With DS, we had DDC buddies, so that when we went into labor there was someone who could update the group rather than coming onto MDC to do it yourself (or asking your DP to do it). We were each paired up, someone with a due date in the beginning of the month would be paired with someone at the end of the month, and a FTM would be paired with a repeat mama. And I believe we tried to keep pairs in the same geographical area.
I know some of us exchanged email addresses and some of us exchanged phone numbers so we could keep in touch. Is there any interest in DDC buddies?
