Pros of Being Pregnant and Overdue

Yes, I know my due date isn't for another 4 weeks, but Princess was 2 weeks overdue and Little Man was 1 week late.  I'm not exactly holding out hope that this one will be early or even on time.

As any pregnant woman will tell you, the last few weeks are the hardest and take the longest, especially when your due date comes and goes without any sign of a baby to reward you for 9 months of nausea, fatigue, discomfort, lack of sleep, etc.

Since I will more than likely be joining the overdue club again this time, I thought I'd make a list of the pros of being overdue to cheer me up once I pass my due date.

1. The looks on people's faces are hilarious when they ask you when your due date is, and you nonchalantly say "9 days ago."  Most are imagining your water breaking right there in front of them and having to deliver the baby themselves.  YOU know this isn't going to happen, but go ahead and have a little fun with them by faking a contraction or something like that.  You deserve it.   

2. A little more time to get ready for the baby.  Unless you're already done with all the preparations.  Then that packed hospital bag and perfect nursery will seem to be mocking you every day.  Okay, this may not be a pro.  Never mind.

3. You can finally let your true feelings show when someone thinks they're being cute by asking every time they see you, "Haven't you had that baby yet?"  You're overdue, go ahead and give them that snarky reply you've had composed in your head for the last 2 or 3 weeks.

4.  No waiting in line!  Nobody wants you to go into labor while waiting in a long line at Target to return that 3rd diaper pail you got for your baby shower.  See Pro #1. 

5.  Ummmmmmmmmm.........................

Okay, this is getting hard.  Frankly, being overdue is, well, lousy.  I give up.

Do you have anything I can add to the list?
