Jessa said she is planning for a home birth with a midwife, just as her sister did—though it didn’t go exactly as planned and ended up happening in a hospital.

The sisters can also bond about morning sickness because Jessa, who is in her second trimester, said she had been experiencing the symptom, just as Jill did during her pregnancy.

"I would sit in bed and eat crackers, hoping the nausea would pass,” she said, adding that her husband, Ben Seewald, has been “so sweet” and “waiting on me hand and foot.”

The soon-to-be mother also has her own mother, Michelle Duggar, to ask for advice—and with 19 kids, she’s certainly a pro! The mother-daughter duo have clearly been helping each other, as Jessa revealed her cravings.
