Michelle Duggar rests at home after losing baby

They lost their baby

Mrs Carter: Sad news for the Duggar family

While at a routine checkup on Thursday, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were informed that they had lost their 20th child and that their baby no longer had a heartbeat.

Michelle was told by the doctor to let the end of the pregnancy happen ‘naturally’ so she is at home resting.  She said;

“Our doctor said it was wise to let this [end of the pregnancy] happen naturally, and so that is what we are going to do. I am resting and I have felt good physically, which is strange.”

Michelle was 19 weeks and 1 day into her pregnancy when she received the terrible news. The Duggar’s have decided to name their lost baby just as they did for the first child the Duggar’s lost after the birth of their son Josh and have said that they know they will be reunited again in heaven.  She said;

“We named that baby [the first] Caleb even though we didn’t know if it was a boy or girl because that miscarriage was early.  We will name this child and will know that we will see those children again someday in heaven.”

Michelle’s 19 other children and her husband has been taking care of her as she deals with the difficulty of losing her child.  She said;

“The kids are mothering me now. Jill just brought me some food and they are taking good care of me.”
