She’s ready to pop!
Jessa Duggar has been sharing updates of her baby bump throughout her second pregnancy — and now the pregnant reality TV star announced that she’s only one week away from giving birth!
She posted a side-by-side photo of her baby bump at 39 weeks from when she was pregnant with her first son, one-year-old Spurgeon — whom she shares with her husband Ben Seewald — and a photo of her baby bump at 39 weeks with her current pregnancy.
Fans flooded Jessa’s comments with guesses about her unborn baby’s gender, and many of them guessed that her next baby will be a girl judging from how much smaller her bump is compared to the one she had with Spurgeon. And with one week away from her due date, other fans offered their best wishes.
“I pray that this birth is a lot easier than the first one,” one fan wrote. Another commented, “You look amazing. Have a healthy and safe delivery.”
Just as much awe and wonder on my part as I had with Baby #1! 😍 It's amazing to see #BabySeewald2 kicking and moving around. So thankful for this precious new life! 💞 I'm always wanting Ben to see baby's movements, but from his perspective they're not always super visible. I guess my viewpoint is simply the best! So I captured this for him and he was like "Whoaaa... I see it!"
Jessa’s first birth was documented on her TLC reality TV series Jill & Jessa: Counting On — a spin-off of the Duggar family’s now-cancelled show 19 Kids and Counting. The 24-year-old planned to have a natural, home delivery — but after 27 hours in labor, she was rushed to the hospital when her midwife noticed that she was bleeding more than normal.
But even though her due date is nearing, baby no. 2 could arrive a few days late. Jessa’s son Spurgeon was born four days past his due date.
