Do you think your insides could handle anymore wear and tear? Come on now we know you have the money to have them all but there are alot of us out here who can barely make ends meet. Sometimes I think the kids do most of the taking care of the little ones. How come Michelle doesn't let the real her show, I know she has some yelling and anger in her but she hides it. It's going to catch up to her one day, no ene can deal with that all the time and be soft spoken it is not normal.

Jobe, Julie, Jackie...that's all I can think of right now. But Jobe is a great name - it's my last name! I can't wait to see the new episodes!

Sally said...

Would like to say Congrat's. to you both, and to your whole family. Please don't let the negativity let you down, people don't have anything else to do. May God Bless You and Help You through the times that are needed.

Jasmine,or Jamie,Jacqueline some good names

I have suggestions for baby "J" names:

For a girl: Julia Rose

For a boy: Judson "Jud" Benjamin

The reason I choose Julia Rose is because I like that name and they thought that Josie would be their last baby. That baby will definitely be a Rose.

The reason I choose Judson Benjamin is because that was supposed to be Jackson's name and I like that name. I found that out on "14 Children and Pregnant Again!"
I like the name Jackson too, but this one is especially dear to me because I found out about an angel in heaven that was named Judson.
He wasn't even three when he was welcomed into the arms of our Savior, Jesus Chirst. He had a rare disease called Krabbe disease. There are two different onsets of the disease: infantile and late onset. In the infantile form, you usually die before the age of two. You appear fine at birth, but the symptoms show up four to six months after. The later onset usually progresses slower. You usually die before age eight. In the late onset of the disease, symptoms appear after the age of two. Judson (not the Bates youngest), had the late onset form of Krabbe, but he passed away five months after the diagnosis. He lost the abilty to walk or stand, to see, to speak, and the ability to use his critical functions. He had severe leg spasms and irritability, but he never lost his simile and he continued to reveal the presence of God till his passing. He was so loving towards his younger sister, Jessie. Here is the link where you can learn more about who he was: http://storyofjudson.com
This illustrates that all children are a blessing! I am praying that Michelle's pregnancy goes well and the baby is healthy.

God bless! I hope this brightened your day :)

Sally said...

First and Far most I want to say Congrat's to Michelle And Jim. I am so happy . Please don't let them negative people get you down, they have nothing else better to do. Thats why our world is falling apart to much negativity!!! So keep your chin up, and May God Bless.And May Sh or He be Healthy and Be Strong..

I wish you well considering the problems with the last pregnancy, but I also have concerns which I am sure will not be allowed viewed. In this day and age with so many struggling and over population and over use of resources I think it is irresponsible to have this many children and to profit from this. Kudos to you though for finding someone else to fund your life style.

mariai4 said...

Congratulations!! May God continue to bless your family :) My husband and I also believe all children are a gift from god .. We both come from big families.. I am the oldest of 9 and he is the second youngest of 12.. We are a young family with so far 4 daughters ages 10,9,5 and 3. Which we thank god for each day.. If we will have anymore that is all up to god :) We believe that each child has brought more blessing to our family and god gives us strength to have time for each one ... Your family is definitely an encouragement for our family. Our daugthers love watching your show .. God Bless You

The Dellingers said...

What an awesome God we have! Anyone who has been blessed with children knows that God has to be in control. We are thankful for our children and will be praying for you all!

kewkew said...

Congratulations!! Praying for a safe pregnancy for you Michelle. The Lord has blessed you guys immensely.

kewkew said...

I didn't even realize you guys had a blog, I am now following.
Was wondering something. I don't know where I read it before, in your book on a site, not sure think at the end of the one book, but you had shared a story about not wanting to miss any of God's blessings for you which is why you don't use Birth control or one of the reasons I guess. Was wondering if you could let me know where I could find that, if you understand what I am asking.

Joyful said...

I am delighted with you, Michelle and Jim Bob! You encouage me, and I love to engage others in discussing your special family.

Zuni said...

Congratulations. Who better to have so many blessing than such a godly family. I just wish there was a way to teach all the young parents your wonderful gifts in child rearing.

Lily and Ellie said...

H kewkew!

We are thrilled to have you as a reader! Our blog is not run by the Duggar family. We, Lily and Ellie, are a mother-daughter team. The purpose of the Duggar Family Blog is to provide factual, encouraging information about Jim Bob and Michelle and their 19 kids and to shed a positive light on their family.

The Duggars believe that each child is a blessing from God, and they are leaving the size of their family up to Him. You can read more about their decision here:

Have a blessed day!

Sisters said...

Duggars, I am so happy for you all.
I found out this morning on the computer that you are having another one. We(my mom and 5 of my 7 siblings and I) prayed for you during our school Bible time.(I am home schooled)We prayed that the enemy would not attack you and if he did that you would stand firm in God. I know you probably get a lot of negative comments. But I just pray that you would stand firm in God and never fall away. Blessing to you all, Marylynn age 16

Bayley said...

In my last post, I said that Jackson was going to be called Judson Benjamin. He was actually going to be called Judah Benjamin. I like both of those names, but I like Judson Benjamin better.

Carrie/Sioux City Iowa said...

I want to say that I am very happy for your whole family. I want you to know that when it comes to those people out there that say mean & hurtful things just pray for them. People don't realize that there is so much hate in the world that really all we need to do is just not judge people & what they do, I just want everyone to be happy. I really hope that one day soon I can experience what it is like to have a baby, I am 33 years old and love kids but have none of my own, I would love nothing more to have at least one baby. So if I can see a family that I know will LOVE this baby like yours it makes me very happy. So Duggar family Congratulations.

Congrats on the new baby perhaps you will consider Jadon or Julia as baby names. I have a gut feeling this one is a boy!

Jodi said...

Isn't it time to let josh and Anna have the limelight and to just enjoy their granchildren?

Nancy Donovan said...

This is almost becoming cult like! These poor children have been brainwashed into thinking this is the norm ! To take such risks - for both baby & mom- is irrational, irresponsible & insane. I believe there needs to be legal action taken to stop this family from reproducing any longer ! They are knowingly & intentionally bringing a life into this world possibly handicapped in numerous ways from day one ! That in my book is a crime !

GirlRural.com said...

I am very excited for your family. Michelle- wishing you a safe, healthy and happy pregnancy. Keep up with that elliptical, you are a superstar!

Caroline said...

Yay, so exciting! My prayers will be with them during this special time.

Some of the older Duggar kids are in the process of earning their accredited degrees through CollegePlus! We have written several posts about that, including an exclusive message from Jill about her studies:

When are you going to stop having children? You have a grandchild. Your getting to old to keep having children. Give your body a break. And besides you cant give quality time with each one.

Congrats on the new addition to your family! I would like to see one of their kids become a scientist, lawyer, president, congressman/congresswoman, or astronaut someday! It'd be awesome if it was one of the girls!

God bless!

Alice said...

God bless your family, you two are a Godly example to the world. You show the world how to live life and love each other, with so many neglectful and abusive parents in todays culture your family is letting it's light shine before men to glorify your Father which is in heaven!Congratualtions on the coming baby, Jodi Rose is for a girls name and Jessyn for a boy!

Regina said...

The first thing that popped into my mind: "Justice" Lilly & Ellie, please pass this along to my sister in the Lord-Michelle Dugggar.

Jodie said...

Congrats!!! You are a wonderful example to the rest of America.

I just love them. That's awesome! I am so excited for them! :)

Anonymous said...

Come on people, enough already. Wasn't Michelle's and the baby's health in jeopardy the last time? I know God is watching over you, but I would think he would want you to consider your health and that you would be around to care for the children you already have. Rejoice in the family you have been blessed with and use the common sense God has given you.

I wish you guys the best I really do...but concerned I am....my god. I feel sorry for the kids...

I am was so sad watching the news yesterday at the reaction of folks at your wonderful news. I am due in May with my 5th child and I pray that I am half as wonderful as a parent as you guys are. We too home school and try to raise our kids in a proper way, but it is not always easy.

Any how, my point here is to offer you my support and to tell you how wonderful I think you all are and how my family and myself look up to you all.

May God continue to bless you all!

it actually makes me sad that you are bringing more children into this world when you don't have time for the ones you have. You have said the older kids are assigned a younger sibling don't you think that you should be doing the parenting and let your kids be kids. God wouldn't want you to put yourself in harm's way and what about all those people that can't have children? There you are showing off all your kids and wow you get paid to have them too!!shame on you

I hope that the other 19 children don't have to lose their Mom from the risks you are taking having another child. Selfish???
Have you ever thought about this Michelle?
I think you recieved a warning with Josie, it was time to stop.
For a boy's name how about Justdone!!
