The Jill Duggar baby bump watch has been in full effect for months. There is always something new that happens which leads to speculation she is expanding her family with Derick Dillard. The couple is married and they currently have one child. While Israel has just turned one, there still has been no baby confirmation. Because Duggar is the daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle, she is expected by many to give birth to one child after another. That is not the case this time around, and it may not ever be that way for Jill Duggar.
Fans of 19 Kids and Counting and Jill and Jessa: Counting On have been waiting for Jill Duggar to fall pregnant for months. The couple decided to go off and do mission work, leaving their Arkansas home and family. According to Enstarz, Jill Duggar looked pregnant in a recent photo posted on social media by her husband, Derick Dillard. The shirt she was wearing made her appear to have an obvious baby bump and it got fans talking. Some seem to believe it is solid proof the family is expanding while others believe it was just an unflattering photo. Either way, it seems the rumors of a baby bump will not die when it comes to Jill Duggar.
Recently, Jill Duggar celebrated her birthday with a visit from her family. They flew down to visit her and her little family. Photos were posted of the surprise celebration and Duggar looked over the moon. Could she have told her parents that they are expecting another child? Generally, when the Duggars have news, they hype it up with a planned announcement. Since Jill and Jessa: Counting On is over for the season with no news of a renewal, speculation is that Duggar is not pregnant. Many anticipated an announcement when the finale aired, but there was nothing.
There has been plenty of criticism handed down to Jill Duggar based on how she is raising Israel. She was badgered about taking him out of the country at such a young age. People jumped her for allegedly using the blanket method to train him, which was all assumed from photographs. Duggar has been on the receiving end of a lot of drama, and yet she still remains focused and positive. Without the support of her family being nearby, she is doing surprisingly well in an unknown country and seems to be enjoying herself.
Talk of a pregnancy pact between Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar has been addressed recently. The two girls were incredibly close before Jill took off with her husband and young son. Since the Duggar family is good at playing things out for ratings, it was rumored that the sisters planned to be pregnant together in hopes their show would be renewed for a second season. There has been no confirmation on an actual pregnancy pact, but seeing the sisters pregnant together again and due around the same time would give fans something to look forward to at the moment.
Right now, Jill Duggar has not confirmed a pregnancy. If there was something going on, pictures would be withheld until there was an announcement made. Fans and critics so desperately want Duggar to be pregnant again, it is almost like a cat and mouse game. The Dillard family does plan to expand their family, but there is no set time for when each baby should come along. Right now, they are enjoying doing their mission work and enjoying watching Israel grow up. The mystery surrounding Jill Duggar being pregnant will continue to go round and round unless she confirms there is a baby on the way or denies the allegations in a statement.
