Today is Bingo’s due date. As you might have gathered based on the fact that I’m posting, Bingo was not born today and I am not in labor. That’s okay: based on the fact that only 5% or so of babies are born on their due dates, and a very small percentage of first babies are born before their due dates, we weren’t really expecting Bingo to be born today.
The rest of the world, however, seems to think that Bingo is now running late for an appointment. Sea’s mother called her (at work!) this morning, her coworkers have been jumping every time she receives a text, and more than one person has texted me asking how today is going. An old friend even texted with the message, “_____ tells me that today is your due date! OMG I hope everything goes well!”
Sorry, everybody, that’s not how it works. Like us, you’ll just have to wait. Hopefully Bingo will be worth it?
(Also, let’s see if I can maintain this relaxed attitude if I’m still pregnant in a week!)
