I can't remember how far along we all were in my previous DDC when we started pairing up due date buddies... Was just thinking about it though and wondering if people are interested in having buddies in here?

mmmm... Due Date buddies sounds interesting!
I'm not really sure what it is, but sounds pretty simple.

LOL! Count me in!

I was just thinking about this! I really want to do it. I think the sooner the better so we can get to know our "buddy" better.

I think it is a great idea. I loved having a due date buddy in my last DDC. It helped when I needed to contact her to let everyone know in my DDC what was going on with me when I was admitted to the hospital before having my son.

Basically everyone is partnered up with another girl in the group. You exchange phone numbers, email, etc and get to know each other over the next few months. That way when one of you goes into labor, you can text/call your buddy and she can help keep the group updated on what's going on with you. Usually you get paired up with someone due a little ahead or behind you, that way hopefully your not in labor at the same time.

I love this idea. I joined my last ddc at 20 weeks, and I know they had already chosen theirs....so I would think some time in the next few weeks. My thought is that we'd all want to be in our second trimester, but that should only be another couple of weeks, right?

I think how it's usually done, or at least how we did it in my last ddc, we get a list going of everyone who wants to be involved and when their due dates are. If you have a preference of who your buddy is, then you can list that too. Then everyone is just "assigned" their buddy. You're not necessarily given someone who has the same due date as you, because you don't want to risk being in labor at/around the same time. So maybe in the next couple weeks, someone can get this going

Definitely!!! I think it's a great way to make friends and usually it works out well to where you both aren't delivering at the same time. If for some reason that does happen though, it's not a huge deal.

Can you request someone near you? I don't know if there's anyone in CA, but I'd like someone in CA or AZ so I could meet them in person sometime! (We have some friends in Chandler AZ that we visit once or twice a year so I could do AZ).

I definitely can't wait for ddb's. I still keep close contact with one of my DDBs.

Can use the due date list we have to check?

Also to ensure you dont end up with someone due at the same time as you (if that is avoidable) when you sign up you would put your due date as well as any preferences for your DDB

that makes it easier for whoever is organizing it, so they dont have to go look all that info up

I think we could probably start sign ups soon, i dont mind getting it going/organizing it, unless one of our hosts would prefer to do it

I also don't mind organizing it or helping out.... I can post a sign up thread for whoever is interested.

The problem with having a DDB who is due at the same time as you, is you could go into labor at the same time. This happened to me in May, we had our babies the same day So a friend became our replacement DDB and updated for both of us! It was fun
