It’s just an estimate

Yes today is my “EDD” or “estimated due date” and yes the baby isn’t here yet – big surprise!

I have to say it has been very interesting talking to people this week. Please love to ask a pregnant women when she is due, but when you answer “today” or any day with 2-4 days of when you are talking to them you get nearly the same reaction. Shock, surprise, and (what looks to me like) hidden concern that you are going to shoot a baby out at them or get amniotic fluid on their shoes… I fluctuate between amused and annoyed by these reactions.
