  13. I wish your growing family the very best. When I was pregnant with my son my sister-in-law was pregnant with her son (6 months behind) and I can only imagine it's exciting for Jill to be pregnant along with Anna; even if they are in different states.

    ReplyDelete
  14. So when are the due? I'm guessing June or early July.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Congratulations.......gotta change the name of the show to "19 kids and a bunch of grandkids"!!

  19. I believe in DC you can't have a home birth, but there are a few birthing centers.

    ReplyDelete
  20. So happy for you! We have 3 (all teenagers) and are wishing now that we'd had more.

    ReplyDelete
  21. SOOOO EXCITED! I hope that Jessa gets pregnant along with them also. That would be really fun! If Anna is 9 weeks along, that means she's due in early July. So, her kids are getting just a little farther and farther apart. 20 months, 23 1/2 months, 25 months. She's hoping for twins, so I hope that they get twins this time. That would be super fun!

    ReplyDelete
  22. That is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITING!!! Congrats to you all!!!! =)

    Love in Christ,

    Mary =)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Congratulations! I hope your feeling better now Anna, I know your choice will be right for you. It's probably too early for names, but it would be wonderful to know what your thinking of. I always thought Maisy was lovely. I'm certain they will be beautiful, just like their big brothers and sister!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Super excited for Josh and Anna! Hopefully a little girl; they could name her Makayla!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am so happy for Josh and Anna! I almost cried for her during the episode of the negative test. Most of us have experienced that disappointment one time or another. I am so glad there is now a baby on the way!

    ReplyDelete
  47. oh man this is way exciting news!!!! Also.... Josh looks WAY good in scruffies. Beautiful couple. God bless the duggars.

  52. Congradulations Anna!!!! I'm excited and hoping it's gonna be a girl :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Josh and Anna have such a beautiful and very young, active family now. Why can't they be satisfied with what they have. How is she ever going to have a close relationship with each child when she is stretching herself thinner and thinner? They really don't have to keep up with the Joneses (an old expression) meaning they don't have to keep up with the others.

    ReplyDelete
  54. So excited for Josh and Anna!!! Hoping they have a girl this time!!!

  55. Congratulations to all,
    What a beautiful blessing,another child to cherish and love,

  60. Congratulations to your family. I myself think it's time for a baby girl lol Maybe Jill and Jana can come to D.C. to help deliver the baby. That would be awesome Congrats again

    ReplyDelete
  61. Congratulations Josh and Anna! With all the morning sickness you're experiencing maybe it's twins! : ) I always get morning sickness but it was way worse with my twins. I'll be praying for you, Anna.

  63. Sooooo exciting. Jill and her are only 4 months apart it well be so cool if Jessa is expecting in a month or two. I hope she has a girl Kynzie needs a little sister to look after. Also if the baby is born in June that well be 4 birthdays in June. Congrats Josh and Anna and kids

    ReplyDelete
  64. Yay! I am so excited for them that is awesome!:) Hope it.is a girl!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Congratulations Josh and Anna. You have a beautiful family. We aslo believe in letting God decide the size of our family and currently have 12 precious, homeschooled children. God bless you and your family. I will be praying for a safe delivery and a healthy baby!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I am so inspired by your joy! So many people now days say having a baby is horrible and brought nothing but difficulties into their lives. Watching your show and you all has kept my spirits high when deciding to start a family with my husband! You all inspire me so much.

    ReplyDelete
  67. If the baby comes in June, that will be four June babies 😄 Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Nice the way mom isn't alone in this and it is a joyful group effort!

    I think Josh and Anna live in the suburbs. Regardless, I live in DC and many of my friends have had home births. All were attended by certified nurse midwives. There are no regulations against home births here.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Oh, wow, so Anna is probably due sometime at the end of June?
    I'm sure she can have a home birth in DC too, just how would they go about other 3 kids? They'd need someone to stay with the kids. I would hate see Jana being exploited to babysit the kids of her brother, while she could marry and have kids on her own. I understand that it's cute to have another baby, but parents should rely on themselves and not on some "built-in babysitters".

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Wow, what kind of a selfish world do we live in when helping family in need is considered exploitation? Where I come from it's called familial love, or Christian charity!

      Delete
    2. Jana says she will marry in Gods time not anyone else's. I don't feel she would let herself be exploited by anyone! She would speak out. In one episode she let her sister deal with the kids even though she was chaperoning. She didn't assist. She just watched. So my point is she's stronger than you think! Also Josh's parents will probably be there for the birth as well so pount is moot!

  77. Congradulations to the five of you. So excited for another granduggar next summer. I hope it will be a girl this time, because you two need another girl and the Duggar family needs another granddaughter and niece for a change. Because after next spring, the Duggar's will want a girl after having three boy's in row.

  79. HI from Abbotsford BC
    I WANT TO SAY WOW, WOW, and WOW again!!!!!!!!!! I think you guys make very wonderful kids, so I can't wait to see this one. I just hope you two will have lots of support, and Anne take good care of yourself!!!!!! Josh you look like you lost lots of weight, and you look very healthy too. Well take care, and I look forward to see you new little one soon!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hopefully it will be a little girl so Mackynzie can have a sister!
    If Anna is 9 weeks now, it's another 7 months to go, so she is due around end of June?
    And if Jessa gets pregnant right away, she might have a baby at the end of July or in August! What a fruitful year for Duggars!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Wow! That is great news! I know Anna has been saying she wants another child. She looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I'm so happy for you both! Josh and Anna you have an amazing family and I wish you all the best in the world. I really think a child is always a gift from God and I'm glad another baby is on the way. He or she will be raised in a home full of love and faith. Anna you are such an inspiration to me. I don't know how you can manage 3 kinds, the house and the sickness of the pregnancy but I'm sure you'll be fine. Congratulations and God bless you all.

    ReplyDelete
  83. How can you say Jana is being exploited?I'm quiet sure she doesn't look it that way

    ReplyDelete
  84. Now to wait for Jessa's announcement.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Congratulations! Thank you for the inspiration you are to so many. I am hopeful that the example that the Duggar family is setting in modesty, courting, loving each other, being open to bearing and raising a large family and most of all living their faith and values for all to see makes this life style an option for others to embrace.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Congrats to you, Josh & Anna! I suggest the name Maryellen for a girl. :)

  93. Congratulations on your pregnancy Josh and Anna! I was so encouraged that you had Mackenzie, Michael, and Marcus either at home or at a birthing center. I had all three of mine in a hospital, and I am also pregnant with my fourth baby. I hope you continue the home birth trend with this baby. I am finally going to get to experience that with this baby. NO more hospitals. No more blazing lights, IV's, monitors, strangers coming in and out of the delivery room, etc...Maybe your family could come out the week of your due date to help? God bless you with a beautiful birth experience. I'm so excited for you guys. You two make awesome parents!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Yay! Now we have a Baby Dilly and a Baby Duggar!
    Madison Grace or Madelyn Grace!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I can understand how many people think it would be nice for Mackynzie to have a baby sister, but really, you shouldn't say "praying it's a girl." Though it's too early to tell, the baby's sex is already there. It has to do with the X and Y chromosomes which are decided at the moment or conception.
    I'm not trying to nag or troll anyone. PLEASE don't take it that way. I just wanted to educate.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Anna is a very pretty woman.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Wow-wee! Great news for the cute couple! They truly be outnumbered, but it looks like they can do it! I'm sure they will find a great way to do the birth in DC or even going back to AK. DC has been so good for them! It is really fun to see this family coming into their own more and more. Anna has morphed into a stalwart mother and wife since we were first introduced a few years back. Very encouraging!

    ***Side note, I would love to know how she and Josh plan to handle screen time/devices for their children, as well as how they are handing it for themselves

    ReplyDelete
  113. They have birthing centers. Easy transition to hospital if necessary yet homelike environment. They should also have friends or could actually hire a sitter. They don't have to have the baby at home for child care purposes.

    ReplyDelete
  114. congrats josh and anna

    ReplyDelete
  115. I just watched the episode where they got married. They sure have grown as a couple and Anna has really grown in confidence and come more into her own. To me that shows what a great marriage they have and how they have grown together. They seem to be able to laugh a lot and not take themselves too seriously, which I think is awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  116. For a girl, Mary, or any variation of it: Maria, Mariana, Maia, etc, and for a boy, Miles or Maximilian (Max)

    ReplyDelete
  117. Congrats on your newest blessing! It would be nice to have a girl so Mackynzie could have a sister. But God gives us what he sees fit for our families. Either way, he or she will be born into one of the most loving families in America. That baby is definitely a lucky little one. You can see the excitement and joy Mackynzie and Michael already have. Congratulations, once again!!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Congratulations! So happy for all of you. Many blessings♥

  119. So happy for them! Anna looks gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Mackynzie is 5 now, so she can be totally helping with the new baby. And maybe Jinger or Joy can move in with them to help. Jana seemed to be so exhausted in the episodes of the show, she probably would need rest from sewing ties for Jill's wedding and babysitting Anna's kids on their trips.

  122. Why are my posts not showing Ellie and Lilly?

    ReplyDelete
  123. Congratulation!!! As for names I would recommend Mathew or melody. I am thinking girl.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Why is everyone so insistent on saying Jana is being used by her family to watch the younger kids being forced to sew for Jill's wedding? If anyone has listened to Jana she enjoys doing it helping her mom teach whatever, she does get to do things she wants doesn't she ofuten go to retreats and instill in other young girls the joys of worshipping the Lord and of giving yourself to reach out and help others. I don't think she's being held back by Jim Bob bbc and Michelle,she has often stated she will court and get married when it's right for her. I'm sure she would be thrilled to help first time mom to be jill or sister in love anna when she has number four. Don't forget Jim Bob and Michelle often tell their children God first family second and yourself last. Jana will find a man when God finds its her time. Fingers not courting neither is John David or Joseph. And Josh was married when he was John David and Jana age. Don't worry about her she's just fine.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Why do fans insist in picking baby names anna and Josh already said they had names and I'm sure so do jill and derick I have a feeling it's going to be in honor off dericks dad

  142. Marilyn I agree completely & exactly how does one have a "built in babysitter" when this person doesn't even live with them? I've a DIL who's about to have her 2nd & it's simply a fact that she'll need someone to stay with the first & none of us feel "exploited"? I think it's ridicules & just more negativity by people who are jealous @Marilyn
