My Guesses...
Sex (your guess or u/s result): Girl (u/s results) She was a girl... Hailey Josephine
What day will baby be born: May 19 May 19 it was, although I thought we might go early there for a while
What time baby will be born: 10 am She was born at 8:55 am
Length of labor: none
Where: birthing center/hospital OR [ COLOR="pink"][/COLOR]
Weight: 7lbs. 5ozs. 8 pounds 1 ounce
Length:20 1/2 inches 19 inches (but she was 20 1/2 inches at her 1st check-up)
Special notes: We are scheduled for a c-section birth 1 day before 40 weeks. I am hoping to go into labor before that, but not optimistic as our first was induced 5 days after my due date, and we were pretty sure on the date. I suspect the doctor will probably try to push for May 15, as that is her typical surgery day, although she has agreed to the 19th. We will see. Our doctor was true to her word and Hailey was born on the 19th. Our OB and hospital went above and beyond to meet all of our birth plan requests. Despite being a c-section birth, it was beautiful and wonderful! DH even got to cut the cord! And DD never left our side!

Edited to add: I'm wrong already, we were just scheduled for 8am, and the doctor sees a patient at 9, so I am guessing that 10am is too late!

Your Guesses...
Sex (your guess or u/s result): My guess is Boy
What day will baby be born: Thursday, May 19 (wishful thinking maybe...that's a week early, lol...it's the first date that popped into my mind)
What time baby will be born: 9:46am
Length of labor: 4-5 hours
Where: Hospital
Weight: 7 lbs 8 oz
Length: 21"
Special notes: I think it will be another mad rush to the hospital! However, if it looks like things are going quickly, I probably won't go to the hospital at all. It depends on if DH is here or not!

Edited to say ~ oops, Thursday is the 18th, not the 19th...My "day" guess is Friday, 5/19.

-------------------------------------

Okay, baby is here...let's see how I did

Sex (your guess or u/s result): My guess is Boy - nope, girl!
What day will baby be born: Thursday, May 19 - not even close - 6/1
What time baby will be born: 9:46am - 1:30pm
Length of labor: 4-5 hours - 10 hours!
Where: Hospital - yep
Weight: 7 lbs 8 oz - I WISH! 9lbs.3oz
Length: 21" - 19.5"
Special notes: I think it will be another mad rush to the hospital! However, if it looks like things are going quickly, I probably won't go to the hospital at all. It depends on if DH is here or not! - nope, it wasn't the huge rush we thought it would be. In fact, things puttered along for a while because of a cervical lip that wouldn't budge. DH was there, though, and that's the important part!!!

Ok, at 39 weeks I'm ready to play.
