Former reality TV star Jinger Duggar is around 38 weeks into her pregnancy and does not seem to be aware of the do's and don't's of the pregnancy months. Her fans and followers called her out on the fact that she decided to dye her hair while pregnant. 

Very recently, the new mother-to-be took to her social media to share a picture of a double date that she was on. In the picture, viewers could see her husband Jeremy Vuolo, her brother John David, and John's girlfriend, Abbie Grace. Despite her pregnancy glow which was definitely visible, fans could not help but notice that the star's hair looked different and she was sporting what look to be highlights. 

Fans and followers totally freaked out about her new hairdo, which sparked off controversy regarding the do's and don'ts that come along with pregnancy. Some of them resorted to commenting and a major debate followed about whether a pregnant woman should or shouldn't dye her hair. Both sides of the argument were heated and fierce with people not holding back their opinions. 

One fan commented, "I’m a licensed cosmetologist and coloring is fine. We do recommend holding off [on] the bleach [until you’re] done with pregnancy, but it’s really to each his own!" While another fan took to social media to say, "[The Duggars] have midwives instead of doctors, so maybe they don’t know coloring your hair is not safe while pregnant." Another concerned fan added, "I was just wondering if she would be there since she is really close to her due date. Maybe not wanting to risk anything happening at the end of the pregnancy. Stay close to her doctor, in case something was to happen." 

According to the American Pregnancy Association, "most researches indicated that the chemicals found in both semi-permanent and permanent dyes are not highly toxic and are safe to use during pregnancy. In addition, only small amounts of hair dye may be absorbed by the skin, leaving little that would be able to reach the fetus."

The 'Counting On' star revealed that she has around six weeks of her pregnancy left and has been updating her fans and followers with her pregnancy news. She recently uploaded a picture, which showed off her baby bump and she captioned it, "Vuolo #34weeks". The picture shows a pregnant Jinger standing in front of a chalkboard which she has been using to document her pregnancy. 

At the time, the board revealed that she was around 34 weeks pregnant and her unborn baby had become the size of a cantaloupe. It is clearly a fruity affair as the last couple of baby bump pictures that she uploaded has some reference to one fruit or the other. For instance, 31st-week pregnancy update revealed that her baby was as big as a pineapple. She had previously compared the size of her baby with bell pepper and cauliflower.

After weeks and weeks of waiting, Jinger Duggar and her husband Jeremy Vuolo learned the sex of the baby which is going to be a baby girl. After the baby's gender reveal party, Jeremy and Jinger told People, "We are so happy to announce that we are having a little baby girl! We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this summer. We especially love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love."

Jinger was unable to contain her happiness and joy and was excited that so many of her friends and family showered their love and blessings on the parents-to-be. "The shower was an amazing time of celebrating our new arrival with loved ones. Our friends, Juan and Margarita, were so generous to organize and host the shower and we were overwhelmed by the kindness and thoughtful generosity of everyone". 

Jeremy and Jinger got married in November 2016 after Jeremy proposed to her in July 2016 after meeting her the year before. Unlike the other Duggar couples, Jeremy and Jinger broke tradition and did not get pregnant immediately after getting married. They decided to enjoy their life as newlyweds before deciding to take up the responsibility and chaos of having a baby. 

At the time of announcing their first pregnancy, the couple released a statement on their website which read, "The past fourteen months have been the best of our lives as we have had the wonderful privilege of beginning our journey through life together in marriage. We both looked forward to the joys of marriage, but neither one of us fully understood just how amazing the start of this journey would be. Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning!"

"Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: we are expecting our first child! We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy. Psalm 139:13-14 13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well," they continued. 

In a TLC video, Jeremy Vuolo shared, "I am praying that the baby will look like, act like, talk like, be like Jinger, and so I’ve asked everyone else to pray as well. I was a little terror as a child, so I’m hoping that the little one will be as much like Jinger as possible."
