The countdown has begun. 

Jessa Duggar is less than 10 days aways from her due date and to commemorate the occasion, she offered fans a glimpse of her forthcoming little bundle of joy. 

"Sitting here dreaming about the moment when we will meet our little one face-to-face...and wondering if our baby will carry more Seewald or Duggar characteristics and features!" Duggar captioned an Instagram collage of a photo of the ultrasound beside two baby photos of her and husband Ben Seewald.

"I'm thinking #BabySeewald will be a sweet mix of the two of us! What do you think? Just 10 more days till baby's due date."

Duggar, who tied the knot with Seewald in November 2014, is set to give birth on Nov. 1—coincidentally the same day as the couple's first wedding anniversary. 

While the happy pair has not yet revealed the sex of the baby, we're sure little Duggar will be picture perfect. 


Duggar has been keeping fans up to date on all things baby ever since she announced they were expecting in April, posting photo updates of her growing bump on Instagram. 

It's a much more joyous time for the couple after their family gained months of notorious publicity after reports of her oldest brother Josh Duggar's sexual abuse surfaced. Duggar and her sister Jill Duggar confirmed that they had been victims, but also came to his rescue. 

"I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying," she said in an interview with Fox. "In Josh's case, he was a boy, a young boy in puberty and a little too curious about girls and that got him into to some trouble and he made some bad choices, but really the extent of it was mild, inappropriate touching, on fully clothed victims, most of it while girls were sleeping."

While their claim to fame, the TLC reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, was subsequently canceled, Duggar and her sister announced they will try the limelight again by welcoming cameras into their new homes as wives and mothers in a spin-off seriesCounting On.

"Even with all the difficulties that my family has walked through, there's still a lot of exciting milestones ahead," Jessa promised in a preview special of the new show. "Ben and I are really excited to welcome our first little one into the world very soon."
