I think Charlize had a really good idea in setting up DDC Buddies, so since I'm chilling on the couch and bored, I'm going to start the Roll Call!

Everybody who's still with us, please chime in and say a hello! Whether you're a regular poster or a lurker, please post! There are 208 people on the Due Dates thread -- wondering how many of us are still checking in?
And if you want to participate in the DDC Buddies, say the word. (The Buddies will get paired off with a soon-to-be-determined methodology so that when anybody goes into labor or has their little one and can't get on here to post, they just need to make a call to their bud who will make a post on their behalf.)

Everybody who's with us please say HI!

Do you want a DDC Buddy?:


And because there's clearly something wrong with me, I will track all of this in a spreadsheet. I'm such a nerd!!!

Spiralshell -- Mama to David Nathaniel, born October 2009. And so you see I have come to doubt all that I once held as true. I stand alone without belief, the only truth I know is you.

You would use your buddy if you wanted to report to everybody in the DDC that you're in labor or the baby has arrived but you're not able to get online right away to post it yourself. You would PM each other to exchange contact info. Just an option to get the news out

For the record, another reason to do the buddy thing would be that if we haven't all seen a post from somebody in a few days and we're getting worried about you, then someone can give a call or send a text and just check in and make sure you're OK
