  2. Exciting times!! So is the big announcement going to be made by Jill and Derick, or by the Duggar family in general? I'm just trying to figure out if this is baby news or some other kind of news?

  8. My guess for the big announcement is Derick and Jill will announce whether they are having a boy or a girl! But now cool would it be if we learned that two baby Dillard's were due in March!!!

  9. Maybe the really big announcement on Oct 21 is that Jill and Derick are expecting twins. She looks bigger than I'd have expected a first time mama to look at 15weeks.

  10. She looks like she's really not feeling too great...

    ReplyDelete
  11. She looks tired.... Good luck ! Please make sure we can watch your show online ..... Thanks so much.

  13. I'm guessing the 21st it's the gender reveal or twins

    ReplyDelete
  14. Big announcement?? Perhaps they're having twins???!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. How sweet! I am so excited for them!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Why does Jill always interrupt and talk over Derick when he is speaking?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Happy for both of you. Can't wait for the big announcement!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Maybe Derick and Jill are expecting twins??
    I was not as big as that when I was 15 weeks pregnant with my first baby!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Guess the really big announcement is the gender.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I wonder what the big announcement will be on October 21st. Gender reveal? Or announcement that they are having multiples? Or something else?

    ReplyDelete
  21. She sounds older, grown up. She looks tired. Hang in there sweetie!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I say triplets.

  23. The bump looks like twins!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Jill does look tired but happy, and also big for 15 weeks.. maybe its twins?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Jill is from a house with 18 siblings, and all the others and Derick is from a house with one sibling. The former habits formed from those family dynamics certainly show here.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Awwww... Hope its twins!!! God Bless

    ReplyDelete
  27. A spin-off... their own show! YEAH! Thank you Duggars/Dillards for your God Honoring examples & an encouragement.

  28. their own show! Yeah

    ReplyDelete
  29. No, from Jill's own mouth the gender is not important, they are happy either way. BIG news would be multiple Baby Dillies. Who knows, maybe three....woooo hooo!

    From the size of her belly, I'm thinking she's showing way more than other women at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think twins also, she's huge for 15 weeks and they cannot say they will DEFINITELY find out the gender then, babies sometimes hide their bits on those scans!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I showed almost immediately with my son and was very visibly pregnant well before 15 weeks and we were only having one baby. She may just show early. A tummy is not a guarantee for multiples.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm sooo grateful for your family. Michelle is a guiding light and jim bob is a phenomenal loving husband with just the right amount of humor. Patience is so hard to learn to stay diligent with the will of god, but Michelle you make it beautiful. I just am in love with your family..

    ReplyDelete
  33. I know what the reveal is, and it's... drum-roll please---

    PREGNANCY IS HARD. You want to eat non-stop, but it's not like what you usually want and it changes your brain. I hope for the best for them because I have definitely been there. The emotions, my goodness.. I was like an unbridled lamb amongst wolves. I laughed, I cried, at the drop of a hat, all at the same time.

    Good luck Mr. and Mrs. Dillard, and remember-- it will all work out according to the plan.

  34. @AnonymousI think it's that she's having twins, because of the way she worded it. "And we'll have a really big announcement on October 21st", not "We'll be announcing the gender on October 21st." I could be wrong though, it may just be wishful thinking on my part. :)

  35. she looks like she is having twins

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think the Dillard's should name the baby, Skylar, I know Skylar, well you guys met on Skype, Jill had to fly 8 thousand miles to meet Derick, and you can use that name for both sexes! Skylar Dillard sound wonderful to me. Well take care, my Mother had terrible morning sickness, she drank Lavender Tea, she had buttery toast, but try the tea, just make sure you don't sweeten it, and it will help!! My Mother sipped it while she was giving birth, and it really helped.

  37. lily & ellie,
    do you know if this announcement will be made within the 19k&c show or a video like the one above where we can all hear it?
    anon. 10/8 @ 3:23 am,
    my daughter was going to have a gender reveal party but when they went for her ultrasound/sonogram at 19 weeks, they were unable to determine gender for certain. (pretty sure shes having a girl though) and when my first son was born at 25 weeks, they couldnt tell for sure, even hours before he was born! that was 25 years ago for me but only 2 weeks ago for my daughter. sometimes they move around too much (like my son!) another oddity was with my daughter, we had no idea we were carrying twins because they were one behind the other and only found out when we lost her at 19 weeks gestation! sometimes it isnt so easy to tell.

    ReplyDelete
  38. What if it triplets? But i think it's the gender, or twins because she looks kinda big for only 15 weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hmmm, what if they are planning to do a gender reveal and don't know by then? Although at 15 weeks it IS possible to see the gender already. Twins would be fun! I always wanted twins.

    ReplyDelete
  40. @Lyndsey Petersonyeah, seems exhausted and congested. I feel bad that she has to put herself out there so much...must add to the stress.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm so happy she is over her morning sickness!! I hope she does well the whole way through. I wonder if it will be twins!!?? It does run in the family... I think. The Duggar Family has 2 sets of twins, but it's probably just the gender of the baby. I think Derick's face, as well as Jill's has filled out nicely. Derick was pretty skinny. I appreciate how he always looks put-tegether, and in nice clothes when he is on video, and such. Really happy for the sweet couple! :) ❤️

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you for the update. I think if Jill & Derick go with a letter theme, "D" would be a great letter. I'm thinking if it's a boy, David (a biblical name) Richard (after Derick's late father) would be nice. If it's a girl, Danielle (Jill's closest buddy's, Jenni's, middle name) Catherine (after Derick's mother) would be a great name. This is just my opinion; it's obviously their baby & their decision as to what they decide to name their precious little blessing (or blessings!). I wish them all the best and all of The Lord's blessings. Your sister in Christ, Kristin.

  43. I think it will be a little girl....not sure though. I think they will be pleased whatever the gender is, boy, girl or twins!!! Every baby is a blessing from the Lord.

    ReplyDelete
  44. My guess is that she will have a girl!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I hope they announce soon they are moving into their own place that they own.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am going to speculate twins too and here is why. At 15 weeks they shouldn't confidently have the gender yet and at 17 weeks there is no guarantee of successful gender reveal- usually docs like to wait 18-20 weeks. Sure they can technically find out if baby cooperates but what if he/she doesn't? I don't think they would plan to reveal something they don't already know. If she's carrying twins now, they definitely know. :)

  47. She's got the "motherly glow."

    ReplyDelete
  48. Wow, she looks so great! I'm looking forward to October 21rst!:)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Their very own SHOW! That's what the BIG REVEAL will be! YEAH!
    They are a wonderful blessing of faith and encouragement- Enjoy watching them-

  52. Re: Anon #27, How so?

  53. Everyone says that Jill and Derick are better for one another than Jessa and Ben. Jessa says she has things to work on and people chide her for that. Jill has to work on not interrupting her husband. I know that no one is perfect and everyone has things to work on, but none of the girls are perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Jill seems to be taking a facetious view of Derick saying we are pregnant. I think Derick is being as true in his words as he knows how to be even if it is not apparently so on the surface view. Derick is pregnant too because he is the biological father and is 100% willing to be the baby's father in every other way. Derick goes out and works to support Jill while she is pregnant and will continue to do so into the future, willingly. This could go on and on, suffice it to say that at the risk of seeming kind of humorous Derick is using the term that is most true in a lot of ways. Also Jill should jump on that because if that is Dericks mind set it would be comforting to know he was so intimately involved in the pregnancy process as she progresses, then she would not worry like so many women do that the process is making 'her' different to her man than she used to be - because he is right there with her 'going through every change willingly with her'. Jill is so fortunate to have such a wonderful husband, I hope she realizes this and appreciates him.

  55. i predict a spin-off.

    ReplyDelete
  56. So happy for Jill and Derick! So many posters on here are saying "Hope it's twins/triplets" That's because they don't have to take care of them. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  57. It wouldn't surprise me if they will say that they expect twins. She is showing good for 15weeks.

  58. I don't think she's having twins or else everyone is having twins in 2015 : monaco royal family, british royal family... and Jill&Derick

    I bet it's 'just' the babygender or maybe their own spin-off (that would be great, they're my favorite)

    Sorry if my english isn't very good, I'm french :-)

    ReplyDelete
  59. She will be halfway thru her pregnancy soon & will find out the gender of baby.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Derick is a good man to become such a dedicated part of his family as he has become. His use of 'we' is very responsible and shows he compassionately shares in everything. Derick's choice of words tell us he is waiting on their child in as close a union with Jill as he possibly can. Jill in a premium position because she has someone who willingly shares in everything she is going through. Hopefully Jill recognizes, sympathizes and shares with all of Derick's changes, challenges and stressors in 'their' pregnancy too; because becoming a Dad must have lots of them. A great mutually supportive family bearing one another's burdens, building one another up.

  61. Bet it twins & a spinoff show for the married/courting Duggars.

  62. Just another six months (during the long winter) to go. Their updates will be something to keep our minds off the snow. Best wishes to Derick, Jill and baby (ies??) 'Dilly'!

    Hi Anonymous 68,

    Most of the newest episodes are uploaded to YouTube, but YouTube/TLC have started removing them soon after they are uploaded.

  67. Twins! Her mom had 2 sets of twins. She would have inherited the ability to have them from her.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I hope that they are having twins, getting their own spin-off and revealing the gender(s)of Baby Dilly...

    ReplyDelete
  69. I was just thinking they were gonna reveal the gender in 5 days. but after watching this video, she looks REALLY PREGNANT for only being 15 weeks. i think shes having more than one baby. Anna didnt look anywhere near that big in the face because she was only pregnant with one. but i could be wrong. still very excited to hear the big news!!!

    I think she's having twins too. Her bust has doubled (at least!) and she's gaining quickly in her face & arms. Not to mention, showing this early. It can't be just one baby.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I can't wait to find out if its a boy or girl. Our if she is have Twins or Triplets. 4 more day tell 19 Kids in counting.

    I wonder if they will announce it on Good Morning America.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I think it might be twins

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think that the big annoucement is that their baby will have another cousin next year - could Anna be pregnant??

    ReplyDelete
  74. Since she said she's 15 weeks along, it wouldn't be a gender reveal snce that's done about 20 weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  75. going have twin girls

    ReplyDelete
  76. @Anonymous The see of the baby canbe found out pior to 15 weeks that's to modern medicine you can take a blood test which in some ares is called infoseq or harmony they just draw mothers blood and can find out gender of baby and is more accurate than ultrasound. I found out gender at 12 weeks and verified again via ultrasound at 17 weeks

    ReplyDelete
  77. Its a boy!!!!!!
