Not long now! Jessa Duggar is counting down the days till she gives birth to her first child with husband Ben Seewald, and she posted a pic on Instagram on Friday, Oct. 16, that showed how she's prepping for labor.

The former 19 Kids and Counting star shared a collage that showed her getting a bright and colorful pedicure and grabbing a frozen drink with Seewald's mom.

"My sweet mother-in-law treated me to a pumpkin spice drink from#MamaCarmens," she captioned the pics, "and Sierra insisted that I get something cheery painted on my toes in prep for labor! Y'all are spoiling me!"

The 22-year-old's due date is Nov. 1 — the couple's first wedding anniversary. Duggar revealed in a post on her family's website earlier this month that she and her husband know the baby's sex but are choosing to keep it a secret. "So far we haven't told anyone… but I didn't expect it to be so difficult to keep a secret," she admitted.

While she also said that Seewald has been calling their baby "Quincy," they haven't settled on a name yet. "We like the idea of using names with lots of meaning behind them," Duggar said, adding that they've been asking their siblings for name suggestions "and it's been fun to hear their ideas."

Duggar and her older sister Jill, who revealed earlier this year that they were among the victims molested by their eldest brother Josh when he was a teenager, will be returning to TV in two specials for TLC. As Us previously reported, the specials will focus of the sisters' lives as new wives and mothers. Jill, 24, and her husband, Derick Dillard, moved to El Salvador earlier this year with their baby, Israel, to do missionary work.
