post #61 of 156
According to the commercial the baby was born at 25 weeks.

It dosnt come on unitl the 31st no new shows until after that according to my dvr search.

For those of you with dvr to search the show is now called 19 KIDS AND COUNTING.

I'm looking forward to next weeks show. I can't believe they had the cameras there but I guess they didn't realize it would turn out the way it did or maybe they did, who knows. I'm sure it will be very emotional.

Me too, darcytrue. I just can't imagine how it would feel to have cameras catch all the emotions involved. I guess you get used to the cameras being there and just be yourself?

I really hope Josie is doing ok, and the rest of the family too.

I just got DVR so I am going to look for 19 Kids and Counting. Not sure if the guide goes out farther than a week at a time, but I will check.

Can't wait to see the show.

I'll have to set it to record. In a way I'm not that surprised they filmed it after having seen the episode where grandpa Duggar died. I know personally I couldn't believe they aired something so intimate in that one.

I think it is different because the crew is so close with the family, and it is always the same people on the crew. I am sure it was also very emotional and tough for the family. But as she was born what 7 weeks ago? Maybe they've been holding this until they knew more about how she would do long term. I am sure this has been so hard for their family.

I'm watching right now too and I'm totally expecting to cry before it's over.

I just saw the preview for the next one coming on Tue. too.

I didn't realize until I first saw the preview for tonight's show that Josie had been born after the gallstone news.

i just got done watching the Dugger Special Delivery and i was just amazed at how small little Josie was! she looked perfect in every way. so cute and WELCOME little Josie!

Michelle was so calm throughout the whole thing. she just amazes me!

i thought it was cool that they kept it 'life as normal' for the other dugger kids.

for me Josh has really growen up! he use to kinda creep me out, but he really seems to be more laid back now and i like that!

i cant wait to watch Tuesday! it will be little Josie's first christmas!

I cried for most of the episode - you could feel Michelle and Jim Bob's fear through the tv. I hope Josie is doing well today and will be home in the upcoming weeks.

Weird question, but why did Jill have to take charge? Was Jana already in El Salvador? Did I miss something they said?

I loved this episode! It was nice to see Jim-Bob caring so much about his wife (although I would smack my husband if he hovered so much lol), and it was also so sweet when Michelle finally got to see all her kids for the first time in so long. I really hope Josie continues to do okay.

I just re-programmed the DVR. 19 Kids & Counting. I didn't even think of that. Thanks for the heads up!

There is a picture on the TLC website of Michelle and Josie doing kangaroo care - absolutely adorable!

I watched it. I was hoping they'd just be able to quit the show completely. But since they haven't....I thought the special was respectfully done and explained a lot of things that people have been wondering about. I do think that the film crew may have become like part of the family to them, so having them come along for what they thought was a minor, fixable problem isn't so odd.

I think it's awesome that JB was able to stay with Michelle, but while they were still thinking it was just gallbladder stuff, he felt comfortable letting his older kids go on their long awaited trip. They probably all felt bad when things took a turn for the worse right after they left. It was so beautiful to see how deeply everybody cared for Michelle and the baby. Even Josh was *sooo* toned down when he got the call from his dad that Josie had been born.

Oh man. I warned my bf a WEEK in advance that i was claiming the tv at 8 Pm last night, and I pretty much cried off and on through the whole thing. her baby was due just a couple weeks I think before our dd is due, and even he was shocked at how tiny she was. But she was beautiful! You could just feel how worried they were. I totally cried when I saw the kids' reactions when they finally got to see her.

I'm still in awe at how their family and even the kids pulled together during a crisis. They have done such a good job raising them.

I can't remember which of the older girls it was, bit she was talking about how they are usually so aware of and involved in Michell's labors that it was weird to just get a phone call when and hear that Josie had been born. It occurred to me that those girls have probably seen more natural births than many OBs.

I could not believe how absolutely tiny Josie was. It was terrifying watching such a tiny, perfect baby gasping so hard and knowing that she should still be safe and comfy inside her mom. I was glad that I already knew she had survived.

I loved how he said "how about you mommy, are you ok?"

I saw the episode this morning of the birth of Josie. What a tearful show. I felt so sorry for the other children that they had to live through it as well. I really hope this opens their eyes that maybe it's not a good idea to keep having children at this point. Imagine if they would have lost Michelle? Jim Bob would have all those children to raise. Thank goodness they were both okay!!
