I'll sign up too! I'm not sure if I'll need someone to update for me since we'll be at home and I can just grab the laptop, but in case of emergency and going to the hospital...and of course I would love to update for someone else. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
I'm due sometime around 4/24 according to the midwife. 4/22 according to an early ultrasound. DD was born a full week early, so we'll see what happens!

<div style="font-style:italic;">sounds good to me at least <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
How far from the birth center do you live? Im on the airbase and sometimes (with traffic) it can take up to 25mins to get there, my labor with DS was pretty short-im scrared of a 'car delivery' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"></div>

<div style="font-style:italic;">I'm near the air base; Irvington/Harrison area. My plan is to labor at home as long as I can, and only go to TMC when it's absolutely necessary, but that's going to take some guessing. I have no idea how I'll labor, so I'll be relying on my sister, who is acting as my doula, to help me decide when it's really time to go.</div>

I'm afraid of a car delivery too. I lived on base with dd and got to the birth center trying not to push! They had time to fill the tub (cause i just can't get comfy and the only place i'm moving was the tub!) and i got in and pushed. watch out for the speed bumps....seriously both of you tell your drivers explicitely that those speed bumps should be taken literally at half a mile an hour. i do live about half an hour away now as well.<br><br>
cece's mom~ are you delivering WITH the midwives at tmc? cause if your just going to go with an OB instead I *think* from what i've heard tmc isn't going to be the greatest. however if your trying to stick with the mw then of course that's the only option.<br><br>
i am due April 3. ds was 11 days over due, dd was exactly on time. boys usually take longer but so do firsts....i'm 85% positive that the first week of april is go time.<br><br>
would either of you ladies want to do something together? i've never seen someone else in labor and am kinda curious. i still need to find someone to watch my kids but i also want someone to take lots of pictures and videos of this birth. i never can get any!

I'm in!<br><br>
I'm due April 17 but I seem to get later and later with each one. The last one was two weeks late, so I'm thinking closer to May 1.

Danielle, I have no choice but to go with an OB. I have diabetes and hypertension; I risked out of a midwife birth. My OB's cool, though, and is on board with my natural, drug-free birth. I'm still disappointed I can't have a birth center or a home birth, but I will make the best of what I have. My sister is my doula and she will advocate pretty hard for me!

I just wanted to add that I am planning a second HBAC. I am kind of scared about this one b/c I had bad posterior labor/birth last time and the pain was awful. I am concerned it will happen again but I am trying not to focus on it.

Due April 1st, but was two weeks late with my first one. I hope this one comes in time though! Second boy for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Sure, I'll be in.<br><br>
I'm Liz, due April 23. Now beginning to think it would be just fine if this babe came when my son came (37 weeks!), but have a sneaking suspicion that this one is going to make me wait.

I'm in. Due April 30th, hoping to go on my due date. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> My pregnancies have been getting progressively shorter and shorter.. the last one was only 3 days overdue. This will be baby number four. Second Hypnobabies homebirth.<br><br>
I don't really anticipate needing someone to do a lot of updating (though you never know!), but I'd love to help someone out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm in. I'm either due April 19th or 22nd, not sure which date my midwife is going with? This is #2 for me. DD was an induced hospital birth and this time we're doing a home waterbirth.
