Michelle Duggar suffers miscarriage while pregnant with 20th child
Michelle Duggar has suffered a miscarriage while pregnant with her 20th child.
Us reports that Duggar’s miscarriage was announced on Thursday. Jim Bob Duggar told Us, “Earlier today at a routine doctor’s appointment, Michelle and I received the sad news that we lost the baby. Michelle is resting comfortably at home with the support of the entire family. We are grateful for all the thoughts and prayers, but ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
As we reported previously, the Duggars faced challenges with Michelle’s last pregnancy. While pregnant with Josie, who was born premature, Michelle suffered from gallbladder problems and preeclempsia. Michelle’s doctors had given her the green light for this latest pregnancy and she hadn’t had any health problems. She had been working out regularly prior to the pregnancy, saying, “I’m really in better shape than I’ve been in 20 years.”
