Jessa Duggar has less than a week to go before her due date. She and hubby Ben Seewald are in the final countdown. The former 19 Kids and Counting family is in the midst of several celebrations--the baby being the most exciting by far. The baby is due on the same day Jessa and Ben will celebrate their first wedding anniversary.

Joy-Anna Duggar turned 18 on Wednesday. Jessa Duggar shared birthday wishes with her sister via Instagram.

"Happy birthday, Joy Joy! Love you so much, and I'm so blessed to have you as my sister! ? You light up the world around you and bring love and joy everyone you meet! ? Praying God's blessings over you in this new year!" Jessa captioned the following photo of Joy-Anna Duggar.

Three days after her baby's due date, Jessa Duggar Seewald turns 23. Just over a week ago, Jessa's upcoming motherhood was lauded with a baby shower.

Do you suppose the 19 Kids and Counting family is sick of eating cake?

Jill Duggar Dillard and her family--husband Derick and son Israel--wished Joy-Anna Duggar happy birthday via Instagram just like Jessa.

"We love you joy joy! Happy birthday! #joyduggar," Jill captioned a picture of her, Derick and Israel holding up a sign for the birthday girl.

Maybe Jessa Duggar will surprise everyone--herself included--and have her baby earlier than expected. In addition to the joy of the baby's arrival, that would give the Duggar family a few extra days between celebrations.

Can you believe there's less than a week left until Jessa Duggar Seewald's due date?
