Feel free to "steal" the idea!  My kids fricking love it -- even though they're way too little to get it.  LOL!
I think "Pi Day" (3.14) would be an awesome birthday, so I hope your hubs is right!   We always make and eat pie (savory for dinner and sweet for desert!) on that date because we are dorks. 
I am so sorry you are feeling defeated.  On the bright side, I think you are right that this has the potential to help you lose the weight faster on the other side, just because your metabolism is probably faster due to working out regularly.   I also am thinking about something you've been saying recently re: having more contractions/actual cramping earlier than usual.  I know you have prodromal for a long time before you give birth normally, and I know you always start...
I have also done this a few times lately even though I don't generally feel congested.  So weird!
I don't remember that thread!  I wonder if I responded to it.   I'm feeling almost more in the dark this time than I ever have before, though.  With my daughter, EDD was 11/20 and I thought she'd come 12/2.  Um, she came on 11/11 so I was WAY WAY off (and it made me feel like she was almost a month early!).  Because she was my first though I just went on empirical evidence (average gestation for a first timer being 41+1, I believe, and my mom having  gone late with...
