Put in here when you think you'll give birth and how big the baby will be. Then afterwards we can see how close we all were.

I'm guessing August 7th (that date just keeps sticking in my head)
7lbs 6oz
20.5" long

And maybe we can get this stickied for later?

ETA:
Baby was born Aug 5th and was 8lbs 5oz. I was way off! She's just different than my other two, I suppose.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

I honestly have no idea, but it would be neat if it were August 30th, since my other 2 sons are July 30 & October 30

Weight I'll wager around 8lbs 6ozs, Length 20 inches

This is so much fun

ETA: Elias was born 8/22/08, weighing in at 8lbs 4ozs, 20" long - I was darn close!!!!

Although I'm offically due on Sept 5th, I know that this baby will be born in August - everyone in my family is born in August. So...

August 29th (the only day that no one has already been born on)
A girl, born sometime in the evening, hopefully in water
8 pounds, 4 ounces, 23 inches long (I was 22 inches and I'm the shortest in my family now at 5'11"

July 30th (Due 8/8) at 5:30 am

7lbs, 4 oz

Not too long labor, not too painful but definitely a memorable experience.
Actual labor will probably start the night before but I want to hold out on going to the hospital for as long as possible

for real?!?! how big were your other kids? 8.5 and 22" is my average between my girls, so I am guessing my boy will be somewhat the same...

Due August 15

My guess:
Birthdate (if my placenta would just move away from my cervix): August 20th

Weight: 10lbs 14oz (his older brother was 10lbs 11oz - I'm being optimistic that this boy won't be over 11lbs)

Length: 21 inches

Lol...My kids so far have been
39 weeks 7 pounds 12 oz
38 weeks 7 pounds 14oz
36 weeks 7 pounds 0oz
35 weeks 6 pounds 3 oz
36 weeks 7 pounds 10oz

Hence why I say I cannot imagine having a baby over 8 pounds. but I think Kasey will take the cake and make it to 9 pounds
