Here it is - the official sign up thread! I need your due date and would appreciate it if you'd mention if you have a history of preterm labour/other complications that might mean you are busy looking after you and yours before February rolls around.


Here are the Spotlight Assignments! I will start the threads each week - if I'm going to be unavailable I will contact someone else to start them.

If there is a problem with your assignment, please let me know ASAP, preferable via PM.

I'm due Feb 22 with #3.
My first pregnancy was surprise twins that ended with an emergency c-section at 30 weeks due to pre-e. They spent 6 weeks in the NICU before coming home and are now fat and happy 15 month old toddlers with no developmental delays due to their prematurity.

This time OB is optimistic I'll go full term with no problems and I'm cleared for a VBAC

My due date is 2/21-2/25ish, but will have a scheduled c-section at 39 weeks. My 1st was delivered at 32 weeks, but my 2nd went full term to 39 weeks. Hoping for another full term baby!

My due date is February 17th. I was right on time with my first birth but I'm guessing I may go over a little with this one.

I'm due the 23rd, no complications. My first came at 38 weeks, I have a feeling it will be closer to "on time" with this one.

I'm due Feb 3rd or 4th, it's our second baby - I went over about 8-9 days w/DS but that's average for 1st timers, so I have no idea w/this one.

I feel like I'll go over and would be pretty shocked if the baby came in Jan. We'll be ready for it, but I expect baby in Feb.

I'm due Feb. 11. This is our second baby. Our first was 2 weeks late and was induced out. I'm really hoping that won't happen again.

Count me in, of course. I'm due Feb 18th with #3. My first was born at 27 weeks. And after weeks of bed rest my second was born at a very late 33 weeks. I plan on sticking around this time if I can... But Feb/March are very busy with birthdays in our neck of the woods so I'd be busy anyway.

I'm due February 10th with baby #2. DS is almost 3 and was born at 37 1/2 weeks, although I was induced because my water was trickling out. Hoping this baby will come right on time!

I'm due on my own birthday, February 8th, with our 3rd child.

Both of my labors and deliveries were uncomplicated. My DD was 9 days after her EDD and my DS was born on his due date.

Im due between Feb 2nd-Feb9th, Ill know more certain when I go to the first appointment sometime next month. My first came on her due date and the second was 2 days late. I am going to be moving though sometime between now and the baby coming from Japan back to the states. Ill have more certain time frame for that sometime in August but they say its going to be either October or November. DH's command wants to get us out when Im in the second trimester so I have the energy to move and Im not big so Im not uncomfortable on the plane.

I can't figure out my due date until I go to the dr. because I put in my LMP but i know it's wrong since I ovulated on cd 18 (not 14 like they use in the calculation)...so does that mean my due date just moves four days later or is it a complicated mathematical equation I cannot figure out on my own? LOL

According to websites it says: feb 10, 2010 based on lmp (as i said which is not going to be perfectly accurate)

I'm due Feb 15-18, we'll set the date officially when I see the midwife and the end of July... Technically it's the 15th, but my cycles are longer, so I'm aiming more for the 18th...

I've had 2 at 39w and 1 at 42, so I really don't know if I'll be on time, LOL...

Holly, most website will let you enter your conception date instead of LMP to get a due date. Here's the one I used: http://www.amazingpregnancy.com/duedate/

Me! I'm on pg #7 and according to a site I found that let me calculate my EDD using LMP and #of days in cycle (I'm a 45 day cycle) I'm due Feb 21st. (I'll see if I can get a link to that site for anyone who has a longer cycle, but will only let you go to 45 days.)

Histories- #1 & 3 were 41+wks w/inductions, #2 & 4 were 38wks, #5 was early spontaneous water broke @ 34wks and #6 I was on meds for GD and was induced at 39+wks because they don't let you go past 39 on it. I'm hoping to stay off meds and go on my own whenever lo is ready- trying to go as intervention free as possible. But will be in Feb!

Here's the link- this one goes up to a 44 day cycle.

Nice! With this one, I'm doe on Feb. 20th, with a 33 day cycle, which is more realistic...

I already have a feb. 21st baby who will be 12 years old when the baby arrives! What a birthday present!
