Actual Due Date: Sept. 24
When I think baby come: August 31 Actually Born Sept. 30, boy was I wrong..by a whole month!! lol

How I think I will labor: Quickly within 1.5 to 3 hours max. Possibly will end up with just me and my husband and my son. Thinking the mw and babysitter might not even make it in time. Wrong wrong! It ended up being 7.5 hours..twice as long as the first time

post #12 of 41
actual due date: well, the c/s is scheduled for sept 12 but i *think* my actual dd is sept 14 or 15
when i think baby will come: it had better be soon : i'll say the 22nd of august merely because i'm trying to think positively : i was close! she came 21 august
how long i think i will labour: a few hours? i'm not planning on going to hospital until my water breaks and since i didn't labour at all with dd1 i've no idea how long it'll be i wish i'd been closer on this one! i started having serious contractions around midnight on the 21st, had them all through the day and she was born at 7 30 that night, so labour was around 19 hours
what i think baby will weigh: she had *better* be more than the 5 pounds her sister was considering i outgrew my maternity clothes from pg # 1 two months ago : i'll say 6 pounds 11 oz. ah, so close here too! 5 pounds 11 ounces!
what i think gender will be: if it's anything but a girl then there are a LOT of u/s techs who'll have some explaining to do! : she's most definitely a girl!
what i think baby will look like: : probably bald like her big sister she looks *exactly* like her big sister but with dark hair and more of it

post #15 of 41
Actual Due Date: Sept. 4
When I think baby will come: Hopefully sometime this week-- I usually go a couple of weeks early, and baby dropped over the weekend
How I think I will labor: Keeping busy with nesting projects, walking as much as I can, staying away from the hospital until I'm ready to push (might just as well stay home at that point...)
What I think baby will weigh: 7 pounds-ish
What I think gender will be: DS insists that he'll have a brother, and I've been getting boy vibes the entire pregnancy, but I'm carrying like a girl... 85 % boy 15% girl would be odds if I were the betting type
What I think baby will look like: Sono picture at 32 weeks could have been from my pregnancy with DS! I'm sure this one will look just like Daddy, as do both DS and DD-- I just incubate and feed them, he apparently provides all of the genetic material
post #16 of 41
Actual Due Date: Sept 15th
When I think baby will come: Sept 20th
How I think I will labor: I going to take a chance and say it will be around 16 hours. My last was 32, so if I can just cut that in half I also think I'll labor mostly upstairs in the birth tub with dh and my doula. I'd love a water birth but I have a feeling I'll deliver on dry land.
What I think baby will weigh: 8lb 4oz
What I think gender will be: It's supposed to be a boy!
What I think baby will look like: I'm really praying he looks just like my husband :
post #17 of 41

What I think baby will look like: I think he will be darker than my last boy, but I really have no idea!
post #18 of 41
Actual Due Date: Sept. 12
When I think baby come: September 7 (September 19)
How I think I will labor: Shorter and easier than last time. Probably around 12 hours of labor; 1 hour of pushing. (8 hours of labor, 45 minutes of pushing)
What I think baby will weigh: 8.5-9.5 pounds (9,7 - exact same as his big brother)
What I think Gender will be: Boy; but I wouldn't be COMPLETELY shocked if it is a girl. (He's a boy!)
What I think baby will look like: Hopefully more like me (DS is a carbon copy of my DH). I think it will definitely have a big head, DH's extra-long torso, and I'm REALLY, REALLY hoping for my eyes! Dark hair, too. (DH's eyes, everything else I was right on...)
post #19 of 41

Actual Due Date: Sept. 13
When I think baby come: Sept. 15
How I think I will labor: No idea but maybe 5-6 hrs
What I think baby will weigh: 7 lbs 4 oz
What I think Gender will be: I have boy vibes
What I think baby will look like: Just like his sister and Daddy. I really hope he/she will have my eyes but genetics are probably going to end up with baby having DH's dark eyes. I'm hoping baby isn't as much of a cone head as DD was at birth.
