they go to school. I, like everyone else, have no idea how they pay their bills, but Janae does have a full time job, and I doubt it's very expensive to live in Utah. It's not like they take 5 vacations a year and live in a nice place. I'm sure they get some help from their parents, whether it's in the form of free food or paying for gas every now and then. My parents help me out a tiny bit because they like to, but they're certainly not paying for much.

This is probably right.  I don't know where Billy is going to law school, but next to nobody worked part- or full-time at the school I went to, and most of us didn't have spouses to support us, either.  It's easy to get loans and scholarships to cover the cost of grad student living for three years, enough even to support a small family.  There were about 25 Mormons at my law school when I was there — 2 women, 4 unmarried men, and the rest were married men with young kids whose wives didn't work.  All this is to say that I doubt the pregnancy will have any impact on law school plans at all and in fact was part of the plan all along. 

 

This ties into something I think is amusing, namely, that Mormons are largely really politically conservative, but have no problem taking public benefits to support their young, large families while the men finish school.

She did say that the pregnancy was a huge surprise. I doubt it's been part of the plan all along.

Ah my bad.  I don't read hrg regularly, and was just operating from my baseline knowledge about what's common for Mormons.


I'm pretty sure it was a surprise because she wasn't sure she was ovulating yet.  She said in the weight post that she had to gain weight in order to get pregnant.  In my mind that means they'd clearly been trying for quite awhile to know she needed to do some things to make it possible to get pregnant.

Janae is cute, yes, but my God, does she have to post a billion times a day? It's starting to drive me insane; I may have to unsubscribe soon.

 

On a positive note, Billy is hot. Super hot.

I think she is one of the cutest pregnant women and the cutest pregnant HLB.

Am I the only one who doesn't like this blog? She reminds me of Meghann- bad spelling and grammar mistakes, generally low IQ, immature, exercise obsessed… yeah, she does seem genuinely sweet but she has nothing to say anymore! Why does she blog so much?!

Nope, I'm with you. She seems nice and all, but for me, there's nothing even remotely compelling about that blog.

I tried her for a while but just couldn't get into her blog. Agreed with the above assessments.

Not WKing here because I only read ocassionally but how can you say she has a low IQ? Just seems odd because she's a teacher (which I know really doesn't mean she has to be super intelligent) but it she holds her job obviously, so I guess that remark just seemed strange to me! I think she tries to seem cutesy but she doesn't strike me as stupid. Then again, that could just be me.

I think she is a genuinely nice person and is not as self-absorbed like most  the other running blogs, but she does have a lot of filler posts. Like, OMG I had the best dinner ever! Turkey and a baked potato! YAWNNNNNN.

 

Also, this is off the subject, but I noticed she said she won’t be working when the baby comes and Billy is starting law school. How the hell do they expect to live in CA with no income or purely on student loans? I’m not from the west coast and have the idea that it is just extremely expensive to live there. Can someone fill me in?

I'm not a fan either but I don't hate her, she's over the top peppy but sometimes that's a nice contrast to some other HLB's attitudes. As far as teaching, she's more of a glorfied camp counselor, which is great for her personality, but she's not teaching anything intellectual. And good for her, she looks like she enjoys what she does.
