Jill Duggar Dillard, 25, and her younger sister, Jessa Duggar Seewald, 23, may find themselves pregnant at the same time once again. Jessa already announced that she’s expecting her second child, and Jill just dropped a huge hint that she’s also pregnant with baby number two. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will undoubtedly be excited about the prospect of welcoming another “counting on” to their ever-expanding clan, but the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Whether Jim Bob likes it or not, his collection of kids living at home is going to decrease by one when Jinger Duggar marries Texas pastor Jeremy Vuolo.
Jill Duggar’s infant-obsessed Instagram followers are on nonstop pregnancy watch. As Hollywood Gossip reports, photos that show Jill’s belly are usually what get them buzzing, but one of her most recent pictures has sparked speculation that she’s pregnant for a different reason. Take a look at what Jill is snacking on in the photo below.
Jill writes that the green beans tossed in salt and vinegar that she’s munching on are a study snack, but some of her Instagram followers have pointed out that the unusual treat was one of Jill’s favorite things to eat when she was pregnant with her now-16-month-old son, Israel.
“You ate that when you were pregnant with Israel! Is this a clue?!!?” one fan wrote.
“Are you pregnant again? That one of the things you ate last time you were pregnant,” another commented.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Jill Duggar was 14 weeks pregnant with Israel when her pregnancy craving for salty green beans kicked in. Jill revealed that some of her other favorite pregnancy snacks were cold spinach with vinegar and salt, pickled jalapenos, and other similar salty and sour treats.
During a September 2014 interview with ABC News, Jill said that she was eating “dill pickles, lemon with salt or lemon juice with water or salt” to settle her stomach, and she revealed that protein-rich nuts were one of her favorite non-sour treats.
“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 said of her pregnancy cravings.
As the Hollywood Gossip reports, Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar previously revealed that they want to be pregnant at the same time. The sisters shared their baby aspirations during the Season 1 finale of Counting On that aired earlier this summer, and some viewers began speculating that they made this pregnancy pact in hopes that double the Duggar baby bumps would help save Counting On from cancelled. Last month, People reported that Jessa and her husband, Ben Seewald, are expecting their second child. Jessa’s due date is sometime in February.

As it turns out, the Duggars didn’t need dual pregnancies to create a plotline for Season 2 of Counting On; Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo’s courtship and engagement has been the main focus of the TLC series’ second season. However, the possibility of getting to film a few more dramatic Duggar baby births may tempt TLC to offer the family at least one more season of Counting On.
In the meantime, fans of the Duggar family can look forward to watching Jinger’s fiancé face off against her father during next week’s episode of Counting On. As the International Business Times reports, a sneak peek that recently aired on TLC shows Jinger and her family meeting Jeremy’s family for the first time. During dinner, Jim Bob Duggar informs Jinger and Jeremy that he does not want them to live in Laredo, Texas, where Jeremy works as a preacher. Jeremy Vuolo tells the TLC cameras that he feels like Jinger’s father put him in an awkward position by trying to plan his future for him in front of his own family.

Spoiler alert: Jinger and Jeremy already told Us Weekly that they are going to live in Laredo after they get married, so Jim Bob doesn’t get his way.
Jeremy and Jinger have also revealed that they plan on having as many children as “the Lord provides” after they get hitched, which likely means that they won’t be using birth control. So who knows? Maybe Jinger, Jessa, and Jill Duggar will all be pregnant at the same time during Season 3 of Counting On.
