Jessa Seewald has experienced a heartbreaking moment moms will find all too familiar.
The pregnant reality star posted a photo to Instagram captioned, “How is it that being pregnant can make this such an emotional moment?”
The attached photo was of a box of Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets that was almost empty — only one nugget was left. She finished off the caption with a sad-faced emoji and the hashtag #TheLastNugget.
Fans were quick to chime in with their support for Seewald during this trying time. Less than a day after it was posted, the photo had racked up nearly 100,000 likes and thousands of comments, including many from users who share the belief that the last nugget is a difficult time for any woman, not just a pregnant one.
“I’m not even pregnant but seeing one chicken nugget left makes me feel emotional too,” one user posted. Another added, “That’s one of the wonderful things about being pregnant, you can cry at the simplest things and it’s ok (sic)! Cry away! Enjoy every minute whether crying or laughing because you have a human being growing inside you.”
The 19 Kids and Counting star is approaching 24 weeks pregnant with her first child with her husband, Ben Seewald. She’s been keeping fans updated on the growth of her baby bump via Instagram, even as her family has been facing a number of scandals that started when it came to light that her older brother, Josh Duggar, had molested underage girls when he was a teen.
TLC pulled reruns of the family’s show from the air following the controversy and there’s still been no word on when (or if) it might return. For now, die-hard fans will have to stick to Instagram to keep up with the mom-to-be’s updates.
