Teen Mom OG Recap: Who Wants Another Baby ... and Who Can't Have One?

by at .  Updated at .

Last night on an all-new Teen Mom OG Season 4 Episode 3, Amber Portwood made a surprising reveal that caught everyone off guard.

Meanwhile, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra spent the bulk of this installment debating the future of their family. What did they decide?

We begin with Amber, who threw a birthday party for daughter Leah with the help of Matt Baier ... and Gary Shirley and Kristina Anderson.

Indiana's own Modern Family, are we right?

Things are going so well between them compared to years past that Gary actually told Amber that she and Matt should have a baby.

Yes, this is the same Gary who confronted her about the fact that Matt Baier has nine kids by seven women she doesn't know about.

Clearly relations have improved between Portwood and her ex, but Gary's suggestion unexpectedly opened up a whole new can of worms.

“I can’t,” Amber said, and dropped it, but later told producers she was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder.

The long and short of it? Amber Portwood will likely remain on serious medication for the rest of her life to combat those mental conditions.

Those drugs can harm fetus, but she couldn't go off the drugs because the consequences are too severe, so new babies are off the table.

That's a tough, tough situation, but Amber and Matt - for all people say about them - were remarkably composed, positive and forward-looking.

Farrah Abraham, meanwhile, is none of those things.

She announced that she was going to pack and move in the same day to San Diego, California, because of her nosy neighbors in Texas.

Despite the fact that her daughter has a whole life, and Farrah owns a frozen yogurt shop, furniture store and children’s boutique in Texas.

“I don’t make bad choices,” Farrah insisted.

No, girl. Of course you don't. Not a one.

Abraham even told her father later Michael that she is in fact moving to the Golden State, though we're not holding our breath. Why?

Because we know she loves the drama.

Come on. This is a girl who gifts her mother a noose on camera. You think she wants to lead a quiet life away from prying eyes? Nah, bruh. 

Meanwhile, in Michigan, Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra threw a birthday party for daughter Nova, but their mind was on their next child.

Tyler's was, at least. Catelynn Lowell's battle with postpartum depression after giving birth to Nova in 2015 has been very well documented.

Beyond the PPD issue, which is serious, she also has a long-acting, reversible contraceptive device implanted, so that's a consideration.

Finally, Maci Bookout was actually trying to get her son Bentley to be more interested in spending time with his own dad, Ryan Edwards.

Yes, we've reached the point where Ryan is actually putting in work, and Bookout is on good enough terms with Edwards to be receptive.

If only it was that easy, though. You see, dude has been MIA for so long that Bentley's gotten used to that and now thinks this is weird.

Obviously, Ryan’s parents blamed Maci for Bentley’s absence at Thanksgiving without realizing that he himself had chosen not to go.

Ryan, too, complained that he thought Maci was acting like a “punk” by keeping Bentley, calling it "unfair'" to girlfriend Mackenzie Standifer.

Does he have a point?

Yes and no. Eh, mostly no.

Whose fault, at the end of the day, do you think the little boy's indifference toward Ryan is? Edwards ought to check the nearest mirror.

“If Bentley wanted to go with him, I’d let him in a heartbeat, but I’m not going to make him do it just to make Ryan feel better!” Maci vented.

She's right. Ryan made this bed and now he has to lie in it, because while he is putting forth a lot more effort lately, it's very long overdue.

You can't fix years of being an absent d-bag overnight. Just keep doing what you've been doing and building the relationship, Ry Guy. 

Good things come in time.
