Jessa Duggar and hubby Ben Seewald are expecting their first baby in November, and Jessa is fast realizing how pregnancy can play with her emotions. On the heels of saying goodbye to sister Jill Duggar Dillard, hubby Derick Dillard, and baby Israel--which was a very emotional moment for Jessa Duggar--she has now faced another episode of emotional turmoil.

The 19 Kids and Counting star shared a big disappointment with her followers on Instagram earlier this week.

"How is it that being pregnant can make this such an emotional moment? #TheLastNugget," she captioned the shot.

Clearly Jessa Duggar's pregnancy emotions are getting the best of her.

In other Jessa Duggar news, she appears to have defied the rules set forth by parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar on the 4th of July. The Duggar women and girls have long adhered to a very strict policy of wearing very modest clothing. That means dresses or skirts--knee-length or longer--all the time. Even their swimsuits are that long.

Jessa Duggar and hubby Ben Seewald posed in front of a swimming pool, and Jessa--gasp--wore board shorts.

"Happy 4th from our little family to yours!" she captioned the Instagram shot.

Is this further proof that pregnancy emotions are getting the best of Jessa Duggar Seewald? Might they lead to some permanent changes--especially where her wardrobe is concerned? Jessa Seewald is a beautiful girl, but she wears some incredibly dowdy duds.

The important thing, of course, is that Jessa's pregnancy is proceeding smoothly. After the stress the young mom-to-be experienced with the recent media frenzy about Josh Duggar's sexual molestation scandal, it's good to know that all is well.

Jessa has started to follow sister Jill Duggar's method of sharing a progression of her growing belly in photos from week to week. It's fun to see and hear how she's feeling at each stage of her pregnancy.

Do you think Jessa Duggar got in trouble with her parents when the photo of her in board shorts hit the internet?
