There's a lot of weird stuff that goes on in the Duggar household, but one of the strangest things that actually makes it to TV is the family's wicked step-sibling-esque disregard for eldest daughter Jana.

During a recent episode of 19 Kids and Counting, fans expressed their outrage at Jana's treatment by the rest of the clan, as the 26-year-old was forced to do endless prep work for Jill's wedding while the other Duggars relaxed and socialized.

Now, a source close to the family tells Radar Online that Jana is exhausted from a lifeitme of helping to raise her siblings

"It's absolutely ridiculous how much the family makes Jana and the older siblings do," the insider says. "Jim Bob and Michelle have totally transitioned a lot of their parental responsibilities on to her."

"She looks so tired and worn down sometimes. You can't help but feel bad for her, having to take on that responsibility at such a young age. It's like she's been a parent ever since she was 13!"

Yikes. We can't imagine having 18 siblings, let alone being tasked with raising them. It's enough to make you hope there's some truth to the rumor that Jana is trying to break away from her family.

Watch 19 Kids and Counting online to bear witness to the Job-like suffering of the eldest Duggar daughter.

You know Jessa, and Joseph, and Josie, and Jim Bob...but do you recall the most potentially sane Duggar of all?

Yes, we're talking about the eldest daughter of the child-hoarding clan, Jana. While her sisters are out their gettin' freaky in accordance with strict Duggar rules of courtship, Jana remains terminally un-side-hugged.

There are rumors that Jana is forbidden to date and forced to stay home to help tend to the other children, thus rendering her an old maid at 24.

This, of course, has prompted rumors that Jana is planning to break free from Duggar domination. Some believe she's refused to become a baby factory for any of the suitors that Jim Bob has chosen for her and has thus been left with two choices: help raise the rest of the herd or set out on her own.

She's reportedly taking online classes with an eye toward obtaining a nursing degree, but unfortunately, there's been no indication that she plans to distance herself from her domineering parents.

Jana's been pushed to the sidelines throughout the latest season of the Duggar's reality show but you can watch 19 Kids and Counting online to see the brightest of the JDs show off her spark.

If you were a reality star and one of 19 kids, would you expect to get a hell of a wedding gown?

Now I don't want to tell any tales, but Jill Duggar isn't supporting her local Arkansas seamstresses. What kind of message does that send to her neighbors?

She's busy, busy, busy with all the wedding planning and yet still takes time (as well as some sisters and her mom) to Washington, D.C. to find the most important dress she'll ever own. Quite a trek for a gown. Makes alterations and last minute changes a bit more challenging.

Elsewhere on 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 6 the groom to be took Ben, Jim Bob and John-David our for a camping adventure. He can't see the dress before the wedding anyway. Maybe that's why the girls went to Washingon, D.C.! To ensure there is no way Derick will see the dress early.

Those Duggars are crafty buggers, right?

When Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard got married back in June, the world naturally assumed that they'd follow in the footsteps of Jill's parents and start making babies ASAP.

After all, per the Duggar courtship rules, Jill and Derick weren't even allowed to kiss before they got married, so it stands to reason they'd be eager to consummate.

But some 19 Kids and Counting fans now believe that Jill got pregnant too early and that she and Derick were, in fact, gettin' it in on the sly.

They claim that Jill was clearly pregnant before she got married as her latest Instagram pic lists her at 13 weeks and one day pregnant.

That would put the conception date at over a week before the Dillards wedding on June 21.

That initially sounds like a ruh-roh, but Jill is denying that she had pre-marital sex and her story holds up:

The date of conception is calculated not by determining the day on which the intercourse took place, but rather as the first day of the woman's last normal menstural cycle, which could be several weeks before the kid is actually conceived.

So, there ya go. We all learned something today. Watch 19 Kids and Counting online at TV Fanatic for more valuable tidbits.

Ahhh. There's nothing like a wedding to get the ole shopping juices flowing!

What are the Duggar's shopping for on 19 Kids and Counting Season 8 Episode 4? Well, Jill and Derick are on the hunt for wedding bands. Just how much time and thought goes into choosing the band, anyway?

If you ever hope to move in with the Duggars, you'd best prepare for some work. When Ben learns he can move into their guesthouse, he discovers there is a catch. He has to complete a series of tasks first; chores, if you will.

Does Ben make it into the guesthouse or does he fail at his tasks? Do Jill and Derick make a successful purchase?

What's a season premiere with the Duggars worth if not some life-altering news? Nothing!

Jill Duggar is the first of the girls to get married. Awwwww. She has just months to head down the aisle and over -- get this -- 1,000 guests to consider! Money must grow on trees for this family to put on that kind of shindig. Understandably, she's overwhelmed.

Taking some of the pressure off, Jim Bob calls the family together in 19 Kids and Counting Season 9 Episode 1 to clean up a house he's hoping the newlyweds will inhabit. What does cleaning up mean, in this case?

But that's not all! Jim Bob also gathers the extended family (Dillards and Seewalds in attendance) for a Mother's Day meal and proceeds to make an announcement suggesting they need to make room for more. What?!
