Jill Dillard still hasn't given birth to Baby Dilly, but sources say the birth will be shared in a special episode of 19 Kids and Counting on TLC. It seems the entire ordeal (sounds like labor and birth) will be documented by the TLC cameras and aired on May 5th.

On Friday, Derick Dillard both blogged and tweeted some Scripture and some thoughts that led fans to believe Jill Dillard was in labor. Jill clarified later, saying she was having Braxton Hicks contractions, but as anyone who has had a baby knows, that can quickly turn into the real thing--especially when that baby is more than a week overdue.

Later on Friday, Derick tweeted the following.

"Out to lunch...maybe this spicy Mexican food will make the baby come! Only Braxton Hicks contractions with this weather so far. We shall see what the weekend brings! #nobabyyet #lunchwithmyhubby," Jill Dillard captioned yesterday's Instagram shot.

Even if fans aren't kept abreast of how Jill Dillard and her labor are progressing, they know now they can tune in to 19 Kids and Counting on May 5th, and see whatever she and Derick Dillard allow the cameras to see. You can bet it will be tasteful and modestly filmed, however, given the strict Christian values the family adheres to.

Are you counting the hours until 'Baby Dilly' makes his entrance into the world?
