Now that ’19 Kids & Counting’ has returned we are sure to learn more and more about Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s baby plans! For now, Jill has revealed the adorable name she has been calling her unborn baby.
Jill Duggar, 23, and Derick Dillard, 25, are expecting their first child less than three months after getting married. Now, the excited mom-to-be is spilling the beans on what she’s nicknamed her child — and it’s probably the cutest nickname you’ve ever heard!
Jill Duggar Nicknames Unborn Baby
The excitement over the expansion of the Duggar family is only just beginning as a new season of 19 Kids & Counting has only just kicked off on Sept. 2.
Slowly but surely, more and more details about Jill’s unborn baby are becoming available, and she’s so excited about her first child she just can’t stop talking about him/her just yet! In fact, she recently shared with Us Weekly what her baby’s first nickname is: Baby Dilly!
Now, while you think that might be from the baby’s last name, Dillard, it’s actually because of Jill’s sour tooth. During her pregnancy, she craves salty snacks such as dill pickles. Yum!
“I like cold things [too]. I don’t like a lot of hot meals right now but I do try to get protein every two hours,” Jill shared.
Aw, it sure sounds like Jill is taking her pregnancy step-by-step. Right now she is still in her first trimester, so it’s only the beginning for Jill’s food cravings. Hopefully we’ll get to see a lot more of her pregnancy joy on the new season of 19 Kids!
Jill Is Suffering From Major ‘Pregnancy Sickness’
Something else Jill has been very open about since announcing her first pregnancy is that she is dealing with big-time morning sickness. Or, as she likes to call it, pregnancy sickness, because it never ends.
“I’ve been having a lot of morning sickness,” she told the magazine in an interview. “They should call it ‘pregnancy sickness’ because it’s all day, but I’m feeling good today! I’m thanking God for this little life and the good signs. It’s well worth it.”
Even though Jill is suffering through some illness at the beginning of her pregnancy, she sure is a trooper. For Jill, it’s not so much about the trials and tribulations as it is bringing another life into the world as part of God’s plan — just like her mom, Michelle Duggar, did with her 19 children.
Congrats again to Jill and Derick on their exciting news!
