Pregnant Jill Dillard is letting fans know how she’s doing after being diagnosed with COVID last week. The Duggar daughter, unfortunately, tested positive for COVID just a couple of weeks after announcing her third baby is on the way. She and her husband, Derick Dillard, have both been sick with COVID.

The pair was especially concerned about this due to Jill being pregnant. Before getting pregnant with this baby, the Duggar daughter had a miscarriage. So, she was extra anxious about her diagnosis.

The couple recently spoke with TMZ about contracting COVID while Jill is pregnant. They said they have been working closely with Jill’s doctor to ensure the baby stays safe and healthy. She has been taking baby aspirin to prevent blood clots. She also monitors the baby’s heart rate and the number of times they kick each day.
