~*~ Labor Buddies ~*~

Labor Buddies have been assigned! You should have received a PM with the contact info for your Labor Buddy. Make sure and establish contact early in case I made any typos in the information!

I tried to put early due dates with later due dates, but obviously babies are going to come when they come, so we just have to hope and pray labor buddies don't happen to go into labor at the same time!

Here's the list:

Erin986 ~ NicoleMC ~ AckMac (we had an odd number )
Amber1010 ~ Mamablee
kym66_33 ~ Liz M
BlueJelly ~ nina_erdie
FaeMommy ~ Mamabear315
Fauxdomesticity ~ Rose426
Chris917 ~ Patiently_Waitin

************************************************** ******

I meant to start this when we all hit the 2nd trimester. Good think Beth reminded me! (Seriously - will I have any brain left after I have these babies???)

For those who don't know, one thing our DDC's around here usually do is assign Labor Buddies. We pair two girls up and they exchange contact info so they can keep each other (and in turn - the rest of us) informed when one of them goes into labor or has any important information to share, but isn't able to get online and share it. For example, if I was paired up with NicoleMc and I had to take an unexpected trip to L&D, I could contact her through whatever method we decided was best, and she could post updates for me.

Keep in mind that signing up will require you to provide personal contact information to me, and I will share that information with the person chosen to be your labor buddy. If you want to sign up, but there is someone you aren't comfortable having as your buddy, or someone in here you are already in contact with outside of TMP, let me know. I'll do my best to accommodate.

If you would like to sign up, please respond to this thread with the answers to the questions below. Also, please PM me your cell phone number, e-mail address, and/or Facebook name depending on what form of communication you're willing to do. Thanks!

1. What forms of communication are you comfortable with (texting, email, facebook, anything else?)
2. What time zone are you in?

I'll leave this open for a few days to give everyone a chance to sign up. Thanks!
