I'm due around the end of July like the 29th. Well that's based on my last "gift" that was 3 days late and only lasted a day and a half. So I might actually be due a whole month earlier! Which would mean I'm due on the exact same day I was with my twin girls! And I mean not that I would know unless it was on your blog, but I didn't know you were a doula either! Anyway I'll let you know when I'm due after I go see the midwife on Wednesday, hopefully she'll be able to estimate, based on if she can hear the heartbeat.
