I'm sticking with my guess, although I may change the time to early in the a.m. instead of the p.m.

I just looked at my guess, and I see that it is for today! Considering the fact that I have had my water broken for almost 48 hours and I'm up with contractions, I'd say I have a decent shot of having the baby on the day I guessed. However, I have 3 hours until the time, and I think that maybe that is not going to happen

Birth time: Probably something like 5am.

Gender: male. We knew this tho.

Weight:7lb 8oz? ish? dd was 7#1oz

Length:21in (dd was 20.5)

Hmmm...I missed this the first time around.

My guesses:
Birth date: August 7th

Birth time: No idea. Ummm... 3 pm

Gender: Boy (we know this)

Weight: At least 8 lbs. My weight gain is so different this time (and my eating habits so much better) that I'm not sure what to guess. All three so far have been a bit over 8 lbs though.

Length: 21 1/2"

OK, I was way off on the date at time. He was born on 7-17-09 at 8:42pm (labor was much faster than I expected). However, I was only 2 ounces off for weight (8 lbs, 6 oz), and I was right on for height!

Well, I was right on the gender! But actual stats were July 7th (so only 3 days off), time was 1:30pm, and she only weighed 7lbs, a full 3lbs 10 oz lighter than ds2! Oh, and 20", so close there. My boys were 21 and 21 1/2!

Happily married to my dh, mama to ds1 (01/2005), ds2 (07/2007)  and dd (07/2009).
