Michelle Duggar Has A Miscarriage

For the second time in her life, Michelle Duggar has miscarried. The forty-five-year-old mother of nineteen didn’t suspect anything was wrong until a recent doctor’s visit noticed some irregularities. There were complications with her last pregnancy too. Daughter Josie was born four months premature, but she’s since grown into a happy, healthy almost two-year-old girl. Unfortunately, no such miracles could be worked here. Once Michelle and her husband Jim Bob get more information, they plan to name the child and hold a funeral.
According to People, Michelle told the children after the doctor’s appointment and breaking the news almost “broke” her heart. Miscarriages are never an easy blow to take, regardless of how many other kids you might have. It’s unclear how the trials of the last two pregnancies might affect Michelle and Jim Bob’s decision on whether to have more children, but they’ve long vowed to leave the family planning to God.
It’s hard for people to understand why the Nineteen Kids And Counting... couple would want to have so many children. To be perfectly honest, I don’t completely get it, but what I do respect is that the family works hard to support themselves. They were doing just fine prior to the show thanks to a dogged work ethic, and with tv cameras following them around, I’m sure they’re doing better than ever, despite this unfortunate setback.
Pop Blend sends out its sincerest well-wishes to the whole Duggar family at this time as they get over this unexpected loss.
