Labor Prediction Quiz....JFF :)

I found this quiz while I was bored and googling stuff.  It predicts when you will go into labor based on you, your partner, and your previous births.  

 

It says I'll be 2-3 weeks early and will have my baby in the morning after laboring for about 11 hrs.  And that he'll be 6.2 lbs.  Hmmm!!  

 

Sorry if anyone has already posted this...I didn't notice it before!

YAY Fun! Thanks for sharing.  Just one issue I had with the quiz- It didn't allow for c-sections! My DH was a c-section... :-)  So I just put Unsure.  LOL

 

Here's my result:

 

We predict your baby will be born after its due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 7.5 pounds and that your labor will be about 13 hours long.

 

 

That doesn't sound half bad to me, as long as it's not TOO long after my EDD!

Oh, that's annoying about the C section thing!  Hopefully it gathered enough info to give you at least an idea, though.  Not that it necessarily means anything, but it's fun to pretend we can predict!

This is what I got..


 

 

I know you were hoping we weren't going to say this, but don't expect this baby to come early. Your baby is nice and comfy tucked away in your womb and has no interest in joining the rest of the world. We predict your baby will be born after its due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the middle of the night. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 8.3 pounds and that your labor will be about 14 hours long.

Eh... it just averaged the info for my birth and my daughter's births. Would dh's birth really make a difference? Seems odd... I'm not related to his mom!

Fun, though. And I agree: baby will be late and at least 9 lbs. I'm betting more, though. :)

That is fun!  I realized that I don't know how long my mother's labor was with me or if I was early/late/on time.  Same with my dh.  So I guess I better email to find out b/c I want to take the quiz!!  lol.gif

Okay, here are my results!

 

You won't need to try any secret recipes to bring on labor. Have your emergency numbers ready. Don't wait until the last minute to get your nursery ready. We predict your baby will come 1-2 weeks early. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 7.5 pounds and that your labor will be about 8 hours long.

 

Well, it's predicting a longer labor than with #2 (but not an average of my two), so maybe that's the #3 wild card factor.  But 1-2 weeks early?  Why earlier than both my others?  I wonder if it's working on averages from data entered by mothers or if it's just doing some weird algorithm that someone came up with.

 

No matter... it was fun!  Thanks for posting Gemini!

Just about the time you think you can't handle hearing one more "when is that baby going to pop?", your baby will decide to make it's appearance. We predict your baby will be born 3-7 days before its due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 8.0 pounds and that your labor will be about 9 hours long.

 

God, I can only pray to have this baby a couple days early. lol

Pretty much what I expected! My other two were 4 and 6 days past my due date, and ~9 lbs each. Although I was kind of hoping for a bit smaller baby this time. 8 or 8 1/2 lbs would be nice!

Unacceptable!  I demand this baby come out sooner.  Haha.  Here is how I see my real birth story:

 

You were just getting out of the car in the Fred Meyer parking lot.  When you stepped out, you felt a cramp and had to catch your 7 pound 7 ounce baby before it hit the ground.  The end.

ROTFLMAO.gif love it

 

My labor prediction quiz isn't very accurate because DH doesn't know much about his history. We were guessing with him, lol. But I sure am annoyed at the prospect that it says we'll have the baby later than our EDD! My mom said I was super overdue when she had me via c-section (2+ weeks, although she exaggerates and says "a month!" which I don't believe LOL). If I go overdue by even a week I think I might have a nervous breakdown. Sheepish.gif

 

I don't know if I want a quick labor anymore, though! It sounded nice until I was informed by women I know who have had shorter labors that the shorter they are, the more intense they typically are....... like if you get a Pitocin induction, everything is more intense and less bearable than without. I sure hope that isn't how it is for everyone! If I can have about a 4-6 hour labor that is very bearable, I think I'll be happy. orngbiggrin.gif DH just better be home when I go into labor... He works nights and oversees patients on his own so if I call him to rush home, it won't quite be a quick thing for him to leave on the spot. He'll either have to wake patients up and ask them to go home so he can leave, or he'll have to call any other co-worker he can find to come in and take over on the spot. I don't see either of those processes being very quick. lol

This is my understanding for first time labors as well.  If it's short, it's intense b/c the body has to go from 0 to 10 in a short period of time.  With subsequent labors, shorter doesn't necessarily mean more intense b/c the mom is usually starting partially (or even mostly) dilated.

Sounds about right to me, lol. (Even though I was a c/s baby)

I'm paranoid about baby coming early, but I was also with my son and he was only 1 day early so who knows!  

post #16 of 42

Get your bags packed early just in case you need them. Make sure your partner has a phone available when he's away because this baby just might come early. We predict your baby will come 2-3 weeks early. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 8.3 pounds and that your labor will be about 15 hours long.

 

I'll take it!

post #17 of 42

Wow, Katie!  I take it you were early?  And over 8 pounds 2-3 weeks early???  lol.gif

post #18 of 42

MrsKatie is the one to watch right now. No pressure, though.  winky.gif

post #19 of 42

I was born at 36 weeks 6 days... which is where I'm at TODAY.  And I was a 7.5-pounder, but DH was a 9-pounder, so I guess that's where they get the weight prediction??  I was totally healthy and fine (as can be seen by the weight), my mom just baked babies quickly.  All 3 of us were at least 2 weeks early.  And my mom's labor was about 4 hours long with me (and I was her longest labor), but DH's mom was in labor for FOUR. DAYS.  So... yeah.

 

Here's hoping there's some truth to the saying "like mother, like daughter" !!!

It just averaged my information.  I'm pretty sure if this baby stays put until my due date she's going to be a lot bigger then 7.5 pounds!
