Actual- Mailman?  He doesn't immediately resemble either of us strongly. :-)  He looks a lot like his brother did when he was a newborn but they have totally different noses.


ETA - I should have added that "In my bedroom" meant on my bed.  Both my boys were born on my bed.  DS1 on my side and DS2 on DH's side.  I don't think I will *ever* be able to get rid of this bed. love.gif

Baby's birth date and time

Guess-EDD 7/17 but my mom always went a few days early so I'm guessing 7/12 at 1:30 am

Baby gender
Guess - Original guess was girl, but U/S says boy, so I guess I'm going with boy... I'm not entirely convinced though
Actual - Boy

Baby birth date & time

Baby's gender

Guess- BOY... U/S says it's a boy.

Actual- BOY,mom and u/s were right. 

 

Baby's birth date and time

Guess- June 26th

Actual- July 14th. 

 

Baby's weight and length

Guess-  7lbs 5ozs 20 inches long

Actual- 7lbs 8ozs 19 inches long

 

Place of birth

Guess- HOME in my craft room.

Actual- Home in my craft room in the birth pool I wasn't sure I wanted.

 

Lenth of labor

Guess- 4 hours

Actual- 2.5 :(  I really wanted a 4 hour less intense labor. 

 

Baby looks like mom/dad/mailman

Guess- Well U/S made it looks like he has dad's long face so I am hoping for dad overall cause my tiny features would look FUNNY with his daddy's long face.   But black hair like my older kids would be cool at birth.  Since both FI and I have brown hair it is possible.  My older kids have brown to black hair but it is funny knowing he could have blonde hair.   I hope not, I want him to fit in with his 1/2 siblings.

Actual- He looks a mix.  He lost the long face but is not as round as mine.   He has daddy long feet and big hands.   He has black hair.  He looks like big brother mostly.  (Who is a 1/2 brother)

It's neat to see how some of these panned out after baby was born. I'm off to see what I wrote (not that my baby is here yet). Oh well the 8th and 10th have come already and I think my baby will be more around 8 pounds 3 ounces or so and maybe be born on the 13th or 14th.
