Birth Predictions Thread

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I did this with my daughter and thought it was fun after the fact to see how wrong or right we were, so I thought I'd start one for this baby too!



So I'll start, here are my predictions:

BOY because we know that he is 100% boy I'm cheating, I know!
He'll be born either Jan 27 (1 day before his due date)
OR February 1st (at 41 weeks exactly) - I just can't figure out which feels more "right" so I'm putting them both.

Guessing he'll weigh 8 lbs 3 oz
20 inches long

He'll be born early early morning- 3-4 am
Active labour will be about 4 hours



And because I thought this was hilarious, my Madam Zaritska Prediction:

The day you deliver, outside will be stormy. Your baby will arrive in the mid morning. After a labor lasting approximately 10 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 14 pounds, 8 ounces, and will be 16-1/2 inches long. This child will have dark amber eyes and some brown hair.

Here is my Madame Zaristka prediction:
The day you deliver, outside will be cloudy. Your baby will arrive in the early afternoon. After a labor lasting approximately 17 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 5 pounds, 9 ounces, and will be 16 inches long. This child will have medium blue eyes and some brown hair.

My prediction:
Definitely a baby...still have no clue on sex at all
Date of Birth: January 22, 2010 (Friday)
Weight: no more than 6lbs 8 oz. (1st was 5-11 & 2nd was 6-2)
Time: in the morning...(both other babies were morning babies)
Length: 20" (a 16" long baby is kinda scary)
Labor time: praying for less than 25 hours (first was 43 & 2nd was 25)

oh, the Madame stuff is cracking me up! here's what her prediction is for me:
The day you deliver, outside will be hot. Your baby will arrive in the evening. After a labor lasting approximately 17 hours, your child, a boy, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 7 pounds, 10 ounces, and will be 16 inches long. This child will have light brown eyes and a little patch of auburn hair.

hot outside, huh? well, we've had warm Christmases before! (I'm by the coast) but usually it's chilly.

Anyways, my thoughts:

For sure a boy (u/s was pretty clear). Due Date is 1/2/10 but I think he'll come on 12/28/09. Size, 21" and 9lb even. I'm rooting for a short labor of about 6 hours. Interestingly enough, my son was a 17 hour labor and had red hair so the Madame might have been thinking of his birth (altho I agree with Mary, 16" is freaky small!).

Madame Zaritska, using her mystical powers, has the following prediction:

The day you deliver, outside will be sunny. Your baby will arrive in the middle of the afternoon. After a labor lasting approximately 4 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 13 pounds, 7 ounces, and will be 22 inches long. This child will have dark hazel eyes and some brown hair.

All guesses are fair on the gender, so it could be a girl, and I am measuring 4 weeks ahead so it could be a big girl... but 13.7 might be a tad on the ginormous side...

My prediction:
Boy, 9'8, 22 inches, born on or prior to January 19th. (I'm due the 23rd)
Laboring 20+ hours.

I keep thinking of my Madam Z prediction and cracking up. 14 lbs but only 16 inches?? She'd be like a bowling ball! LOL!

This is fun! It'll be neat to see what actually happens
post #6 of 32
My Prediction:

Date and Time: December 23rd around 7am
Hours of Labor: 8
Weights/Lengths: both between 5.75 and 6.25lbs and 18 inches

Madame's:
The day you deliver, outside will be warm. Your baby will arrive in the late evening. After a labor lasting approximately 13 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 6 pounds, 4 ounces, and will be 17-1/2 inches long. This child will have medium blue eyes and barely there red hair.

Her prediction actually isn't totally out of the realm of possibility apart from the length and the fact that I know that I am having 2 girls. I have a red head already and it definitely runs in the family.

I think the baby is a boy
Born in my 39th week
6 lbs and 10 oz.
19"
Born in the morning


Here is the Madame's take on it:
The day you deliver, outside will be hot. Your baby will arrive in the middle of the night. After a labor lasting approximately 20 hours, your child, a boy, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 6 pounds, 9 ounces, and will be 20-1/2 inches long. This child will have dark brown eyes and barely there blonde hair.

My thoughts are that it will be a darn miracle if it is "hot" outside in January in Wisconsin. But I guess we will see

post #13 of 32
I went back and found my predictions for my daughter's birth:

The day you deliver, outside will be sunny. Your baby will arrive in wee hours of the morning. After a labor lasting approximately 2 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 7 pounds, 7 ounces, and will be 19 inches long. This child will have light brown eyes and dark hair. But there is more. I sense that you are feeling some stress. This is very normal. However, I would like to suggest that you try some of these methods to pamper yourself a bit. <-- Mme Z.

OK, the stress thing is true. Sunny in February/March in Iowa... I guess it's possible, although it will be friggin' cold. However, a 2 hour labor?? I think not. I would be absolutely shocked if my labor was that short (this is my first kid -- I'd rather anticipate a marathon and be pleasantly surprised than hope for a quickie and be disappointed). I just don't see myself as a precipitous labor type gal.

I think it's a boy, and it's possible that the coloring is right but for some reason I expect my kid to look more like DH (blond/blue eyes) than me (dark hair/eyes). So it's possible but I'd be surprised. I certainly wouldn't mind a darker babe, or a girl.


Mme Z was right about the sunny day -- it was the only sunny day in February that year!! And it WAS a girl, even though I was sure it was a boy (although I was right about her coloring -- very fair). Labor was DEFINITELY longer than 2 hours -- more like 21, and DD was 8lb5oz and 18 in.

For this baby, Mme Z says:
"The day you deliver, outside will be cloudy. Your baby will arrive in the late afternoon. After a labor lasting approximately 15 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 7 pounds, 3 ounces, and will be 17-1/2 inches long. This child will have dark blue eyes and barely there blonde hair."

Cloudy -- I can see that, being in Iowa in January. I would love another girl, so I hope she's right about that! I kind of hope labor is shorter than 15 hours, but I'm not going to get picky on that -- anything shorter is a gain in my book!

My predictions:
I think it's a girl. I think she'll be born during my 39th week, like Robin was -- sometime in the 'teens in January. I keep thinking 18th, but I think that's just because I like the number 18. (I thought the same thing with DD, and she was due the 26th of Feb). I think this girl will be darker in coloring. I think she'll be around 8.5 lbs and avg length (longer than DD). I don't know what time she will be born, though -- sometimes I envision a middle of the night birth, sometimes I think it will be daytime. But I don't think it will be early morning.

Wow, this is my first baby, so I'm really going out on a limb here. LOL.

My due date is January 29th, but I feel very strongly about having a February babe ... perhaps February 5th.

(Joking, of course), but I told my husband I refuse to have a baby 9 pounds or larger. I'm hoping for a little one between 7 & 8 1/2 pounds.

As for height ... 21 1/2 inches. Again, I have no clue how long my baby will actually be!

I know I'm having a boy.

I see him being born in late evening. I'll call it a 22 hour labor (really I have no clue).

I'd love a little redhead. (Husband is a blonde.) I'd be happy with either hair color. And I think his eyes will be blue like my husband's.

And I'm hoping he'll be born at home in a birthing tub.

Madame Zaritska's predictions:

The day you deliver, outside will be cloudy. Your baby will arrive in the early afternoon. After a labor lasting approximately 16 hours, your child, a boy, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 11 pounds, 9 ounces, and will be 18-1/2 inches long. This child will have light brown eyes and some brown hair.

My prediction

born on December 28th after 11ish hours of labor
born in the early afternoon
Lots of dark hair and dark brown eyes

Fun!!

My prediction:

Gender: I initially thought girl and then I was convinced boy and that changed to thinking I was having a girl again.
Due date: Dec 31/Jan 1
Born: December 31
Weight/Length: 7 lbs. 6 oz. and 20"
Labor: 12 hours

Here was my Madame Zaritska prediction:

The day you deliver, outside will be dark. Your baby will arrive in the mid morning. After a labor lasting approximately 4 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 9 pounds, 1 ounces, and will be 18-1/2 inches long. This child will have light blue eyes and a lot of black hair.

Ok, this is fun. My predictions:

Gender: I was convinced it was a boy, but now I really don't know. Stupid Chinese chart threw me off my game.
Due date: January 30th
Born: February 2nd
Weight/Length: 7 pounds 8 ounces, 21" long
Labor: 11 hours

Madame's (eerily plausible, except awfully skinny):

The day you deliver, outside will be foggy. Your baby will arrive in the middle of the afternoon. After a labor lasting approximately 7 hours, your child, a boy, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 5 pounds, 2 ounces, and will be 21 inches long. This child will have light gray eyes and a little patch of brown hair.

It's fun to guess. :P

Let's see, well we know it's a boy.
I keep thinking he will be born Jan 1st, but I suspect that's just because I've always thought that would be cool. But, also that would be three weeks early, which was what my daughter was.
Actually guess Jan 7
weight/length 8 pounds 1 ounce, 20.5"
Labor, 1 hour... haha. Ok, really I am going to say 10 hours.
I hope he doesn't come at 4 am like my daughter, that was rough. So, I'll guess 1:43am
