Joy-Anna Duggar talks about pregnancy concerns
In her YouTube video with her husband, Joy talks about the beginning of her pregnancy. She says, “Soon after we found out we were pregnant, I started spotting quite a bit. So I called the doctor, went in and got blood work done. He basically said some of my numbers were looking a little bit off. My HCG levels were really high, and he said there were just some concerns. He said that there is a chance this may be a molar pregnancy.”
Duggar fans know this must have been heartbreaking for Joy and Austin to hear. They had waited to conceive after the loss. Joy has previously shared that it’s been difficult for her to work through the loss she experienced last summer. So, this conversation with her doctor was hard for her to handle. She explains that she was fearful about the possibility of a molar pregnancy, but she wanted to be excited about her pregnancy too.
Then, Joy continues, “At that time, I really didn’t know what that was. Basically, you’re pregnant but it’s not a viable pregnancy. It’s not gonna last past 10 or 12 weeks.”
Later in the video, the Duggar daughter and her husband are in the car when the doctor calls. After the call, Joy talks about what the doctor said, saying, “They said so far everything looks great and the baby looks healthy. We’re having a girl, and I cannot believe it. I just started crying. I don’t even know what to say. … Super, excited nervous and tankful all at the same time, but God is good.”
Austin adds, “Such a relief. … Like, a huge load lifted off our shoulders.”
Even though they had that scare, it seems that everything is going smoothly now. Duggar fans are hopeful that the rest of Joy’s pregnancy will be normal and that everything goes well for them.
