Your baby is nice and comfy tucked away in your womb and has no interest in joining the rest of the world. We predict your baby will be born after its due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 6.0 pounds and that your labor will be about 12 hours long.
Hmmm... I suspect they are right on the late babe-I'd like a slightly shorter labor though, and I really doubt I will have a six pound post-dates babe!

After a labor lasting approximately 9 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 6 pounds, 7 ounces, and will be 19-1/2 inches long. This child will have blue eyes and be completely bald.
This sounds a little more useful I wouldn't mind a 9 hour labor,and 6lbs 7 sounds about right. I suspect they are wrong on the baldness, and I'm pretty certain they are right on eye color.

What she senses for you
The day you deliver, outside will be sunny. Your baby will arrive in the afternoon.

After a labor lasting approximately 16 hours, your child, a boy, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 8 pounds, 14 ounces, and will be 17 inches long. This child will have dark brown eyes and some blond hair.

But there is more. Although you may feel tired, your pregnancy will be over before you are truly ready to let go of having this precious baby you have all to yourself. I sense that you will look back and long for these days. I suggest doing something now to preserve some memories of this time. Many women enjoy making a belly cast. Perhaps you would be interested, too.

This is what I got on the latest one posted by njbeach. Of course this is all fun, but this one can't be correct.

I've delivered 3 babies, 2 weeks early and under 7.3 pounds, and 1 baby 2 weeks late and he was only 7.12 pounds. And, we know this one is coming at least 2.5 weeks early. So I just don't think it can be accurate. Oh, and all of em had blonde hair, but none of them had or has dark eyes. Oh and 17 inches is really really short for a 9# baby, right? I mean all 4 of mine were 18-19 inches. Still fun tho.

Alright, whose got another one we can all do???

Oh, crap!!!!!

According to Madame Zaritska...

What she senses for you
The day you deliver, outside will be sunny. Your baby will arrive in the early evening.

After a labor lasting approximately 3 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 8 pounds, 4 ounces, and will be 20-1/2 inches long. This child will have green eyes and a lot of hair.

But there is more. I sense that you feel somewhat alone. Have faith; you are not alone. Why don't you visit the message boards and talk to other expectant mothers? I'm sure you will find you have much in common.


Sunny? In Texas in early July? Yeah, I'm sure it will be. (Unless it was like last year, where it rained for three months straight, but that's pretty unusual.) Early evening would certainly be unusual - every one of my children was born in the morning, except for one early afternoon... well, two, I guess. DS2 was 5 minutes after noon.

A three-hour labor?? Are you KIDDING??? My shortest was 7 hours, induced at 42 weeks. The next was 16 hours. That was okay. Then there was a 27 hours, kind of grueling since it was induced. The first ever was 31 hours, not too bad for a first-timer. Then my grand finale of 105 hours, let's NOT repeat that, thank you! But 3 hours? I am not sure I'd make it to the birth center in time!!

A lot of hair, definitely. All of my kids have full heads of hair. 20-1/2 inches, sounds about right, too. The green eyes may pose a bit of problem... DH is latino. I am red-haired with pale skin. *I* have green eyes, but the other two kids I've had with him have those deep, dark brown eyes. Green eyes would be an anomaly. Usually green eyed kids have to have TWO green eyed parents, right?

And then there's the issue with the 8lbs, 4 oz. Um... I don't think so. I am 4'10", I weigh usually around 92 pounds pre-pg, and my kids have all been solidly between 6lbs 8oz, and 7lbs 4oz. (I thought that last one was going to tear me in half.) An eight-pounder with a three hour labor?? Someone just shoot me now.

I am somewhat alone, though. If not followed by the plug for the message boards, I would be pretty touched by her random observation!

They just average out everything from your previous birth histories. Here's what I got:

I know you were hoping we weren't going to say this, but don't expect this baby to come early. Your baby is nice and comfy tucked away in your womb and has no interest in joining the rest of the world. We predict your baby will be born after its due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the afternoon. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 9.0 pounds and that your labor will be about 5 hours long.

I disagree with all of it. Ds1 was 8.5lbs, and ds2 was over 9 and ds3 was closer to 9.5 (so I put 8.5, 9, and 9.5.) So they predict 9 for this baby, b/c that's the average. Ds1 has a different dad, so I predict this baby will be around 9.5, around what ds2 and ds3 were b/c they have the same genes from BOTH parents. As for my labor, 4 hours ds1, less than 2 for ds2, 8 for ds3. Ds3 wasn't positioned well when labor started, so it took a while. When he finally moved, my labor went FAST. My midwife told me she had expected me to have less than an hour or 2 long labor w/ him, and that's what I should expect w/ the 4th, IF he/she is in a good position when labor starts. Position affects labor a lot. They say baby will be born in the afternoon, b/c dh, ds3, and I were all born in the afternoon. WHat does that have to do w/ it? 2 out of my 3 were born in the morning, so that makes it more likely that I will have another morning baby, IMO. What does my MIL's birth experience have to do with mine? My body affects how I labor, not the baby's genes. Yes, my dh's babies are BIGGER b/c of genes, but that has nothing to do with how my body labors. A better thing to factor in for duration and time of labor is how does my sister labor? She also has very fast births and most of her kids were born in the early morning/middle of the night.

Just about the time you think you can't handle hearing one more "when is that baby going to pop?", your baby will decide to make it's appearance. We predict your baby will be born 3-7 days before its due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the afternoon. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 8.2 pounds and that your labor will be about 11 hours long.
Well, that's a good guess. I s'pose we'll see, huh? I'll subscribe to this thread, and after the baby's born, we'll see just how accurate they are.

I definitely welcome the 12 hour labour. Sure beats the 47 hour labour I had with DS. :

Baby was born one day after his due date...

...at roughly 3:00pm...

Quote:

...he weighed 8lbs...

...and it took him about 10.5 hrs of labor to get here!! That was pretty cool! Anyone else?

I got exactly the same one as you!
Pretty accurate, too. Zoe's weight was 6 pounds 12 ounces, and the labor was 19 hours long, so 6 longer than the prediction. She did come early.

The only accurate things from these predictions was the first one saying that I would be "overdue" and the second one saying that I would have a girl. I so wish I could have had a six hour labour, as opposed to a two week labour with a six hour pushing stage!
