birth date: August 5th or 11th (I've gone back and forth on this one!)
birth duration: twelve hours from first contraction to babe in arms
birth time: between 10am and noon
sex: boy
weight: 9lbs 2oz
length: 21"

DD1- 32+ hours of unmedicated labor ending in a c/s at 42+ weeks. She was 9lbs 4oz and 21 inches and her time of birth was roughly 4pm.
DD2- 12 hours from contraction to babe with 4 hours of pushing at 40wks and a few days. She was 9lbs even and 21 inches and her time of birth was just before noon.
Well... I got some things right!
birth date: August 22nd (only 11 and 17 days off from my guesses)
birth duration: ~3 weeks of prodromal labor, ~4 hours of active labor (so "not 12")
birth time: 3:23am (though my guess had been morning so it's close, right?)
sex: boy
weight: 9lbs 8oz (so 6oz bigger than my guess)
length: 21.5" (half inch longer than my guess)
