Josiah Duggar and Lauren ‘s tragic loss

In the early part of this year, the couple had opened up about the miscarriage that Lauren, 20 had in October 2018. Josiah, 22 had elaborated:

“Lauren and I were actually preparing for a trip to go to a friend’s wedding,”

“She started feeling really sick and started noticing some different things. Mrs. Swanson was there, so she was able to help her out. I didn’t know exactly what was going on.”

Lauren continued from this point:

“I wasn’t feeling well,”

“I was cramping really, really bad, which was quite strange because I normally don’t. And 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.”

Josiah and Lauren’s baby is due in October or November 2019. The other Duggar babies which are expected this year are of Jessa Duggar, Josh Duggar’s wife Anna Duggar, Joe Duggar’s wife Kendra Duggar, and Joy Duggar.
