Anna Duggar was prominently featured in TLC's three-part special Jill & Jessa: Counting On. In the final episode, which aired on Sunday, Anna compared the pain she is suffering over hubby Josh Duggar's infidelity and pornography addiction to the ongoing contractions she felt when preparing to give birth to each of her four children.

"At one point," Anna Duggar says, "I was like, 'I feel like I've been in labor for like days.' It's like when you're in labor, you just make it through the next contraction and go on and I think there's been a lot of that lately, of just taking the next step and going on."

Jessa Duggar Seewald and her husband Ben, along with their baby boy Spurgeon, live in the house Anna Duggar lived in with hubby Josh Duggar and their four children, before Josh's sex scandals made news.

"It's special being here because the house is so different, and it's definitely Jessa and Ben's house, but there are a lot of fond memories of starting out here," Anna said during Sunday night's episode of Jill & Jessa: Counting On.

"It's kind of a tender spot to go back and be in what was our starter home. There are a lot of sweet memories running through my mind. It was good to be back and remember and I guess have some time to look back," she adds.

"We'll see what God has in store for the future," Anna Duggar says, always relying on her strong Christian faith to see her through.

According to Jessa Duggar, sister-in-law Anna is doing okay, but still finds life "challenging."

Fans have no doubt enjoyed seeing Anna Duggar on Jill & Jessa: Counting On, and are hoping against hope that TLC decides to expand the show beyond it's three-part special. Many are hoping it becomes the 19 Kids and Counting spinoff.

Anyone who has experienced labor contractions knows Anna Duggar's pain is real.
