It's getting hard to keep count.
Just a few weeks after her sister Jill (Duggar) Dillard welcomed baby boy Israel
, Jessa (Duggar) Seewald revealed that she is pregnant.
Jessa, 22, and her husband Ben Seewald, 19, were just married on November 1
of last year and now the 19 Kids and Counting
stars are expecting a baby on their first wedding anniversary. "We are looking forward to being parents," Jessa gushed to People.
The third daughter to Jim Bob, 49, and Michelle Duggar, 48, is in her second trimester and says she's "feeling pretty good."
"The morning sickness was different every day," she says of her pregnancy. "It's getting better, but I'm still hanging on to the heartburn. And I don't have any super serious food cravings."
Jessa says she took a pregnancy test before Sunday church recently and then brought it to show her new husband. "I said, 'Hey Ben, guess what? Yeah, you're a dad.' We couldn't believe it," she recalls. "We are so excited. We have started talking baby names. It is one of those things that is so special, picking a name for a baby."
Jessa's baby news means her sister's son Israel
will have a cousin to play with that'll definitely make some already cute pics
even cuter! Jill, 23, and Derick, 26, welcomed their baby boy on April 6 after a whopping 70-hour labor
that ended in an emergency C-section. However, the reality star says her sister's story doesn't scare her.
"I am not comparing, not worrying about what could happen, we are just getting prepared," she shares. "I think having this first year together to share our lives, just the two of us, has been special. We are definitely excited to be parents."
Her husband adds, "We are trying to take it one day at a time. We pray every night that God helps us be good parents. We are getting advice from other parents."
Jessa and Ben have expressed interest in adopting
in the past, and insist that they are still planning to do this one day. "Our hearts haven't changed on adoption," Jessa says. According to People,
the agency the couple is working with requires a couple to be married for two years. "We are still making plans."
