The Duggars are looking to add #20 to their ever growing family!

Michelle and Jim Bob recently visited a fertility specialist in Little Rock, Arkansas. "We would love more children if God saw fit to give us more, I just want to make sure that I am ready to catch a baby if that would happen," Michelle Duggar told the Today Show this morning.

“If I am in that season of life where we’re not able to have any more, then I’m fine, I ‘m happy with that. But if there are things physically I need to know, that I need to do, healthwise just to be ready to catch a baby if God saw fit to give us one.”

While my husband went outside to smoke his last cigarette for the evening, I climbed the stairs and readied myself for bed.
