Grand-Duggar #17 Coming Soon

As Christmas and New Year's are quickly approaching, so is Abbie Duggar's due date. She is already 36 weeks pregnant, with the baby due around John and Jana's 30th birthday (January 12th). For those who haven't heard, it's a girl, which will bring the Duggar grandchild count up to eight girls and nine boys.

    2. Doesn't everyone know he's a pilot.....how could anyone miss it with a plane themed everything 😁

    3. Heaven forbid they have a strong interest in what he does.

  2. Baby is coming so soon!! I hope Abbie is feeling better by now. I had troubles with one of my pregnancies, and felt so sick the whole time. Not fun, but growing a baby is hard work! I hope she knows this may not happen with future pregnancies. They are all unique

  4. Can't think of a better 30th birthday present for John-David. That is so sweet. Hopefully Abbie's been feeling better after suffering from HG (hyperemesis gravidarum)...a friend of ours suffered until the day she delivered. I hope that wasn't Abbie's experience.

  5. Hope Abbie is feeling better with her HG now & hopefully she hasn’t had it severe all through her pregnancy. Wishing her well for the next four weeks & hope the birth goes smoothly for her.

    1. Quick? Who knows. But it can be safe, or much safer, if she chooses a hospital birth.

      Delete
    2. 12:24, hospital does not =safer. Statically home births are safer as long as you have no health problems, as unnecessary interventions are used.

      Delete
    3. 12:05. The Duggar’s have proven multiple times home birth is NOT safer.

  8. Can’t wait to see the baby!!! How exciting!!! Wonder who’s going to be expecting next...I’m hoping Jill! Or Jinger!!!

    1. I think Jinger will be next, then Joy, then Jill.

      Delete
    2. I predict Joy, then Jinger, then hopefully Jill. There could be 4 more 2020 births but I predict 3 2020 births.

      Delete
    3. I think Joy will be next. I expect Jinger to wait a while, maybe get pregnant about the time that Felicity turns two. I think Jill will probably wait until Derick is finished with school before she has another baby.

      Delete
    4. Well, Felicity will be 2 in 7 months.

  9. Nice photo. Hope she is doing well.

  10. Have you got a name picked out yet. Congratulations on your precious little gift that the lord blessed you with

    1. I’m guessing Jetterina. Because, you know, John David is a pilot.

      Delete
    2. I read somewhere they have a name picked and it was easy for them to think of one.

      Delete
    3. 12:13. Literally LOL’d! Best guess yet😂

      Delete
    4. Jetterina?? Who would do that to their child....yuck!

      Delete
    5. 3:15. I think you missed the joke from the OP. It’s a spoof because of how many, many, many times the “John David is a pilot” theme comes up.

      Delete
    6. I think they might just go with the J names. Who knows, they might name their daughter January!

      Delete
    7. I think Amelia would be a great name.

    23. I remember Jim Bob and Michelle had a problem saying names of all their grandkids :). They forgot Felicity I think. Duggars had all grandsons except Mackynzie and Meredith (both Anna's daughters). It was like raining boys -- Michael, Marcus, Israel, Spurgeon, Henry, Samuel, Mason, Gideon, Garrett.... and then Felicity was born and started the girls trend -- Ivy, Addison, Bella, Maryella and now Abbie's daughter coming soon.

      Delete
    24. There are 9 little Duggars, the grand-Duggars who carry Duggar name:
      Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith, Mason, Mariella (Josh's kids); Garrett, Addison (Joe's kids); Bella (Josiah's daughter).
      So, there are 4 little grandsons Duggars and 5 granddaughters who have Duggar as a last name.

      Then there are little grandsons who are Seewalds - Spurgeon and Henry (Jessa's sons), little Dillards - Israel and Samuel (Jill's sons), and little Forsyth - Gideon (Joy's son). Also granddaughters who don't have Duggar as their last name are Ivy Seewald and Felicity Vuolo.

  13. Dear John and Abbie, I'm glad all is going well with your pregnancy. I can't wait to watch the gender reveal and birth next season. Even though we already know it's a girl I love watching the reveals and births. You both look very happy in your photo. Natasha B.

  18. It's almost strange that nobody else is expecting, last year they were having babies one after the other. And in 2018 and 2017 as well. In 2017 they had Henry, Sam and Mason. In 2018 - Gideon, Garret and Felicity. This year they had Ivy, Addison, Bella, and Maryella. I hope maybe Jinger, Joy and Jill will have babies in 2020. I also think Jessa might have a baby close to Ivy.

    1. Duggars are overdue on new weddings too! There was no Duggar wedding this year! Maybe some of the boys get engaged at Christmas and have a Summer wedding?

      Delete
    2. Jim Bob said something was in the works on the show. That show was probably filmed in the summer so if the relationship works out then there will probably be a courting announcement next year. Let's hope it works out for whomever it is.

      Delete
    3. If something was brewing in the Summer, they would probably announce it then and had a Fall wedding. Duggar usually are quick in this area. In Addison's birth episode they showed Lauren Caldwell standing very close to James, but by some reason Jason also was at a hospital. It was said that Joe's brothers hang out at his house a lot, and Lauren hangs out there with Kendra a lot, but still it seems like too close relationship. Maybe they were waiting for Kendra to be over with the pregnancy, so no attention was distracted from her? But then, James is only 18 and Jason is 19.

      Delete
    4. 10:57- Hmmm... how can they be “ overdue” for anything when everything is supposed to happen in God’s timing?

      Delete
    5. Jill would be next I guess but maybe she's stopping at 2

      Delete
    6. No, only a couple of them had quick "friendship stages". There is a friendship stage they don't show on camera and those have varied in length. Jinger, Jessa, had a long friendship stages. Even the ones that were shorter seemed to be a few months (except) John David. Unless you know the family you don't know how long this early stage is but it's clear that they are not all the same and probably depend on their age and how similar their families and beliefs are.

  19. It's whole 4 weeks to wait. I hope Abbie is feeling better now. And hope she has an easy delivery.

  20. What if the baby comes on Christmas? Or New Years! That would be cool.

    1. Why would you wish for a premature birth?

    2. John-David and Jana's birthday is January 12th, the baby is due January 14th -- I think it was meant to be like this, for the baby to be born around John-David's birthday!

      Delete
  21. Who is next? I wonder what Jessa would do if she found out she is expecting? They would have to build a house extension or something, that house is 2-bedroom only.

    1. I think Joy will have another baby soon. It's been 6 months since they lost Annabel, they just moved into their new house, probably time to give Gideon a sibling. Jinger also was not showing her stomach in her pictures, maybe she is pregnant?

  25. I hope John will get a bigger house now. When Jana was visiting, they showed them living in a trailer.

    1. John and Abbie live in a trailer??? I thought they had a house.

      Delete
    2. Well now 9:13 and 10:34. How pretentious you both are. Trailers are homes. I have a lovely friend whom she, and her husband, have raised their 4 homeschooled, church-going, productive children in. I assure you it’s very much a home!

      Delete
    3. Anon @10:34 AM - it's not an RV like Joy&Austin lived in. But it is a trailer type, like a mobile home type, one level, no foundation. At least what was shown on TV when Jana visited Abbie.

      Delete
    4. Anon 9:13....
      for your information, a "trailer" is considered to be a single wide.....this is OBVIOUSLY a double wide, which is famously known as a "Manufactured home". These NEWLY weds are living in their first home and you have the audacity to judge them? Did you know that in Malibu there is a 'trailer park' where celebrities have put hundreds of thousands of dollars into decorating their own trailer?

      12:26 is right....PRE....TENT....IOUS....

      Delete
    5. 7:25 PM: you are mixing a working movie trailer with a trailer home. Not sure why your response was so defensive, but for your information living in a trailer is considered to be not wealthy, and while John David is not Rockefeller, he still has owned his towing business for years and also has a paid job as a constable. He also at some point worked for a bank, cleaning their property, for which they gave him a house. So even though he got married recently, he has resources. Also, for your information, not all newly weds start lives in trailers; a lot of people in America have expensive condos and houses at the start.

      Delete
    6. 7:25, the trailer shown on tv was a small older single wide. It has been nicely fixed up inside and most likely has only one bedroom.

      Delete
    7. 7:25, watch it again - the trailer was old, the siding was old and all dented. It was wide only to put a couch and have some entry area where Jana was standing, so obviously was SINGLE. You could see 2 doors inside, probably a bathroom and a bedroom. And probably there was a kitchen in the opposite end. And you could see other small trailers around in close proximity.

  26. I hope the baby will have Abbie's curls!

  27. So if Grand-Duggar #17 is coming in January of 2020, there is a chance that a Grand-Duggar #20 might also come in 2020!! 20 for 2020 :).

    1. 3 pregnancies and births in 2020 - easy: Joy, Jinger, Jessa. Don't think Jill will. She would probably let Derick finish his studies, another 1.5 years. If someone announces courtship like now, they will have a Spring wedding, May-June, but obviously no baby in 2020.

      Delete
  28. Amazing that John-David is younger than Josh by just less than 2 years, but John now has 6 kids with the oldest being 10 years old, and John-David is just starting. He must be feeling very, very excited after all these years of waiting! Like, 16 nephews and nieces while he is second oldest child!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. John-David is at a very good age to start a family. There's no reason for him to feel like he's somehow behind his siblings in any way or compare them. There's something to be said for being older and more mature.

      Delete
    2. 4:36 PM Of course, in general, many men have first kids around 30 or even 35, when they graduated college, got career running, paid out college debts... However, JD said himself that it's almost weird how he had all those nephews and nieces and now he is going to be a dad himself! I think it was not like negative, but more like how it's so new to him. And of course, when 7 of his siblings (and 6 are younger siblings) all tied the knot and had baby after baby, JD probably felt pressured - and kudos to him that he waited until he really fell in love. I've never seen JD so purely happy, his eyes are just different now, so happy he looks.
