Former Counting On star talks about pregnancy after loss.
On Instagram over the past couple of weeks, Joy Forsyth has been open about her pregnancy and her previous loss. She recently informed fans that Annabell’s due date had just passed and that she would have been three years old this year. Now, in a recent Q&A session via her Instagram Stories, the Duggar daughter opened up about her current pregnancy.
One fan asked how she had the strength to announce this pregnancy before the 12-week mark. There’s no official rule and she can announce whenever she wants to, of course. But people sometimes wait to announce their pregnancies after 12 weeks due to the risk of miscarriage before that point. However, Joy Forsyth shared her big news fairly early this time. In response to the curious fan, she wrote:
“I have waited until 2nd trimester to announce pregnancies with my other kids, but I decided to announce earlier with this one cause I know that whatever happens, I want a good support system around me and for people to know how to pray for me.”
