Counting On: Jill Duggar Revealed She Suffered A Miscarriage.
While the miscarriage occurred too early to know the sex of their baby, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard decided to name their baby River Bliss Dillard.
She explained on her blog, saying, “One meaning for River is ‘tranquil’…and here in Arkansas, rivers are often a serene, beautiful escape in nature.” Jill Duggar continued, “And we chose Bliss for a middle name because our baby is living in perfect bliss with the Lord and was such a gift that brought immense joy and happiness to us even though only with us here on earth for a short time”
Unfortunately, Jill Duggar joined the miscarriage grief club along with many of her sisters and sisters-in-law. The Duggar women have been public with their loss, some of them even filming the events when Counting On aired.
Michelle Duggar also suffered a miscarriage when she and Jim Bob Duggar were newly married, which led to their firm stance of not using birth control.
Anna Duggar and Lauren Swanson also suffered losses. As for the Duggar sisters, Jinger, Jessa and Joy-Anna also lost a child. Jinger was filming when it happened, and she talked about it on screen, even sharing some moments with her sisters and mother, who visited her in California after the loss.
This is a journey for Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard that they will have to travel. This seems to be new news as she has October 2021 listed for River Bliss Dillard. While she didn’t share too many details, she did reveal that they found out just a few days before she started miscarrying.
