OK I've drawn names, trying to keep the Canadians, the Americans and the Europeans in separate groups so that if you need to use postage/the phone, it won't be so expensive! I hope this turns out to be a good time for all!

As new people find us, if they want to join, I'd be happy to try to pair people up, just post or PM me!

Here are my pairs! Could we get this put up as a sticky?

Raeinparis and arlecchina

Joyful Mama and Bluey

mommy2twoboys and simple life

motherwren and elmh23

heartsandhandsdoula and jpmomma2004

mamaglee and Jude Rose

yonit and mammamoon

timneh_mom and poep

lindsayjean and phillychiquita

polkadotjonas and heabrook

adensmommy and sophmama

sehbub and illinoismommy

mooliette and Maricopa Mom

anabellee and MCKMN

lanielayne and e123vg

p1gg1e and juniemoon

7kiddosmom and veganmomma

Intuition and Jilly

Ryleigh's mama and lilstar

mom2mimi and mama2ashlynn

ella enchanted and Azza

MCKMN and Indysmom

dooney and modernist



I'd suggest getting in touch with your buddy by PM, and at least exchanging email addresses. Hope this turns out to be enjoyable to everyone! If anyone can't do this or finds their buddy just not able to be online much and you want to switch or not do it, please let me know.

Ooh... I'm sorry Kate and Maricopa mom... I'll put your names down on paper and keep drawing... looks like you are both in the states though so I'll wait and see how many other responses I get...

what is involved in being a buddy? I've been offline (travelling, etc) for a month and a half and didn't see the first thread.

If its not too onerous, I'm in Canada and I"ll join.

Jill , mom to Andrew (09/04), Aaron(01/07), and Emma (11/09)

I just thought it would be fun to pair up with someone for the rest of our pregnancies. What you do after that, is up to you! If some pairs want to exchange gifts, funny cards... or even just keep in touch by email, it's really up to you. Later, as we start giving birth, we can email our buddy who can update the board about our progress.

So, it can be a little involvement, or a lot! We have a Canadian member without a buddy, want to be hers?

I just updated our buddy list. I've assigned everyone so far (that I know of), I even got the Canadians together

Please let me know if you need me to change anything or would like to be added! So far, my buddy and I have been emailing each other and that's been fun!
