Weary & Burdened Ep. 023: Due Date


Full disclosure, I’ve birthed four children and never made it to a single due date. All of them arrived early. Some more substantially than the others but never once did I mark a date with a big red circle and then get to that date.

You hear of women bemoaning the babies who’ve over extended their stay. Mom’s threatening eviction. Pleading for the sausage feet and kankles to subside.

I wasn’t one of those moms because each of my babes peaced early. David, exceedingly so.

I can imagine the due date as a type of milestone for expectant mothers. In a way it held a lot of hope for our family after David’s birth as it was the marker for which premature babies approach bluebird status.

Like I said, I’ve never reached a due date.
