For what it may be worth: If there is any merit in considering this metaphor for a Rapture date candidate, these dates are all pretty soon.
Ob-Gyn conventions for human gestation period lengths seem to be:
• Early term: Birthed between 37 weeks 0 days and 38 weeks, six days
• Full term: Birthed between 39 weeks and 40 weeks, six days
• Late term: Birthed between 41 weeks and 41 weeks, six days
• Post term: Birthed at 42 weeks and beyond
Given these conventions, in order to be “birthed” on 23 September 2017 (e.g., per Revelation 12), the following ranges of Rapture date candidates would apply:
• Post term: Gestation would begin 3 December 2016 or earlier
• Late term: Gestation would begin between 4 December and 10 December 2016
• Full term: Gestation would begin between 11 December and 24 December 2016
• Early term: Gestation would begin between 25 December 2016 and 7 January 2017
I’d really like it if the gestation period began this week – i.e., gestation taking longer than normal

Thank you for the post MWS, this gives me a little more spring in my step…pun intended.. 😉 while we go through
the Christmas season. Things have been a little quiet here lately and this post comes quite timely! I know we are all so ready….and we also know His timing is perfect.

Here are some very interesting facts during this coming Gestation period.
Dec 25th is first day of Hanukkah and Jan 1st is 8th day. As the Light of the world, Jesus celebrated this feast day. Could this be the reverse of the gestation period of the first coming ?
The 7th of June in 2017 is Pentecost.
Sept. 21 and 22nd of 2017 are the two days of Rosh HaShannah. (feast of Trumpets) Could this be the signal for the Rapture on the 23rd which is a Sabbath day of rest?

Those are indeed compelling observations / speculations Tom, however they simply are way longer than I want to wait. And God has always considered my preferences, particularly within the contexts of Christendom, the world, and the cosmos.
