Jinger Duggar Shows Off Baby Bump, Offers Final Pregnancy Update
Despite rumors that Jinger Duggar has secretly given birth, it appears that the beloved reality star is very much still pregnant.
The mom-to-be offered up some photographic of her current condition on Instagram last night:
“Almost there! Vuolo #38weeks4days,” she captioned the image.
Obviously, Jinger was able to say it all with just a few words in this case.
But she was feeling much more expressive in a recent interview with TLC.
“I get scared thinking about birth and labor,” she told her home network.
Yes, over the years, Jinger has earned her reputation as the most candid and forthcoming of the Duggar, and she’s cemented her claim to that title in the final weeks of her pregnancy.
When Us Weekly caught up with Jinger recently, the 24-year-old revealed that carrying a baby had taken a serious toll on her energy levels:
“I do think probably what surprised me most [about pregnancy] is just being so tired all the time,” she revealed.
“They’ve said, ‘Just take a nap, don’t feel bad when you need to lay down in the middle of the day.’”
“Especially when I was in all the morning sickness, I talked to them a lot about what they did, how they got through their morning sickness and I think that was some of the best advice — just resting, taking it easy.”
Jinger is regarded as a bit of a rebel in the Duggar clan, so it’s appropriate that her pregnancy hasn’t conformed to her family’s customs.
For starters, Jinger and her husband Jeremy Vuolo broke with convention by waiting almost a year after their marriage to get pregnant.
On top of that, Jinger will soon become the first of her sisters to give birth outside of the family’s home state of Arkansas.
She and Vuolo moved to Laredo, Texas shortly after getting hitched.
In recent weeks, it’s been rumored that Jinger and Jeremy will move to Los Angeles after the baby is born so that he can pursue a divinity school degree.
Needless to say, Jinger’s pumpkin will be living a much more worldly life than his or her cousins.
