“Due”

Happy due date to me!

Still no baby. Which isn’t a big surprise. A due date is an average. That means half of all women will give birth before it, and half will give birth after. I guess I’m in the second half!

After all, the E in EDD stands for estimated, not expiration.

I will say, however, it is very fun to watch strangers’ expressions when they ask when I’m due and I say, “Today.” One poor high school girl yesterday jumped when I told her, “Tomorrow,” and got very cautious. She clearly thought that meant I WAS having the baby the next day, and was waiting for my water to break in a dramatic gush and me to start hollering in pain and needing someone to  catch the baby right then. Oh, Hollywood. I think tomorrow is going to be even more fun!

Keep enjoying your stay in there, baby girl. You’ll be coming out to play before too long!

One response to ““Due”

  1. Yaaaayyyyyyyy! Take at least one belly picture. My mom took one of me in a non-maternity bikini on my due date. While it is not something to be shared with the public (!!!) I occasionally stare at it and try to remember how it felt when my body looked like that. Then I glance over at my toddler and wonder how she ever fit in there… SO GLAD YOU’RE ENJOYING THIS TIME!
