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.

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 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.

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 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."

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!

In a new sneak peek from TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, Jill Duggar and now-husband Derick Dillard scope out possible venues for their big wedding.

Emphasis on big. Nothing about the Duggar family is small, people!

As they narrowed down locations for their June 21 nuptials in Springdale, Ark., they first needed to find one with the capacity to hold 1,000 individuals.

A thousand. And you thought your wedding was overwhelming!

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard were joined by Jill's mother, Michelle Duggar, for the outing, where they even looked at the place she married Jim Bob.

"I'm very familiar with Cross Church. My parents were actually married there and then they renewed their vows there," Jill explained to the cameras.

Jill joked about the "Duggar sized" stage the church offered, while the duo held hands and walked around the location, which seats up to 1,500 guests.
