While we're waiting around, most of us anxious as can be, I wondered if you'd like to play a game with me?

Guess if your little one will be born:
early
within 2 days of your EDD
or late

Tell me what your EDD is too.

I'll keep a list going through the month and we'll see who's right.


"Early"

rockportmidwife (1/10)...(born 1/8) :
katmann (1/10)...(born 1/12) :

Mrs.Oz (1/18) (born 1/17) :
mommyfied (1/18) (born 1/18) :

MeadowAndColtsMama (1/28) (born 1/22) :
Kimmiepie (1/30)...still waiting?
Jannah6 (2/7) (born 1/20) :



Within 2 Days of EDD

Hmmm, I'm going to say within 2 days of EDD, which is 1/8. Maybe that's just wishful thinking though!

I'm going to say early. My EDD is 1/11 but I honestly cannot imagine my body will make me go through that much longer. Not to mention this baby is huge. I'm hoping to go before Tuesday so I can be convenient for the midwife.

ETA: Just curious, is anyone actually going to say they're going to go late? After all, we don't want to give those babies any ideas, do we?

My EDD is 1/10, but I think that I will go on the 6th, so put me in the early category.

Actually, I'm guessing my "within 2 days" will be after my EDD. I'm just hoping she proves me wrong by coming early, not late. I'm just so anxious, uncomfortable, and historically have big babies (9.6 and 10.3). I'd like a successful HBA2C this time!

Thanks for playing everyone!

My EDD is 1/10, and I will say early. That might be mostly excitement about meeting our baby, but that's my guess anyway.

I should probably be doing something else right now.

my edd is 1/19, and i can't believe i'm still pregnant! we had lots of "textbook" indications that she might show up early, but now she seems pretty comfy in there! let's still say EARLY, but maybe only a week or so.

My due date is 1/29 and I'm going to guess late. Baby is measuring rather small so I think the extra time will be good for it.

My EDD is January 28th, but as I'm measuring 2 weeks ahead I will guess I will go early. Also because of PRESSURE! Let's see! Fine with me.:

I'm due on the 10th and I've always gone late, so I'll guess late again.
Although the full moon on the 10th could mean good things.

First baby, due 1/27. I've been measuring on the big side, but I still think she's going to be late...not a lot late, but maybe 4-5 days. We'll see!

Update: WRONG. Ruby was born at 3:27 AM on 1/26. Hooray!

Fun post. I am going to guess within 2 days of EDD. At least that is what I am hoping for! I have so much I need to finish, both at work, at home (construction projects) and with the baby stuff (need to get it organized!)

So, I'm really hoping this little guy comes close to the due date!

When is your EDD?

I know what you mean about having so much more to do! Good luck to you! I've gotten a lot done and at this point would just rather have the baby than finish the rest! I'm too exhausted anyway!

I will guess that I'll be late. My due date is 1/27. My menstrual cycle was very irregular before I got pregnant, going anywhere from 30 to 40 days. And, my baby at week 37 is small according to u/s (which really doesn't mean anything, I know). This is why I think I might be delivering late.

updated 1/29 - Unless I deliver today, chances are I am right in my guess about being late. Trying all sorts of natural induction tricks and waiting!!!

I've had a feeling this one will be early but really didn't want to commit to it and jinx myself like last time. What's weird is that ever since I found out I was due in January, the 10th has kind of been in the back of my mind like a little nagging thought that won't go away. Oddly, I've had some early labor symptoms the last two days (but who puts stock in those after so many rounds of start-stop ctx?) and as of today have felt really ready for her to arrive. Up til this point, every time ctx would start, part of me was thinking "oh no, not yet" due to having to care for DS and a DH who is battling depression. I've felt really overwhelmed up until today...somehow it seems ok now. So, I'm going to go with the 10th, even though it's tomorrow. If it's not tomorrow, I haven't a clue. Due on the 18th, FWIW.
