Even though Jill Duggar is now officially in labor, she's not letting it slow her down. In fact, just the opposite. She's not just sitting around, waiting at home, counting the minutes until the pushing begins. Instead, she's out and about and being proactive. But we're still far away from Baby Dilly's arrival.


Just this morning, Derick tweeted a cryptic message about the "womb," so we all immediately assumed the big day was here. Hours later, he confirmed that Jill was in labor with a blog post on the couple's new family site.

Now, we're learning new information. Here's what else we know about the day:

Baby Dilly is on his own clock. In a new tweet from Derick, he revealed that while Jill may techinically be in labor, there's still plenty of time to go before they're parents:

And Jill confimed that they're not yet hanging out in the birthing tub or started the next stage of labor.

Instead, she's actually going for the spicy food option and lighting a fire under Baby Dilly:

Jill, the trained midwife, has idenitified the current labor pains and just Braxton Hicks contractions, which occur before actual labor starts. These are not a sign that its time to push, and could actually start days, and sometimes weeks, before the final stage of labor.

So while Derick did declare that Jill's in labor, we still have plenty of time to go.

Hang in there, Jill!

When do you think Baby Dilly will arrive?
