The Waiting Game

What’s the point of due dates, really? Only five percent of babies are born on their due date, and approximately 70 percent come “late,” especially first-borns. My due date, it came and went, and no baby yet.


For Posterity

I do not like having my picture taken. There is a part of me that wonders if I’ll regret not having some evidence of my transformation over the past nine months, but that part hasn’t been convincing enough for me to bare the belly. It did, however, talk me into doing a belly cast — and I’m so glad it did.


Close to You

I am ready to issue this baby an eviction notice.
