See the Moment Jill Duggar's Water Breaks in '19 Kids and Counting' Special

Earlier this month, 19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard waited with bated breath for Jill to go into labor. Eleven days after her due date, Jill's water broke, which led to an intense couple of days.

Of course, all the drama was captured on camera for TLC's 19 Kids and Counting two-hour special episode, "Jill's Special Delivery," which aired Tuesday.

At 3:34 a.m., the young mom-to-be's water broke. According to Jill, it was a real wake-up call.

"I think when my water first broke, I was really nervous," Jill recounted during the show. "I was like, 'This means that labor is going to start. Okay. This is for real. This is really gonna happen.'"

Originally Jill and Derick planned on giving birth in their home. They had everything ready, including plastic tarps and an inflatable birthing pool. But after an agonizing 48 hours the family wisely chose to move things to a medical facility.

"We haven't been able to get things going, so at this point we felt like it would be a good time, while I'm not in an emergency situation, to get to the hospital," Jill explained during the special.
