Do we have any idea how many moms we have in our ddc? Just curious. I'm watching the announcements and thinking mine may end up being the last one on there. Due may 28.

I have been wondering the same thing for days. So many having babies, I wondered how many are left?

I'll be here for a while, I imagine. Due May 25th... though I guess there is a chance of going 1 week early with my mom's history of birthing, but I doubt it.

I'm 'due' on the 12th, although u/s and my own dates put me at the 22nd, plus it's my first and family 'tradition' seems to be to go late so I think I'm gonna be here a while. Haven't posted much during the last few months but now it's all i want to do (probably to procrastinate from the essay i need to get finished before the little one comes!)

Still waiting here too... edd isn't until the 28th but we're hoping to get things moving by next week.

Anyone else think that they'd be holding up better than they are by now?

ME! i'm so tired these days....to the point of being super-crabby. i'm not due until the 13th so we'll see. i didn't do any natural labor induction stuff with either of my girls (born at 40+1 & 41 weeks) but i'm tempted this go-round. i might start some nipple stim early next week.

I'm due the 27th, but am scheduled for an induction on the 22nd. (due to gestational diabetes) We're going to try to get things started ourselves, sex, epo, walking -- whatever else we can come up with. I really want to try to avoid chem. induction and have as natural a birth as possible under the circumstances.

Due 5/27, but with past history (38.5 weeks, 39.5 weeks) am thinking/hoping it will be at least a little before then. Won't go much past 40 due to being diabetic.

It's getting hard to keep up the birth announcements thread! I'm sure it will only get harder as time goes on and more and more may babies are born.

My EDD is May 30 and I was thinking I would be the last announcement. Too funny. It still feels like forever away and kind of weird that we are getting all these announcements already.

I'm due the last week of May like many of you. Don't worry, there'll be a few of us left to commiserate!
