I am due Jan 1 but *may* end up having a repeat csection the week of Christmas. So you guys will see me here and on Jan 12.
lol.... do you mean STRAGGLER?? welcome
No - like straddling the fence between December and January
Yay I'm not last now LOL Hey Jenn
LOL Jenn. You are so funny. Yes, stay here!
i am a straddler as well really!! i am due 2nd but since this is my third and my 2nd came 10 days early i could end up having a december baby
Lol I personally like the word straddler... yes, welcome! I kind of feel the same way, I'm due Dceember 3 but I've never gone the entire 40 weeks so I may end up having a late November baby, although I haven't checked out the November board yet. I'm really holding out for December because it's my fav month, what with Christmas, my anniversary is the 2nd and my daughters birthday is the 11th (although maybe I should root for November as no one in my family has a November b-day!).
Hi, Jenn! We'll let you straddle us!
hahahaha hey jenn! You're free to straddle!
Hi! I think its great to "straddle" 2 boards. Congratulations!
I thought i wouldnt make it to my due date with myfourth either but he ended up being 1 day late.
My first came 2 weeks early, so I may end up in November! ha
Ha, thanks for the invitation
I saw my ob last week and now I'm almost certain I will be a dec momma! We discussed vbacs vs repeat sections and I'm probably more likely to have another csection. He and one other doctor are the only ones at that hospital to do vbacs and if they arent on call when I get there then whoever the doc is will take me directly to the OR if I go into labor. And I know this is a bad reason to consider a section, but if I have the baby in January it will cost us $1000 more because my deductible starts over on Jan 1. Ugh. I have lots of thinking and praying to do before Dec! We'll see - seems like years away right now.

I dont think thats a bad reason. Dont they do repeats sections about 39 weeks anyway? Also some doctors wont do vbacs with inductions so if you were to go over you'd have to have a Csection anyway. I would just talk to your docs about what situations may come up so you can make a decision thats right for your family.
I was due with my last baby jan 5th and i was sure i'd have the baby before the end of the year. I was really dissapointed and pissed i didnt have him by new yr b/c we had the deductible thing and our healthcare spending account with a few hundred bucks in it. Which would have been gone if i wasn't delivering by yrs end. I ended up buying contacts online Dec 31st so we wouldnt lose that $. So having the baby in the new yr cost us about $1400 extra. That sucked. But i totally understand your situation and dont feel bad for that.
Yes Jenn! Come to where all the cool kids are....... LOL!
Of course - straddle away! Glad to have you here in December! I will have a repeat c-section too, my dr. said he does them at 39 weeks. Good luck with your pregnancy!
