40 + 1

In the doctor lingo, that's how pregnant I am. Forty weeks and one day. Based on my last menstrual period. This morning, however, I realized what I had known from the get-go. My due date is tomorrow based on my ovulation date. It also corresponds quite well to the full moon and we just happen to be having a lunar eclipse today.

When I realized this I completely and utterly relaxed. I can't explain it. Maybe it's because rather than giving myself up to the medical wonks this allowed me to acknowledge nature.

We'll see what happens now.
