Three months ago, Josiah and Lauren Duggar shared with the world that they had recently had a miscarriage. They miscarried in October during Lauren’s first pregnancy. After the miscarriage, they shared an update with their fans to let them know what was going on. Because the Duggar daughters and daughters-in-law get pregnant shortly after marriage, the couple wanted to tell fans what happened. Plenty of fans were wondering why Lauren wasn’t pregnant by that point.
At the time, Lauren said, “I wasn’t feeling well. I was cramping really, really bad, which was quite strange because I normally don’t. I was thinking maybe I had something that had gluten in it. It was late at night and I went to use the restroom and there was the baby. Gone. I couldn’t believe it and I was hoping it wasn’t true.”
From their Instagram posts about the miscarriage, it is obvious that this was a very difficult time in their lives. They explained that they shared this with their fans to make others feel less alone. As they shared this update, fans offered encouragement, prayers, and all kinds of sweet messages.

Many of yall don't know this, but a couple of months ago we found out we were expecting, however, soon after we miscarried. At first, we kind of wanted to just stay quiet about the news, but knew that since everyone is anticipating for us to announce that were having a baby, we felt like it was time that we told everyone that our first and only baby is in heaven. It is hard to hear when people asks us if we are expecting, when we only recently lost our baby. You can imagine it was devastating to the both of us. Our expectations of setting up a baby room, hearing the heart beat, feeling the baby's first kick in mommys tummy, holding our little one and getting to to see our precious baby were – Shattered. Gone. Right before our eyes. Even though our sweet child is no longer with us, it is such a comfort to know that one day we will get to see our baby in Heaven! To the ones who have gone through this, I know your pain. It’s real and terrible. I just want you to know you don’t have to suffer in pain alone. It is not your fault. We greatly appreciate your prayers as we go through this hard time! Love, -Josiah and Lauren #countingon #TLC #miscarriage #ourbabyisafeinthearmsofjesus
