Ok so experts say that those who have a lot of kids seem to be able to have more at
an older age. But why? Does egg quality not diminish over time because of the constant pregnancies?

Probably because she's had a billion kids, her body doesn't know what it's like to not be pg?!

I understand that sentiment totally! Still gotta hang in there though. If she can do it, we can do it.

Maybe, but I think some people are just more prone to becoming pregnant

It is great Dyan! And you have a beautiful family. I just wish that she would share some of her "genetics" with me :) When you try your heart out and never even have one it can really be heartbreaking. Good luck, I hope that you have as many babies as your genetics will allow. Baby dust:)

I would have a problem with it if they couldn't care for them, but they obviously can.

The Duggars are a pretty amazing family actually. From what I have seen they are just the type of family that you want to see have that many kids. I mean if anyone should have that many kids, that environment seems pretty ideal. Imagine how much love there is in that family. They seem to all get along very well too.
