Michelle Duggar Posts Bittersweet Message About Jill's Pregnancy (PHOTO)

jim bob and michelle duggarIf you've been following the story of the Duggar family since their early days on 19 Kids and Counting, you know that Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar hold strong beliefs when it comes to family planning and children. In fact, the couple has been very vocal in their opposition to birth control and have always shared their struggles, including their past miscarriages. And now that their daughter Jill Duggar is expecting her first child with husband Derick Dillard, Michelle and Jim Bob are celebrating every possible milestone.


Jill is now in her second trimester and is halfway through her 28th week of pregnancy. And the Duggar fam is clearly very excited:

Michelle and Jim Bob caused an uproar when they admitted that Michelle miscarried their second child. In fact, when Jim Bob made the reveal, he said it was all because Michelle had once used the birth control pill, which, according to the couple, then caused her body to miscarry the fetus.

And when it comes to their children, it looks like the family recognizes every coming week. Reaching these little gestational benchmarks can help any mom (and family!) feel more relaxed about a pregnancy. So congratulations to the Duggar family for being able to breathe this collective sigh of relief. It's a big moment for the whole bunch.

Did you experience this same level of relief once you reached a milestone?
