Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard haven't met 'Baby Dilly' yet. The 19 Kids and Counting stars are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their little bundle of joy--especially since Derick got fans all excited on Friday, posting that the baby was on his way.

Alas, it wound up being Braxton Hicks contractions that never evolved into real labor, so Jill Duggar is still pregnant.

Now the 19 Kids and Counting couple is hoping for an Easter baby.

On Saturday, Derick Dillard took yet another picture of his wife's growing baby bump. He has done this weekly since discovering they were expecting.

"Still waiting to meet our little guy. Maybe we'll have an Easter baby! #jillmdillard #babydilly," he captioned the photo of Jill Duggar, holding a small chalkboard that reads, '41 weeks, 4 days.'

Jill and Derick are no doubt becoming a bit frustrated by now. They rely strongly on their Christian faith, however, and since Easter is a day of miracles, they are likely holding out hope that they'll experience the miracle of birth on Sunday as well.

Jill Duggar is studying to be a midwife, so she knows all too well that this baby will come--but only when he is good and ready to make his appearance.

TLC will be airing the birth during a special episode of 19 Kids and Counting on May 5th. Of course by then, most fans will have the scoop as to when the baby was born and what Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard decided to name 'Baby Dilly.'
