I wasn't late!

Last night I was talking to my mom about a common pregnancy wives tale: some people say that when your mom delivered you in respect to your due date is often a predictor of when you will deliver your baby. I told her how I was mentally prepared to go pretty late after Urban Cowbaby's due date because I was 12 days late based on what she's told me all my life. And she laughed. Apparently, my due date was determined by the doctor and she didn't argue but she knew he was wrong. It's complicated so I won't go into detail but, basically, my mom knows the exact date of my conception and, based strictly on that date, I was born exactly on time - like, on the day she knew was my real due date! (SIGH) So, now I am mentally preparing to deliver closer to my due date, just in case that old wives tale has some merit.

PS My office has an actual pool going for when Urban Cowbaby decides to enter the world! How hilarious is that?! It'll be fun to see who wins the pot. I did buy 2 squares so even I have a chance to win a little extra cash. LOL If you want in, let me know and I'll put you in touch with the organizer. LOL
