I really have no clue. well, I know its a girl. LOL and I hope i go a little early, but dont have any feelings about it.
post #22 of 31
Date and time January 20th, around 7 am

height and weight 21 inches 8 lbs 2 oz

sex if you don't know yet Think I lean toward thinking it's a girl, but really don't know. Would love either.

any thoughts about the birth in general Think it'll be faster than last time (17 hours active), esp. the pushing (4 hours), but not super-fast. Maybe 12 hours total with 1.5 hours pushing. I hope!

anything else if you think of I hope overall that it's a totally relaxed and "holy" birth - I feel like the people coming will bring tons of positive energy. I hope to fully allow myself to open to the energy of the women coming and let them help me feel like a goddess. I am excited to meet this new little person!

Date and time: EDD is Feb. 21, so I'm going to go with Feb. 26, at about 11pm.

height and weight: 21", 7 pounds 4 ounces

sex if you don't know yet: we know, it's a boy!

any thoughts about the birth in general: I am expecting labour to be long, but really hoping everything goes as planned (as far as no drugs, no interventions, etc) even though we are going to a hospital. My doctor is fantastic though, and only gives epidurals in an absolute emergency (her patients' rate is 4% compared to the hospital's 80%!!), so there will be tons of support.

anything else you think of: i can't wait!!!

Date and time: I am due February 17 but I am going to do my best to get baby out before then because I have severe SPD so I am going to go with a birth date of February 5 around 2:30 pm. I actually delivered on January 22 due to high blood pressure and the time was 9:53 pm

Height and weight: Hmmm.. I think the baby will be 20 inches and 7 lbs. 11 oz. She was actually 21 inches long and 8 lbs. 4 oz.

Sex: we could not get a definite view on the u/s but I am convinced its a girl. We have an u/s scheduled for this Tuesday the 17th and I am hoping to find out for sure then. Yes she is a little girl

Thoughts about the birth in general: I definately think I am going to have my VBA2C. I think I am going to go into labour around 4:30 am and that labour & pushing will take about 10 hours total. The baby will be born in hospital but with just the midwives and DH in the room and I am willing myself not to tear!!! Well this is a hard one to answer. No I did not get my VBA2C. I developed high blood pressure and due to my history (almost died of HELLP syndrome with son) she needed to be delivered at 36 weeks. They can't induce after 2 c-sections so she was born by c-section. I am okay with it though. It was a very precious birth.

Thought I'd bump this up to see how accurate we were! Just edit your previous post so we can see how we did.

My water broke at 10 am on Feb 10th, but he wasn't born until the 11th.

height and weight: 21 inches and upper 8 to lower 9 lbs, he definitely feels bigger than dd who was 7 lb 12 oz and 20 in

He was 8 lb 15 oz, so I was in the right area for weight. He was only 19 3/4 in though.

sex: several clear ultrasound pics of a boy

A boy, no surprises there.

any thoughts about the birth in general: It would be nice if the baby was born over a weekend, as that's the only way my dad can make it and it makes the arrangements for dd much easier. I wouldn't be opposed to a quicker labor than I had with dd and would be happy if this babe didn't totally wrap himself up in the cord like his sister did, which was causing heart decels and a lot of anxiety for me.
Well, he cooperated and came over a weekend, but my dad didn't make it. There were plenty of people to watch dd and the labor was quicker than dd's. He did manage to wrap the cord around his neck though and didn't have the greatest color when he first came out. Pinked up quickly though.[/B]

Date and time--- February 2nd at Hmmm... 7:48am
height and weight---19 1/2 inches 8 pounds 4 ounces
sex if you don't know yet--- I know this too... u/s says GIRL
any thoughts about the birth in general---I hope this c-section is as easy as the last one was.
anything else if you think of it---Gosh I hope they don't leave anything in there!!!

~It WAS February 2nd (she didn't come early like I thought she was going to!) I was only 20 minutes early on the guessed time though! She was born at 8:08am
~She was 20 1/8th inches and weighed 7 pounds 10 ounces!
~Indeed a girl!
~The c-section was the easiest of the three I have had but I am having a slightly more difficult recovery this time around. Wondering if it was because they tied my tubes too.
~Still to early to tell if they left anything in there since I wouldn't be able to tell the pain from that from my other pain!!

sex if you don't know yet Boy : even though a girl would be easier for me
any thoughts about the birth in general I might labor for quite awhile, but I'll only push a few times, hopefully it's quick and easy
anything else if you think of it I just can't wait to have this little Sprout in my arms rather than beating on my insides
I was close.

Actual date and time: Feb. 13 at 6:43
Actual weight and height : 20 inches 7 lbs. 2 oz
Gender: girl

It was an easy birth, at least I got that right
