EDD: 1/19/09
Baby's gender: REALLY hoping and praying for a girl
Weight (lbs/oz): hoping for 8lbs, let's say 7lbs 14oz
Length (in): 22 (DS was 19 1/4 at 35 weeks)
Baby birthdate and gestation: December 29th, 37 weeks
Time of day: 3pm
Length of labor: 4 hours (DS was a little over 5)
Place of Birth: Home :
Other details: DS was a 5 hour pit-induced labor, but my water broke that morning on its own. I don't think they ever turned my pit up very high. Honestly I'd love a longer labor, as a 5 hour labor is REALLY intense. I'd love to be able to walk around, visit with my MIL and best friend who will be here, and ease into the process.

Momma to DS1 4/5/06 nursed with IGT to self-weaning at 27 months, DS2 1/20/09 still nursing, DS3 due late November - planning to tandem with IGT and SNS

Baby's gender: one of each
Weight (lbs/oz): 6 lbs, 2 oz, 5 lbs. 14 oz.
Length (in): 19" each
Baby birthdate and gestation: 37 weeks gestation (also hope to get in the calendar year for taxes and insurance deductables)
Time of day: 4:32P and 4:34P (this is the most random question)
Length of labor: hopefully shorter than last time. About 10 hours.
Place of Birth: Hospital
Other details: Planning on a vaginal birth, not a C-section unless, when the time comes, the babies are upside down and sideways to make a vaginal delivery impossible.
I already have revisional guesses. DH is working through the 21st so I'm hoping they don't come until the 22nd or later. I'm going with the karma of 22nd, 2-two's, two babies, 2nd night of Hanukkah. The karma of 2's.

And i know they're both over the weight I guessed.

We'll see how we do with the rest of the predictions.

Baby birthdate and gestation: Dec 17th--37 weeks, 5 days

Length of labor: 5 hours
Place of Birth: in the registration hall :
Other details: I'll have just arrived, crowning, at the hospital because things are moving so fast and I'll feel the urge to push and slide down to the floor, reach down and catch my own baby.
That's exactly the way I'm hoping to deliver or just right there in the ole ER
