I figured we needed to start a thread with our birth and gender predictions b/c we're all fast approaching the 2nd trimester. If you post to the thread with your guesses I'll compile the lists in this first post so it can be easily referenced. I'll update with u/s gender results, too. It will be fun to see how right on/far off we are! Hopefully it can be stickied.

Without further ado...the questions...

Gender: girl
Weight: 7 lbs maybe plus 2-3 ounces
Any other predictions:
I am REALLY hoping I am right-on the date cause it would be WAY cool if the baby shared my mom's b-day Pregnancy reminds me more of DS than DD.
I would also like to add that while I'd love to have a waterbirth, as I have read more about it taking an hour or so to fill a tub, my prediction is that I will spend the money, rent the tub, and the baby will be born before I get in it! Though I will TRY to manifest this NOT happening. (My entire labor with DD was 5 hours....from the first "is this B-H AGAIN?" to birth)

And this baby will have a Mongolian birthmark (a bruise-looking mark common in biracial babies) somewhere on/near her butt because both my other kids do.

These are just my predictions, other than my EDD I am purely guessing at the other info.

Username: justme&my3+1
EDD: 10/20/08
Home, Birth center, Hospital: Hospital 4th c section
Length of labor: none really (not that I wouldn't like to experience it)
Birth date and time: 8:30 AM 9/14/08 I went into labor around 26 weeks with all mine and they couldn't stop my last who was over 6 weeks early.
Gender: Twins boy and girl (I will find out next month) if not twins then boy
Weight: If twins, around 6 lbs each, if a singleton and early 7ish lbs if term then over 9 lbs. (I have big babies)
Any other predictions: I am not going to make it to my scheduled c section and go into labor before. I also think I will end up not having anyone there when the baby/ies are born.

Both of my labors were 11 hours and one kid was 7, 9 and the other was 7,7, so I almost feel like I'm cheating. But of course things could change drastically!
