Jessa Duggar Seewald was lauded at a co-ed fall-themed baby shower in recent days, surrounded by many of the 19 Kids and Counting family members and lots of dear friends. Also on the invite list was TLC. They had their cameras rolling for an upcoming episode of the three-episode special that fans (and like the Duggar family, too) hope will become the 19 Kids and Counting spinoff. Jill & Jessa: Counting On will air in December.
Due on November 1st, if Jessa Duggar's baby arrives on her due date, she and hubby Ben Seewald will have a double celebration. November 1st is their first wedding anniversary.
Recent photos indicate Jessa will soon give birth.

“She’s looking the part,” a source tells People magazine of Jessa Duggar Seewald. "She's adorable. She didn't gain any weight in her face at all. She's absolutely flawless!"
Like sister Jill Duggar Dillard, Jessa Duggar has shared pregnancy progression photos every few weeks to keep friend and fans apprised of the big countdown.
Jessa Duggar's most recent post is a 3-D ultrasound of the baby they refer to as "Quincy." In the post, she compares the baby's features with her baby picture and one of Ben's, too.
"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! 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!" Jessa captioned the post.
Jessa Duggar no doubt received many wonderful gifts for her baby at her shower. Since it was co-ed, dad Jim Bob Duggar, brother-in-law Derick Dillard, and of course hubby Ben Seewald were all on hand to join in the fun. Noticeably absent, however, were Josh and Anna Duggar. Josh is in a rehab facility in Illinois, receiving faith-based counseling for his "sexual sins." Jessa Duggar was one of the siblings Josh Duggar sexually molested when he was a teen. Jessa has also been the most vocal about Josh's actions. The pain Jessa and Jill Duggar experienced at the hands of Josh through that sex scandal and a more recent one, when he was discovered to have two Ashley Madison accounts on the cheater's website, and admitted to cheating on Anna Duggar, comes to light in a clip of the upcoming TLC show.
Even though Jessa Duggar will have given birth by then, fans are no doubt looking forward to seeing her feted at her baby shower, surrounded by members of the 19 Kids and Counting family.

The countdown is certainly on for Jessa Duggar Seewald. She has just over a week to go before her due date. Do you think Jill Duggar--who is a midwife--will be on hand for Jessa's labor and delivery?
Do you predict a baby boy or a girl for Jessa and Ben?
