The second daughter to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar says she has been having 'a lot of morning sickness' and craving 'things that are more sour to settle stomach.'
Jill Duggar opened up about her morning sickness and pregnancy cravings. She told ABC News, "They should call it 'pregnancy sickness' because it's all day, but I'm feeling good today! I'm thanking God for this little life and the good signs. It's well worth it."
The "19 Kids and Counting" star, who announced her pregnancy last month, has been doted on by her husband, Derick Dillard, since pregnant. According to Jill, her husband always carries around a "pregnancy bag," which is filled with her favorite foods.
Jill revealed her pregnancy cravings were similar to those of her mother. "[Like my mother, I crave] things that are more sour to settle stomach: dill pickles, lemon with salt or lemon juice with water or salt," she shared, adding she also brings nuts on-hands at all times. "I like cold things [too]. I don't like a lot of hot meals right now but I do try to get protein every two hours."
Jill said she would like to have a natural birth at home with the help of a mid-wife. "I feel like it will be way more relaxing... and having the baby at home with a midwife provides more of that personal care," she claimed, "It's more intimate for the couple as well, getting to be in your own environment."
