Anybody else feel that little pang because our due date month is over? I know we still have a few babies left to watch for and celebrate but nevertheless, I feel like we spent all this time anticipating July, and now it's over.

Happy to have baby here of course, but also, a little sad that the anticipation is over. Especially since I don't know if I'll ever be in a DDC again...

It's been a fun ride ladies!!

So glad that there are some of us left still expecting because I love the joy of those birth announcements. Keep 'em coming Mamas! We're still with you, watching and waiting for your babes.

I am sad too. I found out I was pregnant on November 1 of last year, and while the weeks seemed to drag, I can't believe Samuel is already 16 days old and it's August!
And the weather here is cool and it's like fall is already right around the corner.

My DH doesn't want any more babies, but I can't help but dream of being pregnant again... *sigh*

I'm right there with you! Meridith 4 weeks old in 45 minutes (it's 11:45 my time right now...) and will be a month in just a few days. sigh.

SOoo glad shes here, but it does seem a tad bitter sweet too.

I guess the next question is: What do we do from here. The July 08 DDC wont be up forever so... do we want to find another board? Or try a thread in LWAB? I can't bare the thought of not keeping tabs on all these beautiful babies that I waited for So, what next?

Ya'll are making me sad! And I still have until Dec to have this baby!
But this isn't our last. I would be crying everyday if this were our last.

I'm so jealous of you ladies that you already have your gems!

Good luck with your babes!!!!
