There’s that horrible word again that I’ve become so accustomed to using! I’m about to blow my cover and admit when my due date is. It’s today! I am 40 weeks pregnant today! I haven’t been sharing the actual date because I don’t want people harassing me once today passes, but I swam my entire 1/2 mile this morning with a grin and wanted to share my small triumph. How many women can say they swam 1/2 mile on their due date? Yeah, there are the crazies- like the woman who ran a marathon- but for normal folks, I’m pretty tickled that I fit into this category! I had tons of energy and even challenged my husband to a 100 yd race, which I won (because he stopped at 50 yds, misunderstanding me).
My sister took a picture of me in the locker room right after our swim. As I go through waves of impatience and waves of being glad to have one last hour/day/night/fill-in-the-blank before Baby comes, the picture plainly shows that today I am enjoying myself. I get to tell anyone who asks, I am due today!
