Jessa Duggar is ready to open her home and her heart to a whole lot of love!
The pregnant star of Jill & Jessa: Counting On had her first ultrasound on last night’s episode of Counting On — and hinted that she may be expecting twins!
“Maybe we’ll hear two heartbeats,” she teased. “You never know!”
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!"
Though the 24-year-old was 18 weeks along, she had not yet had an ultrasound. Jessa’s older sister Jill — who is not only also pregnant with her second child, but also is a trained midwife — used a doppler to hear the baby’s heart for the first time, and predicted that the heartbeat she was hearing was a girl based on the speed of the baby’s heart rate.
Jill used the doppler to prove that Jessa may be right about the twins thing — since she heard a heartbeat at two different rates while listening to her sister’s tummy.
“It could be the same baby with variability in the heartbeat, or it could be two babies,” Jill explained. Jessa took this as a chance to remind viewers that twins run in the family (her mom, Michelle, gave birth to two sets of twins) and that they couldn’t be certain, as they had not yet had an ultrasound.
This is hardly the first time Jessa has hinted at the possibility of twins. Shortly after revealing her pregnancy, she said, “Double the work, double the diapers… We’re looking forward to whatever’s next.”
At the time, many believed she was referring to her two-year-old son, Spurgeon.
Jessa has never been shy about her desires to have a big family — she previously revealed that she and husband Ben Seewald are also trying to adopt.
“We both want to have a big family,” she admitted. “We are talking about our goals and the future with family. We have both talked about adoption and want to adopt, too.”
