So... My prediction. Lets see, I am due on the 1st, and I really really want her to hang on until my birthday which is the 10th. Of course that puts me at 10 days over due and I have never gone more than 1 day past my EDD. Now the only thing is DS1 came the day before his EDD with no augmentation at all, DS2 came the day after, but I was induced (because of pre-e) with pit and labored for about 20 hours. And then with DS3 I went into labor the day after his EDD after a "vigorous" sweep from my midwife (again everyone was freaking out because of pre-e). Because of my past births being pretty close to the EDD, I highly doubt that I will go late. Maybe a day or two, but not much more. Not only my past births but there is also the evidence of babies following suit of their parents, like if mom and dad were both late baby will tend to be late, and if mom was early but dad late baby will be closer to the actual EDD, mom and dad both early, baby tends to be early. And so on. With these factors in mind, it makes me feel like I am having a February baby. DP was a week early, and I was 2 weeks early (but my ex was 2 weeks late which is why DS2 and 3 were on their EDD).
I am just coming to the realization that I could be rambling like a total insane person... Hopefully it all makes some kind of sense!
Okay, so my prediction! February 26th (simply because I want her to go late, she will come early!!), for some reason I see that date on the calendar and it just jumps at me. I also think I will wake up in the middle of the night to pee and my water will brake either on the way to the toilette or (hopefully) on the toilette. But contractions won't start right away and I will get a few more hours of sleep, then in the wee hours of the morning, like 4-5ish contractions will no longer allow me to sleep, and she will be born around 11am in the birth tub. I will pull her up to me when she comes out and she will be 8 pounds 2 ounces with lots of dark hair and 21 inches long...
Wow... that sounds like a blissful birth!! I can't wait!! Except the date part, stay in my belly little peanut!!
