My cousin had her baby yesterday (he showed up exactly on her due date) and it made me realize that my list of friends and family who are further along than me is quickly dwindling. A former co-worker also had her baby within the last week, and another friend of mine had her twins a couple of weeks ago.
I think I'm officially down to one friend who's technically due before me (and there's one other mama in one of my Facebook groups who's due before me, but we're more acquaintances than anything else and she isn't actually on my friends list). Considering that when I got pregnant, I had about 12 miscellaneous friends and family members who were ahead of me, that's kind of terrifying.
I'm really curious to know who'll end up going first in our DDC. I know we have a few mommies with a history of early labor and at least a couple scheduled c-sections for medical reasons, plus a few straddling August/September.
Haven't given it much thought, but am the most pregnant woman I know personally know now - Everyone else is in the 3-5 month range.
Hmmm...Who will go first here? I'd love to volunteer, but I am not exactly the best candidate. Someone here had a c-section scheduled in the last week of August (can't remember who now), so maybe it will be her? Then again, maybe not - plenty of you are due in the beginning of Sept, so someone is bound to go a couple of weeks early at least. I'm really looking forward to not having to stalk other DDCs to see the cute baby pics!
I'm anxious to see who goes first as well! We're getting down to the wire ladies! Eeeeek! I have this weird feeling that I won't make it to my due date but I won't be super early either....maybe a week early....but we shall see
My official guess is Skye10 since she's due in August and that's the logical answer. But I know from experience that it really could be anyone at this point!
Not me though. I've decided that she's just staying in there until her due date. We took bets at my baby shower this weekend and my mom's guess is August 11th based on (in her words) "How your body looks and how uncomfortable you are."
Are you kidding me, woman?! Granted, she has a point about me being uncomfortable and my body looking as though it's going to give up at any moment. Ah well. I'm still saying she's going to stay put.
My cousins wife is due 5 weeks before me. And another friend is due 6 weeks after me. No one else I know of is pregnant. Most of my friends have had kids already. Since I'm 40 and this is our first kid... Everyone has had them already!
I have had 2 friends that had their babies (one in June and one last week!). I have a coworker who's due mid-august. I'm 4 weeks after her, and then another good coworker of mine is due 4 weeks after me! What sometimes freaks me out is that when I go to the JM website and look for our board, we just get lower and lower on the list and more months are being added on top of us!
I'd be one of the last in the DDC. But I can't wait until the babies start coming - only when they well baked and ready though
Your due date the 30th too? Though I have to admit, while my due date is at the end of the month, chances I will deliver at 38/39 weeks is high via a c-section. Mostly due to high blood pressure and high risk pregnancy (will be 41 by then)
