All fifty million members of the Duggar family traveled to NYC last month to announce that the matriarch of their child army, Michelle Duggar, was happy to be pregnant with her 20th child even though she had all kinds of health problems while carrying her 19th kid. Well, sadly, Michelle went in for a routine check-up today and her doctor was not able to find her baby’s heartbeat. Michelle and Jim Bob were then told that she suffered a miscarriage into her second trimester. Michelle gave the news to People:
“After the appointment, we came back home and told the children. We had just been talking about baby names last night and they were getting excited about naming a boy or a girl. It has been a real sad disappointment.”
I feel like my heart broke telling my children. They have all been so excited about this baby and looking forward to April coming around and having a new little one in our arms. That was the most difficult. The Lord is the giver of life and he can choose when that life is ready to go on and be with Him.”
Once the Duggar family finds out if she was having a boy or a girl, they are going to name the baby and hold a funeral service.
This is Michelle’s second miscarriage. She lost her baby during her second pregnancy because she was taking birth control pills at the time. That made Michelle swear off of birth control pills forever and leave her uterus situation up to God.
