Hospitalized TV Mom Michelle Duggar: Baby's Going to Be OK
After being rushed to the hospital last weekend for gallbladder issues, Michelle Duggar, star of TLC's 18 Kids and Counting, says she is "feeling much better."
She and her husband Jim Bob Duggar offered fans an iPhone video update from the Arkansas hospital where she is currently recovering.
"The gallstone has kind of calmed down... blood pressure is still getting regulating, and the baby sounds good," she told fans. "So we're sort of waiting to see what happens."
Jim Bob says that they'll be at the hospital "for a few more days" to make sure her blood pressure keeps going down. He adds that his wife should still be able to carry the baby to full term.
"So far the baby is doing great," he says, "and we're so grateful to God.
In September, Michelle and Jim Bob -- who have 18 children and one grandchild -- announced that they are expecting baby No. 19 in the spring.
