On the other hand, I'm glad this show exists, only because I don't know how some of these people would tell their loved ones if they didn't have this show.
The episodes where the women don't want to reveal a second pregnancy because they already have one child and live at home, and have no job just seem like really bad situations that kind of bum me out.
The bikini model who didn't want to tell anyone, and swore she would never tell her model friends must have forgotten that she was going to be on TV. A better way to do hide the fact that you had another child would be not to go on this show.

The woman who had a 2nd by the married guy, what was she thinking?

And if family and friends truly are "in the dark" about the pregnancy, they can't say what they'd really like to because all America (or at least the few of us) will be watching.

Forty years old and preggo by a kid who's not even 20, yet? That whole situation was just one hot mess. And, to top it off, he was someone she worked with. Meanwhile, she's a single Mom to two other kids who are not much younger than the baby daddy. I'd like to know how drunk she was when she crawled into the sack with him. Really.....there's no way she could have been sober. Then, she gets him a job which he ends up losing partly because of his obvious immaturity, then he gets locked up and as icing on the cake, she tries to bail him out. I thought to myself, "Grow a spine, lady!". No Dad around at all would be a thousand times better than that punk.
The 31 year old blonde lady that lived with her folks ended up having THE most beautiful little boy. He was just perfect. I am glad her hot tempered Dad took the situation a whole lot better that she thought. Hopefully, it will mellow him down some so he isn't so OCD.

I stumbled upon this by accident and this show is like a car wreck, I can't turn away!
The lady who had 5 boys and wanted desperately to have a baby girl made me sick. So you mean to tell me you are literally broke and can't even take care of the 5 kids you have now but you really think having another kid is cool...because you want a baby girl? I'm sorry but...no.
I'm sure I'm going to hell but her tearfully trying to smile at the sonogram photo of baby boy number six made me laugh.
I forced my dad to watch this with me during the Thanksgiving marathon and he noticed that most of the pregnant mom's were scared to tell the people who would actually be financially supporting the child, like their parents or spouses.

Most of them suspect the woman in question is pregnant, anyway so some of the reveals are kind of anticlimactic.
I'll take it a step further and say that most of those on the receiving end of the reveals seem to have already been informed of the pregnancy beforehand, off-camera. The people in question are not good enough actors to convincingly pull off the shock and surprise intended - they sound like third-graders reciting their lines in the school play. I also think that if we were seeing all 'true' reveals, there'd be quite a bit more cursing and super-angry reactions.
The one that drove me absolutely insane was Amy, the immature 40-year-old with eight kids who found herself pregnant with her ninth at the same time her 20-year-old daughter was also expecting. Only the youngest of her children was living with her - the rest had been farmed out to their respective dads (I got the impression that they were received grudgingly by them) and some of her teenagers were actually out on their own, all because she couldn't afford to keep them with her. Her financial troubles were such that one month she found she couldn't afford her birth control, and whoops - there was baby #9. (I don't suppose abstaining until she could afford BC again occurred to her.) For some reason she was utterly fixated on what her pregnant daughter's reaction would be - and the pregnant daughter's main concern seemed to be that her thunder was being stolen, since their pregnancies were only about a month apart. Nobody seemed terribly bent out of shape about the rest of the kids, whose childhoods have been so dramatically affected by their mom's poor decision-making. Her husband appeared to be somewhat younger than she, and he barely spoke throughout the entire episode. One wonders what in the hell he was thinking of, making another baby with this woman. I suspect he's not much of a thinker.
It is interesting how rarely public assistance is mentioned on the show, though given the circumstances depicted for many of the women, they must surely be receiving some. A deliberate move by the producers?
