how we survived: going past the due date

I thought FOR SURE the combination blizzard/full moon that was predicted for Jan. 23rd would bring on labor. My parents even came up from DC that Thursday, just so that they didn't get stranded in the storm and miss her birth. Maybe the added pressure of having family here just waiting for something to happen made her NOT want to come out that much more, but by that Monday, I told my parents just to go back home and we'd call if anything happened. Spoiler: nothing did.
