The Due Date

One year ago today was my due date. I had barely had a hint of contractions -- which felt like a backache I couldn't get rid of -- but nothing major. I didn't even realize that's what it was until the next day when I was at my doctor's office.

Last year, Aug. 14 was a Sunday, and my husband and I decided to take in a movie, which we knew would probably be the last we'd see for a while. We saw "Cowboys & Aliens" while we snacked on nachos. Less than a week later, we said hello to our baby girl.
