post #24 of 48
EDD: Jan 8, 2009
Baby's gender: Boy - Boy!
Weight (lbs/oz): 8 lbs, 11 oz. - 8 lbs, 3 oz.
Length (in): 21.5" - 21.25"
Baby birthdate and gestation: Jan 11, 2009 - 40w, 3d - Jan 9, 2009 (40w, 1 d)
Time of day: 8pm-ish - 3:40 am (but labor started around 8:30 pm!)
Length of labor: 14 hours - 7 hours!
Place of Birth: home, bedroom, on or by the bed - the side of the bed
Other details: I'll get woken up at 6am with contractions and be really cranky about not getting enough sleep! We'll run out of hot water for the pool, or it'll spring a leak, or the faucet attachment won't work, or it'll deflate, or some other glitch will happen that makes it impossible for me to use the pool. - well, the pool did get a leak but we fixed it. But, when I finally got in, I only made it through a couple contractions before I had to get out because it wasn't comfortable at all, and when I got out, I started feeling pushy. Maybe it accelerated things?

I have a new prediction, from closer to the end:

Length (in): 19"

Time of day: noon
Length of labor: 5 hours
Place of Birth: in the registration hall :
Other details: I'll have just arrived, crowning, at the hospital because things are moving so fast and I'll feel the urge to push and slide down to the floor, reach down and catch my own baby.

post #30 of 48
I wasn't here for the original posting of this, so I am glad that you bumped it.

EDD: 1/10/09
Baby's gender: I am guessing girl
Weight (lbs/oz): 8lbs 5oz.
Length (in): 21 1/2"
Baby birthdate and gestation: I am going to cheat a little. I don't have a date for it yet, but the first time that SO gets a 3 day weekend. (Happens about every 6 weeks.)
Time of day: 3:40 am or pm
Length of labor: Originally I was saying over 24 hours, but now that my best friend moved 7 hours away I think that she will not make it in time.
Place of Birth: in my birth pool
Other details: My kids and SO will be here, but not necessarily my MW
post #31 of 48
EDD: 1/19/09
Baby's gender: REALLY hoping and praying for a girl
Weight (lbs/oz): hoping for 8lbs, let's say 7lbs 14oz
Length (in): 22 (DS was 19 1/4 at 35 weeks)
Baby birthdate and gestation: December 29th, 37 weeks
Time of day: 3pm
Length of labor: 4 hours (DS was a little over 5)
Place of Birth: Home :
Other details: DS was a 5 hour pit-induced labor, but my water broke that morning on its own. I don't think they ever turned my pit up very high. Honestly I'd love a longer labor, as a 5 hour labor is REALLY intense. I'd love to be able to walk around, visit with my MIL and best friend who will be here, and ease into the process.

Bumping again...
Can't wait until we can compare these predictions to what actually happened!

EDD: 1/9/09 but with twins probably around 12/20/08
Baby's gender: one of each
Weight (lbs/oz): 6 lbs, 2 oz, 5 lbs. 14 oz.
Length (in): 19" each
Baby birthdate and gestation: 37 weeks gestation (also hope to get in the calendar year for taxes and insurance deductables)
Time of day: 4:32P and 4:34P (this is the most random question)
Length of labor: hopefully shorter than last time. About 10 hours.
Place of Birth: Hospital
Other details: Planning on a vaginal birth, not a C-section unless, when the time comes, the babies are upside down and sideways to make a vaginal delivery impossible.
I already have revisional guesses. DH is working through the 21st so I'm hoping they don't come until the 22nd or later. I'm going with the karma of 22nd, 2-two's, two babies, 2nd night of Hanukkah. The karma of 2's.

And i know they're both over the weight I guessed.

We'll see how we do with the rest of the predictions.
