Counting On fans likely might remember that John and Abbie tied the knot back in November 2018. Unlike many of Michelle and Jim Bob's other married children, however, they didn't start having babies right away. It wasn't until August 2019 that John and Abbie made their first pregnancy announcement.

Abbie suffered from a severe form of pregnancy-related nauseas called hyperemesis gravidarum when she was pregnant with Grace. She was even forced to make a number of trips to the emergency room because she was so dehydrated, according to Us Weekly. A daughter they named Grace Annette Duggar (who will soon become a big sister!) was born on Jan. 7, 2020.

Rumors that Abbie might be pregnant again had been circulating on and off since her first child was born. However, the speculation ramped up in February 2022 when eagle-eyed Reddit users noticed Abbie had a Pinterest board titled "Pink or blue." She had also recently "liked" several baby shower theme ideas. As it turns out, these pregnancy "clues" turned out to be accurate.

When was Abbie Duggar's due date?

It's unclear when Abbie's exact due date was supposed to be. Judging by the "late summer" clue, the baby could have been set to arrive sometime between the end of August and mid-September 2022.
