Hi November Mommas!<br>
I'm soon to be one of you, so I thought I'd jump in and meet you all! I was due on 10/24...just one of the many Oct mommas that is waiting *oh so patiently* for my baby to get here. I guess I have a few hours of October left, but Finn seems to like it right where he is.<br><br>
I've been lurking in your DDC for a week or so now...Congrats to all the Nov. Mommas who have already had little ones!! Hopefullt I'll be joining you soon. Nice to meet you all!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Welcome Momma2Finn! I, too, have been lurking in the Oct. thread and quite honestly have been more of a *lurker* than participant in alot of the Nov. threads! Got a late start and I can sometimes be just too lazy to post!<br><br>
Anyway...sorry for babbling...WELCOME!<br><br>
BTW...Is Finn going to be your little one's full name? Griffin is on my name list, but I would shorten it to Finn! Just curious!

::snif:: ::sniff:: well momma2finn...I guess since you jumped over here, I'll tag along. No october baby for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> . I've been lurking here for the past week as well, reading about all the lucky mamas who got to have their babies before their due date. I was due on the 11th, but we weren't too sure, so it looks like that date wasn't correct. I could have been due as late as the 25th. So take your pick. How late am I? haha the world may never know. I'm trying to stay optimistic, really I am....

Welcome October Mamas!!!<br><br>
Hehe, I was *supposed* to be an october mama but I joined this thread because I know how comfy of a womb I have... I'm 8 days over.<br><br>
Bailey228... YOU ROCK!!!! 20 days "over"... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> good job growing that baby!!!!!!!!<br><br>
I keep telling myself I'd rather have a plump, healthy baby rather than a skinny one covered in cheese before my date but I'm definitely ready!!!!!!!!

LOL I don't think she needs to grow anymore. My family always has 10lb+ babies. I can only imagine how big she's gonna be with her being so late. I completly agree, I'd much rather have a big healthy baby than one born too early and covered with "cheese" as you described it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

At least we can still make each other laugh! Plus, 20 days makes for a great story! I would keep with that date - just think, you could go another week and tell people you were a month overdue!! (Wow, that sounds crazy even to me!)<br><br>
Don't worry momma, we'll get there. Eventually.

peacefulmommy (love the name!)<br>
Finn is the planned name...although we are undecided about whose last name he will have...mine is Lynn so Finn Lynn will probably not happen! DP isn't thrilled about Finn, but has only given silly suggestions like Esteban. I mean I like the name but this kid will be pale white with swedish/german relatives...Esteban just won't fly.<br><br>
I think Griffin is a very cool name. It achieves the Harry Potter connection I like without sounding too magical!! What are your other favorites?

Welcome October mamas! Hopefully you won't have to wait too long to meet your little babies. I on the other hand have 25 more days until my EDD, and then who knows how long. I lurk on the October & December boards just for fun, so I know whatcha mean. Good luck!

<b>peacefulmommy</b> - Griffin is our choice for a boy's name - but we don't know what we're having. We thought Finn or Griff for a nickname.<br><br>
I love it!<br><br>

Hi, November mamas and the October mamas who've switched over...<br><br>
I'm another October mama that had been occasionally lurking over here on the Nov DDC, 'just in case' since our EDD was 10/22. I'm jumping over here too, now!<br><br>
Nice to see you, momma2finn and bailey228, and nice to meet all of the Nov ladies.<br><br>
Happy Halloween!

Momma2Finn: Yeah, Esteban is a cool name, but I would definitely feel wierd using it for a fair skinned baby! Griffin Sage was my first choice, but for some reason I've still been waffling on Griffin for months. I always seem to come back to it, though, especially since I equally love Finn as a nickname. I originally came up with the name b/c of the Griffin & Sabine books...love 'em, but I like the Harry Potter-esque sound to it, too! The other names on my list are Oliver, Milo, Isaac & Thierran. Thierran is an alternate spelling of Terran, which means *earth*. I'm huge on the meanings of names, which is why I like it. What are you thinking of as a middle name?<br><br>
Sarahcecile, what's your middle name for a boy? If it helps anybody, the girl name I had picked out was going to be either Amelia Sabine or Amelia Simone. It's up for grabs! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Welcome, everyone! The more, the merrier. And take comfort in knowing that this will be the last DDC that you join- no way you guys are going to be pregnant in December!!!<br><br>
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and hearing your birth stories.
