19 Kids and Counting matriarch Michelle Duggar was overjoyed to find out she was pregnant with her 20th child; however, she found out at her 20-week ultrasound that she had miscarried. In their book, Growing up Duggar, Jana, Jill, Jessa and Jinger shared the story of how they found out their mother had miscarried.
“Mama smiled a sweet smile and said, as tears welled up in her eyes, ‘We had the ultrasound… and there was no heartbeat,'” the sisters revealed. “‘Our baby has died.'”
“We were stunned. Speechless. The baby brother or sister we had so looked forward to holding and playing with… was gone. There was no holding back the tears as Mom shared the story of how the technician had started the ultrasound, how she had looked and looked at the screen, how she had paused and turned to them, looking so sad, and said, ‘I’m so sorry.’ The doctor had confirmed there was no heartbeat.”
Duggar gave birth to her stillborn baby girl, whom they named Jubilee Shalom Duggar.
“She had beautiful blue eyes, and a very cute little Duggar nose. She looked perfect in every way,” they said.
