    Can making babies even be fun for him anymore? At this point, it got to be like poking a glass of warm milk.

    It is my understanding that they follow the Quiverful movement, they are opposed to birthcontrol and view any baby as a gift from God. If she keeps having children? She is either gonna die in child birth or her body is just gonna give out one day

    From what I remember from obstetrics, a woman's body requires several years to fully recover from a single childbirth. The ideal time frame is four years... of course, this varies from woman to woman. Having so many children in succession is probably lowering her life span, since it requires significant bodily resources to create a child. I doubt she cares though.

    I'm not using this as a reason to say they shouldn't be having kids, just that it is still risky in the long term.

    So nobody is telling this woman that she's overdoing it. And she realizes that Jordan may be the last. She's not saying yes or no.

    If you watch the show you'll get the impression that mommy is the boss.
    I read something about she has had trouble in past finding doctors that will agree to being her doctor because a lot of the ones she saw feel as if she was at risk and did not think she should attempt to give birth yet again. Even via a c-section.

    Well obviously their fears were for not. Mrs. Duggar is fine and Jordan is fine.

    So it's all just happy happy.

    At least they are all by the same father which in these cases is not typical.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    So ignore the medical community who says having 18 children in 20 years is significantly shortening her life span? I'm not saying its wrong to have lots of kids, but that kind of irresponsibility certainly is. If she dies giving birth that family is ****ed.

    I found this on the Quiverful movement in Wikipedia;

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quiverfull

    I had never heard of the Quiverful movement, but I watched the program on TLC a couple times and the oldest son said they did not start having children right away after they first married. They waited at least 2 yrs before the first pregnancy, so maybe they didn't get the quiver right away.

    From reading this article, even the Catholics say you should only have as many kids as you can reasonably afford. How they expect their parishioners to not have these kids is the million dollar question, but I'm thinking abstinence.
