Just for Fun: Birth Predictions!

Since most don't yet know their baby's sex, I thought it would be a good time to play a game. We did this in F17 and it was fun to revisit after birth to see how close our predictions were. Tell us what you think!

  • @lakesideknitter It was so horrible although it was partially my fault because I was so insistent on no interventions and doing everything naturally. I’ve learned my lesson now...if baby hasn’t made any progress at 5 days overdue, let’s get shit going!

    @lakesideknitter I was told I wouldn't be induced until I was 42 weeks :flushed:

    FTMs- Note all of us that were overdue with our firsts.  I remember my due date coming and staring at my stomach like...Let's do this!  I was induced at 41w and DS was born at 41+1.  I'm just hoping for an on time baby this time and maybe going into labor the traditional way, that would be exciting!

    DH was 2 weeks late and 10 lbs so I am scared of going past with a huge baby, but being like a week late would actually work out great for mat leave. I keep forgetting to ask my OB how early she will induce after the due date has passed.

  • @legallykate Most hospitals have a policy and it really isn't up to the OB.  My hospitals policy was no sooner than 41w and my OB got me in the fastest she could after that because DS was estimated to be huge.  Good news is, once they broke the water they realized it was a lot of water and he was pretty normal (8lbs, 6oz)

  • I suppose I could add to mine that both DS' came before 40w so I'm assuming #3 will be around 39w as well. I know it's not perfect science and I could most definitely still go past 40w but I'm wishful thinking here lol. Also wishful thinking saying girl  :#

    Girl or Boy: Boy

    One of my good friends is using me as her own anecdotal science experiment for old wives' tales gender predictions. I put absolutely no faith in the results, but it's fun and silly all the same. And the fact I don't want to know till birth I guess makes me the perfect double blind participant. So far results have been inconclusive. :P

    Hairy or Bald: Bald

    Both my husband and I were bald at birth. I didn't start growing hair till after my first birthday. It was so bad even my first birthday picture had a bow taped to my head and my dad nicknamed me Tweety Bird. :(

    Day/Time: Every time I have a health emergency it's in the middle of the night on a weekday, where my husband has to call in to work and take an emergency day, so I don't expect this to be any different. Heh

  • Don’t assume that just because you’re a FTM that you will be late. Everyone said it to me and I ended up going early at 34 weeks. I stayed at home so long because I thought there was no way I could be in labor, just Braxton Hicks. I got to the hospital 7cm dilated.
