The Ups & Downs of the Duggar Family

Originally posted 05/22/2015 09:20PM

Of the 2,460 people who live in Tontitown, Arkansas, none have made quite as many headlines as the 19-plus – and counting – in the Duggar family.

Since Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar invited cameras into their lives in 2008, viewers have seen the TLC stars through courtships, new additions and no shortage of controversy. Most recently, eldest son Josh Duggar spoke out in response to reports that he was once accused of molesting five underage girls as a teen.

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably, for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret," Josh, who resigned from his position at the Family Research Council as a result of the accusations becoming public, told PEOPLE in a statement. TLC has pulled 19 Kids and Counting from its schedule amid the reports.

19 Kids and Counting Recap: Josie, 5, Has a Medical Crisis and Derick Dillard Takes Parenting 101

Originally posted 04/28/2015 10:20PM

Born at just 25 weeks old, 5-year-old Josie Duggar has made great strides since she came into the world weighing in at just over a pound.

However, on this week's episode of 19 Kids and Counting, she suffered a medical crisis when she began seizing out of nowhere.

Also, Josh put Derick Dillard through Parenting 101 as he and Jill await the birth of their first child, and the remaining Duggar girls – that is, minus the married-off Jill and Jessa – renovated their bedroom. We also learned that when Jessa said she wasn't a great cook – despite cooking lessons in Italy during her honeymoon with Ben – she truly meant it.

As Jessa Seewald awaits the birth of her first child with husband Ben, she's making it a priority to stay fit and keep healthy.

When she learned that she was expecting – on their first wedding anniversary, no less – Jessa tells PEOPLE that one of the first things on Ben's mind was, " 'What does it mean for your workouts? Let's adjust them for pregnancy.' "

Because they're both concerned about her potentially straining herself, says Jessa, "I'm just trying not to overdo it right now. I am still working out, but not trying to break any records."
