not that we were.....but did you hear that her latest baby was born 3 months premature and weighs 1 lb something. So sad..... I said a prayer for them today. The story is on the right side of JM.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy!!!

I've got my prayer candle lit for little Josie (love the name), Michelle had some gallbladder issues that led to the very early delivery! Being a mom to a preemie is scary business, I hope I never have to go through that again.

I am certain that I read something about her having Pre-E too. I suffered that with my first baby, I had been so very tiny (underweight) for many many years so I think it was a shock for my body. I had pretty severe GD, high blood pressure, water retention that was so bad I was put on HOSPITAL bedrest at the beginning of May & there till I had him June 6th.
I am hopeful that the baby does well, I can't even fathom a 1 lb 6 oz baby.

Oh wow no I hadn't heard... We don't even have cable right now. I love the Duggars. Their life ministered to us years ago. Poor Michelle... we'll all pray for them now too! Thanks for letting us know~

I just saw it yesterday. I hope all goes well.

I had a 4lbs preemie, and already found her to be so little, baby Josie is 1lbs 6oz, it's hard to even imagine, she is super premature though, I think her due date was March 16.

I've seen a preemie under 2 pounds in the NICU where Travis was. Well, kinda. What I'm trying to say is with all the tubes, wires, and all that, you could hardly see baby. She pulled through though, I talk to her mom now and then, she's a brute like my 'preemie' is! I guess the fight stays in them!

I didn't hear that. So sad. 1 lb 6 oz is so hard to imagine.

And on a selfish note...
I can already imagine my sister saying things like "Well, they had a whole bunch of kids already, why did they need to push it" Ugh. I'm already dreading the argument.
