Almost Forgot to update this. 

 

Baby's gender

Guess- Girl - OB said 99%

Actual-  Girl!!!!

 

Baby's birth date and time

Due date- 9/16 (I charted, but whatever) or OB thinks 9/10

Guess- 9/12 8pm - during the full moon

Actual- 9/11 5:55pm  pretty close, off by 24hrs

 

Baby's weight and length

Guess- 8lbs 10oz.

Actual-  9lbs 2oz.  Didn't think I'd see over 9lbs again.

 

Place of birth

Guess- Home - probably in the bedroom or living room on the couch or floor

Actual- Hospital - midwife and Endo doc risked me out of a homebirth. :(

 

Length of labor

Guess- 4 - with all these b-h contractions and her being smaller and most likely not being stuck, I'm predicting it being much shorter than last time, which was 8hrs.

Updating!!

 

 

Baby's gender

Guess- Boy (I feel like that's cheating since I've had an ultrasound that was pretty clear, but I guess you never know)

Actual- Boy.

 

Baby's birth date and time

Due date- 9/9/11 (this is the one my midwife gave me and the one that's in my file... but I have been saying it's 9/5 all along, and if you go by my LMP it's August 29th)

Guess- 9/5/11 (Labor Day!) 2:35pm

Actual- 9/27/11 7:53am (I was WAY off!!)

 

Baby's weight and length

Guess- 9 lbs, 14 oz

Actual- 9lbs. 9.5 oz. (pretty close!!)

 

Place of birth

Guess- At home in the water next to my bed... although I dreamed that my water broke in the middle of the night in bed (and it was so real that I went out the next day and bought a waterproof mattress cover). orngbiggrin.gif

Actual- At home on my bed.

 

Length of labor

Guess- 14 hours

Actual- 48 hours of very hard prodromal labor (contractions every 10-30mins), 20 hours of active labor, 23 minutes of pushing 

 

Baby looks like mom/dad/mailman

Guess- Mostly like his father with dark skin and lots of curly black hair, but with gold eyes like mine. :D

Actual- Thick, dark, wavy hair and dark eyes, olive toned skin, a slightly cleft chin and broad nose and a cupid's bow mouth. (Basically, as predicted... like his father, but with my mouth and lighter skin than I expected)

 


Moo.

I know I'm not posting this before the baby was born, but I think it's fun to share what my guesses were. I had written them down previously....

 

 

 

Baby's gender

Guess- I was convinced it was a girl, but DH thought it's a boy.

Actual- 20 week u/s and a follow up u/s when we needed to confirm positioning (baby went breech and then flipped head down) said it was a boy, and in deed - it is a boy

 

Baby's birth date and time

Due date- 9/9

Guess- 9/3

Actual- 9/21

 

Baby's weight and length

Guess- 9 lbs 4oz ( I was trying to be nice to myself), 22 inches

Actual- 9lbs 8oz, 23 inches - I knew he was going to be a big boy - bigger than his brother, who was 8lbs 13oz, 21 inches

 

Place of birth

Guess- Hospital LDR room

Actual- Hospital LDR room

 

Length of labor

Guess- 8 hours

Actual- from first contraction 16 hours, but active labor through birth was more like 4 hours

 

Baby looks like mom/dad/mailman

Guess- never really guessed on this one....

Actual- He definitely looks more like me


Two wonderful boys born Aug 2009 and Sept 2011, and #3 due April 2015! I'm also a CLC and postpartum doula.
