MORNING SICKNESS

The expecting mother revealed that she had been experiencing some pregnancy sickness during her trimester. After making it into the second trimester, Duggar has been feeling better. During a video on TLC's blog Duggar said:

"I'm feeling great. Glad to be out of the first trimester — I was pretty sick — but feeling good now."

The parents of three have had some experience when it comes to newborns who have equipped them with plenty of knowledge and skills, but Duggar is aware that there will be a transition phase as their family grows again.

COUNTING ON

Duggar's fourth pregnancy is sure to be part of "Counting On," with her marriage and previous three pregnancies all documented on the hit reality show.

Duggar and Seewald aren't the only ones in the family that are expecting. Duggar's brother Joseph Duggar and his wife Kendra Duggar are also expecting their third child.

The 25-year-old and his wife have their 2-year-old son Garret and their daughter Reneé who will be joined by a baby sister shortly. Their daughter will be the seventh granddaughter born in the last year.
