"I've definitely been thinking about it and that's the one thing that's holding me back, honestly," said Lowell according to PEOPLE.

"Especially because they say if you've had postpartum once, you have a higher chance of getting it with your next.With Nova, I thought it was severe because I struggled with anxiety already and panic attacks and depression. So that is definitely the thing that scares me the most. I want to have a big family and have a lot of kids, but it's scary. It's definitely scary."

Both Baltierra and Lowell have had it pretty rough from their first appearance on the show. The two had to give their first daughter, Carly, up for adoption. That paired with hardships and struggles that followed have really taken their toll on the couple.

It will be interesting to see if the two decide to extend their family. It is possible that the next addition could sprout a string of happiness but only time will tell.
