“I remember just when Jessa Seewald was expecting Ivy and I had lost our first one, Asa,” Lauren, 20, told Us Weekly on October 29. “I just remember how sweet Jessa was. She’d write special notes and texts, just reminding me how much she loves me and that she was praying for me.”

She continued, “That’s kind of one thing I do for Joy, sending her encouragement and sending her scripture. I know what it feels like when someone’s pregnant and you’re not. I know what you’re feeling and just knowing to be sensitive to different things.”

Joy-Anna, 22, revealed in July that she had miscarried her second child with her husband Austin Forsyth. They posed with the still-born baby and shared photos on Instagram. Weeks after, she opened up about it and told fans, “Our hearts are healing. Yes, those days come that I miss my little girl so much. Wishing I could have met her, seen Austin love on her and Gideon play with her. Yet, God has given us so much comfort.”

Lauren is currently expecting another child and opened up about her fear of whether or not she would carry the baby to full term. “There are many times where you can just be fearful and think, ‘Oh, I’m going to lose this one too.’ But this child belongs to the Lord. He’s the one that has given this life,” she said.

During the October 29 episode of Counting On, Lauren opened up about her struggle to cope with her miscarriage. “Going through a miscarriage is very hard,” she said. “It’s hard to talk about it. It’s not pretty, it’s horrible and some people feel ashamed by it. I was in depression for so long. To me, life had no purpose. It just hurt really bad.”

Jessa, 26, who was pregnant at the time, sympathized with Lauren over her loss. “I feel like with Lauren and I having the exact same due date, it’s caused me to be even more aware of her emotions,” she said. There can be a tendency as a pregnant woman to complain. And then to see Lauren having lost that, it really makes me aware of the words that I speak.”
