No grads yet?
I'm surprised there haven't been any yet! Glad we didn't have anyone go too early, though. I'm in the green zone now for my homebirth but don't think anything will happen for another couple weeks. At least, I hope not! (My mom will be out here in a couple weeks to help take care of my other kids after the birth since DH won't get much time off.)
My SIL and a friend's wife were both due right around January 6th with me, but the friend's wife had their baby this morning (at home!) and SIL is in the hospital right now! Last time I was pregnant I had two cousins due within 2 weeks of me, and the both had their babies early and I was pregnant for 42 weeks...so their babies were more than a month old when DD came.
I'm at 38+4 right now, so we are in the clear for our homebirth too. I am hoping that baby will be born on Saturday (just seems like a good day ) but I fully realize it could be another 3 weeks or more...and I can't really imagine having to sleep with this giant belly for that much longer, lol.
I've ranged from a little over 38 weeks with DD2 to 41.5 weeks with DS2, so I have a wide range there. It still looks like Christmas threw up all over my family room (and not to mention that the master bedroom is looking a little Hoarders-ish from stashing all the homeless objects/outgrown clothes/stuff for Goodwill in there) so I hope it's another couple weeks!
Me too! I was hoping for the end of Dec because my parents have had at least one grandchild born every year since the birth of my oldest in 2003. We broke the streak yesterday, but they're getting at least two in 2013 as things stand right now
I was kind of hoping for a December baby too, since we had all of our Christmas decorations up and the house looked so cozy and festive :) We took everything down yesterday though, so now it's just back to normal old life! It will still be warm and cozy in the house, though, so we'll be okay no matter when baby comes out!
