Hi Mamas!

Since our most awesome DDC will be closing in a few weeks - yike! - some of us have been discussing having our own thread over in the Life With a Babe forum (under Ages and Stages).

I'll be starting the thread over there soon, but wanted to post here first to raise awareness and invite everyone to join us!

We thought it would be fun to have a first post where we'd all be listed, so that we can keep track of a few details about each other.

If you'd like to be included when i start that thread, post these details about yourself in this thread, in BOLD please :

- username
- Name or nickname of your baby, or if you'd rather leave this out, i could put the boy/girl icon in it's place
- DOB of your April DDC baby

We can always add other things later, but for now, each entry would look something like this:

Peace+Hope, Charlie, 3/25

Any other ideas are welcome! I could add other identifiers or facts, if they aren't TOO long. for instance, i might put that i had Pre-E and Charlie was early, but so many of us have basic info in our signiatures, i thought i would just start simply.

Cecilia's Mama, Cecilia, 4/6/10

Great idea P+H!!

edit: If you're doing other identifiers, Cecilia was born at 38 weeks after my blood pressure went skyrocketing through the roof, but we avoided a C-section!

rhiOrion 07-22-2010 02:38 PM

RhiOrion, L, 4/8/10.

If you do other identifiers: First time mom, Medical induction due to Cholestasis of Pregnancy, WOHM.

I think if she does other identifiers you should definitely get "Winner of the silver birthing stool"

And eventually, she can update somebody's to say they won the bedazzled birth stool of Darwin or whatever it's called

Have you noticed that our silver and golden birth stool winners both have their religion in their sig line? They were obviously in cohorts with God in order to win the stools.

Also, both of us have either resided in the past or currently reside in the Great State of Texas.

Also, Amanda is actually an elephant with a longer gestational period of 15 months (ie. A CHEATER!), and therefore should have been disqualified because elephants don't use birth stools.

Total loser who did not even come CLOSE to winning the golden birth stool and will also NOT be winning the Bedazzled Birth Stool of Winning at Darwin, either.

Oh, and other identifiers: HBAC! Shout it off the rooftops!

Peace+Hope 07-30-2010 09:45 AM

here's what i've got so far. i hope anyone else who wants to will "sign up"! don't worry if you think you won't be around much, you can decide that later.

i'm working with the formatting to include longer bits of info, i may center each person or something - there's really no reason not to include whatever you guys want! please let me know if you'd like me to add/remove/edit anything.

i'll add an intro and some fun icons, and we'll have a gorgeous opening post
