Do we want to have due date buddies? --Buddies posted #49

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone!  I was just wondering if we wanted to do due date buddies. We did it in my last DDC and it was nice, the way we paired people up was not a first timer/first timer.  Our due date buddy then could update the group on labor and delivery, etc, if we couldn't get to the computer.  We don't have to pair up like that.  We could pair up by due date, or geographic location, etc.  I just liked having someone that I could ask questions to who had been through it before, and after I gave birth I just texted her so I she could let everyone know how we were doing.

 

Thoughts?

Sounds good to me. I was going to post but hadn't yet. I will propose that Astar and I be due date buddies as we will be at each others births

I am new here, joined today, but I would love to do this! I am still getting familiar with the website.  I just can't believe I didn't join when I was pregnant with my other two! Everyone seems so helpful!

Me too. Me too! My DDC with my DS did this, but I joined so late that I missed out on it. I'd love to have someone like that this time around!

Yay!  I'm happy to see so much interest!   How do we want to pair up (with the exception of Paineferia and astar they seem a natural to be paired together) do we want to do by due date?  Or new mom/second or more time mom?  Or something else?  I liked doing new mom/not new mom with DS because I could ask all sorts of "what is going on now" questions to someone who had been through it before.  Or we could do a combination and try to pair a new mom/not new mom with similar due dates. 

 

Let's all write our due dates and some other basic info, and then we can get an idea of the people who want due date buddies and pair up accordingly!

 

I'm Kristin

 

EDD 6/24 (but DS was a month early, so I'm expecting to be early again)

 

This is my second child

 

I'm in Pennsylvania

 

DS was a non-medicated, natural hospital birth.

 

I plan to have a non-medicated, natural hospital birth this time also (stupid Pennsylvania and it's laws pratically outlawing midwives...grrr)

I'm Elizabeth.

 

"Official" due date is 6/1/11, but (a) I tend to bake babies longer and (b) I'm t2 diabetic this go-round and ob is already asking me to consider an induction in my 39th week.  Bottom line ... I got no idea. LOL

 

This is our 3rd baby.  #1 was a traumatic hospital birth; #2 was an amazing u/c.  Playing it by ear with #3 ...

 

We're in coastal Georgia.

This sounds like fun!

 

I'm Hannah, due 6/25.  Planning for a second homebirth, DS is 3.

We're in Texas.
