If you’re a Duggar woman of a certain age, then thousands of people are going to be constantly speculating on the state of your uterus.
And that’s just the way it is.
Ever since Michelle got her family famous by giving birth to as many children as she possibly could, this has become the Duggar legacy.
Well, this and that whole mess with Josh.
Jim Bob and Michelle don’t believe in birth control, and Michelle has said many times that she feels it is her duty as a wife to make herself available for her husband each and every time he feels like getting down.
Michelle has also said that overpopulation isn’t an issue because every single person in the whole entire world could fit inside Jacksonville, Florida, and while that isn’t immediately relevant, it’s just a funny/tragic thing to think about.
As the years go by, we’re seeing more and more that the Duggar children don’t necessarily follow each and every religious rule that their parents hold so dear.
Like, some of the girls have been wearing pants.
But judging by rumors and a few suspicious photos, it looks like Jill Duggar may just be relating to her mom’s belief of popping out one baby right after the other.
Jill and her husband, Derick Dillard, welcomed their second child back in July. We don’t know too much about the birth, but there are quite a few clues that it was a rough one.
The new baby didn’t get a spread in People, which has become customary for new Duggar babies, and Jill didn’t share anything about him on social media for a while, which was also strange.
We do know that she had an emergency c-section, and that she also had an emergency c-section with her first child.
You’d think that after that experience, which had to be at least a little traumatic based on just those few details we do know, that it would be a little while before she and Derick would even think about having another child.
But according to some pretty persistent rumors, you’d think wrong!
We haven’t seen too much of Jill lately — probably because her husband has been acting like a massive jackass — but in the few photos and videos we’ve seen of her, many people seem to think she’s got a baby bump.
Back in November, the Duggar family’s Facebook page shared a video of her teaching one of her little sisters how to make an apple crisp, and the comments on the video were full of people convinced she was pregnant yet again.
And then on Thanksgiving, Derick shared a photo of the two of them together, and — you guessed it! — his followers saw more proof of pregnancy.
Now Derick has shared yet another holiday photo in which they’re kissing under the mistletoe.
And wouldn’t you know it, there’s that pesky baby bump again!
Many of Derick’s followers took this as confirmation of her pregnancy, leaving comments like “Jill is totally pregnant!!!”
Another agreed, writing “Yup 3rd on the way.”
“Here comes another baby!!” another person announced.
But others weren’t so convinced — one person pointed out that “she probably still has baby fat” from her last pregnancy, and another noted that “It may just seem that way because of how she is bent backwards.”
“I really hope you’re never in a situation where people say you look pregnant when you’re not,” one particularly kind person wrote. “It won’t feel very good.”
Because while it’s fun to speculate about pregnancy, especially when there’s such a high likelihood of pregnancy, there’s a very, very real chance that Jill isn’t expecting at all.
It’s just been five months since she gave birth to her second child, and it’s perfectly normal for her not to have “bounced back” already.
Throw in the fact that she had an emergency c-section along with the rumored problems she and her baby faced after that c-section, and we wouldn’t expect her to be too worried about her figure right now.
Of course she could be pregnant — she could have been trying for baby number three for months now, for all we know.
But until she or Derick make an actual announcement, maybe let’s just chill with all this, all right?
