I thought I did this already, but I guess not.

EDD: August 18, 2010
Name: Amanda
Age: 29
Family (partner, other children, etc): DH, son (2.5)
Gender preferences/inklings: It's a girl.
Names you like: Still working on that.
Birth Plans/Preferences: hospital birth #2
Anything else you'd like to share: DS came at 36 weeks. I am hoping this one can at least make it to term. My due date holds no significance for me. Due to an early baby, I now block out an entire month as a possibility.

Can you change my date from August 13th to August 24th, please? Ultrasound agreed with my negative/positive test dates that it should be the 24th. Thank you!
