Yay for the new subforum! I get overwelmed by the super-long monthly threads. I'm due with my first ( a boy) on July 31, so I could very well be an August mom. But I'd rather hang out with the July moms so I can get an idea of what's ahead. I just switched for seeing an OB to a midwife and I'm so happy! I'll be delivering at a hospital, planning on using hypnobirthing.
Just stumbled in here too!
Due July 31 with our 2nd (a girl).
Ds was early, and our midwife seems to think this one will be too. So I'm haning out withe the Juuly Mamas. I don't particluarly think she's gonna come ealry, but we'll just see!
hope everyone finds their way over here. i definitely agree with this system for due date club posting... it's also fun to read everyone's due date again
I am due with baby number 2 on July 3. My first was 2 weeks late but in retrospect we weren't 100% sure of date of conception as i had just gone off of the pill at that time after 6 years of being on it. I never had a period before I was pregnant and really have no idea when I ovulated or conceived. They calculate my due date at that time based on my last period. Anyway....don't really know if I was "overdue" or not. Hoping not to go to far over this time as my parents will be visiting for about 1 week in the beginning of July and really want them around to help with dd when I am in hospital....we'll see. Birth is not something that can safely be planned, in my opinion. So I will be patient to wait until the baby decides he/she is ready.
Planning a midwife and good friend assisted hospital birth with Bradley method..
Hi all! I'm due on July 18. This one is a girl! Her name is Lila Kerry. Our son is 2 1/2, and likes talking about "Wiwa."
I'm planning on a hospital delivery with a midwife. I didn't get an epidural with ds, but had plenty of other medical interventions due to preeclampsia. I'm hoping for a quieter, less eventful birth with this one.
DS #2 is due July 24th, though they moved my date up a few days at my u/s appt. We didn't stick around to see the dr. since we had our first mw appt. later that day. Planning a home birth and scared of the pain!! I welcome any coping ideas and stories of getting through it. Ds #1 was assisted by an epidural, vacuum suction and episiotomy. Hence the home birth for #2.
