When they announced that they were expecting #20 last month, I literally wanted to throw up in my mouth. I struggle with thinking that Michelle Duggar has to be such a baby making machine for her (to me) brainwashing husband. Why can't they just be happy with the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 children they have without wanting to expand their
Having said that, the other half of me, the one who is still suffering with the grief of her miscarriage from three months ago, wants me to give her a hug. Her miscarriage was a second trimester miscarriage and I just can't imagine how different that was for her than her first miscarriage 20-something years ago. My heart aches for her.
My prayers are for them to heal from this devastating loss. Whether it's #1 or #20, a loss is a loss is a loss and it fucking sucks. I can't help but pray that they use a little bit more caution because she's not a spring chicken. Her last two pregnancies have ended with a premature baby and a second-trimester miscarriage. God forbid something happen to Michelle. Her 19 children and 2 grandbabies need her more than a tv show that has to change its name every 18 months because they can't stop counting.
As a side note, its good to see some websites and tv shows mentioning how to comfort someone you know who has had a miscarriage. I can tell you what NOT to say just from my own experience.
