I saw this in the Dec 2008 DDC and even though it is so early for us I thought it would be fun. Maybe we could make it a sticky and have the real stats posted next to the predicted ones?

Here it is:

EDD:
Baby's gender:
Weight (lbs/oz):
Length (in):
Baby birthdate and gestation:
Time of day:
Length of labor:
Place of Birth:
Other details:

Fun!

EDD: 1.4.09
Baby's gender: male
Weight (lbs/oz): 7lbs, 3 oz.
Length (in): 19
Baby birthdate and gestation: 1.7 - 40 weeks and a couple days
Time of day: morning
Length of labor: very fast, under six hours
Place of Birth: hospital
Other details: We stay at home so long, we barely make it to the hospital and MW scolds me!


With DD, I ws Pit induced and went from 100% and 4 cms, never feeling a single contraction or BH, to 10 cms in an hour, had the baby in just under two hours. On the lowest available dose of Pit.

So a very quick labor is probably in the cards for me.

A girlfriend I've known for years always thought we'd be PG together - we were she has a little girl a couple months older than my DD. Guess what? She's PG again, and so am I! Again, she's a little further ahead, and her US last week showed boy! For a variety of reasons I'm thinking boy.

Mine:

EDD: 1-3-08
Baby's gender: Boy
Weight (lbs/oz): 8lbs, 1oz
Length (in): 18in
Baby birthdate and gestation: 12-21-08 (tax purposes, eek! lol) 38 weeks gestation
Time of day: noon
Length of labor: 10 hours
Place of Birth: birth center
Other details: I won't realize I'm in real labor until my water breaks and then I'll think I have a long time left to go when I hit transition, freak out and yell to go to the birth center. That will be around 8 hours and I'll still have another two hours of pushing to go. Just when I'm sure I'm going to give up, he'll pop out and I'll be feeling his head and catch him.

Fun one Vicki!! I get to do some double work since I'm having twins here.

EDD: 1/9/09 but with twins probably around 12/20/08
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 was right!

Weight (lbs/oz): 8lbs. 2 oz.
7lbs. 9oz

Length (in): 21"
20.5

Baby birthdate and gestation: Jan 8, 09 - 40w6d
Dec. 31 - 39+5

Time of day: 12:45 a.m.
5:29 a.m.

Length of labor: 2 hours active, but several hours prodomal.
May have been closer to 3 hours of active labour.

Place of Birth: Hospital with midwife
Yep. I was open to home birth, but we went to the hospital due to PIH.

Other details:
She came earlier than I think she would have if left to her own devices. She was born after two membrane sweeps done in an attempt to avoid an induction due to PIH. She was born about 3 hours before I would have been induced. Good girl!! :

Baby's gender: Boy - Boy!
Weight (lbs/oz): 8 lbs, 11 oz. - 8 lbs, 3 oz.
Length (in): 21.5" - 21.25"
Baby birthdate and gestation: Jan 11, 2009 - 40w, 3d - Jan 9, 2009 (40w, 1 d)
Time of day: 8pm-ish - 3:40 am (but labor started around 8:30 pm!)
Length of labor: 14 hours - 7 hours!
Place of Birth: home, bedroom, on or by the bed - the side of the bed
Other details: I'll get woken up at 6am with contractions and be really cranky about not getting enough sleep! We'll run out of hot water for the pool, or it'll spring a leak, or the faucet attachment won't work, or it'll deflate, or some other glitch will happen that makes it impossible for me to use the pool. - well, the pool did get a leak but we fixed it. But, when I finally got in, I only made it through a couple contractions before I had to get out because it wasn't comfortable at all, and when I got out, I started feeling pushy. Maybe it accelerated things?

I have a new prediction, from closer to the end:

EDD: 1-3-08
Baby's gender: Female
Weight (lbs/oz): 7lbs, 0oz
Length (in): 19"
Baby birthdate and gestation: Dec 17th--37 weeks, 5 days
Time of day: noon
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.

I wasn't here for the original posting of this, so I am glad that you bumped it.

Baby's gender: I am guessing girl
Weight (lbs/oz): 8lbs 5oz.
Length (in): 21 1/2"
Baby birthdate and gestation: I am going to cheat a little. I don't have a date for it yet, but the first time that SO gets a 3 day weekend. (Happens about every 6 weeks.)
Time of day: 3:40 am or pm
Length of labor: Originally I was saying over 24 hours, but now that my best friend moved 7 hours away I think that she will not make it in time.
Place of Birth: in my birth pool
Other details: My kids and SO will be here, but not necessarily my MW
