Could Jinger Duggar's baby be coming early... or could she already be here? That's what fans are wondering after Jinger's husband Jeremy Vuolo shared two photos of her sisters Jana Duggar and Jessa Duggar, along with Jana's bestie and Jessa's husband Ben Seewald, and their son Spurgeon on June 25. The siblings came for a visit to Laredo, TX, where Jinger and Jeremy live, while Jinger is dangerously close to her due date, so we can't help but think they might be there to help her through it!
The two would certainly come in handy while Jinger delivered her first child: Jessa is a mother of two while Jana has worked under a midwife as a birthing assistant in the past. Plus, Jeremy could probably use the moral support from another dad like Ben. The sisters could just be enjoying a simple visit, but it seems odd that they would come right before her due date rather than while she was giving birth or after she had the baby.
And this isn't the first evidence that Jinger may have already welcomed her little one. Jer shared a new baby bump photo featuring his wife a day earlier, and the caption stirred up a frenzy amongst fans. "ETA: soon," the soon-to-be dad simply wrote in the caption, and that was all fans needed to know before they flooded the comments with their theories about whether Jinger was in labor or not. "Is Jinger in labor?" one fan asked, and another stated it as if it was a fact. "She is in labor!!! Wonderful," another fan wrote.
But other fans weren't as convinced. "From her posts, she'd only be around 36 and a half weeks pregnant. Hopefully she's not in labor and baby stays in for a few more weeks before making her big arrival," one fan pointed out.
That fan is right. While it isn't completely rare that women could go into labor early, it would not be a good thing for Jinger's baby to be nearly four weeks early. Her last baby bump update revealed that she was 34 weeks pregnant, so she is about 36 weeks now — and counting.
Honestly, when Jeremy wrote "soon," he probably meant that they were in the home stretch of Jinger's pregnancy and soon could mean any time in the few weeks. Jinger and Jeremy's first child is due at some point in July, and so far it seems like Jinger's pregnancy has been a healthy one, so fans are sending well wishes and hoping she will also have a healthy and safe delivery.
"Congrats to you both... Wishing you a smooth labor [and] recovery," one fan wrote, while another commented, "You look amazing [Jinger]! Best wishes for a speedy labor and delivery."
