secondimpression, I was just thinking this morning that we needed to start a birth announcements thread! I hadn't seen this yet!

When I had Brynn, we had a birth announcement thread with some other info; do you mind if I share the questions that we had on ours, and mamas can fill in as they want to/are able?

Username:
Baby's Name:
Due Date:
Baby's Actual Birthday:
Weight/Length:
Labor/delivery info you'd like to share:
How are you doing?
How is (are) older sibling(s) doing?
Link to birth story:
Link to photos:

Ever-evolving mama to my beautiful Brynn, and my little dimple-face Noah .

I thought of doing this, but the problem is that our DDC is HUGE! Compared to March and May, we dwarf them! When a post gets that long, they start to slow down (and I can't imagine what it's like for someone on a dial up connection). Also definitely did NOT want to badger our 2 new mamas while they're bonding with their early arrivals

This is a sample of what I was going to do as we get more births (and types of births). Let's say we have a mama named MarySue who has a baby Bob who VBACed on her due date:

April 1 (40w0d): MarySue : Bob 8 lbs 4 ozs :

It's a lot of the same of what you suggest (and I added in the weeks gestation since you mentioned due date ), just condensed down to fit in less space. I am open to suggestions though

On a different thread of thought, I saw in a DDC a few months back someone started an "Our Stats" thread that had information like total number of members in the DDC, how many mamas were pregnant with which number baby, numbers of types of births, etc. It was pretty neat but would be quite an undertaking. Maybe someone here (you?) who is a statistics guru would like to try that, it would be cool to be able to see all that information without overwhelming an announcements thread.

I guess I like the idea of what Amy posted...those who want to post all that info can and those who don't want to can post the basics...this way it's all on one thread and you don't have to bounce back and forth to find out the details. I LOVE to share about my baby and birth so woudn't feel badgered at all...I'd just do it with my sleeping baby in arms!

But I just noticed the top where it just lists the basics in that one post...I like that for quick glances too.

He is happy to nurse while I type and DH takes him when he's sleepy It still takes a lot of time, but it's so wonderful to read everyone's announcements and it's kind of hard to do anything besides play on the computer while he's nursing since my Moby wrap hasn't gotten here yet

Secondimpression, I am IMPRESSED! I can't keep up and I haven't even had my baby yet. Thank you for doing this.

(and, w/ my first, the wrap helped me enormously on the computer! Two free hands! I have a lot of writing to do since I'm a grad student so I tried many things...)
