Sex (your guess or u/s result): Boy, no u/s -- Girl
What day will baby be born: May 5th -- May 16
What time baby will be born: 2am -- 3:45am
Length of labor: 2 hours -- 2 hours
Where: in the fishy pool at home -- in the fishy pool at home
Weight: 7lb 4oz -- 7lb 6oz
Length: 20 inches -- 19.5 inches

Special notes: I had three weeks of prodromal labor and then 4 hours of active labor last time... so I'm not sure if I'm looking at a longer labor or having the baby in the minivan while shopping for groceries. I had five weeks of prodromal labor, went one week overdue and then had a 2 hour labor. I am thrilled all around even though going overdue was mentally difficult, my labor was way intense and I was oh-so-wrong about gender. I'm in love.

What day will baby be born:[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]
May 12th.
May 16th.

What time baby will be born:
9am, I always seem to start labor in the early morning.
I did start labor in the morning, but baby was delivered at 2:30.

Length of labor:
3 hours total, :
4 1/2, pretty close.

Special notes:
I am visualizing that I have such a quick, easy labor that I have the baby at home, UA, w/dh (not exactly his ideal plan however!).
Not the birth I envisioned, but a positive birth experience despite everything. A healthy baby. A healthy mama. I feel blessed.

Happy mama of four Wild Things

Okay, here goes....

Sex (your guess or u/s result): u/s says boy and so does my gut BOY most definitely! LOL
What day will baby be born: May 9th May 10th
What time baby will be born: 5:42 am 9:25 AM
Length of labor: 4 hours/9 hours N/A (c/s)
Where: hospital Hospital (got this one right!)
Weight: 8 lbs 2 oz 8 lbs. 7 oz.
Length: 21 inches 22 inches!
Special notes:
I'm to have a scheduled c/s, but am making my doc schedule it for 41 weeks to let me go into labor naturally (DD was 5 days early, so hoping this stands true this time too). Then I may take my time getting to the hospital and see what happens when I get there. I guessed one time for early section and one for taking my time getting there... Had the scheduled c/s and was more sick from the spinal drugs than I thought I would be. Recovery otherwise wasn't bad!

P.S. -- maybe we should make this a sticky so it's always on top and easy to find???

Your Guesses...
Sex (your guess or u/s result): Boy! oh, boy!
What day will baby be born: May 20, or May 22...i felt strongly about an even #ed day with dd, but she was born on the 17th...go figure. i'm still thinking even #
What time baby will be born: evening...6pm
Length of labor:12 hours
Where: the hospital
Weight: 8lb 3 oz
Length: 20 in
Special notes: labor was nearly 30 hours with dd (12 of light labor, 18 active). hoping for a much shorter labor, but still long enough that i can adjust and cope,a nd spend lots of time in the tub. although a super short, not very painful labor would be wonderful!

ooh, this sounds fun!

Sex (your guess or u/s result): my guess is it's a girl..won't be having an u/s.
and we have a girl!

What day will baby be born: i'm thinking anytime between April 14-18 (edd is 5/14, but i went early last time, and i'm measuring ahead again)
totally got this one wrong. went 3 days overdue!

What time baby will be born: not sure on time, either, but i think it will be late evening/nighttime
well, kind of...4:40 a.m.

Length of labor: 5 hours
ha! got this one right!

Where: at home (in my bed)
ended up on the living room floor!

Weight: 7 lbs 12 oz.
totally off...9 lbs!

Length: 20 in.
nope. try 22 in.!

Special notes: labor with ds was 7 hours with a 20-min 2nd stage, so i'm shooting for a 5-hour labor with a similar 2nd stage hopefully i won't tear this time, though :

had my 5-hour labor with a similar second stage, but being much larger than her brother, and with a nuchal hand, it took a bit longer (ended up being more like half an hour), but no tears!!

successful #2 Jan. 25th - welcome Maisie Elise!

Sex (your guess or u/s result):
ehh...I didn't want to think about it too much. But this pregnancy is so different from both my last two. So....I'm going with a Girl
Its a Boy!

What day will baby be born: May 12th
April 18!

What time baby will be born: Crack o' Dawn--between 4:30 and 6:30am
I got this one right--4:54am

Length of labor: 2 hours
5 hours

Where: Home
Homebirth!!!!

Weight: 8lbs 3oz
6lbs 6 oz

Length: 21.5"
19.5"

Special notes: This is all based on what I've been thinking most of the time. But lately I've been getting the feeling that this babe is going to come early. Like EARLY early. I don't know why--ds1 was 2 days before his due date and ds2 was 8 days before his--totally acceptable ranges. I'm not sure if I'm just being paranoid or what. Time will tell.


umm I guess time did tell

Oooh, guessin'! Let's see...


My Guesses...

Sex (your guess or u/s result): I have no clue! We go back and forth. Right now I'm leaning pretty heavily toward girl. I have no idea why. Ask me tomorrow! Toward the end of the PG DH and I both started leaning pretty heavily toward boy and here he is.

What day will baby be born: May 3. Again . DH has been seeing triple numbers all over the place so... Wrong again!

What time baby will be born: I hope during a time when friendly staff is on! It feels like it will be during the daytime though. Milky Face came on into this world in the AM.

Length of labor: I want to say 12 hours. I'd been having prodromal labor for a few weeks but I started having a series of wake me up ctx. So from then till birth I'd say about 22 hours. I wasn't even sure I was in labor labor till about 11:30 or so.

Where: In the hospital. Maybe we'll have a "surprise" UC. No surprise UC (almost!) but shockingly enough the hospital staff pretty much left us alone thank God.

Weight: 7lbs, 6oz. Have no idea where that number's coming from. Well when he was 1st born they told us 7lbs, 6oz. Then a few hours later they told us 7lbs, 8oz.

Length: 21 inches. Another number out of nowhere. Close! 20 inches.

Special notes: :

I feel so blessed to have my son. We're just loving him up! It will be so interesting to see how round 2 is different!

This is a great idea! And yes, we should make this sticky so new joiners can post, too. How do we do that?

Sex: I've felt boy from the beginning. We're going to be surprised.
Well, not only were we not surprised (I caved to dh's desires at the 21 wk ultrasound) we had another girl!

When: May 23rd. I think I'll go a little later than dd because I'm terrified of two (well, no more than any other mom with a 2 yo, I suppose) and I don't want another Taurus man in my life. The only thing that's giving me pause is that there are a series of numbers that always show up in my life and 5 (May) is never one of them. Oh, well.
May 30th. I was right about one, thing, though. I was still terrified to have 2 kids and I really believe that's what made me go a week late. Once I resolved that I went into labor. And the number thing still has me wondering as her numbers don't add up to anything else in my life. I wonder if she was meant to be born on the 31st and I my interventions screwed that up? Not really worried about it at this point.

Time: 3:19 AM
4:45 AM

Length of Labor: 9 hours
Ha! Barely 5 hours. And only about 1 hour was hard work.

Place: Birth center tub (oh, I hope)
Yay! I love the tub.

Length: 20 inches
20 1/4

Weight: 8 lbs 3 oz
Oooh! I was close: 8 lbs 4 oz

Special note: Still visualizing my placenta moving up and up and up....
And it did, by 21 weeks. Anyone else worried about placenta previa, especially if it's diagnosed early on, know that it almost surely will move!

Special notes: Both of my babies have arrived "late" so I anticipate that again (DS was 12 days, DD was 2 days past due date). DSs labor was 40 hours and then a c-section. DDs labor was 30 hours unmedicated, so I'm hoping for about half that this time. I so envy you with 6-8 hour labors!!!!

Hi. In order to make it a sticky, we have to have someone PM a Moderator. I've looked but can't figure out who the Mod for this group would be. Anyone else know and want to send a PM? (then, can you let us know for future reference??)

Thanks mamas!

My Guesses...
Sex (your guess or u/s result): Um. I can't guess. I have no idea. I am thinking girl-thoughts, but I thought girl the whole time with DS and was WRONG! It's a Boy!
What day will baby be born: April 30 (don't know why, just DS was early and I counted backwards from my due date and that seemed like the place to stop!) Almost happened, but not quite - labor started May & baby was born May 2
What time baby will be born: Hmm. About 3 pm? Ha! Not! 6 AM
Length of labor: 11 hours. That's 1/2 of my labor with DS, which is how my mama's history reads. Try 6.5 = 1/4 of first labor!
Where: At home . . . somewhere I can get upright - like the middle of the living room - gotta get better curtains, though! On the bed!
Weight: Oh, I don't know! How about 7 lbs even? 7 lbs 9 oz & posterior & pushing still only took 10 minutes.
Length: 19"? 20"
Special notes: I'd love to have a quick labor in the middle of the night with DS sleeping through it and me and DH catching the baby with the midwives arriving too late. But I don't think that's very likely. Well, we got quick, middle of the night, and DS slept through most of it. The midwives did get there, which I was glad of, and *I* caught the baby!

Here as mama to W (2/04), R (5/06), D (7/09), and J (12/9/12!), co-parenting with my DH

I WOH part-time, am a doula & childbirth educator, home/unschool, and hope we are nearing the center of chaos

Looks like moderators for I'm Pregnant are laralou and Chanley... since the DDC are sub-forums of I'm Pregnant I guess we should PM them! I'll do that right now.

ETA: Thank you laralou for making this a stickified thread!

As this is a first baby, these guesses are probably way off!

Your Guesses...
Sex (your guess or u/s result): Will find out on Friday and post--feeling too nervous to guess! Little girl!
What day will baby be born: Friday Wednesday
What time baby will be born: 3:24 am 12:27am
Length of labor: over 12 hours (I've read that average first labors are 12 hours and for some reason I expect mine to be longer--perhaps significantly longer) 20 hours from when my water broke; 12 hours from when contractions started; 3.5 hours from when active labor started
Where: Birth Center : Birth Center
Weight: 6 lbs, 8 oz. (I was 6.11, dh was 6.2, and my niece was 6.6, so I'm thinking that we'll be in that range) 6 lbs., 4 oz.
Length: I dunno...how long is a baby? I guess I'll say 19". 20"
