We're all waiting for Mike D. to become a father, and nobody has thought to turn it into a competition?

My guess:

Sunday, May 18, 8:34 AM

....just to make things fair...here's some scoop.

Due Date: May 27
Right Now wife is: 3 cm dilated 85% effaced (sp?)
Some Karma? My B-day is the 12th, my moms is the 18th, for some reason I'm feeling the 19th.
8 yr USMC anniversary is the 21st

So I'm going with May 19th 6:54 pm

No cheating now... we don't want to hear it was induced.

Good luck Mike D!

Please send some advice out about the birthing experience for those of us who are expecting soon.

If it was in Chile... it would be whenever the doctor wants to, specially before weekends or holidays, because you don't want to spoil the doctors' rest time or holidays....

It's a shame that here in Chile natural birth is not the normal, but rather the minority, births are either induced, or it's just a simple cesarean, to make it easier.. The thing that bothers me the most is that unethical doctors OFFER to do a cesarean instead of a natural birth, while the operation should only to be used as an emergency procedure. The natural birth has important trigers for the baby, such as stimulation of many glands, thing that does not occur in a cesarean....

Now, rant aside, Best wishes to Mike D. and congratulations! :D

You know Skellie, I was just reading another mb discussion about this, Doctors are just now looking at links to asthma and autism relating to "birthing interventions". SO much is still unknown regarding what triggers labor that many chemical processes are not fully understood.

I am sorry it is that way for the woman and babies of Chile,
