Jessa Duggar is allegedly upset that the media has been ignoring her pregnancy. Jessa, who is married to Ben Seewald, is due to give birth on 1 November, on their first wedding anniversary.
Following Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal, TLC had cancelled 19 Kids And Counting from its network. According to People, the third daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar was hoping to have her pregnancy and childbirth televised like that of her older sister Jill Duggar's. The 24-year-old and husband Derick Dillard welcomed son Israel on 6 April, and the entire labour and delivery was aired in a TLC special.
"It is now bittersweet, because it's not lost on [Jessa] that Jill giving birth to Israel got an entire TLC special devoted to it," a source said.
"Jessa would have liked to have had the same sort of platform to give thanks, show what a miracle she feels her child is and express her gratitude," the insider added. "The show isn't there to chronicle this happy time, and even though she's posting on social media, the scandal still gets brought up by commenters. So much has changed for Jessa compared to what Jill experienced, and it can't be changed back. And that's sad for her."
Jessa has been active on social media, and has been posting updates of her growing baby bump. The couple even conducted a poll and asked people to vote on whether they think the pair will welcome a boy, a girl or even twins.
