Here's mine...

Get your bags packed early just in case you need them. Make sure your partner has a phone available when he's away because this baby just might come early. We predict your baby will come 2-3 weeks early. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 6.7 pounds and that your labor will be about 13 hours long.

"I know you were hoping we weren't going to say this, but don't expect this baby to come early. Your baby is nice and comfy tucked away in your womb and has no interest in joining the rest of the world. We predict your baby will be born after its due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 8.3 pounds and that your labor will be about 5 hours long."

Yeah, well, . The one thing I don't think I'll be is overdue because I don't think I can handle that this time. Guess we'll see.

I got the same message too. So I typed "labor quiz" into their search box and got the quiz that way.

"Just about the time you think you can't handle hearing one more "when is that baby going to pop?", your baby will decide to make it's appearance. We predict your baby will be born 3-7 days before your due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 9.3 pounds and that your labor will be about 5 hours long."

You won't need to try any secret recipes to bring on labor. Have your emergency numbers ready. Don't wait until the last minute to get your nursery ready. We predict your baby will come 1-2 weeks early. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 9.2 pounds and that your labor will be about 12 hours long.

Here's what I got:

We predict your baby will be born 3-7 days before its due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 8.0 pounds and that your labor will be about 12 hours long.

I definitely would prefer to go early rather than late so let's hope this holds true.

Well, mine said exactly what I have always known. Baby will be late, around 7.5 pounds and labor about 4 hours. Since five of my seven births have been late, I am pretty sure I will run late (maybe as late as the first of August). Since five of my seven have been right around 7.5, I am quite sure that is an accurate weight forecast, and since my labor are usually short with my longest being about 6 hours and my shortest just over an hour, I can really see 4 hours. Four of mine had that same time, though I am really looking forward to shorter.

I'd like a refund on my free "for entertainment purposes only" quiz. I would like a longer birth this time, please. 2 hours or under is just not long enough to really enjoy labor, IMO.

Bwahahahahaha!

It says:

"Get your bags packed early just in case you need them. Make sure your partner has a phone available when he's away because this baby just might come early. We predict your baby will come 2-3 weeks early. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 6.8 pounds and that your labor will be about 14 hours long."

Yeah, yeah. I'd love a 14-hour labor. The only one I had that was THAT short was induced at nearly 2 weeks past the due date. Their predictions are probably going on the fact that after this many kids, I SHOULD have a quick labor... but the last one certainly defied those odds at 105 hours!!

Sounds like you & I should mix our labor histories together so we can a decent length! Let's see an hour & a half, combined with 105 hours, divided by two... well golly that just means a 54 hour labor for each of us!

My longest labor was my posterior first baby. The others were well positioned (thank you www.spinningbabies.com ) and just kind of shot out rocket style.

Well, I'll trade you for my predicted 5 hour labor! My last labor was 2 hours long and another 2 hour labor would be just fine with me.

This is actually close to my own predictions. I guessed that I will give right around my due date, labor will about 12 hrs, baby will be born in the morning, etc., but I guessed this baby would be closer to 7lbs.

Exactly what I thought. I've even been telling everyone, "The due date is the 18th, but don't expect anything until the 25th!"

Oooh, Sonja, that's awesome that you loved your 2-hour labor! Sometimes they just hit you like a train. I did fine with mine, but I missed laboring with my DH. I was just so confused that I couldn't figure out what was going on & then suddenly my body started pushing!

I'll totally take your trade from 2 hours to 5 for you. Let's shake on it, or do we need a contact?

Yeah, that was me with #2. 1 hour 40 mins. My husband and the midwife barely made it home in time. I was jumping around like a freak figuring there was no way I could do this for X more hours, and then I suddenly started pushing and that was it. So fast.
My third was perfect. Water broke. 3 hours of relaxing. Slow easy contractions for a few hours, then the last hour picked up and pushing hurt but was brief. Just right. I even got some laundry folded. I'll take another one of those.
