I think it's time to start guessing:

 

Birthday (including time)

 

Gender (if you do not already know)

 

Weight

 

Length

 

Anything else fun you want to guess on...some of us will start having baby's in November, and as they are born we can start updating with what actually happened and see how close we guessed!

Gender (if you do not already know) Girl... no, boy... no! GIRL!

 

Weight 7 pounds 4 ounces

 

Length 20"

 

My baby will be bald :( But she will have an assortment of really cute hats!

I feel wayyy too early to make guesses, but here goes!

 

Due Date as per ovulation is December 1st. My siblings went 2 days early (G), 2 days late (B), 2 days early (G), and then 3 weeks late (B, different father). For some reason I'm banking on going just over. 

 

 

Birthday (including time) December 8th, at... 3:36am (the time I was born at. I just seeeee myself laboring at night). 

 

Gender (if you do not already know) Girl... and if somehow they messed that up on the ultrasound, I feel sorry for the little guy, because girl seemed obvious! lol

 

Weight 7 pounds 2oz.   (I was 6.6 and DH was 7.5)

 

Length 21"  (I was 19 3/4, and I don't know what DH was, but he's 6'4)

 

I'm pretty sure she'll have dark hair, and probably lots of it. I was born with an absolutely full head of jet black hair, that turned strawberry blong by the time I was six months, and DH has almost black hair now (not much at birth though). I think she'll be skinny, but with a roundish face.

Birthday: December 7th, around 5am

 

Gender: My mama senses tell me it's a boy

 

Weight: 8lbs. even

 

Length: 21 inches

 

I think he'll have a good amount of dark hair that will lighten as he gets older and will look like DH, especially his eyes. I think he'll be chubby. Also, I think this labor is going to be fast and furious. My first labor was 9 1/2 hours and I feel like I'll have a much shorter labor this time around.

Born: December 15th. I'm due the 27th, early morning sometime, around 7am

We know its a boy. ;)

Weight: Bigger than my first four babies, 8 lbs. 4 oz.

Length: 21 inches

 

I hope he comes mid December and not at the end! I know we'll want to meet him!!

 

We had a 4D ultrasound done at 17 weeks and the anatomy scan at 20 weeks. This child looks EXACTLY like his siblings, LOL. Big upper lip, probably smallish eyes, will be bald for months. I cannot believe how much he looks like his brother, it freaked me out when I saw the u/s photos!

Birthday (including time): Dec. 18, 2011 at 11:11pm (EDD 12/11/11)

 

Gender (if you do not already know): Boy (but we know)

 

Weight: 7 lbs 5 oz

 

Length: 20"

 

We also had a couple 4D ultrasounds and this baby has lots of hair and looks just like his father! Since I can't guess eye color based on a u/s, I'm going to take a guess that he has dark blue eyes with a small amount of green speckles (we won't know that for several months after he is born though!)

Birthday: 12/13 at 6AM (exactly one week past EDD)

 

Gender:  It's a girl for sure

 

Weight: 8lb, 8oz - a bit smaller than DD1

 

Length: 21.5" - a smidge shorter than DD1

 

She'll have a full head of black hair.  I'm hoping it stays that way and doesn't lighten to medium brown like DD1's has done.  I'm also hoping for green eyes, although I guess I won't find that out right away.  I'd like to have at least one with my coloring.

December 28 at 2 am  (Mostly because if he isn't born yet, there's a darned good chance of me taking castor oil on the 27th.)

 

Male (but we know that)

 

Weight: 8 pounds, ish. The most hilarious weight would be 7 pounds 12 ounces, give or take 2 ounces. 

 

Length: 20 1/2 inches, plus or minus a half inch. 

 

I'm guessing medium brown duck fuzz hair, not totally bald, not super long, dark blue eyes that turn hazel later, and a not insignificant nose for a newborn. 

 

We have the genetics for: 

Straight or curly hair

Red or brown hair, but probably brown

Blue, brown OR hazel eyes (two blue-eyed grandmothers, one brown eyed and one hazel eyed grandfather, I have hazel green eyes and DH has brown)

 

DH was 6 1/2 pounds, give or take, I was 7 pounds 12 oz, DD1 was 7 pounds 11 1/2 oz, Sis was 7 pounds 10, but DD2 was 9 pounds 4 but had a chromosome issue. I'm also overweight, so guessing a little heavier. 

 

All that said, babies in recent years in our family ranged from 4 pounds at 37 weeks to 9 lb 4 at 41 1/2 weeks, so the long run of not-quite-8 pound babies born within a few days of the due date is in question. 


Jenrose, Mama to DD1, born 1993, DD2, born 2005, and DS1, Jan. 2012. Babywearing, cosleeping, homebirthing mom with fibromyalgia and hashimotos.  DD2 has a rare chromosome disorder.

I wanted to bump this as we're all getting close to the dates, to see how accurate our guesses were! And there's a few people that can enter in last minute guesses too!

I am guessing she will look like her sisters . . .all of my girls except one look very much alike.  They all have brown hair (some different shades, but none born with a lot) and brown eyes.  One has curly-ish hair and is a lefty, so I guess there are always little surprises!
