Actually... if you go by the "due date roster" sticky we have:
152 members (including those listed as late September/early November)
143 members (those with EDDs in October).
The above numbers are assuming that the pregnancy loss list was kept up to date. (So only about a third of the MDC members due in October participated in the sex prediction thread.)
For simplicity's sake, I'm going to calculate the percentage of babies already born (as of October 3rd) based on the October EDDs only.*Ok, so out of 143 babies, we've only had 14 birth announcements. This puts us at roughly 10%. (I could be totally off here since I suck at arithmetic, so correct me if I'm wrong.)
So while it seems like we've had a disproportionately high # of births, it may just be that we have a lot of lurkers
Um, so those of you who are "past date" in early October don't need to feel so bad? I'm not due until the middle of the month and I already feel like I've been left behind! (It doesn't help that totally random people seem to think anything past 37 weeks is "late"
Ok, now I'm going to go back to lurking/nesting... carry on!
*The only "late September" member to deliver so far (that I'm aware of) is aikigypsy
and she's listed on September's birth announcements but not ours, although she is on our EDD roster.
