The Duggar family could be welcoming a new addition any day now. Jessa Seewald, the pregnant daughter of “19 Kids and Counting” patriarchs Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, is preparing for labor as her due date nears.
Jessa has been keeping her fans updated on her pregnancy every step of the way. And as her Nov. 1 due date quickly approaches, she’s excited to continue sharing her journey. Over the weekend the 22-year-old former TLC reality star took to Instagram to reveal how she’s spending her final days before her first child arrives.
“My sweet mother-in-law treated me to a pumpkin spice drink from #MamaCarmens, and Sierra insisted that I get something cheery painted on my toes in prep for labor!” Jessa shared. “Ya’ll are spoiling me!”
As previously reported, Jessa is planning to deliver her first child via home birth. The mom-to-be and her husband, Ben Seewald, made the decision based on the “wonderful experiences” of relatives and friends. However, the two do have a backup plan should they run into problems. She revealed that their Plan B involves a transfer to the hospital should it be deemed necessary.
But Jessa is focusing on the positives, not potential complications.
“Being that I am currently pregnant, I think I am most looking forward to holding this precious little one in my arms for the first time! Sometimes I just sit and wonder what our baby’s little face will look like,” she wrote on the Duggar Family Blog in September. “Will we see more pronounced ‘Seewald’ or ‘Duggar’ features? Will baby be born with Daddy’s blue eyes, or Mommy’s curly hair?”
Jessa and Ben have not shared the gender of their baby; however, fans of the “19 Kids and Counting” couple have revealed their predictions online. Based on a poll created by the parents-to-be, their supporters believe that they will be welcoming a baby girl.
Fans can catch up with Jessa and her sister, Jill Dillard, when TLC airs specials on the two Duggar children this year.
