Marylizah Ok, at 39 weeks I'm ready to play.

Sex (your guess or u/s result): I just decided yesterday that I think it's a girl.

What day will baby be born: Hoping for May 7

What time baby will be born: 5:30am

Length of labor: 12 hrs

Where: Birth clinic

Weight: I'm thinking 8+ lbs

Length: 20 in

Special notes: I'm expecting lotsa hair, and that despite DH's firm assertion that he will NOT cut the cord, I'm guessing he will. I'm also really hoping DC will be born when the mw we love is on duty.

nova22 Your Guesses...
Sex (your guess or u/s result): My guess is Boy
What day will baby be born: Thursday, May 19 (wishful thinking maybe...that's a week early, lol...it's the first date that popped into my mind)
What time baby will be born: 9:46am
Length of labor: 4-5 hours
Where: Hospital
Weight: 7 lbs 8 oz
Length: 21"
Special notes: I think it will be another mad rush to the hospital! However, if it looks like things are going quickly, I probably won't go to the hospital at all. It depends on if DH is here or not!

Edited to say ~ oops, Thursday is the 18th, not the 19th...My "day" guess is Friday, 5/19.

-------------------------------------

Okay, baby is here...let's see how I did

Sex (your guess or u/s result): My guess is Boy - nope, girl!
What day will baby be born: Thursday, May 19 - not even close - 6/1
What time baby will be born: 9:46am - 1:30pm
Length of labor: 4-5 hours - 10 hours!
Where: Hospital - yep
Weight: 7 lbs 8 oz - I WISH! 9lbs.3oz
Length: 21" - 19.5"
Special notes: I think it will be another mad rush to the hospital! However, if it looks like things are going quickly, I probably won't go to the hospital at all. It depends on if DH is here or not! - nope, it wasn't the huge rush we thought it would be. In fact, things puttered along for a while because of a cervical lip that wouldn't budge. DH was there, though, and that's the important part!!!

gnutter I have been so wrong with my other two-so here goes


Your Guesses...

Sex : boy (according to US)

What day will baby be born:May 1st
may 4th

What time baby will be born: just in time for lunch
3 a.m.

Length of labor: 5 hours
try 24 hours!!!

Where: at home
hospital transport!!!!!!

Weight: 8 lbs
9lbs 4 oz

Length: 21 inches
22 inches

Mom_on_the_move My Guesses...
Sex (your guess or u/s result): Girl (u/s results) She was a girl... Hailey Josephine
What day will baby be born: May 19 May 19 it was, although I thought we might go early there for a while
What time baby will be born: 10 am She was born at 8:55 am
Length of labor: none
Where: birthing center/hospital OR [ COLOR="pink"][/COLOR]
Weight: 7lbs. 5ozs. 8 pounds 1 ounce
Length:20 1/2 inches 19 inches (but she was 20 1/2 inches at her 1st check-up)
Special notes: We are scheduled for a c-section birth 1 day before 40 weeks. I am hoping to go into labor before that, but not optimistic as our first was induced 5 days after my due date, and we were pretty sure on the date. I suspect the doctor will probably try to push for May 15, as that is her typical surgery day, although she has agreed to the 19th. We will see. Our doctor was true to her word and Hailey was born on the 19th. Our OB and hospital went above and beyond to meet all of our birth plan requests. Despite being a c-section birth, it was beautiful and wonderful! DH even got to cut the cord! And DD never left our side!

Edited to add: I'm wrong already, we were just scheduled for 8am, and the doctor sees a patient at 9, so I am guessing that 10am is too late!

01-04-2006 03:49 PM
NYCVeg As this is a first baby, these guesses are probably way off!

Your Guesses...
Sex (your guess or u/s result): Will find out on Friday and post--feeling too nervous to guess! Little girl!
What day will baby be born: Friday Wednesday
What time baby will be born: 3:24 am 12:27am
Length of labor: over 12 hours (I've read that average first labors are 12 hours and for some reason I expect mine to be longer--perhaps significantly longer) 20 hours from when my water broke; 12 hours from when contractions started; 3.5 hours from when active labor started
Where: Birth Center : Birth Center

Special notes:
01-04-2006 02:40 PM
Peppamint Looks like moderators for I'm Pregnant are laralou and Chanley... since the DDC are sub-forums of I'm Pregnant I guess we should PM them! I'll do that right now.

ETA: Thank you laralou for making this a stickified thread!

Mamabeakley My Guesses...
Sex (your guess or u/s result): Um. I can't guess. I have no idea. I am thinking girl-thoughts, but I thought girl the whole time with DS and was WRONG! It's a Boy!
What day will baby be born: April 30 (don't know why, just DS was early and I counted backwards from my due date and that seemed like the place to stop!) Almost happened, but not quite - labor started May & baby was born May 2
What time baby will be born: Hmm. About 3 pm? Ha! Not! 6 AM
Length of labor: 11 hours. That's 1/2 of my labor with DS, which is how my mama's history reads. Try 6.5 = 1/4 of first labor!
Where: At home . . . somewhere I can get upright - like the middle of the living room - gotta get better curtains, though! On the bed!
Weight: Oh, I don't know! How about 7 lbs even? 7 lbs 9 oz & posterior & pushing still only took 10 minutes.
Length: 19"? 20"
Special notes: I'd love to have a quick labor in the middle of the night with DS sleeping through it and me and DH catching the baby with the midwives arriving too late. But I don't think that's very likely. Well, we got quick, middle of the night, and DS slept through most of it. The midwives did get there, which I was glad of, and *I* caught the baby!
01-04-2006 11:04 AM
Momto1and1ontheway Hi. In order to make it a sticky, we have to have someone PM a Moderator. I've looked but can't figure out who the Mod for this group would be. Anyone else know and want to send a PM? (then, can you let us know for future reference??)

Thanks mamas!

JayGee Sex (your guess or u/s result): Girl (guess)

What day will baby be born: May 22

What time baby will be born: 11:15pm

Length of labor: 15 hours

Where: Home

Weight: 8 lbs. 5 oz.

Length: 20 in.

Special notes: Both of my babies have arrived "late" so I anticipate that again (DS was 12 days, DD was 2 days past due date). DSs labor was 40 hours and then a c-section. DDs labor was 30 hours unmedicated, so I'm hoping for about half that this time. I so envy you with 6-8 hour labors!!!!
