Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, are enjoying life as newlyweds and soon-to-be new parents.

The pair has been preparing for their new adventure in all of the fun ways most new parents do.

Jill Duggar is about 22 weeks along now, but they are wasting no time.

They shared their baby's ultrasound in a video posted on TLC's website and talked about all they are doing to get ready.

"I am keeping his ultrasound pictures safe – it is so exciting to look at this picture," Jill Duggar told People. "He is moving and kicking now, and it's crazy to realize I have this wonderful baby boy inside me."

Even Derick is getting in on the action and learning what a dad-to-be can do to help.


He said, "I am learning a lot about birth. We are doing our homework together, and I keep reading new things, the medical aspects are fascinating to me. I'm a Boy Scout, and being prepared is my motto. I'm going to be prepared."

Being prepared shouldn't be a problem for the two of them. They are planning on a natural home birth and have been doing a lot of research and practicing breathing techniques.

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have even been keeping a journal and singing "Jesus Loves Me" to the baby boy every night.

"Baby Dilly", as the baby has been dubbed by Jill Duggar, will be arriving in March, but the couple hasn't done anything with the baby's room just yet. They say that there will be plenty of time after the holidays to get the baby's nursery ready.

What do you think of Jill Duggar's plans for their new baby?
