Couple want to try for Baby Number 20
How many children is enough?

TLC is home to a whole host of guilty pleasure reality shows. From Toddlers and Tiaras, Cake Boss and Say Yes To The Dress to My Five Wives and also, 19 Kids and Counting

Nineteen! That is a lot of kids! My body feels very tired thinking of 19 pregnancies. But The Duggars are devout Independent Baptists who don't believe in contraception rather letting God decide the size of their family. Now each to their own, and I wholly believe that people should be allowed to believe and practice their religion freely. But 19 not only is 19 pregnancies a lot for one body to handle, so are 19 children. 

Their eldest child is 26 years old with 3 kids of his own and their youngest is 4 years old. After their last pregnancy in 2011, Michelle Duggar suffered a miscarriage. Now 3 years later the 47-year-old and her husband have been to see a high-risk pregnancy doctor to see if another pregnancy is viable if "God saw fit" to bless them with another child.
