With elder sister Jill Duggar still recovering from her emergency C-section after giving birth to her first child, Jessa Duggar seems to have come along very well, as she is now in her second trimester of her pregnancy.
The 22-year-old is expecting her first child with husband Ben Seewald and sources say that though she had been having occasional trysts with morning sickness, she is doing well.
"Jessa's pregnancy is going well so far," an insider told E! News. "She has barely been sick, but she did have a spell for about three weeks earlier but feels great now." The source added Jessa "has been tired and hungry more but is doing very well."
The "19 Kids and Counting" star and her husband have taken to Instagram to keep their fans updated. She recently posted a picture of her pregnancy cravings – a burger and a Jamocha Sahke from Arby's.
And her recent outing to the Institute for Creation Research in Texas, on 7 May for a little tour and to meet some of the scientists proves that the to-be mother is feeling quite well at this stage of her pregnancy.
Jessa's recent photo update on Instagram at the institute showed her in a loose-fitted orange and navy blue top that clearly showed her baby bump. "This morning, Jessa and I had the privilege of visiting the Institute for Creation Research! We got to tour and meet all the scientists there! Really cool! Got to chat with Dr. Jason Lisle," Ben captioned the picture on his profile.
The baby is due on 1 November, which coincides with the couple's first wedding anniversary. And though the couple plans on revealing the sex of the baby later this month, they have already started picking names for their little one.
"We are so excited. We have started talking baby names," Jessa revealed to People. "It is one of those things that is so special, picking a name for a baby."
She also mentioned that she has been getting pregnancy tips from her older sister Jill, who along with husband Dereck Dillard, recently attended the church to baptise their new born boy Israel David.
