Michelle Duggar Miscarries: Was Pregnancy Too Risky? (Video)


Michelle Duggar miscarries
Yesterday, we sadly reported that Michelle Duggar had a miscarriage – the “19 Kids and Counting” Duggar family went for a routine check-up, but the baby’s heartbeat was not detected.

Michelle Duggar gives an update on how she’s doing: “Our doctor said it was wise to let this miscarriage happen naturally. And so that is what we are going to do.”

Duggar is home resting, with her doctor’s recommendation that she not use medications that cause her uterus to contract because of the cut that her emergency Cesarean for Josie created.

Michelle shares, “I am resting and I have felt good physically, which is strange.” She was 19 weeks and 1 day along in her pregnancy.

Duggar noted that “On December 3, I felt a little uncomfortable but I thought it was just something I’d eaten. It could have been the beginning of something going wrong. I had my blood drawn yesterday, and it showed that my progesterone levels had dropped so something was not right [with the pregnancy].”

In the video clip below, the Today show discusses whether Michelle Duggar’s pregnancy was too risky, with an expert saying that the chance of miscarriage increases with age.

This doctor’s advice for Michelle Duggar? “Clearly, her pregnancies are at increased risks.”

    Dear Friends:

    The baby was not dead. The heart rate was so soft not detected. Abortion not miscarriage.

      Come on this women has had 19 children and loves bringing life into this world, she considers this her duty in life now what in the world would make you think this was a late abortion, you obviously know nothing about pregnancy and birth. First of all her HCG levels were dropping which indicates that there is a problem with the pregnancy and the baby and the body is starting the process of elimination that being the unborn fetus in order to save the mother, secound of all where did you here there was a heartbeat because if there was the doctor probably would have had an emergency delivery because many fetuses can live outside the womb past 20weeks or even before that, so what is your problem really, what an awful thing to say when this whole family is grieving a loss, that is terrible what you said like you act as if you were there or something?

    MAYBE GOD IS TELLING THEM ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. THEY HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH 19 CHILDREN, EVEN THOUGH THE LAST ONE HAD SOME PROBLEMS. FROM WHAT I READ ON THE CREDITS, A BIG PORTION OF WHAT THEY HAVE IS GIVEN TO THEM BY COMPANIES, AND I AM SURE THAT THE CHECKS THEY RECEIVE FOR THE REALITY SHOW PAYS THE WAY. 19 CHILDREN, I AM SURE IS A HUGE EXPENSE THAT UNLESS THEY KEEP PRODUCING AND RECEIVING THE ROYALTIES THEY WOULD BE SORELY PRESSED TO MEET THESE EXPENSES. I AM SORRY FOR THEIR LOSS, BUT SHE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THE ADVICE FROM THE DOCTOR IS A VALID REASON TO STOP TRYING TO PRODUCE MORE CHILDREN, UNLESS THE PAYCHECK IS WHAT MATTERS.
