Sex of baby: I'm guessing : because of all of the boy dreams I've had so far. And most likely because DH is : : : for a boy
Due date: Early May
Date baby born: May 7
Where: At home in the water
Length of labor: 7 1/2 hours (wishful thinking after my 37 hour labor with dd)
Weight: 9 pounds exactly
Length: 21 1/2 inches
Other: I think I will have a lot of prodromal labor around the 1st of May due to the full moon.

Sex of baby (and put if it's guess or U/S): Ummm...geez. My dreams keep tricking me. I wont have any u/s. Let's say big surprise. I have no intuition!!! I think b/c I just REALLY want it to be surprise!

Length of labor: 4 hours (we always tell mamas to cut the firts labor in half.) I'm a helluva a good baby haver!
Weight: Between 9 and 10 lbs
Length: 21 1/4 in (just cause that's what DS was)
Other: I am bad at guessing b/c I don't like to, so sorry for my lame answers. I just like being surprised. Oh! And I feel my pushing stage will be short. I pushed DS,9lb1oz out in 11 minutes. Holla. I just wonder if he/she will look like DS. DS was so cute! He's the only newborn(like fresh from the oven) I've ever seen stick his little bottom lip out when he cried at birth.

I was a bit closer here... I should have listened to my gut from day one and stuck with the May 5 feeling I had from the moment of ovulation
Where: hospital
Length of labour: NOT short (80+ hrs) and NOT easy (really hard painful back labour for more than 30 of those hrs)
Other: my mom was super supportive and MIL showed up 3 days postpartum

Well, it was a girl. She was born May 31 in the hospital (just barely). Total length of labor was just under 6 hours, but I only knew for sure I was in labor for the last 2 hours of it. She was 7 lb 14 oz and 20.25 in long.
