No news is good news, except when you're a newlywed anxiously anticipating the arrival of your first child! Jill Duggar is now six days past her March 24 due date, but the 23-year-old first-time mom is taking it all in stride.
According to People, Jill and her husband of nine months, Derick Dillard, aren't too anxious about the their sons late arrival. "I'm feeling great," Jill said in posted to the Duggar family's Facebook page yesterday. They are, however, monitoring her activity level and diet. "I'll try and add up her protein every day, make sure we're getting 60 to 80 grams of protein," Derick shared. "At the same time you don't want to get too much because you don't want to have a 10 lb. baby."
Although their days are likely fraught with excitement about when they will finally get to meet Baby Dilly, the pair had something else to celebrate yesterday. "One year ago I got down and proposed to Jill," Derick explained in the video. "And now, nine months later, we're expecting our first, and we're actually five days overdue. He could come at any moment. It's a matter of time right now."
The social media-loving mom-to-be took a break from posting baby bump selfies on her Instagram to share a photo of the day Derick popped the question. "One year ago today, the sweetest man in the world asked me to marry him! I said "yes, totally!"... now, 9 months into marriage we await the arrival of our little #babydilly," she captioned the photo.
Whenever their baby does arrive, we know these new parents are ready for the challenge! Last week Jill shared a photo of Derick installing a car seat and both parents were gifted all the baby necessities at their joint shower last month.
