When I was pregnant with my first, the nurse in our prenatal class had us all vote on what we thought we were going to have, how much they weighed, date, etc... and surprisingly I was very close, almost bang on. It was fun to see afterwards what we predicted and how close we all were.

So shall we play?

I predict...

Boy
6 pds, 14 oz
Born September 22
at 9:32 am


Anything else?

You can always come back and change it (before your birth... )
if some epiphany comes over you!

Already know that he's a boy.
Weight: 7 pounds 8 ounces.
Not sure about the time of day or night.

20 inches...19 in
September 22 (one week late)...Sept 10, 5 days early
6:23 am (I really hope this one doesn't come true. I don't do well staying up all night long.)...12:58 and 28 hours...stayed up all night

No bris, obviously, but we agreed on her middle NAMES when the Rabbi came over to help us with the naming ceremony, so I was right with this, sort of.
