Length of labor: hopefully *much* shorter than my first (47 hours!)... I'm going to say 12
Place of Birth: Home
Other details: UC either solo or with my chosen support people all present
I was right about gender but wrong wrong wrong about everything else.

Weight (lbs/oz): I am guessing nearly 8 pounds.

Baby Birthdate and gestation: I think she will be born on Valentine's Day-- right about her due date.
Time of day: At night or very early morning
Length of labor: 2-4 hours
Place of Birth: at home-- probably in the bathroom
Other details: I am hoping I can birth quietly and comfortably by myself in the bathroom, with maybe minimal help from dh. I will use my hypno cds and my aromatherapy and my birthing necklace. Then we can call the midwives, and the boys will wake up in the morning to meet their new sister. But we'll see what happens.
So, I was a little bit off on everything-- she was much bigger than I expected, at 9 pounds 1 oz, she was about 20 or 20.5 inches so that was close, she was born 6 days past her due date so that was off, I was off on the lenght of labor, although from transition to delivery it was WAY shorter than last time, but the first stage was longer. I DID give birth in the bathroom! Lol. just as expected. The birth was much different than I expected, it was not so quiet and comfortable. Actually it was pretty darn quiet, just not AS quiet as I had hoped for. The midwife was present and my DH, but I was glad they were there. I just wish it had been more comfortable!!!

Time of day: 11:15 AM
Length of labor: 5 hours
Place of Birth: birth tub in the spare bedroom
Other details: Both kids will be present, I'll catch baby, and I'll push for no more than 4-5 minutes.
What really happened:

Baby's gender: GIRL!
Weight (lbs/oz): 8 lbs 14oz (off by 1 lb!)
Length (in): 20.25 in
Baby Birthdate and gestation: February 17th (40w 5d) (almost 1 month off!)
Time of day: 7:45 AM
Length of labor: 5 hours (got that right!)
Place of Birth: birth tub in the spare bedroom (yep)
Other details: Both kids were still sleeping but they came in within minutes. DH caught baby. I pushed for a lot longer than expected - about 15 minutes - but I did it deliberately and it saved me from tearing.

I can't believe the baby came almost a month later than I thought it would.

Christine, mama to Ava (7.05), Alder (5.07), Sadie (2.09) and #4 due mid-July 2011!

Length (in): 21"
Baby Birthdate and gestation: 2-17-09 (40w4d)
Time of day: 10am
Length of labor: 6 hours
Place of Birth: home, downstairs
Other details: couldn't even guess- each of my births were totally different from each other, I have learned not to have too many expectations! I am just hoping for a longer, more leisurely labor than my last baby.
Actual:
Baby's gender: Boy
Weight (lbs/oz): 9lbs 14oz - I was under by 13oz.
Length (in): 21.75" - I was under by 3/4"
Baby Birthdate and gestation: 2-19-09 (40w6d) - off by 2 days, just barely
Time of day: 4am - guessed over by 6 hours
Length of labor: 1 hour 45 min- over by 4 hours
Place of Birth: home, downstairs
Other details: Delivered him standing up, on the same rug (covered!) that I delivered my older son on, 5.5 years prior. Was NOT a more leisurely labor.
