Blog A Day 'Til Baby (BADTB) Post 10: Due Date

Due Date, released in 2010 is a dark bromance/cross-country adventure that pairs the likes of Robert Downey, Jr as father-to-be Peter Highman who through a series of misfortunes and coincidence has to drive cross country with Zach Galifianakis, as aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay in order to make it home for his child's birth.

Oh, I'm sorry, were you not looking for a review of the movie Due Date? I was prepared to do a scene-by-scene breakdown of the movie for you today. I figured it would keep me busy, keep you informed and distract me from the fact that today is my actual due date and it doesn't look like this baby is arriving.

I have to say I had high hopes. I know that it is super unusual to actually drop out a kid on your due date, but at 3am last night I was thinking it might happen. It would have been perfect, we could have gotten to the hospital without any traffic, the sitter would be coming in the morning for the Ladies, I could have been waiting out this heat wave in the "comfort" of an ac'd hospital room and not have to worry about how fat my feet were getting and I could finally stop wearing the same black shirt.

Oh, well. Looks like I will be shoving my body into the maternity dress my best friend wore to my wedding six years ago and heading out to see my cousin get married tomorrow. I will say I am grateful for the opportunity to see my family so if the baby isn't going to show up on its due date, I am hopeful it can at least wait until Saturday!

  1. Sorry the due date came and went without news. Enjoy the wedding and dance A LOT - that should help start labor!
