Can someone watching on the east coast try and catch the name of the midwife and post it here? I want to check her credentials.

Good grief, this is another two-hour show. I don't want to drink as much as I'd have to to be able to tolerate it in one sitting.

It appears to be a tie-in to Diana Vuolo's venture, Swan4Kids. JinJer pimped out the organization on their blog and referenced tonight's episode. 

zzzzzzzzzzz

Derick, Jill, and I are watching. ?Who else? 

I’m watching people shopping for really expensive big-ass RVs on another channel. It’s way ahead of the Duggars in entertainment value. Some of the shoppers are funny and none are cringeworthy.

Miss Lucy is all I’ve got so far. Street address is 167 or at least starts with 167.

Of course Joe and Kendra live on Duggar property.  JB and Michelle want to keep them as close as possible - can't have any more escape like Jing.

Is a finger stick supposed to be instead of a glucose tolerance test? I mean I thought she was about due for one but all they did was a finger stick which Joy whined about. Her labor must have been fun.

Thanks, I got a hit: Lucy Ferguson. She's legit and actually has some certified skills beyond the typical CPM.

wonder if we will get to see her labour and delivery... she did end up having a hospital birth due to complications didn't she? I'm so over seeing these pregnancies and relationships move so slowly on the show when in real life they move so quickly.  Guess they need to draw out each story line as much as possible.

I'm all for eating leftovers but really Josiah? You want to impress your new girlfriend by throwing in your sister's leftovers and serving mouldy guac?  I think we know why his last courtship didn't work out.

Joe and Kendra's house is cute, so what happened to Joy and whats his name? Their house looks like hot mess, so much for his flipping skills, maybe he should hire Jana.

Wonder if Joe is  setting up a security alarm system so Ma and Pa Dugg, Howlers can't just show up  at the front door....

Maybe put up an electric fence hooked up to a few car batteries.... to discourage drop in visits....

I actually thought the nursery reveal was a cute way to announce the pregnancy, but everyone's reaction was so... blah. I think Kendra's parents were even slightly horrified it happened so quickly. 

I thought the exact same thing - her parents did not seem as excited as you'd expect for first time grandparents - perhaps they also didn't appreciate being told with the entire Duggar crew in tow.

Josiah's "cooking" demo just proves how badly these kids were raised. Cleaning out the fridge for your girlfriend? As a first meal you cooked for her? Sure food poisoning is a real bonding experience.

A rail base for that bed would cost about $50 and take a half hour to get situated.  These two remind me of broke couples moving into their  first apartment in the 70s when it was all the rage to let everyone know how broke you were. They just need beads in the doorway and a water bed. 

 

They make these things called tweezers for splinters... that knife looked huge.

What the hell was up with that pile of crap wood on that counter that Austin did? It seriously looked like shit.

Jeremy's mom's reaction was so sweet.  Unlike the the Duggar reactions like they scored a point.  She was so happy  and moved, glad they told his parents first in a nice quiet family moment.  Oh and it was nice seeing Jeremy and his mom hugging (a real hug not a side hug). 

I actually teared up. It was so sweet. Not some toothy yee haw shit eating grin.

What a nice non profit Diana has.

Whew.  I’m certainly no Martha Stewart, but goddamn, that island/counter!  When I tell you that I could have done better, trust me, I’m not complimenting myself.  I am a truly crappy carpenter and handyman!  I get that the whole reclaimed wood trend is in right now, but I’m pretty sure it’s not supposed to look that shitty.  It is definitely amateur hour at Austin’s hovel house.  Poor Joy.  What terrible conditions in which to be pregnant.

DOES ANYBODY HERE BELIEVE THAT?!  (My Monday night is made right there.)

That young woman at the benefit has a beautiful voice.  

I was happy that the Voulo’s found out first. Jeremy and Jinger are much more balanced on the treatment of their parents. 

So the leg jumpers have gotten their wish and will get to see more of the other Duggars this season?

Jessa continues to ask every couple if they are pregnant.

Also, he notes that she is gluten intolerant then he served her a flour tortilla.  IMO, he is smugger junior.

Please do not insult hard working nice people who live in a trailer park. They are definitely way above the Duggars in a lot of ways.

Bet Amy was excited to be back on TV but probably disappointed it was only for a few seconds and she barely got to say  anything. Don't see this album make the billboard charts.

Oh my goodness, Brianna is so lovely and brave.  I could never have gotten up in front of everyone like that, much less to discuss such a tough topic, so my hat’s off to her.  And she’s singing one of my favorite songs!

No offence to Austin, but was that kitchen island made from discarded wood pallets? Joy can look forward to endless slivers once that is installed in her kitchen.

So Josiah was checking ingredients he was cooking with for gluten, but didn’t even think it might be in the random leftovers he threw into the same pan with the other food?

Joy and Austyn look they live in a van in someone’s drive way a la Vint and Naomi on Mama’s Family.  Oh wait, they practically do.
