Jessa Seewald gave her fans a new update on her pregnancy Thursday. The former “19 Kids and Counting” star took time to share two new photos of her growing baby bump.
E! Online reports that Jessa, 22, is not in her home state of Arkansas this week. One of Jessa’s update photo shows her posing next to husband Ben Seewald outside the Staten Island Ferry terminal in New York City. In the photo caption Jessa made sure to address their unborn child, adding the hashtag #BabySeewald.

In a second update photo Jessa shared Thursday, she said that she only has 11 weeks and 3 days left until she is due to deliver. “… At that point in your pregnancy where your belly button is acting like a pop-up turkey timer,” Jessa wrote to her followers.

And while Jessa’s sister, Jill Dillard, and mom, Michelle Duggar, were not included in her bump updates, several reports are claiming that they joined the parents-to-be for their New York City adventure. According to a report from the Inquisitr, the site Freeejinger captured several candid shots of the family on their trip, including one photo of Jessa, Michelle, Jill and her son, Israel David, posing outside a Starbucks in New York City’s Time Square Thursday night.
The Duggar family spotting comes one week after Jill, 24, announced on the Dillard family blog that she was planning to take a break from her extended mission trip. “This month we will be in language school, and then return to the U.S. for a short time before heading back to the field,” Jill wrote Aug. 3. The reality star left for Central America with her now 4-month-old son and husband Derick Dillard on July 5.
While the reason for their trip to New York is unknown, it may have something to do with their upcoming TLC documentary. The sisters are set to star in the network’s child sexual abuse awareness special, "Breaking the Silence,” which premieres Sunday, Aug. 30. Their involvement comes on the heels of their family’s molestation scandal. In May, it was revealed that their eldest brother, Josh Duggar, now 27, had molested them and several other underage girls as a teenager. As a result, TLC canceled “19 Kids and Counting."
