Do you have a birth buddy on your June board that will tell us when your LO arrives?! You are getting so close!
No, I kind of slacked and didn't sign up. Partly because of slacking and partly because I'm not on that board enough to really know/want a birth buddy. I figured I'd just be one of the people who posted after LO comes.
But I can do one over here if you guys want! Just as long as nobody says anything over on FB. I'm pretty sure we're not going to post anything public until he comes. (I don't want MIL driving up for the birth or anything).
Yeah - that way we can get updates on you. I can do it if you want to text me or you can pick someone else that you want to all/text/email. Its up to you. It will be fun to have a thread for you with updates.
I feel ya on keeping it off facebook. Sometimes facebook has too much info. I'm still trying to get my family to NOT make my pg their status.
Sounds good, I will text you!!!
I'll just either remind you to put in the post to not say anything on FB, or I actually might just make it so nobody can post on my profile right when I go into labor. I'll think about that/play it by ear.
Yeah, FB totally has too much info! What I can picture too, is MIL posting congrats before we even announce he's here, or something like that. You know how there's like unspoken common sense most people have on FB? Like, I wouldn't say congrats on your page since you haven't 'announced' on FB? Some people just don't have that common sense.
I've thought about turning my wall off until I announce it - because seriously, our moms and my granny ask me all the time if they can post it yet. I don't plan to make a FB announcement as my status but I do talk about it vaguely. However, I could see my cousins finding out and saying something on my wall.
And turning off your wall for the delivery is a good idea. I've found out about births by people saying CONGRATS first. Then you feel like "well - congrats what - when did it happen?!"
aww Jenn but then I can't have aNY more fun with my posts
Kristen hopefully you wait for me to be back from vacations.. the 28th !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't worry, I have to wait that long anyways. Donnie isn't home until the 26th!
Yikes! I hope that baby stays in till daddy gets home! And Magali!
When does Donnie start his job 3 hours away? or has he already? If he has are you nervous about him being so far away?
He starts possibly on June 1st, but they've already pushed back the date once and it's raining right now, so they might push it back again. Right now he's 2 1/2 hours away, so going to 3 hours away isn't going to be much different! I will hopefully just go into labor on a day he's home, or be able to call him right at the beginning! At least that's another good reason I have a midwife this time, she'll be so helpful if Donnie doesn't show up at all!
