Joy and Austin head to 36-week appointment, share update
On Saturday, July 25, Joy and Austin shared a new video on their family’s YouTube channel. In the video, Joy and Austin talk about going to her 36-week appointment.
The couple first drops off Gideon at Jim Bob and Michelle’s home, because Joy’s younger sister Johannah is babysitting Gideon. At the end of the video, Joy asks Gideon if he had fun with his aunts. He sweetly answers, “Yeah.”
After the appointment, Joy and Austin fill viewers in on the baby girl. In the video, Joy explains that the baby is head down. She also says that the baby is a normal size, so she’s not too big. She says that they will go in at 37 weeks for another checkup.
In the new video, Joy says that they “haven’t even thought of names,” calling it “crazy.” Fortunately, they probably still have a couple of weeks until the baby’s arrival.
As TV Shows Ace reports, Joy is opting for a hospital birth. While some of her family members stick to home births, she is not this time around. In a recent video, the Duggar daughter is packing her hospital bags and getting ready for the baby’s arrival. She excitedly shows off the cute clothes and essentials she’s bringing along.
So, when do you think Joy and Austin’s baby girl will arrive? Share your thoughts below.
