'19 Kids & Counting' Recap: Anna Duggar Dishes About Getting Pregnant With Twins!

19 kids and counting  josh and anna

This week, Anna Duggar took a pregnancy test and found out, to her disappointment, that she is NOT expecting her and Josh's fourth fifth additions to the family. I don't know about you, but I was maybe unhealthily focused on tuning in this week to find out if Anna and Josh would be welcoming a fifth Duggar-nugget into the fold. I'm unmarried, un-dating, and childless, but I would be lying if I didn't say I had my fingers crossed while we were waiting on the verdict. Once the news arrived, Anna had a theory about the negative test -- and it involved twins


But just because there's no new Duggar en route yet, don't count Josh and Anna down and out. While Anna admitted to being disappointed, she didn't seem that fazed. In fact, she speculated that maybe it was part of God's plan to give them a little space before the next baby ... in case it was twins! Ah! Well, multiples do run in the Duggar family, don't they? It wouldn't be the weirdest thing to happen.

While Josh seems welcoming to the idea of having more kids, I've got to say, his gusto doesn't match that of his wife -- which is funny, since she's the one poppin' 'em out! Josh would love to have more kids, but as many as his parents? Well, that remains to be seen. I liked his smile, and I had flashes of Josh Duggar, politician, and it was both frightening and believable. 

I wonder if it's hard to be surrounded by so many folks having babies all the time and to be mildly stressing about having your next one. I'm sure it's a different feeling than struggling to get pregnant at all, but it still can't feel great. You'd never know it from Anna's demeanor during the family's trip. And hey, who knows? Maybe the next gender reveal party will be for their next addition(s). 

How many children do you think Josh and Anna will end up having?
