At 20 weeks pregnant, Jessa Duggar and hubby Ben Seewald decided to share a video that will knock your socks off: a sonogram of their baby in action!


And clearly this kid is very active, based on all his (or her) antics -- from swallowing to moving his arms and legs to even sucking his thumb. That's quite a show! Check it out below:

#BabySeewald is growing fast! Already practicing swallowing, sucking a thumb, and actively moving arms and legs! � So excited at the feeling of these first baby kicks! � #UltrasoundVideo #20Weeks --with @ben_seewald "For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you." - Psalm 139:13-18

It's always exciting when a sonogram shows baby doing stuff, rather than just kicking back and sleeping (which is what mine did. Boooring!).

It also must be nice to focus on some good news amid the Josh Duggar scandal. Because let's face it, no matter how bad things can get, life does go on, and there's nothing like a baby to remind us of this fact. 

Congratulations to the couple on their very healthy and active baby-to-be -- if this sonogram is any crystal ball into this baby's future energy levels, they're going to have their hands full once he's born!

What did your baby do during your sonograms?
