    Default 18 kids... (children mentioned)

    I watched the Today Show this morning and the Duggar family was on there (from 18 Kids and Counting). Is it bad that I was mad at her for being pregnant a 19th time? Seriously, 19 kids? I realize that I would not want that many, but why can't I just have one?

    Finallyyyy someone with the same frustration...I don't wish any harm for her children (or future children) but geez you would think that if SHE, at her age can get pregnant (she's having her 19th child in march btw) WHY can't people like me just get pregnant and have ONE child?

    Default m/c ment

    They used birth control once and ened up getting pregnant and had a m/c, so they thought it meant God was angry for using birth control. WTF? She has had on loss with 19 kids and I have one bio child and 7 losses. Where is the fairness in that. I know it just rubs salt in your wounds. Now the oldest son is married and expecting a baby.
    Grr..... I feel your pain. I do not wish any ill will but it does not seem fair. Those babies must just fall out by now!!

    I do not wish them any harm either, but I feel some jealousy as well....I know there is a reason she has been blessed with that many kids, but it's not a reason I understand.

    I enjoy watching their show but will admit that now that Michelle is due with #19 I am having mixed emotions. I was due in April and feel like if I continue watching, that I will be watching what should be happening to me.

    I think no one is wrong feeling the way they do. I feel the same way. I get so frustrated and jealous seeing her pregnant with her 19th child and having 18 healthy kids. She keeps saying "if it is God's will." Will it be God's will when her uterus ruptures and she hemorrhages. I don't want anything bad to happen to her, but enough is enough at times. She just annoys me in general though, although I continue to watch the show. She acts like everything is so "perfect", but IRL you know with 18 kids things don't go perfectly. Ok, enough on my rant about the Duggars.

    They annoyed the heck out of me BEFORE my m/c last week, and I am even more annoyed now. I have a 20 month old, so have been blessed with a child, but I just think the Duggars are irresponsible. I haven't actually watched the show, so maybe I'm wrong...we had this discussion on my daughter's birth board when her 18th was born...and I heard so much about how the children are so "well-managed" by the older siblings. "Managed"? Really? To me, that isn't what parenting is all about. And, I just don't feel that having 19 biological children is a responsible decision...for her body's sake, for the children's sake, or for the sake of our overpopulated world.

    I feel the same way. I don't wish harm on her kids or anything but when will it be our turn. I have had 3 miscarriages with 3 IVF attempts and still no baby in my arms. She lays down to take a nap and boom shes pregnant. God must have a sense of humor but I am not getting it.

    I actually love that show and wish them no ill harm. I like them better than the other large family shows that TLC has because they have to much drama. But I have always wonder why my Husband and I have been struggling to have our first child after 8+ years of marriage and she can just keep getting pregnant so easy. I mean she makes it look so Easy and the only wish my husband and I have is to finally have our first after 4+ years (by the time we get pregnant and give birth) after so many Miscarriages. Sometimes things just happen in life that cant be easily explained...
