<span style="color:#0000FF;">BOY! Was I WAY off! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"></span><br><br>
Baby's gender: I am going to say girl. <span style="color:#0000FF;">It's a BOY!</span><br>
Weight (lbs/oz): 8lbs. 1 oz. <span style="color:#0000FF;">10 LBS!!</span><br>
Length (in): 20 1/4 in. <span style="color:#0000FF;">23" long</span><br>
Baby Birthdate and your EDD: Not sure of EDD I think it is July 3rd. So I will say birthdate will be July 1st. <span style="color:#0000FF;">Born July 11th</span><br>
Time of day: Between 6am-8am <span style="color:#0000FF;">Time of birth 12:20am</span><br>
Length of labor: 4 hrs. <span style="color:#0000FF;">Almost 6 1/2 hrs.</span><br>
Place of Birth: I am hoping home. <span style="color:#0000FF;">At home!!</span><br>
Other details: I want to try for a water birth this time around whether it's at home or at the FSBC...I wanted to get into the tub last time but there just wasn't enough time to fill it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><span style="color:#0000FF;">Had time to fill it, but it just didn't feel right for me so I got out and birthed him on the bed.</span>

Baby's gender: I am going to guess boy, even though I don't have any real reason <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br>
Weight (lbs/oz): about 7.5 pounds<br>
Length (in): 21 inches, because it seems like my babies are ALWAYS 21 inches long<br>
Baby Birthdate and your EDD: My EDD is July 18th, which takes into account an extra week because of my long cycle. I am guessing the baby will be born July 20th, just because I've never gone less than 9 days longer than the "normal people" due date.<br>
Time of day: 9:02 AM, why not?<br>
Length of labor: 8 hours, pretty standard for me. But it would be pretty cool if I had another 45 minute labor and delivery, like with my middle daughter!!<br>
Place of Birth: Probably the hospital, even though I would really prefer a UC at home<br>
Other details: If I give birth in the hospital, I will end up needing an epidural just to relax or I won't dilate properly. Hopefully I can hold off the Pitocin long enough to give birth without it. However, I predict that if I give birth at home, I won't even need the epidural.

I was 3 weeks ahead at 5 weeks & now I'm 4 weeks ahead at 9 weeks. I think first trimester measurements can be really wonky, especially on baby #2+. It's fun to watch & see though! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
