*Due Date* and guess date and time: Jan 30th at 10 am. I delivered my first on my due date and my second 4 days late. I'm hoping for something new this time, maybe a couple days early!

Guess of hours in labor: 2 hours would be great, I hope it isn't any faster. My first was 4 hours of active labor, including 1 hour of pushing. My second was 21/2 hours of labor, including 15 minutes of pushing. I hope the midwife can get to the house on time!

Weight and Length: 8 would be perfectly petite, around 20 inches long (wishful thinking)! DS #1 was 8.3 and DS#2 9.4lbs- hopefully not a trend!
Actual Weight and Length:

Oh, they all start out looking like mom and end of looking like dad. I hope this one looks like I was at least at the party!
