Joy-Anna Duggar’s Followers Think She Looks Ready to Have Her Baby After Her Independence Day Photos
The Duggars are famous for having a huge family, and now, it’s Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s adult kids who are hogging the spotlight for starting families of their own. Joy-Anna Duggar is getting plenty of attention these days for her current pregnancy. While she has a 2-year-old son, Gideon, her last pregnancy sadly ended in miscarriage at 20 weeks. And now that she’s currently expecting a baby girl, she’s posting lots of updates for her followers.
Joy-Anna’s due date is quickly approaching — and her Independence Day photos are making followers think she could be due at any time. Here’s what they’re saying about her growing baby bump.
Joy-Anna Duggar’s son, Gideon, was over 10 pounds at birth
The Duggars have notoriously difficult births, and Joy-Anna experienced difficulties with Gideon. The mom had high hopes that she would be able to give birth at home, but there were complications during labor. In Touch Weekly notes Joy-Anna’s midwife discovered the baby was breech after Joy-Anna was already laboring for 20 hours. Because of this, she had to go in for an emergency C-section.
“Before I went into labor, having a C-section was my greatest fear,” Joy-Anna told People, according to Romper. “That was one of the things that I was scared of. I didn’t want to have to have a C-section.”
Not only was Gideon breech, but he was also the biggest Duggar baby yet. Romper notes the little boy was 10 pounds, 3 ounces when he was born. And Jim Bob found that the circumference of Gideon’s head was 15 inches. Michelle noted that the largest of her 19 kids had a head circumference of 14 inches.
She’s now over 30 weeks pregnant with a little girl
We’re not sure if Joy-Anna’s next child will be quite as large as Gideon, but we’re sure the excited mom will keep fans updated. Back in March, she posted a photo of her with her husband, Austin Forsyth, and Gideon to announce her latest pregnancy to Instagram. And she also gave a detailed update of her entire experience via YouTube, as she and Austin are stepping away from Counting On.
According to Joy-Anna’s YouTube update, the beginning of her pregnancy made her feel uncertain. Her doctors told her her numbers weren’t where they should be after she experienced spotting. But after a few weeks, it seems the pregnancy was viable. Now, she can expect a healthy baby girl in August.
Joy-Anna posted a 30-week update for her followers as well. In the photo, she looks healthy and happy as she’s showing off her baby bump.
Fans are commenting on her baby bump
Now that Joy-Anna has just a month to go before her baby girl is due, fans are really noticing her growing bump. And they commented on it after Joy-Anna posted photos from her Independence Day celebration with Carlin Bates.
“Happy 4th of July!” Joy-Anna simply captioned her photo. And the first photo in the series shows her and Bates cradling her 8-month baby bump.
“Wow, baby girl has popped! You look beautiful Joy!” a follower commented.
“Wow – you look ready to pop any second!” another wrote.
“So cute looks like joy swallowed a watermelon,” yet another added.
As the due date approaches, we’re hoping we’ll get plenty more updates from Joy-Anna and Austin!
