I've been writing on pregnancy and the first year of my baby's life with BlogHer and Huggies.
When I found out I was pregnant, as soon as that test turned positive - I immediately ran to my computer and tried to figure out when I was due. Isn't that the first thing you did? (Besides maybe tell your husband or best friend or mom?) (Or after getting over the shock that you were indeed having a baby?!?!?)
I love Babycenter.com. I used their on-line calculator to figure out when our lives would be changing exactly. And then I immediately began my countdown. It was fun to know exactly when the baby would come (well - roughly). With Harper- I was all over exactly how pregnant I was at all times. I could tell you the week and day at any moment. I have to say with Hollis - it took me a little longer. I was so busy with Harper - I sometimes had to think a little.
I loved taking weekly pictures of my belly and watching it grow. I love looking back at those pictures. Every week felt like such an accomplishment. I also loved that Baby Center sent weekly emails that told me what size the baby was and what was developing then. It was nice to have a visual.
How accurate was your due date? With Harper - she was born at almost 41 weeks. I had a c-section a week early with Hollis. So I think their due dates were probably about right. They were both big girls so I would hate to think if we went another week or two. I might have earned a world record.
I love that you can look up so much on-line these days. You can calculate your due date, you could calculate when you are ovulating, you could even use the chinese gender chart to see if you might be having a boy or girl. ha! (Did you try that? I think it's silly but it was right for both my girls.).
Did you use a calculator? How accurate was it?
