I thought I posted this already, but apparently it disappeared...

With my son I correctly predicted his due date to the day. I went into labour a few days earlier though, so I thought my foresight was foiled. Nope, just a long prodromal labour that was really long and tough


With my daughter I was waaaaaay off. I think hope for another early baby won out over intuition!

This time, this is my prediction:

Girl, born April 2nd, at 935am, weighing 9 lb 8 oz. Healthy and good birth. BOY! Born April 2nd at 1413, weighing 9 lbs 3 oz. Good and healthy birth!

Anyone else have any predictions for themselves?

hahaha, this is fun!
Me: Girl, May 3, 10 am.

oh yes, and hopefully she'll be around 7 and a half or 8 pounds... not a 10 pounder like my last one!~

OK, since it looks like its twins, I gotta make 'the first amendment' to my post. So now I say a boy and a girl, both with lots of hair, girl being 7 pounds 4 ounces, boy 7 pounds 9 ounces, and they will arrive naturally on April 22 at noon.

hmmm.....last time I said June 3rd and she was born June 5th.

This time I think its a boy and will be born April 17th early evening. 8 lbs 12 oz.

This should be a sticky so that we can post an update when we have them.

This is fun! Thanks for doing this, CarolynnMarilynn!!


For the longest time I keep seeing the numbers 410. I often wake up at 4:10 am (as does my dad...odd, huh?) I was born on 4/10.

So what the hey, I'll say my baby girl will be born on 4/10 at 4:10 in the morning! She'll weigh around 6 pounds.


My second "prediction" is that she'll be born on her due date, March 28th, at 4:10 (morning or afternoon, doesn't matter...just gotta get that 410 in there!
)

I reserve the right to change these predictions as soon as I have my prophetic dream!


(Of course, I've had a run of "boy" thoughts, much more than "girl," but one can hope!)

My predictions (which may change as we near April
):

Sex: Male
Birth Date: April 21, 2007
Time: 11:15 AM
Weight: 8lbs 11oz
Hours in Labor: 16
Place of Birth: A Birth Center an hour and a half away from our house.

I predict that labor and delivery will go relatively smoothly....and I bet that I'll have DH drive me to the birth center way too early because I'm nervous I won't get there in time. We'll end up having to spend the night at the center or a local hotel because I'm too afraid for us to drive all the way back home.
I suspect that DH will say that he wants to cut the cord, but then chicken-out when the time comes.

************************************************** ****

ACTUAL BIRTH:

Sex: Female
Birth Date: April 19, 2007
Time: 3:13 AM
Weight: 8lbs 5.5oz
Hours in Labor: 15
Place of Birth: The hospital across the street from the birth center.

When we got to the birth center, I was already 5 cm dilated, so we certainly didn't get there way too early like I thought would happen. Had to transfer to hospital because I couldn't keep any liquids down and got dehydrated - midwife thought it would be beneficial to get IV fluids, since I was running out of energy to push effectively. Other than that, the labor and delivery was relatively smooth. Had a beautiful drug-free vaginal birth.

My prediction, which I also reserve the right to edit!
:

Birthday: April 5th
Gender: Female
Place: Home w/midwife and hubby. Kids and my mom will be in the house, not sure if in bathroom with me.
Weight: 8 lbs, 3 oz

It would be neat if this babe would be born early afternoon. I've had a middle-of-the-nighter and an early evening baby, so we'll see. Edited to add that I keep picturing myself laboring with the morning light shining into my bathroom. It hits the mirrors beautifully, so I would love to actually experience this. Also, the 5th is really stuck in my head, so I think that'll be the day, for some reason. I was surprised when I visited this old post and saw that I had already predicted the 5th!

My first was about 10 hours and second was about 8, so, theoretically this one should be about 6, right? Right? Both kids were 8 lbs exactly, so I tacked on an extra 3 oz for this one since I'll be closer to my edd than ever before. First was 39 weeks, second was 38.5.

If I could go into labour at about 8 a.m. after a perfect night's rest and then birth baby at about noon, that'd be perfect, right?

Of course, I know that's silly, but...........guess who's for sure getting lucky on the morning of April 5th if baby hasn't arrived yet.

Girl.

Hmmm, 2/3 came a week or more past their due date, but my other April baby came 2 days before her birthday. I think I will stick with a week late.

April 24 at 2pm (same day as E's birthday)

8 pounds even

hospital birth (as planned)

Anyone guessing for Easter Sunday? Or maybe the day before so they don't have to cook for relatives?

I'm so afraid to post because I'm just so happy to be pregnant and I'll be soooo happy with a healthy boy or girl, but I'll play anyway.


Boy (even though the chinese predictor charts all say girl)
8lbs 2oz (dd was 8lbs 15 3/4oz...why didn't they just say 9lbs
...so I doubt I'll have a small baby)
April 8 4am
Home water birth with no worries or scares

Ok I am having 0 intuition about gender but all my life I have felt that I would only have sons (but I would really, really love a daughter)

so I am gonna say:

Boy
April 19 at 3:15pm
At home
8lbs 6 oz

This is fun!

All mine were born real close to their due dates.

Lets see....
I am guessing April 8th at 3 am
Boy 8 lbs. 5 ounces.

I also have a knack for hitting important dates and dates where everyone else is doing something really important..my guess is Easter 2007

My hubby and I were married on the 13th and our first anniversary was on Friday the 13th. Now, the due date of our first baby is on Friday, April 13th. It is a good thing we aren't superstitious!
So, what the heck.. I'll guess my due date:

Birth Date: 4/13
Time: 10:47 PM
Sex: Boy
Weight: 7lbs, 15 oz.
Length: 22 inches
