It's on my calendar which means it has to be true!
When you first find out you're pregnant you are given a date of when you can expect to deliver. This provided "due date" seems especially far away at first... then you starting counting down the weeks, which makes everything go by pretty quickly. Then you get to the larger digit weeks 34... 35... 36... and things seem to slow down. I'm 37 weeks pregnant, yesterday. Which means I've been waiting for a long time to meet this little girl practicing gymnastic skills inside of me:)
I keep hearing all of these stories of people delivering at 37 or 38 weeks and begin to get a little jealous. (NOTE: I realize I'm very blessed to have a healthy growing baby, and trust me I keep in mind when I complain about walking, sleeping or being plain uncomfortable).
Throughout the time, I keep this provided "due date" in mind knowing she will be here no later than the provided date. Now brace yourself, here is the bad part, some people go past the due date!!!!! I can't image going past September 1, 2010 my doctor provided "due date." This should be set in stone. I've done my part, I've been a good mom, I didn't eat that sushi I wanted and now you tell this could go on longer -- NOT FAIR:(
I guess this is what I get for being overly optimistic that she would arrive before my due date (which could still happen) and overly naive for thinking the "due date" would be the last possible date she would arrive!
This is bananas, provided "due date" is bogus!
All the best,
