I was pregnant, and 10 days over due, with my third child during the summer heat wave of August 2008. Until then, I thought that it was only your first baby that came a bit "over due", but it just goes to show that those babies come when they are ready and not one minute sooner. I was ready though, and getting fairly irritated, wondering if my baby would ever be born. My midwife picked up on my irritation one day and suggested I come over to her house to spend the day together. I packed up my two daughters, then 5 and 1, and away we went.
