"31 weeks 4 days!" Duggar, 22, captioned the mirror selfie. "#BabySeewald." In the pic, the first-time mom-to-be wore an adorable polka-dot maternity top and kept her luscious brunette locks down.

Duggar — who is expecting her first child with her husband, Ben Seewald, in November — is focusing on herself these days amid brother Josh Duggar's ongoing scandals. (Josh is currently staying at the Reformers Unanimous center in Rockford, Ill., after admitting to cheating on his wife, Anna Duggar, via the adultery website Ashley Madison. In June, he confessed to molesting five underage girls, including Jessa and sister Jill, when he was a teenager.)

Last month, the pregnant star opened up about her baby nursery while attending a Q&A at the Southern Women's Fashion Show in Charlotte, N.C.

"We're keeping our nursery very neutral because we have a tiny house and our baby's room is also going to be our guest room, so we're keeping it neutral," Duggar said on Aug. 29. She added of her cravings: "I'm just craving ice cream! That's what I need right now." (Jill and her husband, Derick Dillard, welcomed son Israel in April.)

During the event, Seewald, 20, also noted what lessons he will teach their little one. "For raising kids, we want to be good parents and give them everything we can give them and have them honor the lord," he said. "My parents raised me and taught me the word of God from a young age and I appreciate that and hopefully I can learn to do that as well. I want to make sure we're giving them the attention they need so they don't have to go to other people."
