I found this to be comforting anyways, while I sit here "past due" and wait for my little one's perfect arrival date. It was a good reminder anyways!

Yes, this was a helpful reminder.  Tomorrow is my due date with my first, so on average I could still have nine days to go! Whew. 


DH and I expecting our first EDD 6/30/11!

This was one of the packet of (at least 40!?) documents my doula emailed me, about RRL and due dates and Cytotec contraindications, etc. It is a good reminder.

 

 I went into labor with #1 on my due date and had her at +1, so I admit that I'm a bit surprised to be here at EDD+2, with zero indications. Lots of painless contractions that I can feel if I touch my belly, but no discomfort at all. Phooey on doulas and OBs and commenters saying for months that I'd probably go early!

 

Hangin' in there...
