Duggar: Lauren Says Her Pregnancy ‘Hasn’t Been Easy’

Counting On Josiah and Lauren Duggar Instagram

Several women in the Duggar family are currently expecting. This includes Anna, Lauren, Abbie, and Kendra. In addition, their cousin Amy King is pregnant. Joy-Anna Forsyth recently miscarried at 20 weeks gestation. She revealed this news to her fans in July one week after the miscarriage.

Over the weekend, Lauren, who is the wife of Josiah Duggar, shared a new pregnancy update. Prior to this update via Instagram, the couple hadn’t posted on their shared social media account in over a month. In her post this weekend, Lauren showed off her growing baby bump.

Fans are loving this new picture of Lauren. They wish that Lauren and Josiah posted more often.

In her caption, Lauren wrote, “Life is such a gift and something I cherish more now, with all that we have gone through this past year. This pregnancy hasn’t been easy. I treasure every moment and I am reminded daily that life is truly a miracle from God. #blessed #lifeisagift #donttakelifeforgranted”.


Up until this point, Duggar fans have not gotten many updates from Lauren and Josiah. They don’t share as much as the other family members do on social media. This could be due to Lauren’s difficult pregnancy so far. She may not have the time or energy to use social media. Some people simply choose to use social media more sparingly.

Josiah and Lauren Duggar’s tragic miscarriage

In February, Josiah and Lauren posted on Instagram and shared that Lauren had suffered a miscarriage. In the caption, they wrote, “Many of yall don’t know this, but a couple of months ago we found out we were expecting, however, soon after we miscarried.”

They continued, “At first, we kind of wanted to just stay quiet about the news, but knew that since everyone is anticipating for us to announce that were having a baby, we felt like it was time that we told everyone that our first and only baby is in heaven. It is hard to hear when people asks us if we are expecting, when we only recently lost our baby. You can imagine it was devastating to the both of us.”

During this sad time, they received plenty of support, love, and prayers from their followers on Instagram. They thanked their followers for the support they received during that difficult time in their lives.

Josiah and Lauren are expecting a rainbow baby

In May, Josiah and Lauren shared a new post on Instagram. They wrote,

“We are so excited to announce that baby #2 is on the the way!!!! It’s hard to fully express just how grateful we are for God blessing us again with another precious gift! So, as we rejoice of the life of our second sweet baby, we also remember (balloon as symbolism) our other sweet baby, Asa, in heaven. God is so incredibly good!”

A rainbow baby is a baby that is conceived after a baby is miscarried or stillborn.


Shortly after this announcement, the couple shared that their baby is a girl. Josiah’s sisters-in-law, Anna and Kendra, are also expecting girls in November.
