It's been a busy summer for the Duggar family.
In addition to countless pregnancy announcements, the Counting On clan has been forced to grapple with the death of Mary Duggar, as well as the usual barrage of criticism and mini-scandals.
But perhaps the story that's piqued the most interest in the past few months is the disappearance of Jessa Duggar.
Now, when we say disappearance, we don't mean that her whereabouts are entirely unknown.
We're sure Jessa's friends and family have some idea where she is.
The public, however, is totally in the dark with regard to Jessa's locale.
Back in May, Jessa welcomed her third child following a complicated delivery.
In a video released by TLC, Jessa revealed that she had an "unexpected" home birth after planning to deliver in a birthing suite at an area hospital.
"I was not expecting to go early," the reality star said, revealing that her due date was still more than two weeks away.
Both mother and baby were said to be in good health following the stressful delivery.
But after that a curious thing happened -- Jessa disappeared.
To be fair, she only disappeared off of social media, but still -- two months without a peep? At a time when she would notmally be posting endless baby pics?
It's not surprising that rumors about Jessa suffering health issues havs been circulating on social media.
Thus far, there's been no official word from her family, but many have taken Jim Bob and Michelle's latest post as confirmation that Jessa will be laying low for the foreseeable future:
Yes, that's a photo of Jessa's husband, Ben Seewald, riding a carousel with his eldest son.
In the caption, the Duggars praised Ben's parenting skills, writing:
"Love these guys! Ben, you are such a wonderful dad to Spurgeon, Henry, and Ivy!"
But fans were quick to point out that Jim Bob and Michelle almost never post pics of their son-in-laws without their wives.
And many took the photo as cause for concern:
“What is wrong with Jessa?” one fan asked.
“Hope everything is ok with Jessa! She hasn’t posted in a while,” another commented.
The Duggars were quick to reply, writing, “She is doing great! Busy taking care of her little ones!”
It's a perfectly reasonable response -- but it's important to bear in mind that the Duggars don't have the greatest reputation when it comes to being truthful with the public.
