Duggar Baby Update

December 21, 2009

It has been a fabulous year for TLC’s the Duggar family (you know, the family with all the kids). They are the family who just keep popping them out left and right thanks to super sperminator Jim Bob Duggar and his wife placenta poppin’ Michelle. But, in all seriousness it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses for the TLC family as devastating news struck the Duggars just a couple weeks ago. Jim Bob and Michelle were forced to deliver their 19th child, Josie, a few months early due to big fat problems with Michelle’s health. Get the Duggar baby update here!

Michelle Duggar has updated People magazine with the status of their little one, who was born prematurely on December 10th, 2009. We are dying to know, how in the heck is Josie Duggar doing after her premature delivery? For those of you who didn’t know, Josie was born weighing in at a tiny one pound, six ounces after an emergency C-section was required due to pre-eclampsia complicating Michelle’s pregnancy. This baby and the Duggar family have a long road ahead of them!

However, Michelle remains positive telling the magazine, “Josie is doing as well as can be expected for a baby at her age. We are taking each hour as it comes. We feel so blessed that God has given us to her and are cherishing every moment with her.”

Jim Bob also commented on their current situation saying, “This is so difficult, but I know that we are leaving this in God’s hands. God’s will is what we would choose if we knew all the facts. Our children’s spiritual maturity is going to deepen so much through this, in a way that couldn’t happen any other way.” That is so sweet and I wish only the best for this little girl. But…while my heart goes out to Michelle, Jim Bob and their brood of now 19 children, I’m wondering as I am sure many of you are…could kiddo number 20 be in the works or maybe already be growing inside a nice warm belly? Don’t even lie…you know it has crossed your mind!

At this point, I am thinking probably not, but this family has surprised us before! You just never know about Michelle and Jim Bob, those crazy kids!
Duggar baby number 19 was born premature, but mama Michelle is delighted to announce that she is cherishing every moment with Josie Brooklyn. Little baby Duggar is hospitalized at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock. Get well, Josie!

    My heart and prayers go out to the Duggar’s. I hope that baby Josie survives her battles. May God bless them all.
    It may be wrong of me to say. But they’re lives looked so perfect to me. I couldn’t understand. I had thier same beliefs but my life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes I feel that I don’t have to go looking for trouble it just seems to find me. I asked my daughter once what was I doing so wrong. The same daughter that in the past few months has broken my heart more than once. She told me that everyone had problems. I see now that is true. Don’t get me wrong I wish the Duggar’s all the best in the world and I’m praying for all of them. I know this must be extremely diffulcult. This is one of those test your faith situation. Now, though I see that we all have our battles. Now my battles pale in comparison to thier’s.

    After my c-section, I was up and running after 5 days, so in all rights she could be with child already.

    I just want to wish the Duggars warm wishes and many prayers. My overwhelming thoughts go out to them as I myself had a pregnancy that had to be ended early due to pre-eclampsia. I delivered my twin boys 8 weeks early due to the complications. It’s not easy seeing your little miracles suffer in the NICU…..My advice is to stay strong and be there for one another! Bless you all! Take care!

    For Audrey, they have a life that is pretty well financed. Jim Bob Duggar was a state rep, which results in a fatty pension that he gets. Plus any money they do make with TLC or other income – with 19 kids – can you imagine the deductibles on taxes?! With so many homeless, hungry children in the world, why don’t the Duggars just adopt? It doesn’t seem to be that Jim Bob really cherishes his wife. Pregnancy is difficult; she is at the age when having a child can involve Downs Syndrome, and with the premature birth, mental and physical difficulties could be on the horizon. I wonder if they are really prepared to handle a child with disabilities…life has been pretty sweet for them up to now.

    Glad little Josie is doing well. Thank goodness for science and technology so premie’s are able to have a fighting chance. Praying simply doesn’t work. There have been many, many independent, double blind studies showing praying makes NO difference in sick people.

    My son died 22 years ago as a baby. Trust me, I prayed like no tomorrow. Perhaps if he were born now, the technology that has advanced would of save him. I’ll take science any day, you all can have your prayers.

    @Lori-They cannot take deductions on all those kids; there are limits, and I’m sure the make more than the allowed annual income for these deductions anyway.

    Little Josie should be fine, I work at a NICU and Babies can be born at 22 weeks and still survive. She has a really good chance and with all the prayers and love she should thrive.

    May God Bless guide and watch over the little baby and all of the dugger family.
