Just for fun I want to figure out the average gestation for our December DDC. Please let me know how long your pregnancy was and what number baby this was for you.

I've been pregnant for like the last 6 years...Oh, you mean specifically this pregnancy..

I was charting and came up with the due date of 12/19. So, Derek was born right on his due date. And he is baby #4

Mindie, wife to Mark, not-so-crunchy mom to Dylan (4/04); Devon (6/06); Dorothy (9/07); Derek (12/19/09); Daniel (12/18/10); Newbie D (2/22/12)
