I have to admit that I approached today with a little bit of trepidation. I am 37 weeks and 3 days pregnant. While the day is not "officially" over yet, I was a little nervous about having my baby today. I am not exactly sure I want my baby born on Friday the 13th. I know that it is probably an irrational thing to think about but all of those horror movies really have left an impression on me regarding the date. Why does this date on the calendar cause such a negative feeling? I found some interesting bits of trivia regarding Friday the 13th. I've linked the articles below:

(I got the coolest bit of trivia from this link: "This year is a special one for Friday the 13ths: There are three of them: Jan. 13, April 13 and July 13. The freaky thing? The dates fall exactly 13 weeks apart. That hasn't happened since 1984.")
