Pretty cool dates
So, when I see my Due date calendar it is pretty cool. I get out of my first trimester right at the start of October (when Marsi's birthday is). I will turn 20 weeks right around my birthday. I am pretty excited about those 2 dates.

Re: Pretty cool dates
How fun! Is there anything interesting going on around your due date?

Re: Pretty cool dates
There really isn't anything around my due date other than DH being 5 states away at a conference when I turn full term! I guess I could hope for an April fools day baby. :)

Re: Pretty cool dates
Oh no! Hopefully he or she will maybe come early for you then so your DH could be there!

Re: Pretty cool dates
Oh, he will be back when I turn 37 weeks 2 days. He will just be gone for a week right around that time. In all honesty he was a horrid help with labor once we were in the hospital with Marsi and I expect the same with every birth. I am not worried about him being there for the actual birth.

Re: Pretty cool dates
Oh well then, not so big a deal huh! Will you have someone else with you in L&D, instead of your husband?
For me personally, my DH was good (at least, he wasn't bad, he was sort of just there) in labor, and I really was desperate to have him there. When I gave birth to Ethan it was just me and him and the midwife in the hospital, because we were in Alaska and my fam couldn't be there. So even though with Kody I was back with family, I only wanted DH again.

Re: Pretty cool dates
With Marsi, I had my mom and SIL with me as well as DH. There was a couch in the delivery room that DH and SIL sat on the whole time. When it was just DH and the midwives at the birthing center, he was a major champ! I don't live close to family now so I don't think anyone will be joining us in the delivery room this next time.

Re: Pretty cool dates
Do you feel ok with that? I think for me, I would want maybe one person there with me to keep me company, but also after already having had Ethan, I felt more confident in my own abilities with Kody. I don't think I really needed anyone with me, it was more an emotional support thing. DH pretty much was just there, stayed close by me, and didn't do or say much, but that was all I wanted.

Re: Pretty cool dates
Yeah, I am fine with that. I guess I don't have another choice, so I have to be. I don't have anyone here and I feel pretty confident after Marsi's birth. I know DH will do what your DH did with Kody.

Re: Pretty cool dates
Rachel that is definitely a great sign. My birthday is April 2 so maybe your little one will come on that day!!

Re: Pretty cool dates
I wouldn't mind that birthday.

Re: Pretty cool dates
It's nice to have positive feelings towards upcoming dates. I agree, it looks like good signs for you and little one.
