So….today’s my due date. I’m trying really hard (albeit, unsuccessfully) to remain patient and relaxed and zen-like. Frankly, I didn’t think I would go 40 weeks. People keep reminding me that a majority of first babies are born late and that due dates are more like ETA’s (only 4% are born on their due date). Which reminds me of “Pirate’s of the Caribbean.”
Due dates are like the pirate’s code…they’re more of what you’d call “guidelines.”
Maybe this comparison, and thoughts of the Caribbean, will help me chill out a little since one of the relaxation techniques we learned at our Lamaze class is to picture yourself in your relaxing, “happy” place. One of mine would be on the beach and chilling in a hammock with John, which is one thing we did on our honeymoon in Mexico.
So that’s what I’m doing this Friday. Looking at beach-y pictures from our honeymoon and thinking of hammocks, sand between my toes, and fruity drinks. Maybe I was on to something when I made myself a faux-jito last night…
