Cloth diapers: Cute for the environment

-A A +A
By Kelly Dolejsi

I’m so close to the end, and yet there’s still nothing I can do but wait. Oh, I can pre-wash the cloth diapers and drink my uterus-strengthening tea. I can swim the world’s slowest 800 meters and blend healthy strawberry-banana smoothies. I can bump into counters. But mostly, I wait.

I feel like I’ve been waiting since way back in October when I saw two lines on a little stick instead of one.

This is not how I usually work. For example, if I can’t think of the right ending for a column, I’ll still end it. I don’t keep writing indefinitely.

Or consider a ballet combination: A dance stops when the choreography does, ideally on a particular note in the music. There’s no guessing. When I perform a variation onstage, I can predict the final movement down to the exact second.

Yet, I can’t even predict on what week my pregnancy will end.

Here’s what I do know: About 90 percent of pregnancies that run their natural course last 37-42 weeks. This gives us a  range of more than a month.
