About this commmunity:
This community is for women who have babies due in October 2009. Since babies aren't always born on schedule, this will also include women due toward the end of September 2009 and beginning of November 2009. Hopefully this will introduce people sharing the same wonderful experience at the same time and maybe even meet some new friends. All posts in this community are members only for peace of mind and safety. You will need to join to participate and see the entries.
