No progress

So the dove eggs still haven't hatched and I am trying to figure it out. Today is day 21 of the eggs living on my truck, the mother and father birds are still sitting on the nest religiously, however the eggs are supposed to hatch in 14-17 days so what gives????

To those of you who thought this was a "sign" what do you think now?

I am beginning to wonder if the eggs are even viable - wouldn't that be a sick twist - 2 non-viable eggs that represent our 2 miscarriages. Two doting bird parents who have not given up on these eggs and continue to sit day and night - represent Pace and I's 5+ year journey to become parents - unsuccessfully.

Anyone want to take this one on and give your opinion? My ears are wide open!

I am definitely calling the bird lady today though because we HAVE to use that truck this weekend (my husband is going skydiving) I have no idea how I am going to survive watching him jump out of a plane at 12,000 feet...I just can't even think about it. BUT it is something he has wanted to do since I met him...so who am I to hold him back?

I think the eggs are waiting to hatch on Easter because of what it means to you guys. I don't think God is that cruel to let you witness your life through the doves.

Pace and Greg are crazy...skydiving and the Army. Why can't they do safe things like crocheting, lol!

Hmmmm. I don't know about the eggs. I hope Jess is right and that they hatch on Easter. :) What a great way to signify a fresh beginning.

Ok I don't know much about signs but I used to own doves and know a tiny bit about them. I know that it's very, very hard to tell the females from the males.The only way to know for sure is with a DNA test and that even 2 females will take turns sitting on unfertilized eggs. They will just sit and sit and sit. I had 2 they did forever I had to throw the eggs out because it was clear that I had to female birds at that point.They will sometimes assume passive and dominant roles even though they are both female. I know it's not very much in the way of sign but maybe it will help in the way of understanding what may be going on. I don't know maybe that's it or maybe it's something else I have no idea I thought I would at least offer what I know. Take care hun

No idea on the eggs - hope they are just late bloomers. That would be better symbolism for your journey...just when you are starting to lose hope it all works out.

I don't think I'd have the nerve to watch my husband skydive. Craziness!
