No matter what Jessa Duggar does, she can’t seem to shake the pregnancy rumors. The Counting On star took to Instagram last week to shut down the speculation that she is expecting baby number three. But this week, she posted a pic and captioned it with the importance of sharing, and it confused some fans who mistook the post as a pregnancy announcement.
The mom of Spurgeon, 2, and Henry, 1, posted a pic last week with a classic baby bump pose and added a sassy comment that fans didn’t appreciate.
“Because I’ve been asked if I’m hiding a big of a bump… BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! Yes!” Duggar wrote, before adding, “But it’s currently a shrinking bump rather than a growing one. #postpartum #baggyshirts #thanksforasking.”

Reaction from fans on Reddit included calling the 25-year-old a “b***h because of her apparent attitude, and they couldn’t understand why Duggar seemed so annoyed by fans wanting to know if she is pregnant. She is from a family who became famous because of their ability and desire to push out children, you would think Duggar would realize this kind of scrutiny comes with the territory.
Despite fan reaction, she seemingly shut down the pregnancy rumors – for a few hours, at least. This week she posted a pic of her two boys playing in a little red car. She wrote in the caption that they have two seats on the swing and two seats in the wagon, but only one in the car, “Scoot over brother, I think we can make it work.” Duggar then wrote that it was time to practice taking turns.
For some reason, some fans took this as a pregnancy announcement, and they made it known in the comment section. It seems that some fans are so desperate for a new Duggar baby, they are looking for hints in every social media post.

Duggar has made it clear that she isn’t pregnant, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she doesn’t have a baby on the brain. According to In Touch Weekly, Duggar and her husband Ben Seewald have talked about the possibility of adoption since they got married in November 2014, and some believe the couple is currently in the process.
They once said in an interview that they have many friends who have walked down the adoption road, so they have seen firsthand the power of someone opening their home to a kid who needs a family.
Only time will tell if Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald plan on adding to their family through adoption. Fans will just have to wait and see.
New episodes of Counting On return to TLC later this summer.
