Jessa Duggar's pregnancy update draws surprisingly mixed reactions (PHOTO)
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald don't have to wait long before they become first-time parents, but for now, they're excited to share their pregnancy journey with fans.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Jessa posted another picture of her large baby bump as she posed for a photo in a tight-fitting Aztec-patterned top. She simply captioned the post with, "36 weeks 4 days."
There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the Duggar clan as of late, with the most recent upset concerning Jill and her husband Derick Dillard's missionary work, and the anger directed at the family is evident by the comments on Jessa's post.
caileybois wrote, "Jessa is a stupid slut," and another user slammed her, saying, "Jessa looks like f***ing shit."
"Don't feed the trolls! They are sad, sad people with deep insecurities and issues only Jesus can fix. Pray for them and move on; interaction only emboldens them," tina_loves_doug1980 wrote in Jessa's defense.
But there are also people who are happy for Jessa, and can't wait for baby Seewald's arrival (which is on Nov. 1, the same date as the couple's wedding anniversary).
"You'll be happy you have these pics to look back on! Best wishes for the expected arrival! God bless!" dawniecleveland wrote.
Another fan, sroseguth, shared her happiness for the reality star, writing, "Ooh boy its [sic] getting closer soon you will be holding you're [sic] baby im [sic] sooo stinking happy for you @jessaseewaldgood luck on the delivery you're gonna make one amazing mamma."
User ahubert24 shared similar thoughts with a message of encouragement for Jessa. It read, "You are going to be a great mother can't wait to see new baby... I really do look up to y'all and I love the updates that y'all put up."
While fans of the couple will be excited to learn there is only around three weeks to wait until Jessa gives birth (and the gender of her child will finally be revealed), it's evident that not everyone shares their joy.
