At 15 weeks and 2 days, Jill Duggar is now in her second trimester, and she and husband Derick Dillard are looking better than ever in what he described as “the best trimester!”
“We’re excited to feel the baby move, find out the gender, feel better,” the mom-to-be said in a video posted online for her 19 Kids and Counting fans. “You’re not super pregnant, yet… Yeah, it’s exciting.”
So far, the second trimester has served the 23-year-old well, as she revealed the morning sickness has subsided—“praise the lord” she raved!
During her first trimester, the newlyweds agreed her cravings were specific — when asked, they said “cold!” in unison!
“My first trimester, everything cold so whether it was sour, sweet, whatever it had to be cold, but now in my second semester, almost anything,” she said when asked about her pregnancy must-haves.
Her husband agreed about the change in their diet and cravings—yes, their!
“Now we’re eating all foods,” he added with a laugh. “We’re both gaining weight at a steadier pace.”
As Jill, who is a trained midwife, noted earlier in the video, the second trimester is an exciting time as it’s when they find out the gender of #BabyDilly — but they already have a hunch about what to expect.
“Right now, there’s a lot to make us think we’re having a girl, but we’re just guessing,” Derick said with a huge smile on his face.
On the other hand, the pregnant reality starlet is thinking slightly more rationally.

“We’ve got lots of people telling us it’s a girl, but lots of other ones saying it’s a boy,” Jill explained. “So, really, we got about a 50/50 chance.”
Regardless, it’s clear the couple couldn’t be happier about starting their little family.
“Could be either one,” Derick gushed.
At the end of TLC’s video, Jill teased fans with a huge announcement coming Oct. 21—any guesses what it could be? Sound off in the comments!
