Someone mentioned how the uterus was really messed up from having a lot of kids, and I said that I wondered how octomom's was, then, since she had 8 at one time, not even in separate pregnancies. And I wonder if here looks worse than the Duggars.


Have the Duggars ever had c-sections?

And that is truly the sad thing about both these cases. Like others have mentioned there is NO WAY those kids get the proper attention and affection they need or deserve.

I did not realize she also had c sections. Scary that she believes it's "God's Will" to mess up her body so badly.

Exactly. There's no way.

Yep. She had c-sections with her last two, one set of twins (89 or 90), and another single birth in between.

Wow, so this one will probably be a csection then too? I heard that he safest option is to have csections I you've had them for previous births, I forgot why the doctors suggest and usually do that, but I heard it on I didn't know I was pregnant.

It depends. My sister was told she had a high chance of having a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarian). There are a lot of factors: age, number of kids, reason for the first c-section(s), spacing between children, etc. Since her kids are so close together, the doctor will probably recommend a c-section.

Yeah, especially when you take note that the birthrate for Hispanic people is two to two and a half times that of other ethnic groups, and I would hazard a guess that it is also motivated by religion.

I wasn't being sarcastic; I think they're selfish idiots, regardless. I am genuinely curious how different people would react if the Duggars were from a different race, ethnicity, religion, country, etc.

No I didn't take it for sarcasm. I am just very curious myself.

I've pondered that question myself but have not yet come to any sort of conclusion. On one hand it's nice to see criticism of a lily-white family such as the Duggars since it means that race is not as much a factor as the pure ridiculousness of it, but at the same time I realize that if this were a black or hispanic family, especially in regard to this forum, people would not be so quick to judge because they would be in a 'protected class'. I'm just all over the place with this, but in the end I simply disregard race entirely and approach it merely from a quantitative perspective.

They lost the baby. While I am not a fan of the Duggars, I do feel for them. Any miscarriage and death of a child is devasting and sad. I wish she would take this as a sign that her body has been through too much trauma from being constantly pregnant.

I am sorry they miscarried, but I think at 45 you should not be trying to create babies, they should go on the pill.

That's against their religion. They won't stop until Mrs. Duggar dies from complications. It is the lord's will, after all.

I honestly don't know much about them, other than that they are part of the Quiverfull faith. I wish they didn't have a TV show, because that religion is reprehensible and shouldn't be "mainstreamed" in any way.

They are not quiverfull and have publicly renounced the movement on several occasions.

Who needs sleep when we've got love?
Who needs keys when we've got clubs?
Who needs please when we've got guns?
Who needs peace when we've gone above?

The lord giveth and the lord taketh away.

I actually do feel sorry for them, as I do for anyone who allows religion to make them go against their own health and happiness.

Why did I think they were? Am I thinking of another family?

Possibly?

The ONE thing that I can give the Duggars credit for is that they freely admit that the size of ones family should be up to that family, and their choice to not use BC is a "personal conviction".

I actually like their show. Despite their crazy religious convictions, gender essentialism, and general nonsense; they really seem like nice people.
