The recent announcement that "19 Kids & Counting" star Michelle Duggar, 45, suffered a miscarriage inspired waves of sadness and sympathy. The miscarriage occurred during the second trimester of her pregnancy. The baby, who was due in April, would have been Michelle and husband Jim Bob's 20th.

 

The family had been discussing baby names the night before they learned the news. The Duggars have said they plan to choose a name for the baby after they learn if it was to be a boy or a girl. They also plan to hold a funeral.

Michelle says Jim Bob and the children are taking good care of her. "The kids are mothering me now," she said. "Jill brought me some food and they are taking good care of me." Daughter Jill is 20 and studying to be a midwife.

According to People magazine, Michelle is resting and recovering at home. Michelle and Jim Bob learned that she'd miscarried while at a routine doctor's appointment. They'd gone in to see if the doctor could determine the sex of the baby. Instead, the doctor gave them the terrible news that the baby had no heartbeat.

With a different hairstyle (even that one), and all of those kids, she looks good to be 45.

I have a friend who had a miscarriage in the second trimester. They had a funeral/memorial service for the baby and they still go to the grave sometimes.
