My official edd (and it's pretty accurate) is October 3. My last babe was due Sept 9, '04, and was born on Sept 5. I knew I needed the next one to be 3 years later (to recover from the birth, etc.) and now here we are, due 3 years and one month later! Obviously being so early in October it's entirely possible I'll deliver in September, too. I'm not counting on it, but would love to get to know the September mamas, too!

So, if it's alright to join you, here's a little more about me...

I'm Heather/HeatherB, mama to Gabriel, who just turned 5; Iain, who is 2.5 and will be 3 when the baby comes; and wife to J for 7.5 years. We live near Houston, TX, and will be having our second home birth!

Hi Heather. Great to have you here.

You don’t owe them an explanation, just a response.

Hey Heather! I have been gonna check in on October, but have a hard enough time keeping up here! I am due Sept 25, but if he's anything like dd, this little man will be an October baby! I have to say I'm hoping not though...its so hard to go past a due date!

Welcome!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome! Seems I just can't keep busy enough with ONE ddc and have to find more to entertain me in the wee hours of the morning!

I'm glad to see some familiar faces around here, too!!
