The Duggars are taking it one day at a time.

In the wake of the sad news that she had suffered a miscarriage, 19 Kids and Counting star Michelle Duggar continues to rest comfortably at home, a TLC rep confirms to E! News.

It was during what Michelle thought would be a routine doctor's appointment on Thursday that she and husband Jim Bob learned that she had suffered a miscarriage in her second trimester. The couple had been looking forward to finding out the sex of what was going to be their 20th child together.

"Our doctor said it was wise to let this miscarriage happen naturally. And so that is what we are going to do," Michelle told People. "I am resting and I have felt good physically, which is strange."

Michelle also revealed that she suffered her first miscarriage after getting pregnant following the birth of her oldest son, Josh.

"We named that baby Caleb even though we didn't know if it was a boy or a girl because that miscarriage was early," Michelle said, adding: "We will name this child and will know that we will see those children again someday in heaven."

The family says they do plan on holding a funeral service.
