It’s a sad day for the Duggar family. Michelle Duggar has miscarried in her second trimester. People reports that she and Jim Bob had gone to a routine check-up on Thursday to find out the sex of their 20th child when the doctor was unable to find a heartbeat.
Michelle said, “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.”
The family will select a name before making funeral arrangements.
This was Michelle’s second miscarriage. Her first one was when she was taking oral birth control. Because of that time, the couple decided to leave the number of children they have “up to God.”
It was only last month that the couple and their 19 children announced her pregnancy on the Today Show.
