EDIT:<br><br>
Please sign up on the following thread:<br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions...4#post15382034" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...4#post15382034</a><br><br>
Thanks to <span>2sweetboysmom</span> for organizing for us!<br><br><br><br><br>
It may be a little early, and I'm not sure if anyone wants to do this, but I've seen in other DDC's where mama's sign up to have due date buddies (due a couple weeks apart) to exchange phone numbers, e-mail, etc. This way we can just text or e-mail one person to update our Due Date Club if we go into labor or have our baby/babies. What do y'all think? Anyone want to organize/know how to organize?

I love the idea, but I am not sure anyone would want to be my buddy, since I am a surrogate and having a c/section. If someone wants to be my buddy I am totally down with that though!<br><br>
If someone tells me how to coordinate I would do it.. But I kinda suck at this kinda thing without instruction <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

That doesn't make your news any less exciting than anyone else's. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Sounds like fun. I am alright with organizing things, and don't mind doing it if no one else wants to.

Could you, if you don't mind? I don't mind doing it, but I'm TERRIBLE when it comes to being organized!!

Of course someone will want to be your buddy! We'll want to know how everything went, how you and babies are doing, etc. Being a surrogate and having a c/section doesn't make your pregnancy/delivery any less exciting. We'll definitely want updates!

If it gets organized in time, I'd love to participate! I'll be birthing no later than the week of June 7 (they don't want me going past 37 weeks), and then there will be updates to be given for a little while on my condition and Fiona's. (Yes, I know I haven't updated y'all in a while, I will soon!)<br><br>
We've set up a twitter account for Fiona's birth and first few months, but I'm not sure which of us (me or dh) will be up to updating it, so we might have his support person doing it. I'll post that or give it to my buddy.

I'd love to be in, but I am worried that I will have limited access to the internet around the time of my or my buddies birth due to moving and living in a rural area. It took the phone company 4 weeks to hook up our phone and internet at the rental house!! So do buddies have similar due dates or far apart ones? It would be hard to be a good buddy if both are freshly post-partum, no? Or do I have this all screwed up in my brain?! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I think this is a great idea! But I don't think I'll join in because I'm pretty sure I won't have time to update <i>anybody</i> when I go into labour. And there's also times when I don't go online for days so I might not get my buddy's email for a while!
