I was just wondering which one of us will be first to have their baby.<br><br>
I am due Dec 2 but both my boys were 3 days early so i am really hoping for then end of November - maybe the 25 would be nice.<br><br>
So i guess i am guessing my date will be Novemeber 25 (or hoping!), what about the rest of you - any hopes or estimates?

Well I am due the very end of December, around the 30th or 31st, so it won't be me. I refuse to have these babies early!! :LOL

oh me, me!! pick me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> My due date is Dec 5th by ultrasound (early @ 5wks- so fairly accurate) I have NO idea when my last period was so we have to go by that. I was 5 days before my due date with dd #1. I know there are at least 3 of us on here who are hoping for thanksgiving babies. Hopefully at least 1 if not all of us can have them. Thats like a month away!!! YIKES!!! The only thing about this pregnancy that will surprise me is going late...so thats what I bet will happen. babies, they always get the last laugh, don't they.<br><br>
Honestly I think Desiree will be first though! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I think her original due date was November anyway. Or one of our many twin mommies, if one is early Dec....but NOT Nancy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

hehe, wendy-- i'm required to keep the kid in until dec. 12th, the last day of my husband's finals! :LOL everyone thinks i'm going to drop early, the date we're all guessing is dec. 18. a guessed that a long time ago and then his grandmother died and we discovered that was her birthday! sounds like fate to me!

I think I'd vote for one of the twin mamas, since we have 4 sets of them here! Perhaps Kir? I think she's due the first out of all of them.<br><br>
Oh... and NOT me. I don't think this baby is going anywhere now. All systems are go! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Technically, I am due the end of November, but the reason I started coming to December is because I have gone late with both my babies, so I am thinking December 4th or 5th -- I already told him if he wants to be early he can, but I am not counting on it!

I'd due Dec. 15th and am forbidden to go early by mom and husband who both have finals that week. hehehe. My mom is flying home from school in Illinois after finals, but I don't know that she'll make it in time.

I hope it's me! I'm due December 8th ( I know the exact date of conception, so this date is 100% accurate)....but I tend to cook my babies fast. Dd was born at 36 weeks and Ds was born at 38weeks (and weighed 8lbs 12oz). This time around 38 weeks puts me due on Turkey Day. I'm thinking I'll go around then or shortly before Turkey Day. Let's hope so at least.

I "due" Dec 7 but I had no period for 3 months (and no dating u/s) so I really have no clue when I am really due. My last af was January 19. HAHA LOL I got a BRIGHT positive hpt on April 15 (and my other positives usually were still faint until like 6 weeks) so I was guessing I was about 6 weeks then. It kinda sucks not knowing but I figure she'll come out someday. LOL No baby has stayed in there forever. I think I will go "overdue" and am thinking mid-December.<br><br>
I'm guessing a twin mama will be first too!

My due date is 12/5 (we were charting so I'm pretty sure on this), but Jake was born right at 37 weeks - so I'm going to be ready then - which is Nov 13 - which is really really close!!!!!!

Erin, we have the same due date. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> The 15th of November is a full moon. (apparently- its the "beaver moon") I bet the first- whoever it is- will go then. Your right that does seem really close!

My due date is Dec. 6, but DS was born at 36 weeks 3 days - so I am just trying to get to 37 weeks. (for either the birthing center or homebirth - can you believe i'm still making this decision?!?). I keep thinking Nov 17 for some reason. But what do I know - I thought DS would CERTAINLY be 2 weeks late. Boy did he surprise me!

Um... "beaver moon"? :LOL What a great name for a moon that we're hoping a baby to emerge from the slang of the same name! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
What is the beaver moon anyway?

I'm glad someone else got it...I thought maybe I was just being a perv. I just looked it up on the farmers almanac to see when the November full moon was- and it said its the "beaver moon"<br><br>
Here's why: <i>Full Beaver Moon - November This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.</i><br><br>
Seriously though....somebody HAS to have a baby on the full beaver moon!! :LOL

DH gets two weeks off starting on the 17th, so I'm crossing my legs until at least that day!<br>
Although, I'm kinda hoping I don't go TOO far past that, because I wouldnt' want to end up having the baby on the last day or two of his holidays and then he ends up going back full time after only 24 hours at home with post birth me! I need pampering!
