Jill Duggar's pregnancy timeline has raised some interesting questions, but the math that allegedly "proves" she had sex before marriage is just wrong.

  • Jill M. Dillard
  • Jill Duggar Baby Bump Photo: 13 Weeks!

The speculation began because of the most recent Jill Duggar baby bump photo, in which she holds a sign proclaiming #BabyDilly is 13 weeks and a day old.

Jill married Derick Dillard June 21 in Springdale, Ark, and a little over two months later, the duo announced they are expecting their first child together.

No question about it, that was extremely quick ... but they didn't conceive before they tied the knot. Heck, they didn't even kiss, as per the courtship rules.

With this documented so thoroughly on TV (which you know if you watch 19 Kids and Counting online), why is anyone even doubting Jill on this subject?

Because 13 weeks and one day along (or 93 days), but her three days ahead of the amount of time she's been married, or 90 days from the photo date.

It's not that simple, of course, and we'll explain why ...

You can literally expect a Jill Duggar photo in this exact pose for the next 27 weeks or so. She's chronicling her baby bump's growth on Instagram!

Here's the pregnant wife of Derick Dillard at 13 weeks and 1 day ...

Jill Duggar Baby Bump Photo: 13 Weeks!

"In our second trimester now!" Jill wrote alongside the latest photo of her small bump, adding that "Baby Dilly" is now the size of a fuzzy sweet Georgia peach!"

Aww. Derick, 25, posted the same shot of Jill, 23, online as well.

"Officially in our second trimester!" Dillard wrote. "Our baby is now the size of a fuzzy sweet Georgia peach! #babydilly #secondtrimester #jillmdillard #derickdillard."

The duo confirmed that they were expecting their first child last month, just 60 days after their wedding and the first kiss (and more!) that followed.

"We really didn't know how long we'd be able to keep it a secret with all of our friends," Jill Duggar said in an interview. "We wanted to tell them."

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have no dirty laundry in the figurative sense. This is the most earnest, virtuous, clean cut, quasi-celebrity couple of all time.

They do produce plenty of dirty laundry, of course. But only literally.

Jill Duggar, Laundry

Naturally, the pregnant Jill Duggar's two favorite things in life are married life with Derick Dillard and Instagram, so even this makes it into her feed.

Never a big spender or one to brag about stuff - except maybe how in love she is with Derick and their unborn child - Jill is grateful for the little things in life.

That even extends to washing Derick's clothes. She's a keeper!

The reality star, whose love story continued to play out on Tuesday night's 19 Kids and Counting Season 8 Episode 5, gushed about cleaning via Instagram.

For Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, life has officially come full circle.

On 19 Kids and Counting Season 8 Episode 4, Jill Duggar went shopping for wedding rings with fiance Derick Dillard, and Michelle knew the place well.

She and Jim Bob went to that same place, 30-some years ago.

Jill and Derick got married at the same church where her parents tied the knot in Arkansas, so it's bringing back all sorts of memories for the older couple.

Bittersweet is a good word for how Jim Bob feels, as he's having a hard time letting go of his daughter. Emotionally, anyway. He does love Derick.

No matter how much he approves and how supportive it is, it's hard for a tight-knit family like this to come to terms with Jill leaving the nest. But it's life.

Make no mistake, for all the Duggar dating rules and things none of us can relate to about their lives, Jim Bob's instinct is to make his kids happy.

Never was this more obvious than when he lobbied to have Jessa Duggar's boyfriend Ben Seewald, who lived four hours away, move closer to them.

Like, a lot closer to them. Think ON THE COMPOUND!

She's still in her first trimester, but Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard spent the weekend getting ready for the arrival of their first child ... by setting up a registry!

"Having fun creating our baby registry!" Dillard, 25, wrote alongside a photo of them scanning items. "Looking forward to 'Baby Dilly's' arrival in just 6 months!"

  • Derick and Jill Make a Registry
  • Mr. & Mrs. Derick Dillard

Like Jill and Derick's wedding registry, the proud future parents actually have multiple, and they're not fancy. This is a no-frills couple, TLC fame be darned.

So far, the Dillards have requested a three-piece crib bed set with a vintage floral print, pacifiers and bibs emblazoned with Arkansas Razorbacks logos.

Standard stuff right there.

They also want a video monitor, which should make it easier than ever for them to take photos of #BabyDilly sleeping for their respective Instagram pages.

And, of course, the pregnant Jill Duggar posted an Instagram picture of herself on her husband's lap, asking about "cloth diapers when 'Baby Dilly' arrives."

"Any suggestions?"

19 Kids and Counting star Michelle Duggar turned 48 years old Saturday. Naturally, she was showered with love from her adoring brood. And it's a big brood.

  • Michelle and Jill Duggar
  • Josh and Michelle Duggar

The family matriarch received some nice birthday pampering courtesy of her daughter Jill Duggar, currently expecting her first child with husband Derick Dillard.

Her first born child of those 19 kids and counting, Josh Duggar, sent along a selfie (above, right) and the message, "Happy birthday to the best mom ever! #19kids"

19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar's baby bump is starting to materialize, albeit slightly, but at 12 weeks, she's still quite early in her first pregnancy.

A pregnancy that she's been documenting publicly since the very beginning.

Jill Duggar Baby Bump Photo: 12 Weeks!

With this Instagram photo Wednesday, Jill showed off her changing body.

"Had our 12 wk midwife appt yesterday! #babydilly #jillmdillard #derickdillard #blessedparents," Jill, a midwife in training herself, captioned the pic.

Husband Derick Dillard posted an earlier photo collage of his wife September 5, showing her progress at five weeks, five days and then at 11 weeks, two days.

The first-time father-to-be wrote:

"By the end of next week, all of our baby's body parts, from tooth buds to toenails, will be developing! #firsttrimesterprogression #babydilly #19kidsandcounting."

Check out those pics below:

19 Kids and Counting star Jessa Duggar and her fiance Ben Seewald are engaged and wasting little time before they exchange vows. They will wed November 1!

The couple's courtship is playing out on TV right now - watch 19 Kids and Counting online to see the most recent two installments - and it's sweet as can be.

TLC has also released two new photos of the duo's engagement. Take a look!

  • Jessa Duggar, Ben Seewald Engagement
  • Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald Engagement

The photos come after we got a close-up look at Jessa Duggar's engagement ring, a .75 carat diamond with an 18 karat gold band, via her Instagram.

Duggar, 21, got engaged to Ben Seewald, 19, after 11 months of dating.

Or courting, as the lovebirds would obviously correct you and term it.

Either way, "We are so blessed to be engaged!" the couple gushed.

"God has written an amazing story through our courtship, and another chapter has just begun! We are thrilled to see what the future holds - especially the wedding bells!"

Jill Duggar says she was surprised to learn that she was expecting last month, having taken two negative pregnancy tests prior to getting a positive reading.

"I was thinking that maybe we should take a pregnancy test," recalls the 19 Kids and Counting star and wife of Derick Dillard, 23, after her period was late.

She began with two pregnancy tests that "were both negative" she says, but when the results for test #3 arrived, the newlyweds were shocked.

"We were really surprised when we got that positive test," Duggar says, "but of course we were really excited." As for why they even took a third test?

"It was Jinger," Jill says of one of her 20-year-old sister, the first person to learn of her pregnancy. "She was like, 'You know, mama has a bunch of tests upstairs.'"

Jill laughed off the idea, but then decided to try it to prove Jinger wrong. Derick was also present when Jill took the test, sharing in the elated shock.

"I was screaming and everything," she laughs. "He was like, 'Don't get too excited! You might stress out the baby or something.' He's so cute. He's so sweet."

On 19 Kids and Counting Season 8 Episode 2 and 3, the Duggar daughters' dating lives were examined. Or to use the proper terminology, their courting lives.

One of the Duggar family dating/courting rules is that couples be chaperoned, which means Jessa's siblings tag along on dates with her and Ben Seewald.

We saw the downside of this on 19 Kids and Counting Season 8 Episode 2, and not merely because the kids will prevent any possible making out.

When they take his truck, there's not even a third seat! That's a tight squeeze, but you'll never forget the chaperone is there this way ... so mission accomplished?

It's not just Jessa and Ben, either. Before Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are married, they have to deal with this too. Even when her brother gets carsick!

Back to Ben and Jessa, they decided to go to a shooting range, where he was shown up by his date. That Jessa Duggar gun photo wasn't just for show!
