no, seriously

One thing that's fun about being this pregnant is that when you go places, friendly strangers ask you when you're due, and when you say "Yesterday," they think you're making a joke about how you feel really pregnant, so there's an awkward pause after they laugh when they realize, no, really, you were due yesterday.

This is the only day I can do that, and so far it's pretty awesome.

That is pretty fantastic. You should take advantage of this once-in-a-pregnancy opportunity and mix it up. Wal-mart might be a good place to start... lots of well-meaning, bargain-hunting strangers ready to rub your belly for good luck (yours and theirs). I hope your baby girl emerges soon. "Babies are born on their birthdays... not when doctors decide." :)

I'm sorry. I hope your baby comes soon, even though I've lost the bet.

i can't tell people that yet, but i can respond with a polite, "no," when they ask me if it's twins.

Ha! I like that. I may employ it next time around if there is one. I'll send good hippie vibes your way for a smooth and gentle birth whenever she decides the conditions outside seem appealing. :)
