Make way for more Duggars!

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of Tonitown, Ark., who have 18 children and one grandchild on the way, are expecting a new addition to their household – baby No. 19 will arrive in the spring.

"We are so thrilled," says Michelle, 42. "We just couldn't believe it is happening." Jim Bob, 44, agrees: "This never gets old. We are so grateful for each child. We are looking forward to our first grand baby and our 19th child."

Oldest son Joshua, 21 and his wife Anna, 21, are expecting daughter Mackynzie Renée next month, so she will be older than her new aunt or uncle.

"I think it is going to be awesome, it is going to be great," says Josh about the news that his parents are expecting. "We have been looking forward to the arrival of my little girl and to now get to celebrate for my parents, it's a wonderful thing."

Another Fun Pregnancy
The families often get to see one another and are looking forward to the babies' births.

"I love all of this, it is so fun," says Michelle. "Anna and I will have babies five months apart. My mother and my sister were pregnant at the same time and it was really wonderful. The kids were really close and still are. I have a nephew who grew up with me, we're just three months apart."

The Duggars live debt-free in a house they built themselves with their kids, whose names all begin with J: after Josh there are twins Jana and John-David, 19; Jill, 18; Jessa, 16; Jinger, 15; Joseph, 14; Josiah, 13; Joy-Anna, 11; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 10; Jason, 9; James, 8; Justin, 6; Jackson, 5; Johanna, 3; Jennifer, 2, and Jordyn-Grace, 8 months. Their lives are featured on TLC's 18 Kids and Counting, airing Tuesday nights.

Surprised This Time
Despite being pregnant 18 times before, Michelle says this pregnancy came as a shock, although her daughters wondered why she was eating more pickles than usual.

"I was wanting pickles and the older girls were saying, 'Mom, you only crave these at the very beginning of being pregnant, You kept it from us before, now tell us. Are you?'" Michelle says. "And I kept telling them I wasn't. I just wanted some pickles."

But when she couldn't lose weight on her diet, she became suspicious.

"I was in Weight Watchers with Jim Bob and I wasn't losing any weight," she says. "I couldn't figure it out. I was doing what I should. And the baby, who was nursing, was fussy. I kept thinking, 'This isn't right. She isn't teething, she doesn't have an ear infection. I'm not cheating on my diet, I should be losing weight.' Then, I put two and two together and wondered if I could possibly be pregnant."

She took out one of two tests she had in the house and it was immediately positive.

Renewed Marriage Vows
"I told Jim Bob and he couldn't keep it in, he was so excited," she says. "The kids were outside playing on a water slide and he gathered them together and had to share the news. There was all this screaming and yelling."

The Duggars recently renewed their wedding vows – they've been married 25 years and one month – and say that the ceremony was a wonderful way for their own children to understand the commitment of marriage.

"We got married when Michelle was 17 and I was 19," Jim Bob says. "We were married in the hallway of a church because at the time they had no sanctuary. There were plastic chairs and crepe paper. So, when we renewed our vows, we did it in that same hallway and we splurged to make bows out of a plastic white table cloth this time, but we still had plastic chairs. I think it is important to have the kids see that commitment themselves."

No Health Concerns
Michelle says that since she was 36 years old, her doctor has given her and Jim Bob pamphlets about prenatal testing since there is an increase of risk of health problems in babies with older mothers. But, she says they don't worry about those risks and don't take the tests.

"We know what could happen," she says. "We read through the information. If the Lord chooses to give us challenges along the way, we know His grace will be there, so we don't opt to do the testing."

As far as her own health, her doctor told PEOPLE when her last child was born that Michelle's health was excellent: "Some women are made to have babies, and Michelle is to the nth degree," ob-gyn Amy Sarver told PEOPLE in December. "She is in terrific health without any strain on her uterus."

Michelle says she's just glad for every day that she gets to enjoy being with her kids, even as she endures a 19th round of morning sickness.

"I'm feeling nauseous right now," she says. "And, I'm tired. I am happy for the feelings of morning sickness and I'm happy for every day I get to play with my kids. We don't know what tomorrow holds and so I try to enjoy every moment."

Another J-Name
Already, names are being discussed in the Duggar household: Jessa, 16, has printed up a list of J-names for boys and girls that have yet to be used by a Duggar, Michelle says.

"We'll hopefully find out whether it's a girl or a boy at 20 weeks," says Jim Bob. (Michelle is almost at the 12-week mark now.) "That will narrow the list down some."

And Jim Bob says he'd welcome a little assistance: "We'd love to hear from the readers at PEOPLE.com to come up with a special name for this child."

Of course I'm not serious - it's vile. The whole story makes me nauseous.

What disturbs me more is their obsession with naming all their kids with the same letter.

People like that should be banned from reproducing further.

I've been trying to come up with some baby names for them - maybe Jekyll if it's a boy and Jezebel if it's a girl.

They will most likely go for an even 20. In the meantime, they will have to rename their show 19 and counting...

They'll have kids as long as they can reproduce. They don't believe in any kind of birth control, so if they are still having sex into their fifties, then keep expecting more children :o

I think it's crazy that they choose to do it, but I do find their show very interesting :lol:

and people who insist on weird spellings for names, such as Mackynzie. Ugh!

Other possible names: Juterus, Juggar, Jimmenycricket or they could go for the names of children of famous tennis players: Jaden, Jaz, Jagger, Jada.

This is just GROSS!

Have you seen the clothes the girls wear? It's heinous.

What I find most upsetting about the whole thing is that none of the kids will ever have the FULL attention of the parents. I mean really, being a good parent is more important than humping like jackrabbits. What these morons are doing is depending on the older kids to look after the younger ones. I'm sure half of them were never really "children".

And I'm pretty sure at least ONE of the kids must have a rebellious streak. Hopefully he/she breaks away from this joke of a family and lives a life of their own.

UGH! I'm sorry, I keep thinking of the disgusting outfits the girls wear. And their hair-dos. *shudder* And can you imagine all the hand-me-downs? UGHHHH!

:eek:

But you are a freaking relic. And how awful for the first grandchild. The one thing most first grandchildren get is complete and utter adoration and attention from the doting grandparents. Michelle will be too busy letting her already cracked-as-hell nipples be sucked by the baby and Jim Bob will probably be too busy figuring out ways to hump Michelle and get her knocked up again.WTF kind of name is Jim Bob anyway? UGH.

Michelle Duggar Chats About Morning Sickness And Her In-House Organizer

Some say that Michelle Duggar is crazy. After all, being pregnant with her 19th baby, who's due in March 2010, isn't typical. But the 42-year-old, who herself is the youngest of seven siblings, seems to have everything under control. On her reality-TV show, 18 Kids And Counting on TLC, she exemplifies a remarkably stress-free mom, never letting anything get under her skin.

She talked to ParentDish by phone from her Arkansas home -- secreted away in her upstairs office -- about what life is like as a pregnant mom in a house of 20 and counting.

ParentDish: Congratulations! There must be a lot of excitement in the house right now.
Michelle Duggar: The children are doing their lessons now. Math, English, spelling, music.

PD: Who's running things while we're on the phone?
MD: My 16-year-old Jessa is the school coordinator. I think she's harder on them than I am. With her they have to get at least a B-plus or else they do it again. I'm more lenient; a low B or a C would not be horrible. Some come crying, "I have to repeat another lesson."

PD: How are you feeling?
MD: We are thrilled. I feel sick and tired a lot right now.

PD: How do you handle the morning sickness?
MD: I keep almonds around and protein and pretzels. It keeps it bearable. I don't throw up all the time. I just feel sick on and off all day long. I have a friend who's a doula and she told me to keep protein snacks handy, like beef jerky, cooked chicken in the fridge. It helps. Salty pretzels kind of help, so I keep pretzel sticks around. We all love pretzels, so I keep tons around. It's a favorite snack.

PD: How does it feel to know that your child will be younger than your grandchild?
MD: I am just amazed. Being 42, I was wondering if could still have another. That season of change is happening a bit, so I figured I would just enjoy hugging and loving on my grandbabies.

PD: Now that you're both pregnant at the same time, is the relationship with your daughter-in-law any different?
MD: Anna asked me some pregnancy questions early on and that was just a joy. Now she's asking me, "How are you feeling?" She was really sick every other day, so she can sympathize with me.

PD: How will this play out in the Duggar family?
MD: My mother and my sister got to experience the same phenomena. My mother was pregnant with me when my sister was pregnant with my nephew. I have a nephew and niece who are older than me, so I was an aunt before I was born! When I was younger I would point my finger and say to them, "Remember, I'm your aunt."

PD: Are you doing anything different for Baby No. 19?
MD: At this point I'm just trying not to feel sick. (Laughs.)

PD: Have you picked out the name yet?
MD: Not yet. Jessa gave me a list of name possibilities. She's my organizer. She said, "We gotta start thinking about this."

PD: So? What are your thoughts?
MD: Jim Bob (her husband) says we're open to suggestions on J-names. People can go on our Web site, duggarfamily.com and e-mail us at JimBob@afo.net with name suggestions.

PD: Any more kids after this one?
MD: We would love more. We're just so thrilled that God blessed us with another one. So, if he gives us more, we will gladly receive the gift.

PD: As an uber-fertile woman, do you have any advice for women trying to conceive?
MD: God is the one who's the giver of life and opens and closes the womb. I would cry out to him initially and ask him if he would be willing. We only think we have control but in reality he is the giver of life.

Love the Duggars? Got an idea on a J-name for the new baby? Type it into our Comments area and we'll pass along your suggestions to the family.

Apparently, they don't believe in sending their kids to college.

I just wiki-ed them, and that's what was stated. That, and their daughters are not allowed to have short hair (which is pathetic) or wear pants (even more pathetic). I'm pretty certain there are incestual relationships.
