I was watching the Today Show this morning and they were talking about Courtney Cox's baby born this weekend. As if shocked, they reported that the baby arrived "a week before the scheduled due date". Last I checked it was called an "estimated due date" not "scheduled due date".

Laugh to keep from crying! You know what bothers me about that? It's not that the reporter (or whomever) said that.....it's that MILLIONS of future mamas HEARD that. I hope a good percentage of them had the same thought as you, but I fear that most internalized the message that babies' arrivals can be scheduled.
I know a Grandma whose two daughters are "due" w/in two or three days of each other (one in KS, one in Iowa). She is a bit worried about how she'll be with each daughter as she gives birth, but not TOO worried, b/c after all, the "due" dates are three days apart! Plenty of time to drive up!


Yeah, Lizabear, I hope you're right. Actually, I sort of hope that they had scheduled a c/s for "big baby" or other nonsense and the babe came early - vaginally - proving them wrong!! :LOL
