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!
