  4. I think she'll have a little girl, I am usually wrong on gender guessing though ;-) I have 2 gorgeous girls called Grace & Faith, some name suggestions for the Dillards :-) God Bless you & your baby x

    Blessings, Jill! The rest of the world hasn't even seen your wedding on TV yet! May God bless and continue to move you to follow Him.

  8. My niece lives about 1500 miles from me and shared pictures of her growing tummy while we waited for the arrival of her first child, a boy. I'm excited to follow Jill's journey to motherhood the same way. Looking forward to future "growing" pictures. :-)

  13. Jill is my favorite Duggar.

  14. Praise God for this new life in this most wonderful of families!

  15. I still say they should wait until delivery day to find out what the gender is. Why is it so important to know beforehand? This is one of life's most delightful surprises & they are spoiling it for themselves. Oh well, it's their choice. I wish them well & pray they will have a healthy baby no matter what they choose.

  16. Congratulations..hope you have a wonderful pregnancy and a good birth

  17. That is great news. Wishing both of you a healthy baby. This is an exciting time for the Duggar family. It is exciting to see your family experience all these new changes it must be fun to be a Duggar these days.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great that you got through this first 13 weeks. But what is nicer then to wait till the baby is born to see the gender. It is so surprising. Even one time the doctor said what is was, it was wrong.

  19. Lily and Ellie,

    How is Jill counting her days of being pregnant? If you count from the date she got married (which is June 21st, right?) then today she is only 12 weeks and 5 days pregnant......not 13 weeks and 1 day.....

    Does anyone else wonder the same thing?

    ReplyDelete

    1. That's because pregnancy is counted from the first day of a woman's last menstrual cycle, not date of conception. Knowing her due date, her date of conception was July 1st

  20. Yay! Jill , congrats to u and derrick.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am pleased to see that Jill is kind enough to let us fans keep close tabs on her pregnancy progress.

    On a side note, Jana has to be courting. The Duggar family has not made an official announcement yet but the biggest give away is the heart necklace that she has been photographed wearing for the past few months. Jessa was pictured wearing a heart necklace shortly before the world learned about her courtship to Benjamin. Last winter Jill was pictured wearing a heart necklace and rumours started to swirl. The smallest Duggar children let it slip out that Jill was courting during a television interview during the Growing Up Duggar book tour. The Duggar family had kept Jill's courtship quiet for almost five months at that point in time. Now Jana has been wearing a heart necklace for a few months, so it could be officially announced that she is courting very soon. It has definitely been an exciting year for the family!!

  22. Hello Lily and Ellie and everyone else,

    Sorry about the last foment I made on here! I should've done my research first and also remembered that the medical system actually count it so that you're pregnant for 2 weeks (or so) that you actually aren't pregnant for.....So I guess Jill is counting the medical system way then. :-) So she has actually only been pregnant since the beginning of July (depending on her body and how long her monthly cycle is).

    I hope Jill continues to post pictures of her pregnancy!!!! It's very precious! =D. So happy for them!

  23. Hey Jill do u have morning sickness?

    ReplyDelete
  24. You an tell she's not having as much morning sickness! Glad she's feeling better!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I HOPE YOU TRULY ENJOY YOUR PREGNANCY AS MUCH AS I DID. THE REWARD IS SO GREAT AT THE END. CHILDREN ARE REALLY A BLESSING FROM GOD BECAUSE AS I THINK ABOUT SO MUCH THE OLDER YOU GET THE MORE YOU APPRECIATE YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS AND TO HAVE SOMEONE TO LAUGH WITH TO LOVE NOT JUST YOUR SPOUSE BUT THE BLESSING THAT GOD HAS BLESS YOU WITH IS SO WONDERFUL A GIFT OF CHILDREN!!!!!!!

  26. Jill cut her hair!! Maybe it was earlier and I missed it.

  27. Can some please upload this weeks episodes, because the ones on you tube don't work anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I was wondering if they used a certain website that tells what is developed on their little baby ( ex: 13 weeks the baby has fingerprints)? I would love to know!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love being able to keep track of how Jill's pregnancy is going! My sister is pregnant with her first child too, and just passed her first trimester this week!

  37. 13 weeks & 1 day ago is June 18th. Should it be 12 weeks?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Just a random question... Why does Jill include the extra '1 day' in her pregnancy photos?

  54. That's unbelievable how Jill has changed after meeting and marrying Derick! This relationship and marriage is seriously a gift from God. She is glowing, and I think it's not only because of pregnancy, but because she is with Derick, and they are match made in heaven!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I get a kick out of the nickname "Baby Dilly"....decorate the nursery with pictures of baby pickles that the younger Duggar kids can draw..That way it can go for a girl or a boy....LOLOL

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm happy for them but I sure wish they would have waited a while before having kids. I was optimistic that they would just enjoy being with each other WITHOUT CHAPERONES & actually being able to kiss before expanding their family.

    ReplyDelete
  57. It will be a revealed surprised whenever they find out. They are not planning to reduced based on the gender of the child. Most times they can tell during a regular ultrasound. It will be exciting no matter when they find out.

  60. Oh my goodness! Jill is so cute! She is going to make a fantastic mom. May God richly bless their family.
    P.s. can't wait to see their wedding episode:-)

    ReplyDelete
  61. She may or may not be showing fast. I remember with my first pregnancy, I couldn't wait to Start showing, so I would"push" my belly out a little more in pictures, sometimes without realizing it. Either way, she has the right to be excited about this gift from God. So excited for you Jill and Derick!

  62. Congrats to Jill and Derick !!! So adorable

    Hi Anonymous 29,

    There are a number of websites that provide the details of a baby's development. Just search "baby development by week," and you should find several right away.

    Blessings,
    Lily and Ellie

  66. I really wish people would stop saying she conceived before marriage. Go to justmommy and due date calculations. If her LMP was anywhere before June 21st, the day she married, you will see there is Noway she got pregnant before marriage. With her due date, I believe it would be July 1st or 2nd she conceived. If only more people understood how doctors calculate pregnancy.

    ReplyDelete
  67. God bless Jill and Derrick, I am glad they waited until marriage! Now they are going to have the most beautiful baby! I wished that I would have stayed pure until my wedding day now that I look back, trust me, stay pure and you will not regret it! I didn't and now I am having guilt issues, which I deserve. I had a daughter,out of wedlock, and I struggled to make ends meet, then I had another daughter out of wedlock, now I'm married to a widower, and I blessed to be with a godly man and his godly children and my daughters as one family. But you can imagine because of the choices I made, I still suffer, stay pure until your wedding

  68. wow exided for you

  69. Oh my goodness with jill's hair like that she looks like jinger

  70. About 80% of the comments are how to calculate Jill's conception, which doesn't matter, it's personal, we know that there's no way she could get pregnant before her wedding night, and then 20% of the comments are, CONGRATS, which honestly should be what they should be!

  71. @AdaExactly! She isn't really unusually big...people and their speculation! :) I mean even if it's twins, does it really show up this early??
