Okay, so I think Jessa's photo was UTTERLY tone deaf and put all the focus on HER and is yet more proof of how her parents raised them all to be about putting the attention on themselves even when they were preaching J-O-Y. Having said that, what Jessa WROTE - though I suspect it was at least partially ghost written - was actually quite lovely to me (and if I'm being kind I think she at least PARTIALLY meant the sentiment her ghost writer wrote) because yeah, if you want to have a baby and you know you have a baby in you and then you don't have a baby in you, that shit is HARD and it doesn't matter if you were 2 days late with the period or 4 months into your pregnancy. That's just a HARD thing and her acknowledging that (through her ghost writer - prove me wrong 😉 her vocabulary has improved tenfold in not ten years 😉 ) is not awful to me. Wanting to be a mom and then having evidence you will be a mom and then losing that? That's just AWFUL for those who experience it and I won't sit here and say that it isn't because Lauren had only 2 days or 2 weeks or 2 months to imagine what her life might be like because she learned she had embryonic cells growing inside of her and was EXCITED about that.
But posting that with an extra pouty lipped selfie of herself with her baby bump? That is some full on Duggar attention whore shit right there and I make no excuses for that. Jessa learned from her mama.
