Baby Seewald is growing! Jessa Duggar shared her latest pregnancy milestone with her 170,000 Twitter followers on Wednesday, July 1, posting a photo of her baby bump at 22 weeks and three days. 

The 19 Kids and Counting star, 22, snapped a selfie to show her blossoming belly, captioning it, "At #22Weeks, #BabySeewald now weighs just over a pound!" 

The mom-to-be and her husband, Ben Seewald, first announced they were expecting back in April, not long after sister Jill Duggar gave birth to her first child with husband Derick Dillard

Jessa had been steadily documenting her pregnancy via social media until May, when news broke that her brother Josh Duggar had molested five young girls — including Jessa and Jill, who spoke out in an interview with Megyn Kelly — when he was a teenager.

As the scandal took over, Jessa and the rest of her family went on a social media hiatus. She returned to Twitter after a few weeks, though, sharing a photo of her first ultrasound on June 10.

A week later, she posted an update to her official website. "Our little family is, by God's grace, going to continue seeking to lovingly point people to Christ and encourage those who are down," the Arkansas native wrote on her blog.

"Baby Seewald is growing steadily and Mommy has been feeling some little, yet strong, kicks!" she added. "We recently had an ultrasound, but aren't revealing our firstborn's gender yet. Can't wait to welcome this blessing from God into the world!"
