Check out those curves! Counting On star Jessa Duggar took to Instagram with a pregnancy update on April 5, revealing that she’s now 31 weeks along with her bundle of joy. The TLC alum showed off her growing baby bump in a glowing new selfie and confirmed that she’s “definitely a bit bigger” than last time around. Jessa joked how the “Duggar genes grow ‘em big!”
“31 weeks. Pardon the toothpaste splatters on the mirror,” the 26-year-old captioned the snap, showing the star cradling her baby bump in a maternity dress while posing in front of the mirror. Jessa is currently expecting her third child with her husband, Ben Seewald, due late this spring.
As fans may recall, the reality star previously addressed how most of her sisters have eight to 10 pound babies, during TLC’s two-part birth special which aired in 2018, and she brought it up again during her latest pregnancy update.
“Besides the twins, my mom had all 8-9 lb. babies for the first half, and then 7-8 lb. babies for the second half,” Jessa wrote. “Most of the grand babies have been in the 8-9 lb. range so far, and one was a little over 10 lb.! 😳 Maybe we’ll end up somewhere in the middle this time.”
Jessa also candidly discussed an “Old Wives Tale” that having heartburn while pregnant means that the baby will have a luscious head of hair. “If there’s any truth in that, then this one ought to have a head full,” the reality star joked. “I mean it could just be coincidence, but I had heartburn with Spurgeon too, and he was born with a decent amount of hair,” she added. “Probably just has to do with specific foods in my diet more than anything.”
He or she will be here very soon!
