i've noticed that other DDCs have (or have had) due date buddies.

 

anyone interested in such a thing or think we need to do this?  or should we just announce the arrival of our babes in our own time?

 

here's a list of interested mamas:

 

SallyNichole - may 2nd

elonwy - may 28th

becca_howell - may 12th

basically, it's someone that you notify when you go into labor, and that individual will post on the forums here for you to let everyone else know what's up, that we have someone to keep in mind that day, etc - and soon, someone to congratulate.  So if you don't have the energy/time/urge to get on the boards and let people know, someone else can do it for you.  At least, that's what I've seen elsewhere.

the idea is to match a person due at the beginning of the month with someone due at the end, so sally (may 2nd) and elonwy (may 28th), you two would actually be a good match.  i guess you could PM each other.  let me know if you decide to be buddies.  i can start a list in the original post of who are matched together.  we could also wait and see if there's anymore interest.  and then match people up.

I'm fine with that but we might want to wait and see how many people are interested before we pair up.
