"Counting On" star Jinger Duggar is happily awaiting for the arrival of her first child with husband, Jeremy Vuolo. However, her pregnancy journey has not all been smooth-sailing.
The soon-to-be mom told Us Weekly that similar to many women, she found herself feeling more exhausted than normal. "I do think probably what surprised me most is just being so tired all the time," she said. "I was never a napper, like having to take a nap, and now it's like, 'Ooh! I think I want to nap every day!'"
Thankfully, Jinger's family has been very supportive of her pregnancy and has encouraged her to listen to her body's needs. "They've said 'Just take a nap, don't feel bad if you need to lay down in the middle of the day,'" she said. "Especially when I was in all the morning sickness, I talked to them a lot about what they did, how they got through their morning sickness and I think that was some of the best advice - just resting, taking it easy."
It also helped Jinger to have a supportive husband in Vuolo. Whenever Jinger has been craving for something, the expectant father has not hesitated to help out.
"He got me take out food a lot because I did not want to step foot in the kitchen. It made me nauseous, so he did that for that season and that was very, very good," shared Jinger. "I'm feeling really good at this point! I'm passed any and all morning sickness. It's kind of - as someone labeled it - the honeymoon phase of the pregnancy because you're not super big, but you're enjoying the pregnancy."
However, Jinger did reveal one fear she had about going into labor. After her younger sister, Joy-Anna, had difficulty giving birth to her son Gideon, Jinger worried that she would have a "10-pounder" baby.
"That's probably the only thing that makes me nervous, is just thinking of the size of the baby and going through labor, but at this point, I'm trying not to think about that. I'm trying to just enjoy the pregnancy and I know that when that baby comes I'm going to be super excited to see it," she said.
