Jill Duggar Is ‘Childproofing’ Her Home, and Fans Are Wondering If She’s Pregnant

Counting On is back with a new season, and fans can’t wait to see what the Duggars are up to next. We’ve been watching Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar take care of their 19 children for over a decade, and now, it’s their older kids who are taking the spotlight. Unfortunately, while we all love watching Jana, Jessa, and Jinger on the small screen, Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, are missing from the show.

Derick got himself and his wife kicked off of the program due to transphobic tweets of the past. And since then, the couple has been quite active on social media, as they maintain a heavy following from Duggar fans. It looks like fans are really looking into Jill’s latest post about “childproofing” her home, too, as many believe this is a sign she could be pregnant.

The Duggars are well-known for having many kids, as it’s their belief that God determines how many children they should have. And that’s one of the reasons Jill and Derick have stated they want as many kids of their own as possible. As Jill told ABC News back in 2014, “Both of us want as many kids as God will give us and we’ve talked about adoption. My parents have kept popping them out so we’ll see how [our] fertility is!”

Today, Jill and Derick have two sons, Samuel and Israel — and fans are wondering when the family’s going to announce another baby. It’s no secret that Jill’s had difficult pregnancies in the past, however. And some wonder if she’s even capable of having more kids after her last two Caesarian sections.

Jill recently posted to Instagram about ‘childproofing’ her home

There’s been a ton of recent speculation regarding a possible upcoming pregnancy for Jill. Multiple Duggar women are pregnant currently, and Jessa, whom Jill is quite close with, also recently had a baby girl. To add to wondering fans’ minds, Jill also just posted a photo to her Instagram of various drills and home improvement tools. “Finally…for the 3rd time in 3 years I’m getting the cabinet locks on. #childproofing #moves,” she captioned the post.

It was this post that had many wondering if she was childproofing her home due to a possible pregnancy. “Oh wow! Y’all expecting baby #3? Great that you’re getting a head start on #babyproofing!” one fan commented. Another wrote, “Are you expecting???” Yet another added, “I got really excited and thought this was an announcement!!” 

Jill and Derick mentioned pregnancy in a recent Instagram Live video

It seems this post wasn’t actually a video announcing a pregnancy — and some fans came to Jill’s defense in the comments section, too. “Sam is only 2 and they just moved… putting locks on a cabinet does not indicate someone is pregnant by any means. Two year olds are into everything. I’m sure it’s just a precaution given her children are young and she has so many nieces and nephews,” one knowing follower wrote.

Even if Jill isn’t pregnancy currently, we can’t forget that the subject was mentioned in a recent Instagram Live video from the couple. “Jill’s not pregnant. We’re not gonna be pregnant this year.” After Derick said this, however, Jill gave Derick a look and added, “We aren’t gonna have a baby or we’re not gonna get pregnant?” Derick then clarified, “We’re definitely not having a baby this year. That’s biologically, pretty close to impossible.”

Could this mean a pregnancy for Derick and Jill could still occur in 2019? That’s what it sounds like, but we’ll have to wait and find out! For now, it seems Jill and Derick are just childproofing their home for their current little ones, however.
