September 2017 Moms

Announcements!

Re: Announcements!

  • @sugargirl1019 it also depends on whether you'd rather answer dumb questions about why you know you'll be induced already (I feel you say sept, but baby will come in august) or whether you'd rather have people think you're further along than you are (why are you small? Is the baby here yet (in July)? Etc. I think it just comes down to personal preference and neither is right or wrong. As long as you stay on this bmb ;)

  • @Sugargirl1019 I will also be giving birth in August, but for the sake of keeping it simple, I just say September.  I did tell my boss that the plan is to devlier at 39 weeks, but that I'll have more information as we approach August and to wait on any decisions until then.

  • @sugargirl1019 I'll probably be induced early again too but I'm keeping my original due date for when people ask. It's completely normal to give birth any time between 37-42 weeks and you could avoid those annoying "you're STILL pregnant" comments if people think you have longer to go than you really do.

  • @Sugargirl1019 I think that's a good idea! I don't think the technical difference really matters in your situation since that's when you'll be having the baby, I think it would just be easier for everyone else that way!

    @Sugargirl1019 I agree with others... either is fine, it won't be a huge difference. ETA- Also, in my experience people paid zero attention to what the announcement said and continually ask me when I'm due anyway.

  • I should have told my family I'm due in October, ha! The "have you had the baby yet" when I'm only 37 weeks gets annoying.

    @Sugargirl1019 I think I would still put September because people wouldn't be confused as to how far along you are and start asking if the baby is here super early.
    ETA: Pretty much what everyone else said  ;)

    See and I think the opposite, I don't think people are going to go that far and equate how far you are with due date, everyone still asks when I'm due anyway too! I don't think most people equate the actual size of the baby and stuff with the due date. Maybe just tell people that baby will be arriving in August? Yeah technically you're due in sept but you pretty much know baby will be coming mid August.. it's all kind of confusing lol

  • @Sugargirl1019 I love the bluebonnets! Honestly, I might just remove the date, but that's because I'm terrible with photo editing software and removing the date seems easier.

    @Sugargirl1019  I feel your pain. My EDD is Aug 31st, so I'll probably say Sep too. We've told pretty much everyone close and co-workers, but still waiting to make it "Facebook official."

  • @sugargirl1019 our pic is a pic of the 4 scrapbooks I've made since we got married with "Scrapbook #1", "Scrapbook #2", "Scrapbook #3", "Scrapbook #4" labels. Then I have a "Scrapbook #5" with an arrow pointing over to a onesie and baby shoes and another label saying "September 2017"

    (actually they're the baby shoes of my brother who was stillborn over 20 years ago that my mom kept for 'just him' - everything else they had for him was used by my living brother who was born later. When I had my loss in the summer, she gave them to me).

    We're going to send it out in an email to closer friends and family (we have an email list that we email every now and then updating them on our overseas lives), but we'll wait for facebook a little longer than that. DH wants to wait until the beginning of April to do facebook stuff, and I'm thinking if we wait until then, we might as well wait until the end of April when we can see if it's a boy or girl...it's not like we have any check between now and then to make sure things are still going ok, so that's really the next benchmark of 'safety' if that makes sense....either way, you'll see it on facebook ;)
