Guess the weight and B-Day

So: what's your due date, when do you think you'll give birth and how much do you think the baby will weigh?

I'm due Oct. 1st, but I think I'll give birth before that (my mom was early with all four of her kids). So going to guess Sept. 28th with the baby weighing in at around 7.5 lbs.

Three more months and I'll know if I'm right.

Edit: also having good vibes about October 8th- which is a blood moon lunar eclipse.

I am due 10/6. I am going to guess 10/3 and 7lb 15oz. 3 months sometimes seems like an eternity and I consider pregnancy a dream.

Hmmm. This is my 4th and I've never given birth before 40 weeks, but I know I ovulated early in my cycle this time and my mid pg u/s confirmed this (baby was measuring ahead by 7-10 days in all areas). So, based on my LMP my EDD is 10/24. I'm going to guess 10/16 8lbs 5oz. Ironically 10/16 of last year was the date of my D&C for my missed miscarriage. Interesting!

DS1 2/08, DD 1/10, DS2 12/11...#4 due October 2014
Home schooling, home birthing, breastfeeding, bed sharing family!

DD was six days late and weighed 6lb, 15oz. Of course, I was SURE she would come early, so I started maternity leave at 38 weeks and just sat around twiddling my thumbs for three weeks. My due date is 10/28, so I'm going to guess 10/31 (Halloween baby!) and 7lb, 8oz.

@lilitchka , why would you prefer a September baby?

I'm due 10/12, and I'll guess she'll be born on, oh, 10/5, weighing 8 pounds even.

My son was around 10 days early and 7 pounds 3 oz at birth. Not that it really matters, but I really wanted to make it to 39 weeks with him. So that's where I'm casting my hopeful vote for this baby.

Me: 31 Copilot: 37
Our son Darwin: 3/25/11
Expecting #2 in October... it's a girl!
We are an extended-breastfeeding, baby-wearing, sleep-sharing, real-food family.

This is fun
My first two boys were 10 and 7 days early. Pretty sure ovulation was early with this boy as well...so.... Official dd is 10/31 and I am guessing 10/23 weight 6 lb 8oz.
I love summer so much, so hate to rush things, but I feel like I've been prego for evvver. Oct. Feels sooooo far away.

My first was a week early and my second was nearly a month early; but when I imagine giving birth, I always picture him coming right on time. So I'm guessing 10/15, weighing 8+10.

@HappyCianci : my DH has an October birthday....and I like that each family member has his own month. But since DH's birthday is early october, they might have the same BDay with baby.

I'm due October 1. Guessing baby will come Oct 4. (The Saturday after my due date, just like ds - I guess I'm having a hard time imagining things being different!) I'm guessing 8 lb 5 oz. This baby measured much smaller (though right on for dates) at our 20 week ultrasound than ds did, so I'm guessing it's a girl and will be shorter/lighter than ds.

Interesting so many are guessing early thus far. If this baby knows what's good for him/her, they'll stay put until October. We already have 4 family birthdays in September - 2 of dh's siblings, 2 of mine - so we don't need another one!

Due date is October 24th, but my brother and I were both 5 days early so I think mine will be too. So, I am guessing October 19th and 7lbs 2oz, the same size my brother was when he was born.

yes, and I am one of those guessing earlier than due date.....but statistically speaking, only 50% of us will give birth before due date!

My two sons each arrived "late" - with #1 , I was induced at 42 weeks, and #2 came on his own at 41+5. So I'll be shocked if this one is on time or early! I'm due Oct 22, so she may well not show up till November.

But I still want to be optimistic, so I'll guess the 29th, and 8 pounds even. (My boys were 9 lbs 4 oz and 8 lbs 9 oz.)

DS measured big at all his ultrasounds, and was 8.5lbs and 2 days "early". This baby measured a little behind until the last ultrasound at the beginning of the month where she measured a week ahead... I had been thinking she would be smaller than DS, but maybe not! EDD is Oct 12 (but I know I ovulated 2-3 days earlier than the Dr's chart would say, but I'm not gonna tell the doctor that, and have them move the EDD up! i want to give myself as much time as possible before anyone starts talking induction!).

I'm going to say 8lbs even and Oct 6.

I have absolutely no idea, since this will be my firstborn. But guessing is fun, so I am going to guess around 8 lb, maybe slightly under. My due date is October 14, but I am thinking it will either be October 8 or October 13.

Fun idea! Hmmm. I'll go with September 29th and baby boy will be 5 lbs 7 oz and baby girl 4 lbs 11 oz. She's been measuring behind him ever since week 6. I'd love for them to make it past the average 35 week for twins, which would be Sept. 16th. Our MFM doesn't suggest going past 38 weeks, which is Oct. 8 because placenta effectiveness decreases drastically after 38 weeks with twins. I'm ok with that.

This is so fun!

This is my first, and I have a feeling I will go long (official due date is October 12). I am guessing October 18 and around 8 1/2 lbs. Also, because we don't know – I am guessing girl!

I'm having fun reading everyone's guesses, so I'll join in! Even though this is also my first, so I really have no idea at all...
I'm due October 13 and I feel like I SHOULD guess late, but I am going to guess a couple days early, so October 11. And I'll say 7 1/2 lbs.

Hi! (I'm new!)

My due date is October 17th. At first, I thought he or she would arrive earlier (October 2nd), but now I am thinking more around October 31st.

And as for a weight guess... I am just hoping for a healthy 7 1/2 pounds.

Monkeyscience, I think that's interesting, because I'm due on the 4th, but I've been hoping for the 1st!

Also, two of my nephews have birthdays in Sept. Both claimed that the baby is not 'allowed' to be born in Sept. The younger one, 9yr, apparently thought I could control when she comes, because 'it's my body'. That was funny to me, I thought he knew, I had to explain that I can't choose when she decides to come. And.....really I just want to make it to Oct, I don't much want her born in Sept. either. My mom wants her to be born on Oct 11th, (her birthday), but I don't because, like WifeofAnt said, I'd never hear the end of it.

As for weight, I asked all the women in my family, and they've all had small -5lb to 6lb+ babies, but they also all smoked cigs, and I don't, so I'm hoping for around 8lbs.

Fun game! My due date is Oct. 31. I'm guessing the 25th, and 8 lbs, 4 oz. No idea, really, of course. I say the 25th, because my others are Feb. 25 and May 25, so that would make things simple. My last baby was 8 lbs, 6 oz. My first was 6 lbs, 14 oz, but she was induced and I think should have cooked another week or so, plus I was so sick in the 2nd trimester, I lost 15 lbs. I think that contributed to her small size, too.
