Hi all,

I'm KLTroy's mom and I love numbers! Here are some more for you.

For those of you who listed a specific due date (and not counting the twin mamas):

* 4 of you gave birth more than 3 weeks before your due date
* 3 of you gave birth more than 2 and up to 3 weeks before your due date
* 13 of you gave birth more than 1 and up to 2 weeks before your due date
* 21 of you gave birth up to 1 week before your due date

* 6 of you delivered on your due date (about 5% of babies come on their due date)

* 18 of you gave birth up to 1 week after your due date
* 6 of you gave birth more than 1 week and up to 2 weeks after your due date
* 1 of you gave birth more than 2 weeks after your due date

For those of you who provided baby weights:

* The smallest baby was 4# 14 0z (born 36 days early). The biggest baby was 11# 6 oz (born 9 days late).
* 1 of your babies weighed between 5 and 6 lbs.
* 8 of your babies (including twins) weighed between 6 and up to 7 lbs.
* 23 of your babies (including twins) weighed between 7 and up to 8 lbs.
* 13 of your babies weighed between 8 and up to 9 lbs.
* 10 of your babies weighed between 9 and up to 10 lbs.
* 2 of your babies weighed between 10 and up to 11 lbs.


Congratulations to you all!!!

How about how many were delivered unassisted by Dad! At least three that I know of off the top of my head.

So amazing when it's broken down like that--all the healthy, wonderful deliveries and babies and mama's. Birth is awesome!

Midwife apprentice and mama to 6, including three UC babies: Jude River, 06/04/08, Elora Wren Isolde, 9/27/10, and our newest addition, Eilish Neve Isebeul, 6/12/14!

Ahh yes the 3 UCs that I know of were included in the homebirth list. It would be fun to have a tally of who caught the babies... you, DH, doc/MW or other?

It would've been 7 if my little one hadn't arrived on her late great grandmother's birthday! Instead we went with Lucia for my nana...
