Jessa Duggar Seewald and her husband Ben Seewald are still waiting for their first child, who was due on their wedding anniversary on 1 November, as the reality show star turned 23 on 4 November.
The first-time parents appear eager to welcome their new baby, and they are bidding away time by taking a poll on how much baby Seewald would weigh.
"We've been taking a poll with the Duggar and Seewald families over the past few weeks, and everyone is trying to guess how much they think #BabySeewald might weigh at birth..." Jessa wrote in an Instagram post. "I was the biggest out of all my siblings, weighing 9lbs 15oz-- and Ben weighed 8lbs 15oz. Haha! I'd say it's very possible we could have a chubby little baby!" she added.
Like most of her relatives, Jessa is also planning to have a home birth, but on the off chance that complications arise, she will be transferred to a hospital, Jessa said in a statement featured on the Duggar Family Blog.
"Our plan is to have a home birth. We have lots of relatives and friends who have had wonderful experiences with giving birth at home, and we are excited and hopeful that our experience will be the same. But we also realize that sometimes (as in Jill's case) a transfer to the hospital may be necessary, and our birth plan definitely includes a plan B," the post read.
Jill suffered a painful 70-hour labour before she was rushed to the hospital for a C-section. Like Jessa, Jill too had planned to have a home birth before painful contractions kicked in.
