I'm due on Dec. 6, but with twins, there's a chance I'll go early. If you end up giving birth in November or January, will you stay in this DDC or will you pop in on the other clubs as well, just in case?

My EDD is Dec 1st (based on LMP) or Dec 4th (based on O). I've read that first babies tend to be late, but I was my mom's first and I was 2 weeks early. Who knows. I'm participating in Dec DDC cause I'm hoping to make it to Dec. I've been lurking a little in November.

My EDD has been changed 3 times: Nov. 17th, Nov. 30th, Dec. 3rd ... I'm sticking with the middle one but I'll probably go late like the first 3 times. I'm posting both here and Nov.

Like BarefootGirl... My due date based on O is 12/30, and it's 1/4 based on LMP. First babies tend to come late, but I was my mom's first & came 2 weeks early, so I'm hanging out in this DDC mostly, and lurking in January, too.

For tax & insurance reasons, I'd prefer to go in December

I haven't posted in January, but I'll make an introduction in there eventually. My due date is 12/22 if you subtract 3 months and add a week (as my mw does) or 12/20 if you go by 40 weeks. Either way, 42 weeks will be in January.

I have NEVER gone early, though I guess there's a first time for everything.
My first two were planned inductions, born at 40w1d and 41w. My third came on her own at 40w1d. 4th was a last minute induction at 41w6d, born passed midnight, so 42w!

I could be 41w3d on 1/1/11. But I'd rather not be.

I was due in June with dd, she was born in May. Due in Dec with ds, he was born in Nov. Does this mean since I'm due in Jan I'll have a Dec baby!?

I'm lurking in January as well. My EDD is 12/31 so I am quite literally straddling due date clubs.

I'm straddling November and December (11/30 by LMP, 12/3 by O and early u/s), but my feeling is that DDC are mostly about creating community and the actual due date doesn't matter much. But I picked Dec because I liked the idea of being one of the earlier ones to give birth, rather than potentially feeling impatience and anxiety that everyone else gets to hold their little ones before me.
I lurk in November just to see what folks a week or two ahead of me are up to, but I've decided to stick with December as my 'home'.

Me, actual EDD 11/28 by US 11/29 by wheel-o-dates used by midwives.

DS went a week over and I ended up regretting not visiting both oct. and nov. last time.

I think for some reason this one will go into Dec. and I am taking a guess on Dec. 3rd. All 3 of my other kids were born on Fridays. And I'll take a guess of sometime in the morning, as in daytime before noon, because my last 2 were 9:50 AM and 8:59 AM. (My oldest was 9:50 PM!)

lovin DH since 1/04, SAHM to 3 boys 10/04, 11/08, 11/10 one girlie (1/07), and one 13 wk (10/13) just your average :ha ng multigenerational living family!!

My EDD is 12/26...I gave birth at 42 weeks with my first and 41 weeks with my second. So technically the way I'm trending, I should give birth on my EDD! But in all reality I'm expecting to go a bit late as I always do, landing my in January most likely. But we'll see...I haven't really peeked in on them yet, and I'll always consider you ladies MY DDC!

I lurk here, but am in the January DDC. I am due Dec 27, but my "early" baby was 40w4d and I REALLY hate being the very last one to pop.

my EDD is dec 2nd but i don't think i have the energy to keep up with two DDC's and plus, i am ADAMANT! (lol) abt making it to or near my EDD b/c we were trying for a saggitarius. (lol again, picturing myself sitting with crossed legs until the scorp/sag cusp)

my first was due apr 24th and was born on the 18th, so i suppose it's possible i'll be a touch early with this one but again - two DDC's? if i go a bit early something tells me you guys will understand. ;o)

I'm lurking here. My edd is 1/1/11 and I've gone late with everyone except the twins who were 1 week early. BUT, I thought I had an early m/c before this cycle. Then when my BFP showed up this time I wasn't entirely convinced I'd m/c which would actually put me due early December. I'm going to a CNM today since here we have to show proof of pregnancy to get a birth certificate when you homebirth. I think for peace of mind I'm going to see if she'll do an u/s to check my dates. Shouldn't be too hard for them to tell if I'm 8 weeks versus 12/13 weeks. So hopefully after this afternoon I'll know if I need to switch DDCs. Even if I am only 8 weeks I could go early and end up in December so I'll probably straddle either way.

FF estimates my EDD as 12/31/10, but dating u/s says 1/1/11. So I'm definitely a straddler, but hadn't checked in with the January DDC yet. Probably will soon. With DS my water broke on the evening of my due date, but he wasn't born for another 4 days!

My due date is 12/31 so totally straddling DDCs. We'll see what happens.

my due date is either 12/27 or 12/30, so either way very very late December...but my first 2 were early (12 days and 10 days) so I have a feeling I'll have baby in December.

I might lurk in January, too, but probably I'll stay put here assuming I'll be early or at least near my due date

My due date is 12/5 so I could easily give birth in November but I haven't really thought of going to other due date clubs.

Due 12/6 and I have a feeling I'm very likely to sneak into the end of November. But I really haven't thought about hanging out at both DD groups.

My EDD is 12/31 but I seem to always go late so I'm betting January is much more likely. I went ahead and did an intro both here and January, just in case. LOL

EDD was moved up to 12/3 (from 12/14) at our last appt... the MW said that I "could definitely have a nursing infant by Thanksgiving." Um, wow.

We're due Dec10, but with twins, November is a distinct possibility. So I've been lurking on both, lol.

I'm straddling as well. I say I'm due in January, "professional" says December.

Could go either way, really.

First pregnancy I was only 3 days off on when I said the baby would arrive, which was way off from the (well, I curse them anyhow) wheel.

I am straddling both, even though I have a due date of 1/10. I have a feeling - and not like the feeling I had the first time when everyone told me first time mother are always late and me thinking they were wrong, I think something might happen that might make me need to deliver early. Just a bad hunch I guess

I'm the keeper of the roll call thread, so am I the bouncer? You girls head over to roll call and post your info and I'll add you. Though I haven't checked it tonight, maybe you have already. Or maybe my pregnant brain already added you both to the list and I just don't remember doing so
