[BRIGHTCOVE "4076868378001" "" "" "auto"] They've come a long way, baby.

In an exclusive sneak peek of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting, airing Tuesday at 9:30 p.m., Jill and Derick Dillard go to their very first midwife appointment – and hear their baby boy's heartbeat for the first time.

Last week's season premiere ranked as the No. 1 cable program with women on Tuesday night, according to a press release from TLC.

This week will feature two episodes back-to-back: First, fans will get to watch Jill's younger sister Jessa Duggar, 22, go shopping for wedding dresses; then Jill and Derick give an on-the-scene look at a meeting with their midwifery team.

[BRIGHTCOVE "4076797802001" "" "" "auto"] Leading up to the day she became Jessa Duggar Seewald, the fifth child of 19 born to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar has some planning to do.

As her sisters, her mother and her mother-in-law Guinn Seewald tearfully watch, Jessa, 22, models an array of wedding dresses at Tesori Bridal in Fayetteville, Arkansas. She ultimately chooses a light blush Allure dress with a fully beaded bodice of Swarovski crystals and pearls. Her choice brings up some questions from her littlest siblings, who debate what color a wedding dress should be.

The episode – airing Tuesday at 9 p.m. on TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting – is part of the show's record-breaking ninth season. The one-hour season premiere was the No. 1 ranked cable program in prime time with women and the series's highest-rated season premiere ever.
