Change is in the Air

New episodes of 19 Kids and Counting return to TLC on September 2nd, and as always, there are a lot of changes in store for the Duggar family. Watch the clan prepare for Jill and Derick's wedding, and see how Jessa Duggar's relationship with Ben Seewald is affected when Ben moves closer to the Duggars. In Washington D.C., Josh and Anna Duggar decide it's time to make changes to their growing family.

What are your predictions for the upcoming season?

    ReplyDelete
  4. I think that Josh and Anna are expecting! Jessa will get engaged. I also think one of the other older children will begin a courtship relationship!

    ReplyDelete
  5. well there house is pretty big and Anna said she isn't pregnant so maybe they are moving back to Arkansas

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hmm another baby..lol

    ReplyDelete
  7. I can't wait for the next season to air! I am dying to see the wedding footage! I am betting that Josh and Anna decided to move closer to the town part of D.C. but I can't imagine them packing and moving again at the same time.

  8. josh and anna will have another baby and jill will be pregnant by xmas

    ReplyDelete
  9. Babies. And engagements. It's always babies and engagements, right? Maybe another courtship just for fun and variety?

    Seriously though, I <3 the Duggar Fam :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. i think Anna is pregnant, and they will move back to arkansas… I think ben and jesse will get engaged

    ReplyDelete
  11. Sounds like there could be another kid on the way! Can't wait for the season to start!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Is Josh and Anna going to move back? or have more kids? or stop?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think Josh and Anna will be moving closer to the Duggar family I think they miss them too much. I also think Ben and Jessa will be getting engaged soon. Anna may be pregnant with number 4. It would not surprise me if Jill is pregnant before the season is over. Their could be plans for another wedding, Jessa and Ben. Love the Duggars can't wait to see them in the new season.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think its either a baby or that they are moving back

    ReplyDelete
  15. Can't wait! I love the duggar clan

  16. My predictions for the upcoming season regarding changes in Josh's family are:

    1. They decide to downsize their home.
    2. They get a puppy.
    3. They have a yard sale.
    4. They move back to Arkansas.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Maybe they decide to adopt a child since they do their Mission Trips that include orphan kids.

      Delete
    2. No pets! Their 2 kittens got put outside and that scares me! Anna is really a great housekeeper and as she said, "Pets make messes" The downsizing is unlikely cause they would like more children and their current home is large enough. Moving back to Arkansas is not likely considering Josh's job is really what he likes! The yard sale is possible but it most likely won't happen cause what they appear to have is fairly new in the house. Hmmmmm. Happy ideas though!

  17. Oh wow! Suuuper excited for next season!!!!!
    I can't imagine what kind of changes they would make....

    ReplyDelete
  18. I began watching the show this year. This morning I saw "A Duggar Loss" for the first time. I cried as if I had lost my own child throughout this episode! The faith, strength, and love this family has is absolutely amazing!! What a wonderful inspiration each of you are to all of us!! I look forward to watching more, smiling with their joyous times, and praying during their difficult times. What a blessing! ❤

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think Josh and Anna will buy a house near DC making their move more permanent. I think Jessa & Ben will get to know each other better this year and I think Jill will discover she is expecting. I think Jana will meet someone special.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I hope they are having another baby!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I hope Jill is already pregnant and that Jessa is engaged. I hope Jana, John-David and Jinger are in courtships.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Are they getting a dog?

    ReplyDelete
  23. As of April at the ATI Big Sandy conference, Anna was not pregnant. Anna's sister, Priscilla, is pregnant though. And the Bates' new daughter-in-law, Whitney, is expecting a baby in October. So...since this upcoming season was filmed mostly between Jill's engagement and wedding (End of March through end of June), I think it's safe to say there will not be a pregnancy announcement from Josh and Anna this season.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Also, Josh and Anna still lived in DC as of end of April, so it could be that they are moving to Arkansas, but not until the end of the season, at least.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Josh and Anna will be getting a family pet (cat, dog, etc), Jessa and Ben...a possible engagement, Jana or John-David will be in a courtship, Jill and Derrick will be expecting their first child and the announcement will come at the end of this upcoming season.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm pretty sure Jessa and Ben are already engaged, Jana is already courting someone and maybe Josh and Anna have decided that raising kids in the city is not where they want to bring their kids up.

    Whatever the surprise is I guarantee two weeks prior to airing TLC will spill the beans to attract as much publicity for the series. Either way though I'm super excited to see it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well, I think Josh and Anna will find out they are going to have another baby and they find out she'll be having twins. Of course Jessa and Ben will get engaged, Jill will announce she's expecting, maybe John David or Jana will begin courtships, and who knows, maybe the Lord will bless Jim Bob and Michelle with another little one.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Perhaps Marcus will be growing a mustache?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have a feel that Jessa and Ben arn't together anymore. I think they broke off their courtship when Ben moved closer to the Duggars.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I hope that Anna will b expecting, and Jill will b4 2 long!! :) Looking forward to seeing their wedding!! I also think that Ben and Jessa might tie the knot soon! ;)
    God bless u, Duggar family!! <3

    ReplyDelete
  31. I guess they are getting a dog :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Let's see... (1) Josh & Anna are expecting and Jinger moves to DC to help out, where she meets someone through Josh's work and begins a courtship. (2) John-David announces he has been courting for a while and they are getting engaged - and no, TLC is not invited to the wedding. (3) Jim-Bob is approached by one of the Alert leaders about courting Jana and they plan on settling in Big Sandy (4) Jill & Derrick are expecting. (5) Jessa and Ben decide that they are great friends but decide not to proceed to an engagement. Jessa then goes on a mission to Central America where she meets this fantastic missionary and elopes... okay maybe that's getting carried away a bit. But we are looking forward to the next season. ~ From Lili in NFLD

  33. Josh and Anna will either have another baby or move back to Arkansas. Jessa will probably get engaged, Jill would find out she's pregnant and at least one of the older kids will start a courtship.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think that Josh and anna will adopt 2 kids !

    ReplyDelete
  35. Anna and Jill expecting :) jessa engagement

    ReplyDelete
  36. I totally agree with anonymous 19!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I hope Anna is expecting & Jana and one of the boys is in a relationship! But I don't think that is the case. All in God's timing. :) My predictions....Jessa gets engaged, Jinger is in a courtship, and Josh and Anna maybe get a dog...can't wait to find out!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. On instagram Jessa's name in JessaSewald, so I say josh and Anna move home, Ben and Jessa get engaged, and Derrick and Jill are expecting!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I bet Band Jessa are getting engaged, and that's why Ben moved closer. That way they will have a house/apartment, etc. when they get married!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Maybe Josh and Anna are expecting. Jessa and Ben will get engaged and maybe another courtship.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Anna and Jill pregnant! Moving back home and it would be awesome if Michelle was pregnant again!

    ReplyDelete
  42. josh and anna adopt!! jill and derick too maybe? john david starts a courtship! and jessa gets engaged!janna futhers her education! jinger ventures off on her own to do the lords wrk!mr n mrs duggar write another book just for couples! i can not wait!!!!!great peeps! we are so excited thank you for sharing all of you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. i think josh and anna are going to be building a house in washington d.c somewhere., expecting a fourth baby. jessa and ben get engaged. one of the other older kids start courting. and jill and derick are expecting twins.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I bet the change for josh & Anna is simply starting homeschooling & parenting older children & maybe a puppy? I think there's another courtship in the air :-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Josh and Anna are either adopting or are pregnant. Or the big news is Michael begins homeschooling.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Anna or Jill are pregnant. Jessa and Ben will be engaged.

    ReplyDelete
  47. If it's The Lord's will for Jill and Derrick to have children if they will name all their kids starting with the letter D since both her maiden name and her new last name and his name all start with the letter D?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Sounds like they might be getting a bigger house....since it says changes to their growing family. Plus I'm sure Josh's making more money. Or they are moving back to Arkansas! ~Stacy

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think josh and Anna will move closer to the family, and find out their having their 4th. Jessa and Ben will get engaged.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Regarding Jana she seems like a sweet old soul and a little bit shy. If she is in a courtship I can see her being more private/reserved than her siblings are. I think Jana's sweet and Godly temperament is precious and if she decides to be more private in her courtship I just pray others will respect her or any Duggar who chooses to be low key about their courtships :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. My predictions for this new season:
    1. Josh and Anna get some sort of house pet (dog or cat)
    2. Jessa and Ben will get engaged (if not already)
    3. Jill and Derick will be pregnant
    4. Hopefully Jana or John David begin a courtship

    ReplyDelete
  52. I can't wait for this upcoming season !!!
    -Brittany :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I hope jill and Derek aren't pregnant! I hope they get to spend sometime just the 2 of them to really build their relationship. Maybe travel and be missionaries. I think Jana is courting but doesn't want it public she seems very private. I hope jessa and Ben get engaged. I think josh and Anna will get a pet. I doubt they'll move josh seems to like his job. I hope we see more of the middle kids this season!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Jessa and Ben will get engaged. Anna is not pregnant (yet) so either they will get a pet like some comments already suggested or make a move. Jana might announce she’s in a courtship.

    ReplyDelete
  55. another baby !.... They have so many children Duggar familly so I guess Anna, Jana, Jill will have as much as babies as possible. Countdown started :).....

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think that Jill will be expecting (of course) or she and Derrick will go on a missions trip. I think that Josh and Anna might be moving or expecting. I think Ben will propose (or at least I sure hope he does) and possibly another courtship

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks for the new pic!!! Love it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. @Anonymoushow do you know that?

    ReplyDelete
  59. I could so see Josh and Anna getting a dog LOL!!! That would be adorable!! Their kids would love it.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I hope Jill doesn't get pregnant right away! I hope she is one of the very few couples in the Duggar family that wait maybe 3ish years before they have a baby.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Another engagement and wedding (Jessa) and pregnancy jot Jill

    ReplyDelete
  62. Will you post them online after they air or are new episodes going to be up on youtube? I am about to cancel cable to save some money, but I hate to miss the new exciting season!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I am sooo happy that the Duggars are coming back at the beginning of Sept.Maybe that means more episodeds.Hey there Lily and Ellie, I hope you can help me, I have been trying for ages to find out who all the Duggar buddies are matched up with, i have searched high and low with no avail.Since you ladies are the masters at research i was hoping you can help.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think I read somewhere that Josh and Anna moved to a different home. It sure seemed that those outside steps to ground level on the rental house were a challenge. Otherwise, it was a nice large home. Hope they are happy in their new place.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I hope there are no more babies. Jim Bob and Michelle, as well as Josh and Anna all have more than enough. Also, Jill is way too young to have a baby. She should enjoy being in her 20s and having time alone with Derick before doing something so drastic. If the timing is right and if they are right for each other, hopefully Ben and Jessa get engaged.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I think Josh and Anna will stop being filmed- maybe they will film when they are with their parents, but nothing more.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I can't wait it see Jill and Derick's Wedding! I think Anna is pregnant and Jill will be soon. Hopefully Jessa and Ben will get engaged :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think Jana will be moving in with Josh and Anna as she courts someone in D.C. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  69. @Anonymous
    Excuse me 38! I whole heartedly and respectfully disagree. If anyone wants to have a baby, it's not our place to decide. Just because you think so, doesn't mean they think so. I for one they get to have #20, #4, and of course #1. And I sincerely hope Jessa and Ben get engaged!!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'm finding it quite humorous to read through everyone's predictions of what will happen in the upcoming season..... Y'all do realize that even though the new season starts in September, filming is most likely already done, right? Jill will announce a pregnancy? Um, seeing as how she wasn't married til late June, she would have JUST found out several weeks ago (at most) if she was pregnant. Sorry to burst your bubble. :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I know that someone mentioned that Josh and Anna's house was up on the market again so they will be moving for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  72. @Anonymous

    Anonymous 70: in the past, when the season ends and filming wraps, if something "new" and "unexpected" happens, I've noticed JB or Michelle will go on the commentary video and talk about whatever it was that "popped up" ala Ben and Jessa courting after they filmed the flea market episode. So, it's possible they will end the season with an announcement that Jill's expecting. This of course sets the stage for the next season and keeps us hanging on the edge of our seats/couches LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I belive that in the new season....
    1. Josh and Anna misses the family so much they decide to invite Jana and Joy-Anna to live with them and their parents say yes and so does Jim-Bob and Michelle
    2. When Jana is in DC she begins a courtship
    3. Anna is pregant with number 4
    4. Michelle and Jim-Bob decide to adopt a a child.
    5. Jessa and Ben decide that they are two different people so they decide to not go father in the courtship and just be friends.
    6. The last episode will show Jill saying that she is pregnant with her 1st child. (She isn't pregnant again she will find out that she is pregant in early-middle October)

    ReplyDelete
  74. I find it very ironic that so many people think Jill is too young or has not been married long enough to get pregnant, and at the same time, they think that Jessa and Ben should get engaged. Engagement leads to marriage, and then marriage leads to pregnancy. Children are the main blessing of marriage. Obviously Jill and Derick will want children and I don't doubt that Jessa and Ben will be any different as soon as they're married.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think it would be wonderful if Jim Bob and Michele adopted a child from South America.

    ReplyDelete
  76. To anonymous at 8/5/14, 10:13 a.m., (no. 65 at present).... have you read the scientific studies that say that the 20s are the best time to have kids, and that those who wait might lessen their chances of having kids at all? I know someone who married in her early 30s, had her first child at 35, put off having another for a couple of years, only to find she could not get pregnant again. You and your ovaries(!) are at their prime in the 20s. Why waste those years???

    ReplyDelete
  77. Lily and Ellie-
    sorry this is off topic, but could you PLEASE put up Derick's birthday on your birthday page? Thnx

    ReplyDelete
  78. Josh and Anna decide not to have TLC film them at their house anymore. Which would be sad. I do like the getting a dog ideas too.
    John David engaged to the girl who made Anna her bday cake this year (they took a picture together).
    Ben and Jessa decided they will remain just friends. I like Ben and Jessa, ut I don't know if I like them both together. . .

    ReplyDelete
  79. My ideas for the new season:
    1) Jessa gets engaged to Ben (if they are not already)
    2) Josh and Anna find out they are expecting or adopt a child
    3) Josh and Anna Get a pet of some sort
    4) Josh and Anna move back to Arkansas
    5) Jim Bob and Michelle find out they are expecting or adopt
    6) Jill and Derick find out they are expecting (at the end of the season)
    7) Amy Duggar engaged

    ReplyDelete
  80. 1. Josh and Anna move to a Maryland or Virginia suburb.
    2. Jana and Jinger are courting.
    3. I hope we see Johanna more!
    4. The little girls get jurisdictions.

    ReplyDelete
  81. why does everyone want to rush jill to have a kid. i hope she decides for her self and not let anyone tell her what to do. and I hope Jessa wakes up and gets rid of Ben. There is something about him I just don't like. anyone else notice this.

    1. Totally!! I see lots of red flags, but out of my respect for the Duggars I will refrain and just pray that it all works itself out.God only knows.

    2. I am with you on this!

      Delete
    3. Yes! I've gotten the same bad feeling from him. However, I hope he's a great guy whether or not they stay together. The Lord has a husband for Jessa and I hope she's following the Lord's leading....very difficult to have discernment when blinded by love.

      Delete
  82. I agree with Anonymous 70!!!! I was just reading through and found it hilarious!! I was also just thinking about how Jill will announce a pregnancy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. my guess is josh & anna will adopt a pet. they will not be announcing a pregnancy because on her birthday, anna said she was 'content where she was in life and that god knows how to plan a family better than her and josh do' after she confirmed she was not pregnant at the time. that was only the end of june so no, dont think she's pregnant now.
    i also think ben moving closer to jessa resulted in their engagement and they arent going public with it until it airs on the show after derick & jills wedding episode
    my other predictions are possible courtships; jana, john-david and/or joseph. we haven't heard as much about these three lately so it would be wonderful to hear more about them.
    dont know if this is hype or what but i had read michelle was pregnant. since last season ended with them seeing the doctor, i suspect the subject will come up later in the season with an announcement

    ReplyDelete
  84. jim bob and michelle will adopt a child.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I think Anna and Josh will make a move.... maybe back home to Arkansas, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was to somewhere else. I don't think they'd make such a fuss over a cat or dog addition. They had a kitten when MacKenzie was little and it was like the focus for 5 minutes of the show and that was it.

    I'm sooooo excited to see Jill and Derrick's wedding!!
    And I hope that God has someone in mind for John-David or Jana or one of the other older ones and we get to meet them this season :)

    Everyone forgets that filming is way behind - they're probably almost done with filming! If you haven't heard it in the news, there's probably no babies in those episodes.

    ReplyDelete
  86. @Anonymous Remember that those Duggar kids grew up in a different culture of their own, and to them 20 something is not to young to start a family. If it feels right to them then they should.Anna loves being a young mommy.Whatever this lovely family decides to do then I'm all for it.The Lord has a big say so too,right?:-):-):-)

  87. Jill and Derrick are expecting 2:josh anna are expecting3:jessa and Ben engaged:4one of the older kids get into a courtship

    ReplyDelete
  88. I think that the opinion about Jill waiting a bit for children is because she has had no life experience outside of being a daughter in this large family. Most people out there in the real world see the need for her to have some time for herself to grow up and experience life as it for herself and now with Derick. A child isn't a hobby, it is a full time, 24/7 life commitment. Jill has already been committed to her "buddies", ie siblings and waiting a bit would be an emotionally healthy thing for them to do.
    Also, it disturbs me that some posters tend to treat these people in their comments like they are TV sitcom fictitious characters and not real human beings. As we see this show, although scripted, the life changes that occur are actually real and they are not portraying a TV character. People should not play with their lives and toss them around.

    Hi Anonymous 64,

    We will post recaps of the episodes immediately after they air. The shows are uploaded to YouTube by other viewers, not by us, but if/when they are uploaded, we will post the links. :)

  92. O m goodness, I've been waiting, and waiting, and can't belive its alomost time, I'm super super excited that its not to far from the season premier, of my most fav show, I love this family so very much, and just can't wait, I love the duggars, and I'm so very happy to get to see this most special time of their life when they get to send their first daughter off into the world, and hopefully another one not too far behide, I can't say it enough I love the duggars. Cant wait to see them, in sep Michelle and I have the same bday, o I love them. Too excited over here.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I hope Jill does not get pregnant rigth away - she said she wants to be a missionary and it would be neat if Jill and Derrick could do some mission work abroad before starting on having babies.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I think josh and Anna move back to Arkansas. Iblp and ati are both very firm about family relationships. And with their family growing, they probably feel it is important to have family closer. I think by the end of the season both her and jill will be pregnant.
    I also think Michelle will find out her baby days are over, and adoption will become a more realistic option for them.
    And jessa and Ben become engaged. If they aren't already. I've suspected it for ages. He has no real reason to move closer. If josh and Anna could maintain an interstate courtship, then I see no reason why jessa and Ben can't cope with living a couple of hours apart.

    ReplyDelete
  95. edit: I realized I should clarify that I think it would be wonderful if Jill and Derick were expecting or if Jessa and Ben got engaged.
