Jessa Duggar Shares Heartbreaking News of Miscarriage

Jessa Duggar Seewald said she lost a pregnancy over the holidays. In the nearly 19-minute YouTube video, the 30-year-old former star of “19 Kids and Counting” talked about the sad story of her most recent pregnancy, from telling her kids about the new baby to dealing with the news that she had miscarried.

In one scene caught on camera, Jessa said she was worried early in her pregnancy because she was “spotting” blood. She said her family had cheered her up by singing the hymn “Day by Day.”

But when she went in for her next ultrasound, the doctor told her the terrible news that the baby did not “look good. Nothing could have prepared me for the weight of those words in that moment; she said she would “take a break” from social media and concentrate on improving.

She said that passing the fetus home could cause problems, so she went to a hospital for a dilation and curettage procedure to remove the fetus.

Jessa tearfully recalled the moments leading up to the procedure, saying, “I was able to thank God in that moment for giving us this life, even if we wouldn’t be able to hold this baby in our arms.”

She said, though, that the most challenging parts of the whole process happened after the surgery.

“Those 10 to 15 minutes before I was taken back to the room where Ben and my mom were waiting were probably some of the hardest in my life, just laying there feeling so alone,”she said as her voice broke on camera.
