Shortly after Jill and Derick Dillard welcomed their first baby boy, Israel David, they said that things didn't exactly go as planned. Now, we're hearing all about her dramatic delivery.
In an interview with People magazine, Jill revealed that she was in labor for 70 hours! (Catch your breath all moms-to-be.)

Originally, Jill was planning an at-home birth and had been on record many times saying so, but it things didn't end up that way.
After her water finally broke — nearly two weeks after her original due date — Jill tested positive for strep B, a common bacteria that can transfer from mom to baby during birth, and began taking antibiotics via an IV, she told the magazine.
After 20 hours in labor and little progression, Jill saw a faint stain of meconium (the earliest waste of an unborn infant, often a sign of fetal distress.) From there, the couple changed their decision to have a home birth, deciding, instead, to head to the hospital.
There, she initially declined to take pain medication and hormones that speed up labor, but the complications got worse — the baby had flipped into a transverse breech position (sideways and upside down), was experiencing irregular heart rates and had not yet descended.

The couple finally decided to have a C-section.
"His birth didn't go as expected," Jill said. "But having him here - it's worth all of it. I wouldn't do anything differently."
She continued, "I love our birth story because it bonded us so well. I still haven't changed a single diaper. Derick has been changing them all."
Derick has been changing every single diaper? Perhaps in his mind things still aren't going according to plan!
