This thread is to sign up for our due date club SPOTLIGHT thread!

When it is your week, I'll start the new threads on Mondays and Thursdays, with a few standard questions to get you going. DDC members can ask questions of the Spotlight member to keep the thread going.

Hopefully enough users will sign up to keep this going up until our due date month. We can also double up if we have a great number of participants.

Please just reply to this post if you are interested, and I will add you to the list. If there is a week you aren't able to do or a date that you prefer, just list it in your response below.

I'll update this post with the dated schedule that Leigh made for us (thanks mama! ) when I get on my computer that will cut and paste. Everyone's spotlight dates will be listed right here and we'll shoot for a week from Monday to start to give everyone some time to sign up. This should be a fun way to get to know each other better!

I'm in - but anything after September 1st would be less than ideal, as that's when work gets especially busy for me.

Still not entirely sure I understand what you are saying will happen with this or how it works/what it's for, but sign me up. If it's something that requires me to do a lot of typing here, I can't be available the last week of July because my sis is visiting then, or next week because we have another out-of-state visitor then. Other than that, I'm not particular. My EDD (the day I hit the 40 week mark, in other words) is January 13th. Not sure if that matters to this process.

Posted the schedule starting with next week. Still plenty of days left if anyone else wants to play. Don't worry. It's not hard. Think of it as on online interview by your DDC friends.

I just wanted to take time to thank you for doing all of this, Susan. I know it has be hard to find time to breathe, let alone run the spotlights with three kids to look after while you're growing another one.

So, thanks. Your hard work is very much appreciated.

Thanks for doing this!
