Welcome, Daxton Ryan King

Cousin Amy's baby has arrived! Daxton Ryan King was born yesterday, October 9th, to Amy (Duggar) King and husband Dillon King. Baby Dax weighed 7 lbs, 8 oz, according to the exclusive article from People Magazine. At the recommendation of her doctor, Amy had a scheduled C-section due to her small frame and what her doctor said was an 85% chance of an emergency situation developing. Amy's son made his grand debut on his due date.

    1. Connie please take good care of yourself during this difficult time. I shall keep you in my prayers & thoughts. One thing alone would be difficult to deal with but both cancer & a brain aneurysm is very difficult to cope with. I hope you have a good medical team looking after you & you get all the treatment & care you need. On the plus side you enjoy your beautiful new granddaughter, I’m sure she will lighten up your days & bring you joy at this difficult time.

    4. I've prayed for you Connie, in Jesus' name -- that your doctors will have wisdom in advising and treating you, that you will have wisdom in deciding on how to proceed, that you will have peace and comfort through your treatment, for your ability to pay the medical bills, and for God's total healing.

    5. Connie, I am sure you will be OK. Stage 1 breast cancer has a 95% cure rate. It is not pleasant to have the operation and the daily radiation is not fun but be thankful your cancer was caught early. It will soon, as my GP told me, be just a bump in the road. I had Stage 1 tumors on both sides.

      I would suggest that you get physio therapy specialized in breast cancer and get whatever support you can get from your local cancer society. Learning how to calm yourself down with yoga breathing. It helped me. Also, talking with other breast cancer survivors helps. These women truly understand what you are feeling and will have helpful hints. Some have had clots too. A friend of mine did, with stage 2.

      Good luck, from a cancer survivor. Listen to your doctors and stay positive.

    6. Also, this is Cindy again the stage 1 survivor that had mammosite 5, your surgeon or oncologist should have a nurse navigator, get with them they can also help you to know what's out there. She's who got me on medical assistance(medicaid).

    7. Connie,this is Cindy I don't know what happened to my first post. But, I am an 11 year breast cancer survivor. I had a lumpectomy followed by mammosite 5 radiation( a 5 day 2 times a day for 8 minutes for woman over 50 whose cancer is caught early.)Please take care of yourself sending prayers. See my post above about getting with a nurse navigator. In Pennsylvania theres a program with medical assistance called the breast and cervical cancer program see if where you live offers that, also I own my home and did not lose it when I went on m a. That program is not based on income. Check with the cancer society, I received 2 compression bras. Love on your new grandbaby that will help you, try to stay positive(I know it's hard)

  9. What a beautiful baby & a lovely picture in general. Jill always looks so happy cuddling babies bless her. It’s nice with so many of the Duggar’s away in California that Jill was still around to go visit Amy in the hospital, she must be missing grandma Mary so much at this precious time in her life & I'm sure having her cousin visit was very nice for her & a chance to show off her beautiful little man.

  10. Congrats to Amy! Lovely he has arrived and looks well.

  11. Congrats to the Kings! Anyone else think Jill looks like she's aged here?

    1. Yes I see wrinkles near her eyes and forehead. She’s not even 30 yet.

    2. No, you're not the only one. I think so too.

    3. Me! I barely recognized her. I thought she was Michelle at first glance.

    4. Harsh hospital lighting doesn’t flatter anyone! BTW, would you tell someone to their face that they look like they’ve aged? If not, why do it on an internet blog?

      Delete
    5. Very rude comment. Harsh hospital lighting doesn’t flatter anyone.

      Delete
    6. I personally think Jill looks more beautiful than ever!

    7. Wow -- What motivates these comments on a post celebrating a precious new baby? Everyone's face is different and ages differently. Jill looks great. I hate to think what the comments would be if we all posted our pictures along with our ages. YIKES!

  12. Small frame? Amy?

    1. I know that’s what I was thinking. There must be some other reason she got a c-section. That’s odd a doctor would order a risky procedure like a c section because a woman is a small frame, I’ve seen much smaller women give birth naturally

      Delete
    2. Some women’s hips arnt as wide as others (doesn’t matter weight wise). I’m a nurse and iv seen so many women ignore doctors orders and then be rushed in. She’s smart to listen to her dr

    3. 7:45, you as a nurse should know that PELVIS size is what matters when it comes to birthing a baby, not their outer hip size.

    4. HER PELVIS/HIPS.

  13. Congrats to Amy and her husband!

    1. It certainly looks much lighter than in other pictures. My guess is yes.

    2. I think it was just weird lighting. :)

  18. Providers often tell petite women they are too small to give birth vaginally, especially if the baby is measuring big or labor has stalled, and should opt for a C-section because it’s safer. In truth, the number of women who truly have too narrow pelvises is low and has nothing to do with body size. The condition is called cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD).

    1. Exactly. We don't know what was going on with Amy. In any case she had her baby without the drama that we've seen with the Duggar girls who try home births that end up with emergency runs to the hospital to be cared for.

      Delete
    2. CPD is also related to the age of the mother. As women are waiting to have children, there are more than will experience this.

      Delete
    3. No provider makes recommendations based simply on a woman's height no matter what you believe. If that were true all these tiny Asian women would be having C-sections.

      Delete
    4. I've never heard of providers routinely telling small women they need C-sections. I know many tiny Asian women and NONE of them were told that. It appears Amy had some issues that caused the doctor to have concerns and she wisely opted to have a C-section rather than having a risky labor.

  19. Oh my goodness, very cute boy!! Wishing Amy a good recovery!!
