*Due Date* and guess date and time: Jan 30th at 10 am. I delivered my first on my due date and my second 4 days late. I'm hoping for something new this time, maybe a couple days early!
Actual Birth Date and time:

Guess of hours in labor: 2 hours would be great, I hope it isn't any faster. My first was 4 hours of active labor, including 1 hour of pushing. My second was 21/2 hours of labor, including 15 minutes of pushing. I hope the midwife can get to the house on time!
Actual hrs in labor:

Guess of Gender: Oh, I don't know. I did a half ass sway for a girl, but it seems a lot less important now that I'm pregnant
Actual Gender of baby:

Weight and Length: 8 would be perfectly petite, around 20 inches long (wishful thinking)! DS #1 was 8.3 and DS#2 9.4lbs- hopefully not a trend!
Actual Weight and Length:

Oh, they all start out looking like mom and end of looking like dad. I hope this one looks like I was at least at the party!
Baby actually looks like:

Possible baby names: For a girl we like Mara Floriana. We are out of boys names:-)
Actual Baby name:

Any other predictions you would like to add: I'm hoping we win the lottery to pay for the homebirth that our stupid insurance won't cover!
