I was wondering if we could have a PAL DD buddy so that we have someone to update the board. I feel weird asking my DDC buddy to update here since she is due before me and will most likely have an infant. Anyone else interested?

I am! I don't have a DDC buddy. I was assigned one, but she's either a lurker or miscarried. The poor girl. Either way, I've never seen her around.

Lori is my due date buddy and it is so awesome that she is a part of PAL as well!! I think this is a great idea and everyone should get involved.

Well...facebook is NOT going to be the first thing we update. We aren't even telling parents we are giving birth until after all is said and done. So, I need someone to update the boards

?? What kind of entertainment do you need during labor? I guess I have always been busy entertaining myself by screaming!

I'm not a screamer, and I always do better when I have something to distract myself from the pain. And then there's always the epidural, and after that's in...it's just waiting for a while. lol

I need entertainment to. Once the epi is in I just hang out until delivery. So having something to do is a good thing. My first we watched Mulan. It helped when the put the epi in to be distracted. Maybe we could do a post in the private place with other contact info. Or do pm's.

Honestly the only thing holding me to staying in my DDC is that I have a DDbuddy there. I like PAL tons more.

I would LOVE a ddb here at PAL. My DDC is fun but for the most part they seem to be approaching pregnancy very differently than I am, and most don't understand the concerns we have dealing with PAL. I'd love someone who is also due in January or a few weeks before/after so we can share experiences along the way!

The epidural is that great? You all have me re-thinking the epidural option!

The walking epidural is the way I'm going to go this time. I could still move my legs and felt the contractions, but it didn't hurt. It made me feel a lot more in control.

Rachel, I wouldn't mind updating for you if you wanted. I'll probably already have my baby when you go into labor, but I'll be home on maternity leave and I'm an expert at getting on the computer while nursing a newborn (spent many hours online when Athena was a newborn).

Since I hope to be at home when the baby is born, I'll probably be giving an update either when I'm in labor (if it doesn't come on too quickly) or shortly after giving birth. My family and friends thought it was crazy that I sent out an email announcing Athena's birth only a few hours after she was born, but I was wide awake and everyone else was sleeping so I got bored, lol.
