Pregnant Jessa Duggar shares selfie of her growing baby bump at 22 weeks as it's revealed brother Josh may face molestation civil suit

Jessa Duggar shared another selfie on her Instagram account Wednesday as she continues to mark the days until the arrival of her first child.

The 22-year-old, who married Ben Seewald last November, posed in front of a mirror to take the picture, pushing out her growing belly to emphasize her baby bump.

She marked the photo with '22 weeks 3 days' and alongside she wrote: 'At #22Weeks, #BabySeewald now weighs just over a pound!'

Jessa announced she was expecting in April, five months after tying the know with Ben, also 22.

It's thought the couple now know the sex of their baby but have decided no to go public with that information yet.

On June 17, three days after posting a photo of her latest scan on Instagram, Jessa wrote on her blog: 'Baby Seewald is growing steadily and Mommy has been feeling some little, yet strong, kicks!'

'We recently had an ultrasound, but aren't revealing our firstborn's gender yet. Can't wait to welcome this blessing from God into the world!'

First look: Jessa shared this ultrasound picture of her baby three weeks ago, writing alongside: 'BabySeewald makes a first appearance today!!! #19weeks3days Yay! Almost halfway!'

Jessa's pregnancy has, of course, been overshadowed by the revelations about her older brother Josh Duggar molesting young girls when he was a teen.

In May Josh acknowledged that he had indecently touched five young girls, two of whom were his sisters Jill and Jessa.

On Wednesday, it was claimed that another of his victims, not a member of the Duggar family, plans to file a civil suit against him.

InTouch reported that the individual is not happy with the way the family presented the scandal to the media after it was revealed what Josh had done'

'I have heard that the [non-family] victim is preparing to sue,' a law enforcement insider told the magazine.

'This whole sordid affair with Josh rattled a lot of people, including the victim, who had to relive this nightmare all over again all while watching Josh's parents go on TV and whitewash what happened.'

Scandal: Jessa's older brother Josh, 27, seen here with his wife Anna, has admitted he fondled underage girls when he was a teen. Two of the five victims were his sisters Jill and Jessa

Defense: Jill, 24, and Jessa both appeared on Fox News in June and Jessa said it was wrong to call Josh 'a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist'

The depositions would likely be a nightmare for the family, and further tarnish their already damaged public image.

Back in June, Jessa and her sister Jill, 24, appeared on Fox News to defend their brother.

'I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying,' Jessa said on The Kelly File.

'Josh was a boy, a young boy in puberty and a little too curious about girls.'

This past weekend, Derick Dillard, who's married to Jill, announced that he, his wife and their baby son Israel David will be leaving the U.S. this month for a long-term mission abroad.

Derick, 26, did not reveal where the 19 Kids and Counting couple was headed but said it was something that he and Jill had been discussing for several months.

Leaving: Jill and husband Derick Dillard, 26, didn't include Josh Duggar in their wedding and this past weekend the couple announced they are leaving the U.S. for a long term religious mission overseas
