Michelle Duggar Suffers Miscarriage With 20th Child

by at . Comments

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar announced some sad news today.

A month after they announced her pregnancy with their 20th child, their doctor was unable to find a heartbeat and told her she suffered a miscarriage.

"After the appointment, we came back home and told the children," says Michelle, 45. "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."

The Duggars

She says the family will select a name after they know if the baby, miscarried in the second trimester, was a boy or girl, and then plan to have a funeral.

"I feel like my heart broke telling my children," says Michelle. "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."

Still, she adds that the family's faith perseveres: "The Lord is the giver of life and he can choose when that life is ready to go on and be with Him."

The stars of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting weathered myriad medical ordeal with their youngest daughter, Josie-Brookyln, born in December 2009.

This is actually her second miscarriage. Michelle lost a baby during her second pregnancy. She was taking oral birth control then, citing that as a big reason the pair decided they'd leave the number of children they have "up to God."

In light of these events, should the Duggars still try for a 20th?

ok I'm sorry but maybe this is her God's way of telling her to STOP! I mean seriously she's already almost 50 now and what in the hell made them think that she was fit enough to have another baby I mean look at what happened with baby Josey! I mean she almost died the baby almost died and it was hell for the entire family! Not to mention she isn't going to live long enough to see all of those kids get grown I hate to be the one to say that but it's the honest truth. Not to mention I'm started to think that they were doing all that just for attention. I mean Jim Bob IS a politician after all. I'm really sorry that she miscarried but maybe she'll realize enough is enough.

Another WOW! But, not so ha, ha! How in the name of GOD do some of y'all think that Michelle Duggar is over populating the world for giving multiple births?! And that woman has the right to have as many children as she wants too. And who are some of y'all to tell any woman how many children she can and cannot have? Every woman is blessed with the body that God gave THEM! God did not give their bodies to any of you! It is in none of you all's hands to decide anything about any woman. Get a life people!!

Well then if the resources are "dwindling" why don't you go die and make room for the future children then? You sound like a worthless little shit.

@Ben Who hopes someone has a miscarriage?? She lost her baby and you view this to be good? They support their children without any government assistance. The children do mission work and are respectful human beings. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU!

Sadly, these are tougher times for a fetus. With the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan (3 full meltdowns), the fallout blows to the U.S. and increases infant mortality. In some places, especially the West Coast, it has been up over 40% higher than before Fukushima. You have to be careful if you are pregnant now!!...
