Longest Day

Way back in the earlier weeks of the pregnancy, when we got a firm due date and pregnancy math was still incomprehensible, I updated my Google calendar with the corresponding pregnancy weeks from then until the 40th week.  This morning, I opened up the calendar to see this, which, quite frankly, startled me:

It seems like forever ago, and just yesterday, that I was peeing on ovulation predictor kits in my work bathroom.  It all still seems pretty miraculous that all of this has happened, and in a matter of days I can count on both hands, we’ll be parents.

In other news, yes, I feel as uncomfortable as I look.  Although, I suppose here at 39w5d, that is to be expected.  It’s also the longest day of the year, and not just for me, apparently.  More people have piped up about dates they’re predicting – so far, we have today (summer solstice), the 22nd, 25th, 26th (full moon – lots of people on this one), and 27th.  My only guess is that it will be an even-numbered day.  Weird.

  1. People were predicting a full moon fo rmy delivery date too – one of the nurses told me that the moon’s gravitational pull on the earth’s waters worked for our uteruses (uteri?) too, and that they were always busier on the full moon. It sounds old wives tale-ish to me, but there you have it.

  2. I think the 27th again– I think you will go into labor on the 26th to have the baby Sunday morning– early. My water broke on a full moon!

  3. Hi,

    I’ve been following both of your blogs for a while & was wondering if I could email you two, since my partner & I are going through some similar things and I’d love to get some perspective. ( couldn’t find an email contact on the site).


  4. A LOT of people give birth on our right around a full moon. I work on the maternity floor in a hospital and we get crazy busy around that time.

  5. Just checking in to see if there is any news???
