I think <b>Charlize</b> had a really good idea in setting up DDC Buddies, so since I'm chilling on the couch and bored, I'm going to start the Roll Call! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Everybody who's still with us, please chime in and say a hello! Whether you're a regular poster or a lurker, please post! There are 208 people on the Due Dates thread -- wondering how many of us are still checking in?<br>
And if you want to participate in the DDC Buddies, say the word. (The Buddies will get paired off with a soon-to-be-determined methodology so that when anybody goes into labor or has their little one and can't get on here to post, they just need to make a call to their bud who will make a post on their behalf.)<br><br>
Everybody who's with us please say HI! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br><b><span style="font-size:large;">Your username:<br>
Your estimated Due Date:<br>
Do you want a DDC Buddy?:</span></b><br><br>
And because there's clearly something wrong with me, I will track all of this <a href="http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=tYUlzdYQ7xuhZQBJFTzj2lg&output=html" target="_blank">in a spreadsheet.</a> I'm such a nerd!!!

Do you want a DDC Buddy?: Sure, but I will most likely be able to post on here myself since I'm having a Homebirth. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I'd love to be someone else's buddy though too!

You would use your buddy if you wanted to report to everybody in the DDC that you're in labor or the baby has arrived but you're not able to get online right away to post it yourself. You would PM each other to exchange contact info. Just an option to get the news out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Buddy?: No thanks. I probably would forget to contact her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Great idea though!
