Birth Buddies LAST CHANCE!!!

Your birth buddy is someone you can call, text, email (method is between you and your buddy) when you are in labor, have had your baby, etc. Thus, your buddy can keep us all updated on here.

Remember, in order to participate, you must have been a member here at PO for a minimum of 3 months, and you must have at least 300 posts, 100 of which must be here on THIS board. If you still need to up your post count, you still have some time, so don't worry. Sign-ups will be open for at least a week or two.

To sign up, please post below with your name, time zone, preferred method of communication (if any), and when you think you will deliver. For most, this will be your EDD, but some may know they will have a c/s 2 weeks early, or have had a couple children and know they always deliver late. I will try to pair people whose due dates are a bit spread out so that you aren't trying to contact each other while your both in labor, lol. If you have any concerns or special requests please feel free to PM me.

And another note, I'm going to have my laptop with me in the hospital since they provide us with a wireless connection, so I really won't need someone to update for me. However, since I have a 45 min drive TO the hospital, I will have my cell phone and can text someone to let them know that I'm on my way in and they can let you guys know that baby girl will be arriving soon. I probably won't pull out the laptop till after the baby is born and I'm settled in my room, and probably not till after hubby leaves the hospital. I don't think I'd be very comfortable trying to use the computer while uncomfy from labor lol. We're not supposed to use cell phones in the hospital, so an update on my way there as to how I'm feeling etc will be what you girls will get till after all is said and done lol. So as long as someone doesn't mind not being able to provide full fledged updates from me, then I'm definately in!

Sorry for rambling just thought I'd explain Biggrin
