The funny thing about a due date in pregnancy is that it is more of a fluid guesstimate than an actual finality. As a perpetual student and a Type A Communicator, my life has been built around due dates and deadlines. I have made a career of getting the right project/product to the client or teacher on time. Now that I am the one waiting for the “project”, the due date is slipping.
As you may have guessed today is little Tortuga’s due date. Yes for the last nine months or so, Todd and I have been looking at this date as the day our baby will arrive, yet here I sit in our apartment writing a blog post. I guess this will be my first lesson in motherhood, patience.
The good news is there have been signs of progress. My “pre-labor” contractions are coming more frequently and getting stronger. It is only 7:30am, the day is still young and we could have a little one by midnight. We will be sure to keep everyone posted.
