'Doubling Down With the Derricos': Karen addresses anxiety over 15th pregnancy
With a doctor's visit coming up, Karen explained that she felt like she was trapped in a box due to her trauma
If you've been keeping up with 'Doubling Down With the Derricos', it is clear that Karen and Deon care deeply for all 14 of their children. The parents focus on hands-on learning when it comes to their kids and are raising each of them to be opinionated individuals.
It also comes as no surprise that they use all the help they can get. After all, it is two of them up against 14 kids. Having GG and Eric around certainly makes things a lot easier. But now, with the South Carolina move in talks, with the family planning on spending six months in Vegas and six months in South Carolina, there might be some serious lifestyle changes. While the kids aren't particularly thrilled about the move, the family's next move remains uncertain. And to top it all off, Karen is pregnant with baby no. 15.
While pregnancies are often celebrated, it looks like for Karen; there is a lot of anxiety around it. Although she is no stranger to it, Karen has expressed that her past two miscarriages have left her with a lot of anxiety around this pregnancy. It was why she waited to be sure before she even broke the news to Deon. With her nausea and light-headedness kicking in, Karen is also dealing with the trauma of her miscarriages.
She spoke to Deon about it and explained that she left as though she was trapped in a box. No matter which corner she tried to hide in, it felt like there was always some negativity looming around her. While GG was not the biggest fan of the news earlier on, she told the couple that she would be there at their beck and call no matter what. However, Karen has to yet break the news to her own mother.
In the preview of the upcoming episode, Karen is seen going to the doctor for an ultrasound, but her fear around her pregnancy has not reduced in the slightest. Combined with the move to South Carolina, the family's upcoming business and her kids not wanting to make the move, it seems as though she is undoubtedly under a lot of stress during this difficult. Here's hoping she and baby no 15 are doing okay.
Season 3 of 'Doubling Down With the Derricos' airs on TLC on Tuesdays at 10 pm ET.
