With Jill Dillard set to give birth to her first child with husband Derick any day now, baby Dilly was nearly a Texas baby!

Away from their home state of Arkansas, the Dillards spent som quality time together on a pre-baby family vacation.

But don’t worry – they planned for the possibility that baby Dilly might arrive in advance of his March 24 due date. “We contacted midwives in Texas while we were there just to be safe,” Jill tells PEOPLE. “There is a lot of support there, and we felt secure being there.”

“We had a great time with family on vacation,” wrote Dillard, 26, in the caption of an Instagram photo of himself cradling his wife’s pregnant belly, “but it doesn’t look like we’re going to have a Texas baby.”

“This guy is going to be a daddy,” reads the T-shirt of a grinning Dillard. Indeed he is – and really soon!

Jill says she is feeling well, but her Braxton Hicks contractions sometimes make her father, Jim Bob, 49, nervous.

“He’s checking in, asking how regular they are,” she says, with a laugh. “I feel great, the baby is moving around a lot.”

19 Kids and Counting airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.
