“Congratulations Ben & Jessa on your pregnancy! It was so fun to have all 3 of us pregnant together!!!”

In her second trimester, the third daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, “19 Kids and Counting,” says “We are looking forward to being parents.”

“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 made news during a recent visit to Washington, D.C. where she expressed strong anti-abortion sentiments.

The Duggars, with their strong Christian beliefs that include no touching, not even kissing, until engaged and then only chaste kisses until the wedding is final, are easy targets for liberal feminists.
