Ever since the world learned that Jill Duggar is pregnant with her second child, fans have been scrutinizing the Counting On star’s every Instagram post.
All of the Duggars who are permitted to have social media pages (the family forbids them before marriage) are constantly under a microscope, but in Jill’s case, the probing has been particularly relentless.
The reason, of course, is that Jill’s not big on lounging around the house and allow others to look after her, even when she’s expecting.
Jill and Derick performed missionary work in El Salvador through the majority of her pregnancy, flying home to Arkansas just before the start of her third trimester.
So now the Dillards are safely back in Tontitown, and with Jill due in July, Duggar watchers assumed she’s be taking it easy from here on out.
Oh, how wrong they were.
Jill posted the photo below to her Instagram page this week, and it seems to have fans in an uproar:
“We had a wonderful time visiting you @justdand at Camp Orr. Brought back some great scouting memories, and Israel really loved it! #camporr #bsa #vespers #buffaloriver #nofilter,” Jill captioned the pic.
It may seem innocuous enough, but as many fans pointed out, Jill is at a point where she should probably cool it with the constant travel and activities and prepare herself.
“Hunny you need to be resting and preparing for delivery,” wrote one fan.
“Please let Jill rest! Poor sweet lady!” commented another.
Several fans blamed Derick for Jill being constantly on the go, but that seems to be the way she prefers to live her life.
Throughout their time in Central America, many questioned if the Dillards were safe, particularly as they shared harrowing stories of close friends being murdered and impoverished neighbors dying of preventable diseases.
In an impassioned defense of their decision to continue performing missionary work abroad, the couple wrote:
“From the early stages of our lives, the Lord has put a deep love and care in both of our hearts for all peoples of the world that they would come to repentance and out their hope in the Lord, Jesus Christ.”
Yes, Jill is the type of woman who never thought twice about living in an impoverished village throughout not one, but two pregnancies.
We’re sure a little light hiking won’t hurt her.
