What do you mean? My baby is "due" on August 6th, but I gotta say, I'm hoping he makeshis appearance sooner than that, like tomorrow...Not that I'm actually expecting that, but I'm still hoping for it.

If you are talking about when we think the baby will come, rather than our due date.....I'd guess August 1st or anytime that first week. I think I'm waaay too active to go past my due date. If I do go over, I'm sure I could find something to do that would speed things up.

I have no clue. No idea of LMP. No idea of conception date. Toward the beginning of the pregnancy I was guessing around the 23rd. At the time I couldn't imagine it had been THAT long since I had a period.

Now I'm thinking that there is no freakin' way this baby will stay in that long. Not with how we're feeling!

I'm gonna say.... Aug 9. Only God knows.

Well, I'm due the 12th, but I'm really hoping he'll make his appearance the end of this week (I'll be 37 weeks Friday), or next week.

Baby is due 8/30 according to my OB. Of course they base that on a 28 day cycle- I only have a 26 day cycle. My first baby was 1 week early and I think (know?) this baby will be 1-2 weeks early. My best guess is 8/19 (full moon) or 8/22 (22 is the only lottery number we play that has no significance...started buying lottery tickets when our first was born...)

So- only time will tell for me!

I'm due the 22nd, but I'm guessing "junior" will wait until his/her sister's birthday on 8/27. The first of many ways to get in her way.....

I really have no idea. I am due the 20th and my DD was two days after her date. So I think it will be pretty close to the due date. Although, as much BH and stuff as I have, and the pressure I feel already, I would be glad if he came like a week early.

I have a number in my head for his weight... 8lbs. 6 oz. but that is it. I guessed the weight right and my DH guessed the height right with DD.

I keep imagining it happening around the 19th or 20th, even though that's quite early!! A girl can hope!

I'd like her to arrive after next Tues when I turn 37 weeks. =)

I used to think she'd come late (at the end of August) but now I think she'll come earlier. I've some early labor signs -- loss of weight for one -- and would not be surprised to have her come late next week!

I find out today when my cerclage is being removed and I suspect that he will arrive shortly after that. My due date is 8/23 but I'm thinking more like the first week of August at the latest.

Who, me? :

Me and the kiddos already voted...between the 3 of us I hope somebody guessed close to the 9th! I don't remember my guess but I probably guessed toward the end of August or (gasp!) early Sept.! This was weeks ago though...I would guess differently now.

Well, I was induced w/ds at 38 weeks (PIH) so I have no idea w/this one. September 7 keeps popping into my head, but Wee Bitty's head is deeply engaged (they couldn't find it at first at my last appointment and were kind of freaking out, I was like, "Well, you've found it every other time, as it hasn't come out, I'm betting it's still in there) so I guess I could go early. I'm really kind of hoping to be one of those women who walks around at 6cm for a week or two completely oblivious - I can dream, right?

I'm due the 16th, but I have no idea when she'll actually be born. DD was a week early and I had no clue anything was going to happen until contrax started (although apparently i'd been contracting w/o me knowing it for the past few days - I had to get several NSTs and the contrax showed up on those). She's still pretty small (under 6 lb, approximately anyway) so if I had to guess I'd say she wouldn't come before Aug 1 or 2 (I'll be 38 weeks on Aug 2).

Sorta OT: my neighbor who said she'd watch DD during early labor said something like "Well, try to let me know a few days ahead of time if you know the baby's coming." ???? How am I supposed to know? I actually asked her that and she said I dont' know, I figure you've done it before so you might know. This is the same person who thought she was having indigestion, but it was really labor (she had twins)! I said thanks for having so much confidence in me, but I doubt seriously I'll know days ahead of time.....yeah, we'll be giving birth on Thursday, does that work for you? Lol.
