  61. I watch it earlier this morning around 9:00 am.I knew it was going to be a girl because the already have two boys and it would be fair for Mackynzie to have a little sister to play with. Congraulations Josh and Anna. I am so happy for you guys!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am so excited for Anna that she is getting her baby princess! Yay! The cupcakes were such a cute way to announce it, something that everyone could participate in. The pink box kind of gave it away,it should have been packed in neutral color.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love the show, but I am sorry, a Gender Reveal,is NOT a "Big Announcement" that should be riling up fans of the show. If they were doing a Gender Reveal, they can just announce that they will be revealing the Gender, not say that they are "making a big announcement!" Is this a way of trying to get attention for Annas pregnancy since attention is on Jill's? In my opinion Anna should start considering an Epidural painkiller during Labor, to avoid those agonizing hours of pain we have seen 3 times. The Duggars should not declare a "Big Announcement" for a simple gender reveal ever again. That is reserved for Engagements, Courtships and Pregnancy Announcements!!

    1. @Marlene Young,
      I am about to give birth for the 9th time. I have NEVER had a pain killer at all during my labours. And i have never had a c section and i have never had a dr deliver any of my babies. Now i realise not all women are that fortunate and everyone has a different level of tolerance for pain.
      That being said,an epidural for a healthy woman in normal labor is not needed. An epidural while numbing the pain not only puts the baby at risk, but draws out the labor,making it longer. And causes problems at pushing stage as the mother has a hard time feeling the contractions. It also puts her at higher risk of a c section and makes for a longer recovery time for her and baby. She has proven she is capable of natural birth. So just leave her be. But i agree, that was hardly a 'big announcement'. Phooey!

      Delete
    2. Re: epidurals. They can be very good things and I am glad there is option to have them but unfortunately when you opt to have one you have to give things up like the ability to move freely, you need a catheter instead of going to the bathroom on your own and you can't feel when you are pushing and can sometimes cause unnecessary tearing. It can slow things down causing the need for pitocin. These things can make recovery much more difficult. Sometimes it can also make the baby sleepy and there can be nursing problems. Its a trade off. Birth is a difficult but Anna is not traumatized by them. I don't at all judge moms who choose pain killers during birth but I hope there can be more understanding for why many women (including me) have also chosen to go natural when possible. Showing births on TV can be more traumatizing to the audience than the mom. She after all gets the baby and all those great hormones that come after. What's most important is that a woman gets the birth she wants and needs for her and baby to be healthy. Anna has chosen what she prefers. She's not forced.

    3. Just because you do not consider the gender of a baby does not mean that the Duggars shouldn't. Each woman should be able to give birth exactly how they want without judgement.

  64. How wonderful a little girl, i bet mom and Mackynzie are really happy to not be out numbered( at least for now) lol.God Bless hope all is going well.

  72. Lily and Ellie do you know for sure that this is the big announcement?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  73. Lily and Ellie,
    Just out of curiosity, why do you always say Anna is due "around" July 10? Is that not her actual due date? Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I had had a feeling since they announced Anna's pregnancy that it would be a girl, so I'm just tickled pink right now!!!

    As for names along the M theme... Mary, Melissa, Melanie, McKenna, Michaela.

    No video unfortunately. But from the other comments I gather it's a girl. If the stick with the "m" theme.. I suggest the name Morgan.

  76. Blank where video should be. This has been the case several times. Is it my phone, maybe? Disappointing.

  81. Josh and Anna's baby name vote: I think Melissa MaryAnne Duggar. that covers a new name for the individual; honors Grandma Duggar, (who has been sadly ignored) and Anna herself...anyoe agree:

    Every blessing to you all on your wonderful news. Take care of yourself Anna and try and rest as much as possible!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Yay, I had a feeling that it was a girl. Her name will probably be Meredith, Michelle, Mary Anne (would be after her great grandma and her mom Anna), Melissa, or Madison. But how unexcited can they seem over it? I mean, I realize that this has to be scripted since Josh basically comes out and says that they've already found out what it is and are using the cupcakes to tell the viewers, but you think Anna and Mackynzie would at least show a little more excitement over another girl. Maybe there was something more to the actual reveal to Josh and Anna filmed for the show that they're not letting onto yet. There has to be--they had a cake from Buddy Valastro presented to them on the Today Show for Mackynzie, a skywriter for Michael, and even their pastor announcing Marcus's gender is pretty cool even though it's kind of low key compared to the others. It'd be a little sad if this is all #4 gets.

    Also, I tend to agree that they should've just come right out and said they'd be announcing the baby's gender. The way they made the big news sound, it made it seem like Jessa was pregnant, someone else had started a courtship, or even that Michelle was pregnant again...

    ReplyDelete
  89. So excited that it's a girl, it's about time, yea!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Meredith, she did ask..?
    Miriam?
    Mae?
    Or another letter name.
