    She went to get her first ultrasound and they couldn't find a fetus. She was never aware of having a miscarriage event. I would think you would know if you had a miscarriage in the second trimester.

    I'm just wondering if perhaps her pregnancy was really menopause in disguise?

      As commenters above have pointed out, their family occupation is having babies. No more babies, no reality show.

      What if it was a sham from the beginning? No pregnancy, and boo-hoo feel sorry for me because I lost one (that never was).

        married and now has two and those births have already been part of the show ... the show will continue

        BUT she/they were part of the quiverfull movement before they had a show .. they got the show when they were already at 15 kids, I think... it may have been 16 or 17

      There isn't always a dramatic moment like you see on tv, when an accident happens, or random bleeding starts, or the woman magically knows. Sometimes there is just no heartbeat at the regular checkup.

        Although I've never experienced a second trimester miscarriage, I know many women who have.  It's not some 'are you sure you were pregnant' event.  There are remains, you have to miscarry naturally or through a procedure.  There definitely WAS a pregnancy.  There was no heartbeat, there was a fetus.
