38 Weeks: DUE DATES?
38 Weeks! Nick was born 21 days early and I was born 10 days early. We are definitely in between these two numbers right now, so anytime, Wilbur!!
Which brings me to my next topic: due dates. I was talking with older women at my church and they asked me my due date. I told them July 13th and mentioned something about wanting Wilbur to come early. They said, "Oh well, with technology these days, due dates are just so much more accurate than in our days so he probably won't be too early".
No no no no no nooooooooo; I had to explain that I pretty much went in and told the nurse that my last period started on October 6th and boom they calculated my due date. There was no technology involved!! I have an "old fashioned" due date just like all of them had back in the day.
Then I thought about the other girls from my high school also due July 13th; they both are having babies that were unplanned and one didn't even know she was pregnant until December. I'm thinking maybe their due date might be one of those "fancy technology" due dates?
So I had a question for pregnant women out there: Was your due date made with any sort of ultra-sound or "technology" or was it an "old fashioned due date"?
