Swanson and Duggar were left devastated after their miscarriage

In the midst of all of the Duggars announcing pregnancies, Swanson and her husband had something a bit more upsetting to share. They told their followers that they had been expecting a baby at one point, but they learned several months back that Swanson had miscarried. On their TLC show Counting On, Swanson described the moment when she learned she had lost her baby. “I wasn’t feeling well,” she said. “I was cramping really, really badly… I went to use the restroom and there was the baby. Gone.” Swanson took the news extremely hard, but fans were there to support both her and Duggar. On the couple’s Instagram post about the miscarriage, fans shared their own experiences with losing a baby to let the couple know they weren’t alone.

Four Duggars announced pregnancies this year, and fans hoped Swanson would be next

After Swanson learned she had miscarried, the couple continued trying for a baby. Earlier this year, four Duggars announced they would welcome new babies in 2019. Jessa Duggar, Anna Duggar (Josh’s wife), Kendra Duggar (Joe’s wife), and Joy Duggar all made pregnancies announcements in the first half of 2019. With all the excitement about new babies, fans couldn’t help but wonder when Swanson and Duggar would announce a pregnancy of their own. People also suspected that Abbie Burnett, who had married John Duggar in November, could be the next to announce.  

Earlier this week, Swanson and Duggar took to Instagram to tell the world that they’re expecting another baby.

Swanson and Duggar will likely welcome their baby in October or November

Typically, when couples make pregnancy announcements, the woman is around three months along. If this is the case, Swanson and Duggar will likely welcome their little one in November. However, since Swanson had a miscarriage, they may have waited extra time out of an abundance of caution, and Swanson might be closer to four months. If that’s the case, their new baby might be here in October. The couple hasn’t announced a specific due date, but they seem over the moon about the baby.

The two haven’t released many details about their baby yet

Along with no due date, we haven’t received any additional details from the couple. Right now, they’re celebrating the pregnancy and preparing for parenthood, and they most likely don’t know the baby’s gender yet and haven’t decided on a name. “We cannot begin to tell you how much we are looking forward to holding this baby in our arms this fall,” the couple said in a joint statement. They received plenty of congratulations from family, friends, and fans, and more details will probably emerge as the baby’s due date gets closer.
