In the current season of TLC’s Counting On, Josiah and Lauren Duggar are preparing for parenthood. The couple previously had an early miscarriage. They named the baby that they lost Asa.
Now, in the current season, they’re expecting a baby girl. At this point, Lauren is pretty far along in her pregnancy, and everything appears to be going well.
As TV Shows Ace reports, they are getting the nursery ready in a new clip. It’s unclear if and when the clip will be included in Season 11 of the TLC show. But, fans like to see sneak peeks ahead of time. While the clip focuses on the couple preparing the baby’s nursery, the clip also includes some insight into Lauren’s pregnancy. Until this point, Lauren hasn’t revealed a lot about her pregnancy and the difficulties she faced while pregnant.
Currently, Josiah and Lauren’s daughter is eight months old. But, due to filming and production time, the current season of Counting On is a little bit behind.
Lauren Duggar reveals pregnancy challenges
In this new clip from TLC, Lauren talks about the difficulties she’s faced while pregnant. She explains that this has prevented the couple from getting the nursery ready. But, now she’s feeling better and is able to get the nursery in order.
Lauren says, “There’s been quite a few health risks throughout, I think, just each trimester. The first trimester, we thought we were gonna lose this one, because I had spotted for a month. And then the second trimester, my progesterone levels were just very low.”
The Duggar daughter-in-law goes on to talk about the third trimester, saying, “I was having contractions, and so it definitely was not time for her to come, so it was very dangerous.”
Then, Josiah adds, “For a while, she would get up, try to do a lot, and have contractions.” He says that they could do some things, and then Lauren would rest and take it easy for the rest of the day.”
Lauren says that she’s grateful that she’s able to work on the nursery and that she’s feeling better. She says that they are “dwelling on the joy” with this pregnancy. She adds that they missed out on getting to do all the first things with their first baby, Asa, that they lost. So, this pregnancy is more special to them.
