Fans are convinced Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth — who tied the knot back in May — conceived before getting married, and now fans can’t stop obsessing over her due date. The Counting On star hasn’t posted many pics of her baby bump since announcing the news, so people are letting their curiosity run wild.

After sharing a sweet note on Christmas day, people began commenting — rather randomly — about when she’s due. One detective wrote, “I’m not sure she’s said when she is due (I don’t really pay that close attention), but based on the few pics I’ve seen, she looks due closer to mid-January.” She added, “Also, she mentioned in her announcement that the baby had fingerprints. She would have only been two-three months, if she got pregnant on her wedding night, however, a fetus doesn’t get fingerprints until the fourth month. I wouldn’t be surprised if she ‘gave birth early.’ Guess they are betting on her going over her actual due date like her sisters did.” Um, homegirl is definitely paying attention! Another nosy fan added, “It’s been wayyy too long sing we’ve seen baby Forsyth. Picture, if you’re willing to share, pleeease??”

Back in October, the duo posted a rare photo of Joy’s growing baby bump on their joint Instagram, but it was the caption that held the biggest due date hint. “Can’t wait to meet our baby!!” wrote Joy. “I got to feel it kick for the first time a few days ago!!! Soooooo amazing!!! It’s already about the size of a bell pepper and weighs around half a pound!!! #childrenareagiftfromGod #westandforlife.”

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to Google how far along a woman has to be for the baby to be bell-pepper-sized and kicking. Baby Center says that this would be around 18 weeks, when the baby is “7 ounces and is roughly 5 1/2 inches long,” and starts “flexing his arms and legs – movements that you’ll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead.” If Joy-Anna was 18 weeks at the time, then the baby will be born in February 2018! Only time will tell.

Counting On returns this spring.
