Praying for a quick easy as possible delivery! Sending love and side hugs from Tulsa!
Do you think her date is off a little? I am getting concerned that Baby Dilly is not 10 days past due. I hope God will bring that little one out soon! All the best!
Jill, we are praying for an easy delivery with quick recovery and a strong, healthy baby boy. Can't wait to see this special little guy!
So excited for them! And I'm praying for a fast and healthy delivery!
Special days! MumOfSeven from Holland
Walk. Walk and walk some more. That will get labor moving along really fast. We will pray for a smooth easy delivery! Have a blessed Easter!!
Please tell Jill that she would most likely start in labor if she would drink 4 oz. of castor oil! My doctor recommended it and it worked for me over 50 years ago and it would probably work for her! Blessings...
Don't get me going....I think Jill should be in the community's health centre and avail herself and her baby input from doctors. I think she should deliver in a birthing room there. The baby could be induced and be fine because it is viable, what is this bake thing? Maybe the baby is so big that her body can't get a good labor up and running. I would not be so relaxed if I were her.
Time to take a page out of Mrs. Bates book and go for a brisk walk? Best of luck Jill and Derick.
At this point, Jill's chances of a home birth may be shot. She's going to need to either have midwife break her water or go tohosp and ge induced. Any midwife won't let her go more than to 42 wks. There's probably meconium in the amiotic water. I went to 41 wks w/ my last. I'm sure she's tried castor oil, but don't spicy food will help much at this point.
Are they keeping the name private till the baby arrives? Will they have a letter theme for the children
yep,i hope the mexi ,food helps.
I can't wait to see baby dily be born he is going to be adorable like his parents he is going to be a big boy and kind
i hope yhe mexi food ,start labor?
Sooner or later, he'll come! Praying for safe and smooth delivery!-Maya S.
God bless you both. Praying that sweet baby is in your loving arms soon.
Most doctors wouldn't let someone go almost two weeks past due date..
Funny how the entertainment news says that she in labor and you say she's not! Love when the media takes things wrong
Have been thinking about Jill almost daily. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job with this blog, for giving us the latest updates! No need to worry; I'm sure it's well-known that first babies often get so comfortable that they are not ready to come out yet for the announced due-date. I know that was the case with mine. I don't imagine the Duggars believe in inducing labor. But this little one will make his appearance when he and God are ready for him to! Much love to Jill and Derick, and to Baby Dilly. Have a blessed Good Friday everyone, and Happy Easter! Wouldn't it be something if Baby Dilly's birthday fell on Resurrection Sunday! :)
I hope the baby comes soon! if I had a piece of advice that would probablybe stay right with the Lord and he will take care of you!-Brandyn Marie SpinlerIf you could respond back to me that would be great!I am only 11 years old but I love your show!
you are such a great couple! God has a plan for baby Dilly!
Praying that the baby comes soon:)
Jill looks beautiful! She is glowing! So happy for you both :)
She looks Great!!! I'm so happy for them. Love this family. :-)
Wow jill is in labour I can't wait to see baby dilly.Love them amazing people we need more people like them. Hope and pray your deliver goes well.
Does Spicy food really help you go into labor?
Love u so hope u have very good delivery tday easter baby what a blessing
I bet Jill is miserable
Jill is radiant! My daughter was due on Valentine's Day and was born on March 2nd - 16 days after her due date!
Praying she doesn't end up with a C-section due to her baby being so big. I was never allowed to go past 40 weeks with all my children. God bless you Jill, Derick and baby.
Thanks so much for the update! We're all wondering!!
Thanks for the update! I appreciate you taking the time to tell us that nothing is going on. :) That is better than wondering if she's in labor or had him days ago and I missed it.
When in doubt eat!
Eggplant parmesian will bring on labor
Jill wrote somewhere that she had 2 possible due dates... if she's due April 5th (her second date) then she's still early
She could have a easter baby! 😀
I think it's time for jill to visit a hospital. I'd rather be safe than sorry.
She looks different in the picture. Just like someone I know
can some one of the family set the record right there rumors flying around that she is labor can someone in the family post some thing on fb on the page. .
Jill is so pretty!! Can't wait for Baby Dilly! =)
I do sincerely hope that all goes well for Jill and her son; however, being that they are such strict Christians, I absolutely believe that eating out at a Mexican restaurant is NOT appropriate for Good Friday; a Christian day of atonement..also I don't think eating spicy foods is "leaving it up to God" like they say they with everything....
OMG, how can eating Mexican not be appropriate,SERIOUSLY folks , LIGHTEN up :-)
For goodness sake. They can do as they see fit in their own lives.
thanks for the update - I have been wondering and checking your blog - good luck with the birth - I swear by the shower method!!! from Toronto Ontario - your neighbors to the north!
I think baby Dilly will be here this weekend! Can't wait to see him with the happy new parents.
Jill, you are so patient and sweet. Hope Baby Dilly decides to make his appearance soon. Jill and Derick will may wonderful parents. Thank you and your entire family for sharing your lives with us viewers! Love the show!
Wouldn't it be nice if Baby Dillard arrived on Easter Sunday?! Joan,Marion and Marilyn
I hope that Jill n Derrick will have a healthy baby. Jill will have a short labor.
Lili and Ellie how long will she wait before inducing labor? Or will she not induce and let God determine when it's ready?
Sweet <3... just finished watchin' Ben and Jessa's wedding. Y'all are such an amazing family. I cannot wait to see baby dilly. I am home schooled and one of seven kids so.. I love how they all work together loving Jesus. Love you guys you're awesome!!!!!!
Well, hearing that Jill is trying to induce labor naturally is at least good news to me. I know that as a midwife I'm sure she has good knowledge that her baby doesn't need to stay in there much longer, but I didn't know if she was trying any methods at all. I'm guessing over the next couple days if nothing happens, she'd be willing to go to the hospital to get induced if necessary, so that makes me feel better. :)
I CAN'T WAIT until your son is born!!!!!!! I am sure he will be just as cute as the two of you. May you have a blessed life worshiping God each and every day. I also Hope everyone has a great Good Friday!!
Do you know what the plans are for induction? I know most people are induced before being 14 days overdue. But is this the same...
Are they considering having labor induced?
Have the baby already
Praying for all of u! I can't wait to see the little guy!
My first baby was 10 days late. I hope Jill does not go too much longer because I think her baby boy is already a good size. She and Derick look so happy. Maybe she will have an Easter baby. Does a widwife let a pregnant woman stay pregnant for over 42 weeks? I am curious about if there is a certain point that is beyond what is good for baby and the momma.
good luck momma and daddy,baby dilly will his entrance when hes ready...you both will be wounderful parents,i love the show and watch it faitfuly every week...I just got a new nephew on april fools day as well...
My daughter got her labor going the last 4 times by bouncing on an exercise ball. Hope that helps. God Bless you and that baby. P.S. I'm available if you need anyone to rock him for an hour or two. Haha (Granny of 9)
Jill & Derrick you are sooo lovable to each other it's so precious, I cried on the day he proposed to you, that song OMG it was perfect. Cherish each other everyday & good luck & happiness when baby Dilly comes!!!
Good Luck Jill! I feel so sorry for you!
Due Date Wrong? Time to induce!
I bet baby Dilly will come next week some time he must not be ready to meet everybody
When that Apple gets ripe it will fall
She could go 2 weeks past her due date after that the doctor will consider induced her.
Just by looking at their faces, they are going to have one cute baby boy!
I don't care what anybody says, I don't think having a baby is an exact science. I don't think 10 days past due is all that big of a deal. Especially with a first baby. Good for Jill for waiting, she knows that baby will come when it's good and ready. She's also smart enough to know to monitor the baby and pay heed to any warning signals. My second baby was due March 23rd and he didn't make his appearance until April 26th and he was just fine. Let nature take its course for petes sake. Or is that not the way we do it in this technological age? We say trust in the Lord but do live by that saying? I have a feeling she'll have a perfectly healthy baby in God's time.
I totally agree!
She looks so different in this photo.
Well, it worked. She's in labor now.
Is this true or just hear say
I thought after 7 days they were supposed to induce it? Maybe they'll induce her soon cause teen days extra in the womb is a long time for a baby
Is Jill allowed to be induced if necessary? She must be so very uncomfortable at this point...
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very exciting time Jill & Derick. I have had the honor to share in the time leading up to the birth of my 6 beautiful Grandbabes. Soon to be 7. It is a very miraculous time. God Bless !!!
We're hoping to see Baby Dilly soon!!! Thought of any names yet? God bless you!
Is she finally in labor? Please keep us posted and show lots of pics.
My friend was a month late with each of her 5 kids. They are all healthy.
Go for a long walk everyday. That should help.
Unrelated but how are Josh and Jim Bob doing with their diet (Better food choices and portion control) and exercise? There were a few episodes focused on this issue.
I agree with the earlier comment about the full moon and the pressure of itShe will hopefully start labor today/tonight and have an Easter baby!!!!
Derick smile is just like Jill's now.
She sure has dropped more. Anyday. Thoughts and prayers ur way for a speedy delivery and healthy baby!
I hope he comes on Easter.....that would be so special!!!! 👩👶👨🐰🍮⭐️
go for a bump truck rideSharon from Rochester
I'm sure this will freak people out, but I was 3 1\2 weeks late with my baby and I still had her at home! She was 10 lbs 11oz. Every thing went good! And that was in 2010!
I am kinda surprised they went out for a meal on a fast day.
jill has dropped a lot. God bless all of you. I check the internet everyday when I'm having my morning coffee to see the latest news on your Lil one.
Good luck both of you We're sooo excited to see baby dilly!!! Hoping and praying for a safe delivery and a strong baby!!!
After the due date the placenta will start to break down so most doctors do not let the mother go much past. Hope everything works out well! God Bless!!
Jill, I love your attitude about your baby's due date. My first baby was born at 43 weeks (confirmed by doctor). I don't think they let you do that anymore. Hopefully, he'll be born on Easter Sunday like mine was! Happy delivery!
I am so excited about Jill's pregancy! I keeping going back to my computer room to check to see if their baby has been born! Checking every two hours. I just want everything to go well and for them to have a healthy baby!!
Have safe heathy baby boy please have baby Jill and Deriek for your fans
April 8I moved my prediction due date
Baby dilly going to be a big baby. come out baby dilly the would wants to meet you
Look at Derick's face. He looks wild
