19 Kids and Counting star Jessa Duggar has shared some exciting news with her fans.

On the Seewald Family blog, the expectant mom--20 weeks along in her pregnancy--announced that she can feel her baby kick.

"Baby Seewald is growing steadily and Mommy has been feeling some little, yet strong, kicks! We recently had an ultrasound, but aren't revealing our firstborn's gender yet. Can't wait to welcome this blessing from God into the world" Jessa Duggar Seewald wrote.

Jessa went on to share Bible verses with her readers.

"Here are some verses of exhortation for you all: "Therefore seeing we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily ensnare us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God." -Hebrews 12:1-2," she wrote.

The 19 Kids and Counting star has spent more time in the limelight recently than she wanted. Both Jessa and sister Jill Duggar Dillard spoke out in a televised interview recently, admitting they are both victims of brother Josh Duggar's sexual molestations.

In light of what both siblings--as well as two additional girls in the 19 Kids and Counting family--have experienced, it's good to see Jessa Duggar getting back to what really matters in love--her marriage and the upcoming arrival of her first child.

Both Jill and Jessa Duggar returned to social media in the past week, with Jessa sharing a photo of her ultrasound and Jill sharing a picture of her two-month-old baby.

Josh and Anna Duggar also made their return to social media, sharing photos of their son on his birthday.

Do you expect the 19 Kids and Counting family will soon put Josh Duggar's sexual molestation scandal behind them? Or will the media not allow for that to happen?
