Jill Duggar Passes First Trimester & Releases First Pics Of Her Baby Bump
It’s a very exciting time for Jill & Derick!
Less than three months after they tied the knot in June 2014, the newlyweds are expecting their first child. While everyone was concerned that they announced their baby news so early on, Jill has a message for them — she’s finally surpassed the 12 week mark!
On Sept. 10, Derick posted a picture of his blushing bride holding up a small chalkboard that read “12 Weeks, 1 Day.”
“Had our 12 wk midwife appt yesterday! #babydilly #jillmdillard #derickdillard #blessedparents,” Derick captioned the photo, in which Jill is proudly showing off the tiny baby bump that is starting to form on her abdomen.
Congrats to Jill and Derick not only on their little bundle of joy, but also for entering their baby’s second trimester! Before we know it we’ll be celebrating the arrival of “Baby Dilly!”
Jill Was Not Afraid To Announce Her Pregnancy Early
While most parents wait to tell anyone, especially the world, that they are pregnant before passing the first trimester, Jill and Derick did not hesitate to share their news.
Although there are many superstitions among parents that claim announcing the news before the first trimester can “jinx” the baby, the Dillard’s proved they are definitely not the superstitious type — and it’s all thanks to their faith in God.
“Understanding that the majority of miscarriages happen within the first trimester,” Jill told Page Six in an interview shortly after announcing the news. “And believing that every life is precious no matter how young, we decided to share our joyful news as soon as we could.”
In the same interview, Jill also confirms that she and Derick had no plans on following any form of birth control once they started having sex after getting married. That explains how they got pregnant so quickly!
