Birth buddies?

I don't see a sticky about this so I thought I would ask...have you all assigned/picked birth buddies? I would love to get in on that if you have, and if you haven't...when are you doing it, so I can make sure I get assigned to someone? I had a birth buddy for DD2 and it was great. We are still in contact with eachother even though it was 2 1/2 years ago. I think birth buddies are great! If you have already assigned, is it too late to pair me with someone? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

We haven't done Birth Buddies yet. I am not exactly sure when most boards do that. Is it in the second trimester or third?

we haven't done this yet, but it's a great idea.

Last time my sister was on my BB (our sons are 35 hrs apart) and we were each other's birth buddies.
My sister's BFF is on this BB so I assume she'll be my birth buddy (eh Allie? what do you say??).

Fo' shiz Biggrin I'd love to be your BB and since Jord will be at my birth she won't have time to update so you'll have to :razz:

I'm all for having a birth buddy. Smile And yeah, I figured that we would really plan for birth buddies once we hit the third trimester.

Since we're talking timing of things, does anyone else think it's weird that they haven't assigned us board hosts, yet??

nah, it took forever to get hosts for my April '08 board and I think we were in our 3rd tri by the time we had hosts for my March '11 board.

Back in '02 and '04, we got them right away after we hit tri 2...

I'm pretty sure I saw them assigned to July...

This is my first board on this site, can someone explain Birth Buddies?

You can sign up to be a birth buddy and then you and your birth buddy exchange phone numbers and/or e-mail addresses and when either of you go into labor you let your birth buddy know and update them as much as you want and they will come to the board and update everyone else as to what's going on Smile

My mom (Gardenbug) was my birth buddy for the last 3, though she was also birth buddies with someone else, I think, on at least one occasion. A bit of a bonus since I didn't have to worry about her going into labour!
