Anyone counting in days yet?

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 

For some reason 42 days seems WAY closer than 6 weeks!  My SIL and I were talking yesterday because her son turns ten the day before my EDD. (And my EDD was her EDD ten years ago.) 

So as of today, I'm "due" in 41 days!!!  I always go over though, so I'm counting on the extra prep time!

I'm counting the days that by this time next month I'll have a baby in my arms... My longest pregnancy was 37 weeks and 6 days.  I have full term/sized babies with no inducing, I just grow them quick I guess.

  I'm totally ready for it and anxiously waiting.thumb.gif

OMG, you're totally right, counting days seems WAY closer than counting weeks!!!  In 45 days I'll be delivering baby by C-section, and praying that it doesn't happen emergently any sooner than that :)

32 days left here...i still think it feels closer when I think about the fact that there is only 4 weekends left...hmm, it feels pretty close either way I guess!!!  I should probably go right around my EDD, based on when I went into labor with DS.  Either way though, I think we are ready.  I hope i don't go too much later, since she feels pretty big already...DS was 9lbs, 8oz, and that was big enough for me!

Spotty, I didn't realize we have the same due date! DH is kinda hoping for slightly less than 55 days because apparently gemini get along well with aquarius (dd). But cancers are supposed to be mellow and calm, I want that!

Both my boys and hubby are cancers! We are hoping for another cancer... My official dd is July 4 but I had ds1 9 days early and ds2 12 days early do that's why I'm in the June not July ddc. I'm expecting a late June babe.

Wow Shanna, surrounded by Cancers! And what are you?

DH is a pisces and I'm scorpio, which are supposed to be compatible with cancer, if you believe in that stuff.

Cool, I'm down w/ a cancer - calm and mellow is right up my alley.  I am a taurus and my husband is a leo.  She will fall right b/t us, but either gemini or cancer.  And hooray for a due date buddy ... though we know it really doesn't mean a thing! orngtongue.gif

I'm a sagitarious. Actually I'm on the cusp of Scorpio/sag but identify more more with sag. I'm not a huge sign follower but think its all really interesting!

I have 32 more days. DD is May 31,  I was always past due date, but I will be happy if he comes early.

I'll second that one!  I have 4 rooms that are half painted, and furniture with tarps and painting supplies everywhere....  DH thinks that I've gone on 'nesting overload'....  I say it's because I'm having my baby shower at my house so I NEED to prep for the party!  It's amazing how powerful the nesting instinct is- I feel like I'm in a neurotic trance when I'm wandering around from room to room trying to paint and clean....  lol

I'm down to 27 days & have had a count down in my planner for the last month because count downs are just fun. Our goat had twins 2 weeks early so I can erase her from my count down, there are 6 more days until the next clutch of eggs hatches so my count down spaces are getting emptier. 1 more week to term! We're pretty psyched & nesting is in full swing over here. I'm in this DDC because I always go over; my second baby was also due May 27th but didn't show up until June 5th. I would like to have a May baby but that's not how I cooked them. The ladies at church threw me a baby shower but since I wasn't registered anywhere they gave me a huge Amazon gift card & the UPS man has been dropping stuff off through out the week which keeps the nesting much more manageable & organized for me.

Today marks one month until I am on maternity leave- for some reason that is more enticing to track.... LOL My EDD is June 3, by LMP and June 15th by and early dating ultrasound.... I am banking on May 24th biggrinbounce.gif

I also plan to be off of work as of June 1.  But I own the business and will likely just show up when I feel like it to keep me somewhat occupied while I wait. (Otherwise every day seems like a month!) June 8 is my EDD, but I predict June 15.

My work is pretty flexible too, I could show up and they would be fine. However I doubt I'll make it to June 1.
