Jessa Duggar Seewald just revealed the news that she is pregnant with baby number two and fans are really excited. This, of course, brought up a discussion about Zika virus and if Jessa could have it. If you are pregnant, you can pass this on to your unborn baby. Jessa's sister Jill has been living in El Salvador, and Jessa went to visit her not too long ago.

Could Jessa have Zika virus?

Jessa was in El Salvador visiting her sister not long ago.


Women who have been in this area have been advised not to get pregnant and to use birth control. It is unknown if Jill kept from getting pregnant on purpose, but she is back in Arkansas at the moment and didn't get pregnant while on the mission trip. 

Jessa is due with baby number two around February, which means she got pregnant after she took the trip, but only by a few months. Jessa would have had to bring the disease home with her for this to be an issue.


You can get it from insect bites. More than likely Jessa and Ben's new baby is just fine, but of course, the Duggars will probably never talk about it all.

Should Jill Dillard be the next one pregnant?

If Jill is pregnant already, then she isn't sharing the news. Jill and Derick are back in Arkansas again. It would be smart for these two to wait to get pregnant until they were back here, but it is unknown how long they are going to be in Arkansas.

Jill and Derick have made it very clear that they have plans to go back to mission work again. 

Jill Dillard could have brought the Zika virus back with her as well, but if they wait a bit to have a baby, then they should be fine. Honestly, though, Jinger Duggar is now engaged and could end up being the next one to have a baby. The Duggar girls usually get pregnant pretty soon after getting married.
