Default Grandchild Expected

My first grandchild (ultrasound says female) via my oldest DD's partner is due 7/29. She is currently 3 cm dilated. At a shower last Sat. everyone had to sign a calendar for date due, weight and length. I deliberately chose 7/14 knowing it is early. I will be out of my office and unavailable ALL day for a training seminar in downtown Chicago. I do NOT have a cell. Also, Tue nite my oldest DD informed me that her favorite folk singer (since she was 15, now nearly 30) is giving a concert eve of 7/14.

Who is betting for/against 7/14?

I have to agree with Cheryl C - the 21st - it is my daughter's birthday - but I hope she will be born at 7:14 a.m. (7lbs 12 14 oz - 20 inches). A sweet bundle of joy, no matter when she pops out.

My first grandchild (A boy) is due July 11!! 7/11 does sound pretty neat. The Dr. said yesterday she might not make it to her next appt. (Next Thurs.) I am not to fly out till Wed. My son in law is worried she will have it July 6th, and he will be at the hospital and I will have no way from the airport. They live 2 hours from Portland. I live on the East coast. Talk about a bummer. I want to be there, but I know how it is when you are READY to have that baby!!! Wish us all luck! I hope he is early, I am spending 3 weeks there, and I will hold him hopefully for 3 weeks and not let him go!!!

I will guess 7/23 (hubby's birthday) but it doesn't sound like she'll make it that long! If it happens that day, we'll celebrate away from home since we're going to San Francisco for a quick weekend for his bday celebration...

Congrats on the first grandchild, Grandma!

I would go with 7/31 for a 1st baby, but 3cm already?? I'll bet on 7/12. Hope this baby isn't like the one on the news last week, almost 14 lbs! Ouch!!!!

We just found out we're going to be grandparents again. Hoping for a girl this time. As Papa said, nothing can compare.

Congratulations to all of you!
