The Waiting Game

Still no sign of the baby, in case you were wondering. And many people are wondering. Hardly a day goes by without a phone call from someone inquiring into the status of the baby. Every day at least one neighbor asks about me and the baby. (And living in an apartment, we have many neighbors.)

People tend to ask annoying things like "What! You're still pregnant?", "When are you going to have that baby?" or "What has the doctor said about this?" They tend to forget that the due date is an estimate, not a deadline. Since Happy Boy didn't even come until ten days after his ultrasound due date, it wouldn't be one bit surprising if this baby decided to do the same thing.

As my husband said, "So much for the chiropractor telling you that the baby was going to come early." "Early" has come and gone, and for that matter so has "on time".

All of mine have been nine days late. Seriously! When I am given a due date, I automatically add nine!
Sounds like you've got a good attitude about it.

I know that baby has to be there by now! Pictures? Please!
