So I am actually due Nov 30 and read posts and occasionally post in the Nov DDC, but so many people are having their babies that I am losing any zen I possessed, which wasn't much to start with. MW says I can officially have the baby at home now, and I am ready for him to come. Unfortunately, DD came at 42 weeks, so who knows when this guy will come out. I thought it would be good for my sanity to be around people that are waiting too.

I don't mind. You're only a day from being due in December anyway and almost expect to go late so December DDC might be a better fit. Plus I like having people just slightly ahead of me (due Dec 5th).

Welcome, mama!
I have been a delinquent DDC member - more lurky than chatty. But all of a sudden I'm like "oh my god nobody knows what I'm going through but these ladies!" - and the more, the merrier!

Welcome runkin! I am due Dec 1st and I've been lurking in Nov, though I mostly post here. Though I am actually hoping baby will be born in Nov. I am really ready for him to be here...Anytime after next Wednesday (37 weeks) would be fine with me!

I feel the same way. MW said anytime after 36 1/2 weeks we are good to go for a homebirth. That is today. Doesn't he know he can come out now?

Haha, I feel you! I'm due Nov 26 and have been lurking in this DDC because it seems like EVERYONE is the Nov DDC is in labor or has had their babies! Meanwhile, I'm sitting around with not a single hint that my body is preparing for labor. Getting so impatient, definitely losing my zen. I'm still holding out that this will be a Nov babe, but I know how you're feeling
