Abbie Duggar and her husband, John David Duggar, are expecting their first child in January and they couldn’t be more excited to meet their baby girl soon. Although baby bump photos from the expectant couple are few and far between, they recently shared a post that showed off her growing belly on Instagram. The stars of TLC’s Counting On posted a beach photo as they seem to be enjoying their last few weeks of being a family of two.
The snapshot shows John and Abbie standing on a beach with the ocean waves rolling behind them. Although the exact location of the photo wasn’t revealed, it looks to be relaxing, as the couple appears happy. Both of the reality stars were wearing sunglasses to protect their eyes from the sun’s glare. John David stood behind his wife with his arms wrapped around her. Both of their hands cradled the baby bump together.
Abbie was wearing a bright pink dress that was fitted high above her waistline, accentuating her belly. She threw on a dark blue sweater over her dress to seemingly keep herself from getting chilled while on the beach. The 27-year-old expectant mom had her curly hair styled in a side braid and a few wispy strands of her blond locks were blowing in the wind. Her husband of one year matched in a navy collared shirt, but opted for either khaki shorts or pants.
The caption that came with the snap appears to be written by Abbie. She referenced her coming arrival, but then went on to explain that she also loves caring for others. She is a licensed nurse and encouraged their followers to click a link that led to an US Weekly article revealing her plans to keep her license up to date just in case she chooses to go back to work after the baby is born. The article was posted earlier this month, but it seems to be a reminder for fans that this is certainly not the typical way things are done in the Duggar family. All of the women are stay at home moms while they are raising their families.
It was also revealed last month that Abbie has suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum — an extreme form of morning sickness. It was so bad that John David said she had to be hospitalized a few times. However, it looks like she is feeling better now that she is entering her third trimester.
