SPRINGDALE, Ark., Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Jessa Duggar opened up about her first pregnancy on the Duggar Family Blog over the weekend.

The 22-year-old former reality star is now 34 weeks pregnant, and discussed the best and worst parts of expecting with the fan website. Duggar and husband Ben Seewald revealed she's pregnant in April.

"One of the most amazing parts of pregnancy has been feeling those tiny (and sometimes) powerful little kicks!" she shared. "It seems amazing how we can find ourselves so in love with someone who we've yet to meet face-to-face."

"Of course there are some aspects of pregnancy that can be difficult, such as morning sickness (which I was blessed to only have to deal with for about 4 weeks), and heartburn, and the shortness of breath that occurs when baby is cramped up in there and pressing on your lungs," she added. "Even when things in pregnancy seem difficult, I can't help but think of others who are dealing with so much more."

Duggar and Seewald expect their baby to be born Nov. 1, on their first wedding anniversary. The former reality star's older sister, Jill Duggar, recently became a certified midwife after returning home with husband Derick Dillard and 5-month-old son Israel from a mission trip to El Salvador.
