Jessa Duggar’s second baby is here to stay – and she didn’t forget to Instagram about it! Jessa is more than halfway through her second pregnancy, and she finally posted a picture of her baby bump.
Unlike her first pregnancy, during which Jill and Jessa Counting On star plastered her social media outlets, as well as Seewald family blog, with pictures of her growing baby bump, this time around, she has not taken to her Instagram to show her progress off.
That does not mean that she is not thrilled about having her second baby with Ben Seewald, her husband of fewer than two years.
“We are overjoyed to announce that Spurgeon has a new title in life as ‘big brother,'” she wrote on her family blog. “We are so thankful that God is adding to our family. 2017 is shaping up to be a wonderful year already and we know Spurgeon will do a great job in his new role. Having Spurgeon has been such a wonderful blessing and we cannot wait to see the face of this sweet new baby (or babies!).”
Whether her second pregnancy is harder than the first or that she just feels that it doesn’t feel new anymore, Jessa seems more willing to share the news spotlight with other members of the Duggars.
For example, her older sister, Jill, has been on the news about being possibly pregnant again. While the Duggars have not confirmed the good news, either on Counting On or Instagram, the fans have been avidly searching for evidence.
“Is Jill Duggar pregnant with baby No. 2? Some fans seem to think so after seeing what many believe to be a baby bump on Jill & Jessa: Counting On,” reports In Style Magazine. “Many fans took to Twitter to speculate that Jill — who has a one-year-old son, Israel, with hubby Derick Dillard — is with child.”
Jill has not uploaded any new content on her Instagram in over two weeks. One of the last pictures she uploaded was of her year-and-a-half old baby boy Israel during a family outing to pumpkin patch.
Maybe the Dillards are nearing the time that they have to go back to Central America to continue their missionary work. Jessa had expressed before that she was thrilled to have her sister and her baby Israel in the US again as they continue their spin-off show, Counting On.
“We’re all really excited,” Jessa said according to Us Weekly. “For most everybody, it’s been nearly 10 months since they’ve got to hang out with them and see them in person. Jill and I have had so much in common over these past three years. It’s been difficult for me not to have that connection with her, sister to sister — now mom to mom. So we’re looking forward to having them back.”
Having her older sister back in the US and now experiencing winter coming, it looks like Jessa and her husband Ben Seewald are more in the mood of settling down and nesting. Their latest family blog post about their family walks has shown that they are in the period in their lives to take things slowly.
“It was starting to rain, so we didn’t stay out too long, but it gave us a chance to unwind a bit and have some time together,” Jessa wrote.
“A walk is a perfect time to enjoy each other’s company, appreciate God’s creation or talk about the day,” she continued. “With a little planning ahead, you could bring a blanket and a lunch and have a meal together in the great outdoors! We plan on getting in many more family walks before the weather gets too frigid.”
