That's my due date too! Though honestly, I am just telling people "late August/early September"... 


Moo.

Funny - I keep getting mixed up too. I have a pregnancy app on my phone I keep needing to consult. I am due Sept 7 and the app says I am 33 weeks, 5 days today. 

  However, this baby seems like she can't wait to stretch out so I'm thinking I will go earlier...

My due date was done by early u/s (when there is a +/- of 3 days) so I tell people Sept 4- Sept 11.  So, 34 weeks this week.

SAME!  I think I get confused on purpose since I want him to get here sooner rather than later :)

If I use a generic due date calculator I am due Aug 28, but I know when I ovulated/conceived so my actually dd is Sept 6th. That's what I am going with, b/c with my previous pg's I went over my dd and that is no fun. Hoping this way I will be on time or early as far as dates go. We'll see.

I'm actually a little nervous about the due date I have... in all my prior pregnancies I've carried "late".  There are really strict no-vbac-past-41-weeks rules around here and I've always tried to build some wiggle room into my due date so I didn't get steamroller-ed.  But this time, with the u/s dating, I don't have that wiggle room.

I'm due Sept 6 by LMP, I have no idea how close I might be since I didn't actually go into labor with DS.  Since it's a VBAC though I plan to start some natural inducing methods probably around 40 weeks.  I'm seeing a chiropractor regularly, which might help, and a friend did reflexology, which worked within 12 hours, so I might try that, and then all the other fun stuff too.  I don't think my midwives use Pitocin or any , they'll try everything else first and have a very high success rate without it.  I've started to freak out a little at how quickly it's coming though.  In 3 weeks she'll be considered full term, it's no longer pre-term labor, they won't even try to stop it, and I'm not ready!!  So she could be here anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks.  Right now I'd have a ton of pretty things to put in her hair, but she has no where to sleep, since the cradle is still in storage, her clothes aren't washed, her room isn't set up, my hospital bag isn't packed, there's stuff I still need to pick up.  AAAAAHHH!!

I hear ya- I finally lugged clothes from the attic myself- the car seat is waiting to be re-assembled, co-sleeper in attic- I think my husband feels he'll just pull it all together at 'the last minute" while im having nightmares the baby arrives and we have no installed car seat!!

CRAP I need to get the carseat and wash the cover, plus I think I saw the baby bathtub up in our garage storage shelves, that'll need to be brought in and cleaned.  Then the swing and rocking chair are both in storage with the cradle.  At least I went shopping today and picked up a bunch of essentials.  I managed to find a girly crib skirt so I just need some girly bumper pads.  Yes I know you're not supposed to use them but I like them and she'll be in the cradle for the first few months anyways so the crib is more a glorified change table until then and with DS he never really did sleep in his crib a whole lot, or the cradle for that matter, he ended up with us, so the crib just makes the nursery look pretty!  Still need to get going on that hospital bag and washing clothes.
