Fans are convinced another Jill Duggar pregnancy announcement will not be coming anytime soon. The Counting On star has had two very difficult deliveries, and many followers believe she may not be able to have more children.
“It seems like she has a very difficult time bearing children. I’m not a doctor so I’m not sure what the prognosis is regarding future pregnancies when you’ve already had two cesarean sections,” one redditor wrote, before another added, “What I’m hoping is that in this re-evaluation period, Jill realizes that her body has been through two traumatic births in a short period. I’m hoping that Jill will focus on her sons for a little while, and if she wants to try again for another baby, she will wait a few years and then have a qualified physician supervise her pregnancy the whole way through instead of just showing up at the ER after laboring at home for three days.”
During her last pregnancy, Jill revealed that she underwent 40 hours of labor at home before being rushed to the hospital to welcome son Samuel. During her first delivery with son Israel, now two years old, she also labored for over 70 hours. It was speculated at the time that the brunette beauty underwent a hysterectomy after she shared a cryptic Bible verse on social media. However, some fans believe Jill and her hubby Derick Dillard will definitely be able to have another bundle of joy.
“It is possible that Jill can have more children. My mom has had three c-sections for all three of her children… So yes it is possible for Jill to have more children,” a fan commented. “I have to agree with other redditors and say that if Jill has another child then it will probably be born by c-section.”
Shortly after her wedding in June 2014, Jill, 26, revealed she wanted a big family. “Both of us want as many kids as God will give us,” she told ABC. “My parents have kept popping them out, so we’ll see how [our] fertility is! We’ll just see what God brings along and it’s exciting.” We just hope Jill is happy and healthy.
