Getting a Pedicure Wasn't the Craziest Thing Jill Duggar Did After Her Water Broke

If you thought that Jill Duggar would just sit around and wait for Baby Dilly to arrive, boy, were you wrong. The first-time mom just revealed exactly what she did before her son made his appearance and we're learning that Duggar visited the chiropractor and got a pedicure... after her water broke!


That's right. When her water broke in the wee hours of April 4 (and marked the start of what would be a 70 hours labor), she just went back to sleep. No fuss, no commotion, just got back to dreaming.

But no word to anyone else, apparently. "We didn't tell anyone else that her water had broken," Derick told PEOPLE.

"We didn't want anyone to be freaking out," Jill added.

After a restful (we imagine) sleep, she made an early morning  chiropractor's appointment that she had previously set because she "wanted to get aligned before birth."

Then, just to primp and prep a little more for their son, she and Derick went to a couple's pedicure. As if that weren't enough, they also went on a two-and-a-half-mile walk to really get the labor going.

After all those eventful activities, she finally took up residence back in their bedroom, where she was supposed to delivery Baby Dilly. Of course, now we know that Israel was actually born via c-section in the hospital, and to a very determined mom.

Seriously... a chiropractor appointment, a pedicure, and a hike? That's an impressive itinerary any day, but especially hours after your water broke. Great work, Jill!

What did you do after your water broke?
