This part was surprisingly accurate. We had a due date date night to celebrate and I started cramping a few hours after we went to sleep. I caught my baby in the tub at the birth center surrounded by the best birth team ever.

post #30 of 43
I will give it a shot, I am very unsure about these questions, as this is my first child


EDD: Nov. 4th

Possible names: we are keeping this secret for now.
Actual name:

Any extra predictions you'd like to make: I will surprise myself.
post #31 of 43
I'll give this a shot.
Oookay, I got totally schooled on this one. I am not quitting my day job to become a psychic.

EDD: Nov. 18th
I predict the baby will be born: December 2nd (full moon, reputed to bring babies forth from the womb)
Actual birth date: Nov 19th

I predict my labor will last: I have no idea...until the baby is born? Ummm, 4 hours of active labor with good positioning, 24 hours with malpositioning?
It actually lasted: First contraction noted about 2:30 or 3 p.m., active labor at about 5 p.m., baby born at about 8 p.m., so I guess I was sorta close on this one. He had awesome positioning, LOA all the way.

We won't see on an ultrasound.
I predict the baby will be a: girl
The baby is a: boy.

I predict the baby's weight and length will be: 8 1/2lb, 20in
Actual weight and length: 9 lbs, 1 oz, 21.5" long (I attribute extra half pound to leftover Halloween candy, followed by DH's birthday cake, followed by my birthday cake). Great. Now from Halloween to Thanksgiving, it will be one non-stop sweets and festivities time in our house. I will have to watch it once I stop breastfeeding.

Possible names: The girl name is ultra-secret and already decided upon. Boy names...if I know DH, he will be pulling for things like Thor, Leif, Hrothgar, old-school Norse and Germanic names that will guarantee the child will be a willful risk-taker.
Actual name: John-Siegfried Parker B., Sigi for short - and it's NOT Ziggy. DH got what he wanted, though I also got what I wanted, which was a name that made reference to his peaceful nature in utero and now. The kid should feel lucky - other names that mean 'peace' or 'peaceful' include Ferdinand and Udo...

Any extra predictions you'd like to make: the dog will hide in the attic if I start making any sort of vocalizations, or he might start howling along with me.
Dog sat on the bed with me during contractions and was a model of noble houndness, and he did not howl. He was in the room when Sigi was born, and now he guards the baby when he sleeps and comes to check on him if he hears a cry.
This baby will be as bald as Charlie Brown until it's a year old.
Nope, he's rockin' a business in the front, party in the back baby mullet.
