Check out the Sticky "Let's make predictions" if you don't remember your prediction.

Ha, I was totally delusional about my prediction -- I predicted I'd go almost a week before my edd, and she was born a week past it! Dh predicted her exact weight though.

"I have no clue either, but my wild guess is a girl, born on Oct. 10th, 7lbs 8 oz."

I was way off! DD was born Oct. 22, and was 8lbs 14 oz. I was right about the girl part though.

With DS, I had two dreams that he was a boy and with this pregnancy I had four dreams that she would be a girl...so I guess my dreams were accurate...I should have dreamt the date and weight.

I thought I'd go about a week early. But due to my complications I ended up going 2 1/2 weeks early. Fine by me at this was my hardest pregnancy yet!

Correct on the weight. Wrong on the gender and date. Well, you can't win 'em all.

I wasn't too far off really. I predicted;

The ultrasound says boy (showing his business VERY clearly). My DD is 10/16 (a bit later by dates), I am guessing he will show up around 10/20-10/24 and weigh between 8.5-9 lbs. He will probably be born at night sometime.

He was born 10/17 (a day after my due date), and weighed 9lbs 10oz. I was a little off on everything, but not too far. I was right that he was born at night (9:25pm).

It was really fun to look back and see what I thought was going to happen!

My prediction:
"boy, 9 lbs 8 oz or bigger, and longer than 21 inches, born Oct 3/4 evening/morning"

I was right on boy
I was right on 9 lbs 8 oz or bigger (he was 10 lbs)
I was right on longer than 21 inches (he was 22 inches)

I was wrong on the date. He was born on October 17th.

The u/s says girl. Oct 18th, 5:30am weighing in at 7lbs12 oz and 20 in.

Oh yes, the other plan is to labor by ourselves and the midwife shows up and an hour later she is born


So she's a girl born Oct 16th, 12:45am weighing in at 7lbs and 19 in. The midwife was here for 3 hours and I had her in the water, which was the plan I guess I was under on everything but how long the midwife would be here.

I didn't post my prediction on here, but my EDD was Oct 3 and my predication was Sept 27. Dunno why, I fixated on that date. He came exactly one week before my predication, on Sept 20. Two days before he was born I predicated he felt about 7 and a half and he was 7 five.

we predicted/requested Oct 30-Nov1, and she came Nov 1. She was also in the weight range i predicted, which was around 8 1/2 pounds. She was 8 lb 6 oz, and the midwives had guessed 7.5.

I voted other. This was a confusing intuition ride this pregnancy. I first thought 9-11 because that kept popping into my head. The way those numbers played out was that I called 911 at the end of my birth.

The next date I guessed was Nov. 3. I even had my daughter who is very intuitive write her guess down on paper and not share it with each other and we had both guessed that day. It turns out that Nov 1-5th was like an emotional birth for me. I worked through all of my issues and became totally emotionally ready for my baby to be born.

The next date I guessed was the 11th, but I also kept seeing the 22nd. So, I think that was because my husband was right that I did conceive in Feb regardless of when my last period was. He says she was 11 days early. She had not a single sign of being post dates. It would make more sense based on my last pregnancies as I have never gone past my due date. So, the 11th was correct and other dates were not but did have significance overall. She likes the number 11 obviously. I had gotten her weight wrong at first because I forgot to go back and subtract her clothes/diaper. Her actual weight was 8 lbs 11 oz. She was born at 11:11 pm. Etc.
