Jessa says that baby Seewald, who is due on Nov. 1, "still wants to camp out" a little longer. The 19 Kids and Counting star took to Instagram on Friday to ask her followers for advice on a quirky trick that's rumored to help induce labor.

"So has anyone else tried the 'eating an entire fresh pineapple' thing for helping to bring on labor," the 22-year-old captioned a photo of herself holding a pineapple. "Apparently it doesn't work for everyone, 'cause I ate the whole thing yesterday... and still no signs of labor! Guess #BabySeewald still wants to camp out in there a little longer! Patience, Mama, patience."

A day earlier, Jessa announced that she was "feeling as big as a barn" in a photo of herself showing off her belly at 39 weeks and 4 days pregnant.

"Soooo ready to meet my baby," she wrote.

Her pregnancy isn't getting in the way of her festive fall season celebrations, however. On Wednesday, Jessa's mother-in-law, Guinn Seewald, treated the mom-to-be to a pumpkin spice drink from Mama Carmen's Coffee in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
