Birth Board Baby Awards

I didn't know if you ladies were interested but I thought we could do some baby awards like I've seen on other BBs. Here's a list I have going and I'm currently making blinkies for them. Let me know what you think and after ever baby is born and we can get an idea of who will "win" each category. I thought I would stick with our bug theme. Biggrin

"Early Worm" First Baby Born: Isabel Mary - Kim (HawkIgirl)
"Baby Snail" Last Baby Born: Lucille Darlene- Cedar (cha_cha_heels)
"Baby Dragonfly" Earliest Baby Born: Elijah James - Tiffany (ArtsyMother)

"Baby Daddylonglegs" Longest Baby: Alice Katherine - Sarah (Singfourever)
"Baby Moth" Biggest Baby(weight): Caleb Allen - Jess (RabidDolly)
"Baby Gnat" Smallest Baby(weight): Oliver & Audrey - (Roxannek)

How are they going to be 'awarded?' Like, if we think we might qualify for one do we let you know? Are some ladies going through and doing them? Just wondering. Smile

Yup. Just nominate your LO for an award. I'm sure we'll have a tie or two on something. Biggrin

Well, ctx started at 3am, he was born at 8:17am.
But if we go by cm, I was 4 1/2 cm at 6:45/7am...

Smile Not sure if anyone else went faster? Was that for "Lightning Bug"? Dont remember the name. Smile

I was induced around 12:30 am... but was 4 cm, -2 station at 9:30 am, she was out at 10:51 am. So close to you.

Most siblings... I don't think anyone was expecting #7 or more. There were a few expecting #6, me, Tiffany, Christina (SweetPeaPods) and Ruth (sweetbabiesmama).

Alice was born on her due date.

Not sure how much Charlie gained from one week to one month, but he was 7lbs 9oz at birth, 8lbs 8oz at 2 weeks and 11lbs 7oz at 1 month :eek: He's a big baby like DD1 who was 8lbs 13oz at birth and 14lbs 8ozs at 2 months. DD2 wasn't 14lbs until 6 months! So funny how different they can be.

I go tomorrow for Nate's one month but I think my little chunkier is going to have some big weight gain! He is eating 4-6 oz every 2-3 hours! I'll let you know tomorrow.

I don't think it probably really counts, but on a technicality, I was 4 cm for a week and a half before I had Matthew......so, longest active birth?

Otherwise, I don't think we "qualify" for anything. Sad (unless you consider my birth as the most exciting but I would imagine that there is a more exciting birth out there). LOL.

ummmmmm. what about least amount gained in the first month? LOL. We'd probably qualify for that one.......Matthew only gained 1lb, 2oz in his first month. (yeah....I'm stretching here)

Nate was 6 lbs 14 oz at 1 week and today he was 10 lbs 10 oz at 5 weeks for a gain of 3 ibs 12 oz in 4 weeks! Wow!

Wow - I had no idea others were so fast! Well, I haven't posted my birth story yet, but I went fast also. (Very fast.) I remember my first check when I got to the hospital was right around 11:10pm, and she said I was "almost 4 cm" at that point. And Vi was born at 11:47pm. So, about 35 minutes?

I'm thinking we're close for the least hair - maybe one boy and one girl?

Very cute idea!

Of course, Sid and I qualify for none.

ITA! Biggrin

I will chase up on these soon ladies. It's been a busy week. :confused:

BTW I'm totally open for ideas on more awards! Please let me know. Biggrin

Whoa! Elise! That is one amazingly fast birth!!! I thought for sure we had that one! LOL! Biggrin

I don't think we qualify for anything else then. We may have qualified for most weight gained in a month but we don't have a one month check up. But he went from 6 lb 11 oz at leaving the hospital on 4/8 to 8 lb 8 oz on 4/21. :shrug:

Its fun to see all the babies and labor awards though. Fun idea for sure! Smile

Yeah, I know - ridiculous, isn't it? All of my mom friends are completely disgusted with me, LOL. I told DH that if more women had births that fast, there would be a lot more children in the world! Wink (Sorry to steal your award...)

nak

haha! i know! my pastor told me not to tell other moms about my labor... they'd all hate me. Blum 3 i think if most labors were faster there'd be more women willing to try natural childbirth too. Smile

girl, you didn't steal anything! you earned it! laboring in 35ish minutes?!?! you kidding me?? you deserve a gold medal! Wink it's fast but pretty intense!

Well I'm a little late but wanted to go ahead and jump in Smile Looks like I have the shortest bug (although I'm confident they measured him wrong) but I think I might also qualify for the shortest active labor based on CM. I was actually in labor for 36 hrs and 10 min but I went from 4-birth in an hour and a half. I think that puts me at a tie with a couple other ladies.

I probably tie with the baldest baby also.
Here he is at 9 days old:

And here he is at about 8 weeks:

Love this thread by the way! So fun to see how everyone's little bugs are so different Smile

Nvermind. I missed this post. Haha! Elise smoked me!! Smile I'm still impressed with myself though that I went from 1-birth in under two hours after I had been induced for 34 hours. We never dreamed that would happen!!

I'll have to look about least gained though. I don't think I qualify. I'm tryin to remember how much he was. I know he was 5.10 at birth and at his first appt a few days later... Trying to find the info on his one month appt though.
