When you come from a family of 19 kids (and counting), you probably get used to planning for every contingency. So it makes sense that when the nine-months-pregnant Jill Duggar Dillard announced her due date, she had another one lined up, too!

As Dillard told People, she's planning on her first baby coming late. It seems that March 24 (that's today!) is her official due date, but she thinks April 5 is more likely.

"I have told myself, 'first-time moms often go a week and a half over so don't get discouraged,'" the 23-year-old student midwife, who has helped deliver 30 children, said. "The baby will come when the baby comes."

In honor of the official date's imminence, Dillard and husband Derick posted a joyous collection of photos on Instagram over the weekend, writing, "Happy 9 monthiversary @jillmdillard !!! A LOT has happened since June 21! I am blessed beyond measure and every day is even better with you baby! You're my best friend, and I love you with all my heart! #newlyweds#newdad"


"It is really exciting to be studying this when pregnant," Dillard added. "It takes on a whole different light when you are studying about what you are going through."
