i was considering mixing it with the One thread but thought that would be too difficult if I hand over the reigns to others...

i do think it would be a fun thing to do though!

Well, I reckon I could keep it organized in this thread unless someone else wants to...

We'll let people sign up, then maybe start next Monday, or do ya'll think we should give it two weeks? If most people sign up, maybe do two a week, in order of due dates (earliest due dates go first)? Sound good?

My pregnancy brain hit as soon as I got the BFP at 9dpo - seriously, it's like my brain is absolute mush. So no, not too early at all!

A spotlight thread starts with a post asking questions... followed by the person who has the spotlight on them answering them

pretty normal questions... what you do for hobbies... how old are you... how many kids do you have... etc.

just to get to know each other better.

*facepalm* Oops, forgot to explain.

For two people a week, there will be a thread "Spotlight On *username*"... where basically everyone interviews you Just about your birth plans, family, interests, all kinds of silly things. Look in one of the Spotlight threads in other DDC's to get an idea... I think all DDC's have them.

Here's an example: http://www.mothering.com/discussions....php?t=1181070
