‘Counting On’ Fans Are Shocked Jinger Duggar Has Time to Take Naps While Pregnant With Baby No. 2
Jinger Duggar is feeling great. The Counting On star shared a pregnancy update with fans on June 22, saying she couldn’t believe she was already four months along. Baby no. 2 for the reality TV star and her former pro soccer player husband Jeremy Vuolo, 32, is due in November.
“It is hard to believe that I am already 18 weeks pregnant. Where has the time gone?” Jinger, 26, wrote. She also shared that her morning sickness had mostly passed and that she was enjoying her new maternity wardrobe (which has raised the eyebrows of some critics). But it was a comment she made about naps that got a few people talking.
Jinger Duggar says naps are ‘a necessary addition’ to her daily routine
Unlike her sister-in-law Abbie Duggar, it doesn’t sound like Jinger has suffered from severe morning sickness. She also said her “cravings haven’t been as intense as they were in those early days.” But she did admit that she is needing a lot of rest.
“I have felt a little more tired this week, making naps a necessary addition to my daily routine,” she wrote. “Can any of you pregnant mama’s relate? What is the second trimester like for you?”
Some commenters are ‘jealous’ that Jinger has time to nap
Jinger’s post prompted many of her followers to share their own pregnancy stories. But a few indicated that they were envious of Jinger’s ability to find time for herself while pregnant and caring for her nearly 2-year-old daughter Felicity.
“I’m honestly so jealous of moms who don’t work outside the home and have the luxury of taking naps,“ one commented.
Another agreed, saying they were “envious” of “stay home moms that have that privilege.”
Others were simply shocked that Jinger found time to sleep during the day. “You get naps? How?” one asked.
Jinger Duggar’s baby girl is due in November
Jinger is about halfway through her pregnancy, with her second child due to arrive sometime in November 2020. She and Jeremy are expecting a girl, she revealed in a May 28 Instagram post announcing the new addition to their family.
“Jeremy and I both guessed it was a girl, just a gut feeling we had. And we couldn’t be happier,” she wrote.
Jinger — who is one of 19 kids — said she can’t wait for Felicity to have a sibling.
“The bond that sisters share is unique, and one I cherish every day,” Jinger, who has eight sisters, shared. “After all these years, they’re still my best friends! I’m glad God’s giving that gift for Felicity to enjoy. As for me and Jeremy, we’ll definitely have our hands full! But there’s nothing else we’d rather carry.”
