Huh...I guess my predictions were pretty accurate. I had Maria before her EDD as I thought I would -- 2 days after St. Patrick's Day (the day I guessed she'd be born).

I did have much shorter labor than I did w/ DS -- about 1/3 as long.

And I did have her in the bedroom, but didn't avoid back labor (grrrrrrr) and did have her in bed (on hands and knees though).

Getting MORE excited!

8.5 lbs or around 3.86 kg
21.25 in - 22.04 in or around 54-56 cm
Well, DH was asleep when it started, but I didn't count on my son waking up during my labor so I woke up DH. He caught our baby girl as I pushed her body out.

She was 4.57 kg and 54 cm long so I was right about the length, lol. (10.07 lbs)... strange factoid.. she arrived the same gestation age as my son did... 38 wks 6 days.

Since my previous labor was 28 hours, I'm cutting that number in half. I think I'll give birth either squatting or in a modified squat. I will make it to the hospital to deliver rather than the ferry like my family and friends think. And, I think my baby will be 100% healthy. And, I think my husband will do fabulously supporting me even though he's worried about it.
Well, everything here was just about right, except my daughter was born on 4/4 instead of 4/7. She was past her due date, just not as much as I thought. Fun stuff!!

All guessing.... I just hope he has a small head
nak

Well, I was a pound off, he was 7lbs 5oz. Labor was about 4 hours, so fast but not hard until transition, and even that was only 3 contractions. Dark hair & eyes. Time was way off, he was born at 1:07am. He was born on his due date, march 30th.

Dawn, mama to D (3.06) & N (9.07) C (11.09) & Still-in-shock surprise due in Aug!

Strangely, my in-laws have zero pictures of my baby husband so I have nothing to go on. The earliest one they could dig up he looks to be about 5 or 6. How weird is that?
I was totally wrong about everything other than he's a boy and he was small. He was only 6-6 and didn't really have a lot of hair, just a little bit, and he was a week early. He was pretty mellow until recently.

Baby girl will be 7lbs 1oz and 19 inches long. She will have a full head of dark hair that will stay dark and look more like me than her dad. She will be a calm, quiet, snuggly babe with big eyes.
Well...I went into labor around 9pm in the evening. Went to the hospital at 6am. Tub was not working and I gave birth on hands and knees. Labor was about 16 hours and pushing was about 10-15 minutes. Ember weighed 7lbs 13oz and was 20" long. She does have a full head of dark hair and looks more like me than her father. She is also a calm, quiet, snuggly babe with big eyes.

Wild how some of it came so true.

Close! 3/19, 19 hour labor (could be said to be 10 hrs if you count from when I decided I needed the midwife!), labored in the tub but chose the toilet at the end (birthed standing), 9lbs with quite a lot of blonde-red hair.

I think it will be a boy (but that changes every week or so!) and he will be born in the water.

I'm thinking 9 lbs 4 oz, have no clue about length, except the legs are feeling long! My midwife will be there just in time, after I have walked and labored only with my husband and mom for several hours. Despite the chaos of just having moved, it will be a smooth birth, very empowering! I think the pushing part will go quickly, and baby will be born with a full head of hair, and my husbands butt-chin (I hope!).
Well, I was a few days off, he was born on the 17th. I wasn't doing anything when contractions started, I had just woken up. It WAS a boy, he WAS born in water. I was 4 1/2 oz off, and pretty right on about the midwives getting there in time. I had labored for 6 hours, and they got there 3 hours before he was born, when contractions were 2 minutes apart (long transition). He does have a full head of hair, and my husbands chin!

Joshua was born March 2nd via c-section. He was 8lb, 14oz and 20.75 inches. He did have black hair, though, so I got that much right!
