Michelle Duggar: Hospitalized, But Alright

by at . Comments

Michelle Duggar of TLC's 18 Kids and Counting (she's the one who gave birth to 18 kids with one on the way) was hospitalized, but is thankfully doing fine.

She was rushed to an Arkansas hospital after a scare regarding her pregnancy with Baby No. 19, not due until spring, but that ultimately wasn't the reason.

"This weekend, Michelle Duggar was admitted to an Arkansas hospital," says a network rep. "The pain from a gallstone was generating some contractions."

"Just to be safe, she was airlifted to a Little Rock, Ark., hospital, so in the unlikely event that she had to be delivered early, she would be close to a NICU center."

Jim Bob and wife Michelle Duggar of TLC.

"Though there were some fears that the baby was in trouble, it soon was discovered to be solely the stone causing discomfort. Michelle is resting comfortably."

The baby is fine, and has a few more months until it joins Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar and their brood of 18 kids - who have to get by without mom for a bit.

Hey, at least their folks are still together. Cough, Jon Gosselin.

"Doctors want to observe Michelle in the hospital for the next couple of days," says the rep, "The hope is that any surgery can be delayed until after she delivers."

Get well soon, Michelle!

Ok who cares if they have 19 kids, if you actually watch the show, you would realize they are a completely normal family, i mean yeah they are super religious but ALOT of people are. The have 0 debt and arnt asking anyone for anything, how about we bash all the people who abuse the welfare system??? there the ones stealing the tax dollars, not selfreliant families who decide to have lots of kids. Anyways, someone has to make up for the fact that so many women are deciding not to have children, children are our future and beleive it or not, we need them!

Their story is better than other multi child families because the kids amazingly do seem to be very well rounded. But I agree, enough is enough. Can you imagine the toll that this woman's body must have taken so far??? She is my age I believe and I only have 2, can't imagine for a second being pregnant for the last 20 plus years of my life. Yikes. Love and having kids is more than the amount.

Stop breeding ffs... don't you know there's a global climate crisis going on right now? Oh, you're American ...guess that'll be a no then. Obama should bring in a carbon tax - something like $10 per kilo of child above two children. Come to that slam it on the fat people too - that'd learn em.
