Amy Duggar Slams Fan for Calling Her Disrespectful after She Posted Baby Bump Photo

Amy Duggar is just one of the Duggar girls who are pregnant. She is 26 weeks pregnant with her first child and has been openly sharing pics of her pregnancy.

While cousin Amy is super excited about having her first child, her family is, unfortunately, dealing with a few losses that occurred over the last months. Most recently, Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth miscarried their baby girl.

Joy was just six weeks behind her cousin in her pregnancy. She learned that the baby had passed away in-utero when she went for her 20-week check up.

Today marks one week since we heard these words… . “So this is your baby’s heart (pointing to the ultrasound screen). I don’t hear a heartbeat or see any movement.” . We had gone in for our 20-week ultrasound and gender reveal. It was a baby girl. Although we don’t understand why, God has given us unexplainable peace and comfort during this very difficult time. Yes, it still hurts and we have cried countless tears, but we know that we can trust the Lord. In the words of King David after the loss of his baby, “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me” (2 Sam 12:23). We don’t grieve as those who have no hope because we trust that we will see this little one again. We named her Annabell Elise. Annabell means “God has favored me”, and Elise means “God satisfies”. What a precious thing to know that when our daughter opened her eyes, the first thing she saw was the face of Jesus. Please pray for continued healing, not only physically but for our hearts as well. . “All the way my Savior leads me; What have I to ask beside? Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who through life has been my Guide? Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell! For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well, For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.” -Fanny Crosby

“We only had her for 20 weeks, Life is fragile and precious,” Joy-Anna wrote on Instagram. “So thankful the Lord gave her to us for that short time! She will be in our hearts forever!"

The entire Duggar clan took a moment to share a message for the devastated parents on social media. However, unlike the rest of the family, Amy Duggar's Instagram page remained dedicated to her ongoing pregnancy.

Amy posted a photo of herself on her Instagram account showing off her growing belly.  In the pic, she was walking around at a flea market in Arkansas while holding her belly. 

Fans felt the expectant mom should have waited a few more days.

The photo sparked immediate backlash towards the Duggar cousin. One fan felt the post was disrespectful especially since it was so soon after Joy’s miscarriage.

Fans felt the expectant mom should have waited a few more days before posting pictures of her pregnancy out of respect for her cousin. Other fans, however, took to her defense.

"Smdh just for a few days out of respect cant you knock off the baby posts?" questioned one Instagram user.

One fan commented, "KEEP UP WITH THE BABY POSTS! First time moms DESERVE all the baby posts they want! You growing a human, BE PROUD! Can’t wait to see this precious nursery!"

One supportive fan pointed out that Amy's happiness about her own pregnancy should not disappear. Amy herself also fired back at the comments.

She insisted she will not apologize for celebrating the events that are unfolding in her life. Amy went on to say in a second comment: 

“Also, after what my family has been through how dare you say that to me. This baby is bringing me so much happiness, do you even know how many tears I have cried lately?”

The incident she was talking about was the passing of her Grandmother a few weeks ago. Grandma Duggar passed away in a tragic drowning accident.

 She is heartbroken for Joy-Anna and Lauren. 

Amy was extremely close to the matriarch. She previously revealed she would talk to her grandmother on the phone or in person at least a few times a day.

She was devastated by the loss. Amy is also extremely close to her cousins and revealed that she is heartbroken for Joy and Lauren. Lauren had miscarried her baby last October but is currently expecting her second child.

Jessa Seewald also came to her cousin's defense. She took to the comments section to say:

"You’re a beautiful Mama. We all can’t wait to meet this little guy!"

Thankful for this daddy-to- be- who has been so loving and so patient with me this week. He has been working at 3130 while I have been taking some personal time away. Our plans to celebrate completely changed this week, instead of fishing with a fun picnic today we are mourning the loss of my sweet mema. It has been a very hard day and I couldn't have gotten through it without you right there beside me. ------------ ------------------------------- You are hilarious, determined, driven, faithful and caring @kingdillpickle our little boy will have such a good Godly man to look up to in his life and I can't wait till I see you hold him for the first time.💙 Thank you for wiping away my tears, and for always being there for me through the amazing times and the devastating times. I just adore you.
