Hello everyone! I just found this DDC and am excited about it! MDC is awesome!
To introduce myself.. I am 24, married to the man of my dreams, pregnant with my first and due on Christmas day! We've decided not to find out the sex, so we're looking forward to our little surprise.

Lately I am feeling like I have forever! My due date was moved up two weeks because the baby is big, so they think it'll come early. But I feel like this baby's not comming any time soon. I've only had two or three false contractions, I am lactating a little, but I feel like I have forever to wait! I'm having some aches and pains that are really normal, but even my midwife is surprised! I have almost zero swelling, and although the baby is big my belly is not sticking out very far. So, I guess I'm just feeling like I still have tons of time left! A friend was due the 26th of Dec and had her baby a month ago, and reading all the posts about all the babies being born is exciting, but I just feel like I still have forever!
Is this baby ever going to come!? I'm ready to meet him/her!!

Welcome Kristie! Congrats on your upcoming holiday arrival! We have all been playing the... "When will baby get here?!?!" game too, but the real answer is... who knows? They like to surprise us I think!

I'm glad you're having a good healthy pregnancy and hope you have fun here while you wait for baby to arrive!

Welcome, Kristie! I agree, this is one of the better (if not the best) sites.

Congrats on your pg, Kristi, & welcome to the group! I'm Shannon, mom to Tyler (12), Jordan (4) & Logan (14 mo.) & we're expecting our little surprise soon. The EDD is 12/5 but I think the baby will be later than that.

Happy pregnancy!

I was pregnant with my first when I was 23 and felt GREAT through the entire pregnancy, except for a little siatica... Enjoy your last few weeks of quiet and being able to be alone!

Welcome, Kristie! You will love it here
Sounds like you've a nice life started up there Enjoy the last weeks of your first pregnancy...it's so special to still be the two of you, but awaiting your precious little one! There's nothing like it.
Is the Christmas due date the moved-up date or your original date?
