Jessa Duggar, Jill Duggar and their respective partners have gone uncharacteristically quiet (or at least quieter) on social media, and it's likely not an accident.

Jessa, Jill, Ben and Derick

Typically staples of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as well, Jessa Duggar, Jill Duggar, Ben Seewald and Derick Dillard have dialed it back in mid-October.

Could this indicate that the recent backlash over several of Jessa's recent postings have caused them all to scale back - possibly at father Jim Bob's urging?

Jessa hasn’t posted on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook since October 5, when she shared a link questioning if radiometric dating proves that the Earth is old.

That’s a long break for a usually daily social media user, who also sparked major criticism with her passionate comments on abortion and the Holocaust.

Jessa’s fiance has also stayed off social media since October 4, although Ben Seewald's father made more headlines for a blog post likening her critics to Hitler.

The married and less controversial Jill and Derick Dillard have also backed off significantly, posting only one benign snapshot apiece this month to date.

On TLC's 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 12 Tuesday night, Duggar family fans saw the countdown to Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard's wedding in full swing.

We know how THAT turned out, if you know what we're saying!

NOTE: We're saying they got married and she's pregnant.

Just because we all know the happy ending doesn't make 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 12 any less fun to watch, of course, as we go behind the scenes.

With the wedding right around the corner, Jill's parents Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar are hosting weekly counseling sessions with the soon to be newlyweds.

Not that they need them. These kids have good heads on their shoulders and are clearly all in when it comes to the Duggar family dating rules and such.

Meanwhile, Jill’s siblings, from the lovely Jana Duggar all the way down to the littlest ones, are starting to realize that she's leaving the nest, and it's bittersweet.

In this week's counseling session, the pair talks finances, and Derick - a hard worker who knows how to save, and be frugal - is cut from the same cloth.

Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard are planning ahead for her labor and delivery process. The two are writing Bible verses for the big event!

Derick Dillard Writes Bible Verses

The 19 Kids and Counting twosome recently took the time to write out passages from the Bible - by hand - to hold on to during the birth of #BabyDilly.

"Writing out bible verses for encouragement during pregnancy, labor and delivery!" Duggar wrote on her Instagram account, a go-to for pregnancy info.

"#scriptureboard #babydilly #pregnancyprep #blessedparents."

The mom-to-be, who has shared some good Jill Duggar baby bump photos already, showed off another glimpse of her growing bump as she sat on Dillard.

Sorting through the scriptures, the religious couple wrote several passages down with different colored pens, including Isaiah 26:3 and Deuteronomy 4:9.

19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 8 saw the Duggar girls go glam, in preparation for Jill's big wedding, which on the show is just six weeks away.

What did this endeavor entail for members of the enormous Arkansas family?

For Jill Duggar, it meant selecting five bridesmaids and one very special Maid of Honor. No, it wasn't Jessa Duggar ... but their older sister, Jana Duggar!

Their first stop was a hair salon, to try out some different hairstyles and makeup in preparation for the big day. Did we mention it's just six weeks out?!

Jill is far from a bridezilla, of course, in keeping with her humble and modest roots, and Derick Dillard reveals he likes her her best natural and curly.

Yup, their heads are in the right places, 1,000-person wedding and all.

That's not to say the Duggars don't look amazing with their hair and makeup done on 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 8. They really do.

When it comes to Jill and her husband Derick Dillard, or Jessa and her fiance Ben Seewald, fans who watch 19 Kids and Counting know how smitten they are.

Their love knows no boundaries, it seems ... well, except in the physical sense.

Strict parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have imposed a stringent policy when it comes to letting their girls see young men, but they do not rebel.

On the contrary, Jessa and Jill buy in to the family philosophy, and then some.

When it comes to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, they are all about the sex, as evidenced by their giant brood. But there is a time and place for it.

That time is after marriage, the couple believes, no ifs ands or buts about it.

On TLC's 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 6, Jill Duggar went shopping for a wedding dress. Flanked by her mother and siblings, obviously.

This point in the planning process was a family affair (aren't they all?) and took place on a girls trip to D.C. to visit Josh Duggar and his wife Anna.

Jill chose her maid of honor (Jana Duggar), and bridesmaids (her older sisters, plus Anna Duggar) and went to find a dress at a place in Fredericksburg, Va.

After a day of scoping out potential choices, Jill found her dress, and there was no hemming and hawing before she said yes to this special garment.

Sometimes, as we saw on 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 6, you just knew. This was certainly the case when she met Derick Dillard!

Before you know it, she'll be walking down the aisle in that beautiful gown, as each episode of the reality TV series brings us closer to that milestone.

With Jill, Derick, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald becoming quasi-celebrities in their own right these days, we know the events that are to come.

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard did not have premarital sex, despite what some were led to believe given the tight timeline of their marriage and #BabyDilly's conception.

They did, however, share many memorable moments prior to tying the knot, and over the weekend, the cute couple returned to the scene of a special one.

  • Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard Date
  • Dillard, Jill and Derick

The pregnant 19 Kids and Counting couple went to the very same restaurant where, not even six months ago, they celebrated the news of their engagement!

Naturally, there were selfies, and Instagram hashtags to go around.

The always-gushing-mother-to-be, 23, shared for her fans a picture of herself and hubby Derick, 25, dining at Table Mesa, a Latin restaurant in Bentonville, Ark.

"Hadn't been there since the day we got engaged," she wrote.

"Yummy food! #tablemesa #dinnerdate #derickdillard"

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 ...

With the arrival of Baby Dilly still six months away Jill Duggar and Derrick Dillard have created their baby registry so that family and friends can start helping them stock up on the essentials.

You know, stuff like clothes, diapers, and... Dr. Pepper?

Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard have some lunch at work. So cute.

Yes, Jill and Derick's request for caffeinated soda raised some eyebrows, but the mom-to-be assured her fans that the sugary drinks are not for their future bundle of joy.

"Derick said we should put Dr. Pepper on there," Jill said in a recent interview. "Because if you have late nights, you need caffeine."

"I told him I like Fanta, so he put that on there as well. And some Gatorade."

See? Perfectly reasonable explanation. Hopefully at some point Jill will take a sip or two of some actual water, but as long as she puts off any heavy caffeine consumption until after the baby is born, everything should be fine.

We just wouldn't want to see Baby Dilly pop out with a raging Fanta habit.

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.
