I am guessing a baby BOY, but we haven't found out :)

 

Date: June 11

Time: Between 5 and 9 in the morning

Place: Our birth center in the birthing tub

Weight: 9 lbs

Hair: very blond wisps, but mostly bald

Eyes: brown

 

 

How close have you been to your guesses?

 

Our baby was a BOY!  I was right!

 

He was born June 7 at 6:41 AM, half in the tub, half out of it, weighed 8#3, has a head of dark brown hair, and brown eyes.  

 

So I was half right.

Weight: 8 lbs, 2 oz

Height: 21"

Okay, I was pretty close on my guesses (off by more than a pound on his weight, though!)

Weight: 9 lbs, 3 oz

Height: 19 1/4"

Hair: dark brown

Eyes: I'm still not quite sure. They don't quite seem blue...maybe blue/grey or something.

I think she's going to have a ton of dark hair. I'm hoping for my dad's green eyes, although I have no doubt they'll be grey like her siblings' eyes were at birth. We always have to wait a while to find out our babies' true eye colors. So far, we have one blue-eyed kid, one brown-eyed, and one hazel-eyed (green/blue/grey), so there is no telling what she'll end up with!

She was actually born June 11 at 12:38 p.m., weighing 9 pounds 7 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long. She has dark hair and we think brown eyes, although there is still a small chance of blue.

Ok- I probably should have done this earlier, but baby is still cooking at 39 w 2 d, so I guess I will take a shot:

 

Ultrasound said girl, so I will take their word for it.

I am due by my dating (I was charting and I ovulate early) 6/26, by LMP (6/29)

I say she will split the difference and come 6/27

4 pm (my DD was born at 6pm)

She will be 7'4 (my DD was only 5'13, born at 39w 6d, and I think this one is bigger)

Tons of dark hair

My husband's nose and upper lip, just like DD

Baby eyes always look indistinct, but they will turn brown

 

DD says the baby will look like her, but "will have browner skin like daddy"

She and I are both olive and she thinks her dad should get someone more his complexion in the family too.

However, at birth, in my experience, complexion is not yet discernible, and our genes are so varied in this regard I'm not sure.

I am due June 24th but I think I will have the baby on the 20th or 21st because I always birth with the new moon

I hope to start labor in the early morning middle of the night (maybe 4-5ish) and have the baby by 6

I plan to have the baby in the living room in front of the couch

I figure this one will be about 8lbs like my last two

No clue on length

Hair, I hope so lol

Their eyes always start out blue and turn hazel

 

Oh boy, I was only right on the date lol.

Girl

June 21st at 12:15am 

Labor started for real after hubby was home and dinner was done: 7pm, my shortest labor by far

I had her about two feet from where I birthed my last baby, in the kids playroom

She is 6lbs 11oz, 19in, my smallest baby

Dark hair, no clue on the eyes

I'm due June 23rd with a boy.

My guesses are:
Date: June 21st or 28th (I go back and forth on whether or not I feel like he's going to be coming a little early, or a little late.)
Time: Sometime in the early afternoon -- noon to oneish (Labor will probably start the night before.)
Place: At home in the birth tub (I'm trying to plan for everything, and have multiple places ready, but I love the water.)
Weight: 7 lbs (I hear 2nd babies are usually a little bigger than the first. DD was only just over 6 lbs.)
Height: 21 inches (This was how long DD was, but she was so skinny. I bet this boy is gonna be a little squishy. smile.gif )
Hair: A few little curly locks (I've been having a little bit of heartburn, but not near as much as with DD who had a full head of hair.)
Eyes: Blue (Like daddy's orngbiggrin.gif)

DH's guesses are:
Date: June 24th
Time: Early Evening
Place: Home
Weight: 7.5
Height: 21 in.
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Blue


Edited to add DH's guesses.
So the only things DH and I got right were the length and eyes. He was born June 16 at 8:22 A.M. In the bed. He weighed 6lbs. 13oz. Was 21 inches long. Had beautiful blue eyes and straight brown hair.

I'm due June 23rd with a girl.

 

My guesses are:

Date: June 11th or 19th

Time: hopefully late afternoon or early evening. maybe 7 pm.

Place:  anywhere but the car. the hospital.

Weight: 7.5 lbs

Height: 20 inches

Hair:  Yes! my boys were totally bald, but I'm predicting dark hair.

Eyes: Dark blue, and then brown like dad's. Then I will have three kids with three different eye colors. 

 

Wow, I was right on some at least!

She was born the 19th!

Not early evening, just after midnight.

Ironically, she was almost born in the car! I should have taken that fear a little more seriously!

she does have hair. The rest are off, she was smaller.

However, at birth, in my experience, complexion is not yet discernible, and our genes are so varied in this regard I'm not sure.

 

My guesses weren't that hot here:

She was not born until July 3rd, missing both due dates

She was born at 1 am

My weight guess was not bad- she is much bigger than DD1- born 7'10, but ironically leaving the hospital at my birth estimation of 7'4

I was 100% right on the tons of dark hair- even way more than I expected- see pic on my birth announcement thread (full moon baby).

Her nose and upper lip and chin are all just like her sis and dad

The rest of her face looks very much like a different baby

Her eyes do look brown to me.

Can't tell yet about complexion, but so far like DD1.

i think he will be 7'12" to 8 lbs. 21.5 in long. just like the rest. he will have blue eyes like his dad, me, and all his siblings. and he will have dirty blond hair like the rest of them too. he could end up with a dark brown red like me but all the children have the blonde. but it wont be alot of hair. it will be very short yet.

 

i think he will be born in the early morning between 6 and 10 am like the rest of them. and i will have him at home. i think he will be born in the living room in front of the couch or in the bedroom in front of the bed. (i like to lean on things.)

 

i also think he will look more like me just like the girls looked more like their father at birth. 

 

 

i guessed early bc the last 2 were early. i would prefer a week late though.

 

eta: dh's guess.

 

red head boy born july 4th weighing 9 lbs!

 

reality: july 6

           9lb 6 oz

            blonde hair with a touch of red

             1:59 am

            21 3/4 in

            in bathroom on birth stool

           spitting image of his dad

           blue eyes

My guesses:

 

I'm gonna go with girl, and girls are usually early in my family

Date: June 7 (there are some cool astronomical events happening on the 4-6, but this baby will probably just wait for the phenomenal event of a Thursday...)

Time: between 9-11am

Place: somewhere around our house

Weight: 7lbs 6 oz

Hair: lots of dark hair that will all fall out within 2 weeks and come back in light when she's 2

Eyes: that newborn slate blue that will turn to dark brown

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Reality:

 

A girl!  The only thing I was right on :)

Date: July 1 (funny though that labor did start on a Thursday!)

Time: 2pm

Place: labored for 88 hours all around the house-- ended up with repeat c

Weight: 8lbs 8oz

Hair: a fair amount of dark hair

Eyes: a little lighter than slate blue

Here's my guesses ---> what actually happened:

 

Date Born: July 3rd ---> July 6th

Time: 2:42am ---> 9:14am

Place: My bed --->  My bed

Weight: 8lbs 1oz ---> 8lbs 6oz

Height: 20" ---> 20"

Hair: None ----> A little bit and it is dark, very different for our family

Eyes: Blue ---> Blue

 

So, 3/7 right.  And I don't think the location or eye color even count since they were both pretty obvious.
