Hey everyone!  I was just wondering if we wanted to do due date buddies. We did it in my last DDC and it was nice, the way we paired people up was not a first timer/first timer.  Our due date buddy then could update the group on labor and delivery, etc, if we couldn't get to the computer.  We don't have to pair up like that.  We could pair up by due date, or geographic location, etc.  I just liked having someone that I could ask questions to who had been through it before, and after I gave birth I just texted her so I she could let everyone know how we were doing.

 

Thoughts?

Me too. Me too! My DDC with my DS did this, but I joined so late that I missed out on it. I'd love to have someone like that this time around!

Yay!  I'm happy to see so much interest!   How do we want to pair up (with the exception of Paineferia and astar they seem a natural to be paired together) do we want to do by due date?  Or new mom/second or more time mom?  Or something else?  I liked doing new mom/not new mom with DS because I could ask all sorts of "what is going on now" questions to someone who had been through it before.  Or we could do a combination and try to pair a new mom/not new mom with similar due dates. 

 

Let's all write our due dates and some other basic info, and then we can get an idea of the people who want due date buddies and pair up accordingly!

 

I'm Kristin

 

EDD 6/24 (but DS was a month early, so I'm expecting to be early again)

 

This is my second child

 

I'm in Pennsylvania

 

DS was a non-medicated, natural hospital birth.

 

I plan to have a non-medicated, natural hospital birth this time also (stupid Pennsylvania and it's laws pratically outlawing midwives...grrr)

I'm Elizabeth.

 

"Official" due date is 6/1/11, but (a) I tend to bake babies longer and (b) I'm t2 diabetic this go-round and ob is already asking me to consider an induction in my 39th week.  Bottom line ... I got no idea. LOL

 

This is our 3rd baby.  #1 was a traumatic hospital birth; #2 was an amazing u/c.  Playing it by ear with #3 ...

 

We're in coastal Georgia.

Due 6/18 ish, but 1st DD came on her due date (medicated hospital birth), 2nd DD came at 40w6d (unmedicated, birth center, water birth).  I'm expecting this one to be about 41 weeks.

I'm Tracy from Chicago

my EDD is 6/26

This is my 3rd baby. 1st was a planned c-section at 35 weeks due to vasa previa (cord draped across cervix and bleeding) 2nd was a homebirth with a DEM, planning a UC with this one.

My 2nd came exactly on her due date so I don't know what to expect with this one. I am having a late feeling, though!

I'm Beth. I'm due 6/21. I went 9 days over with DS, who's nearly 3. I had an unmedicated hospital birth last time and intend to do it again, but with a midwife and doula. DH and I did Bradley birth classes last time and loved them! I'm in central IL.

I couldn't edit my other post..so here is a new one!

 

I'm Holly and I'm in Montana.

 

EDD 6/25 and I expect to go very close to this as I've had 3/4 deliveries in the 39th week.

 

This is my sixth baby/fifth pregnancy, and my third child. (I had three surrogate babies including a set of twins.)

 

All of my births have been unmedicated, vaginal hospital births, and this one will be the same.
