Predictions?

ok, sorry, i just realized i've been very chatty this week LOL

on my other thread Heather said she bets i will go into labor first. which got me thinking and thought it would be fun to try to predict when we think labor will happen and why.

I'll start.

i predict August 29th for me (EDD is 31st). some may remember the story, but my Step dad (who is dad) birthday is the 29th. it is also the full moon that nite. from what i hear, full moons tend to put woman into labor? IDK but its fun to think about so im going with it. Biggrin

I honestly dont have a clue and with this being a twin pregnancy I know that things can turn on a dime. I would ulimately love to make it to 37 wks 9/5/11- labor day! LOL Biggrin

August 28 popped in my head the other day, which is completely plausable since it's pretty much exactly to the day how far along I was when I had DS, which was my longest pregnancy so far. I think it'd be pretty cool to go to September 2 though, that was my due date with DD1 and it's the Friday before labor day weekend so it wouldn't be so hard to find sitters (weekdays are tough!), plus I'd be over 37 weeks and get the September birthstone Wink I've never been right on my birthdate guesses though, DD2 and DS both showed up on days I would have 'preferred' they didn't, so if that trend continues I guess August 30-September 1, because I want to be there for the girls' first day of school (DD2's first day of kindergarten!) and that would put me in the hospital for it. I don't see me going much past 37 weeks, I'd be pretty amazed if I got to 38 (Sept. 7)....just based on how my body seems to work.

I dont have a prediction myself since this is my first, but the teachers I work with all seem to think that I will be early and have Jay between August 15-17. My mom was late with me by 3 weeks but my pregnancy has been nothing like her's. So we'll just have to see. I kicked my way out, literally kicking the sack and breaking the water and the as active as this guy is he might just do the same.:ROFL:

If I get to have a normal labour, I suspect I'll be pretty close to my EDD, DD was 39wks+5 days so pretty close. I don't really care when it happens, just that I can have a natural birth!
If I end up with a c/s, it'll probably be at the very end of August Sad

I have no idea. Last time I was induced because of fluid issues and my body wasn't at all ready and I ended up with a c-section at 34 weeks. I was never able to labor on my own so I'm not sure what to expect this time around.

Sept. 21 will be the tenth anniversary of the day Chris and I met and I will be almost 39 weeks so I'm going to say Sept. 21, just for fun.

I also have no idea being my first. I'm feeling like it's going to be earlier tho. Maybe one or two weeks early, but I'm not sure.

I have said since I got my BFP that it would be Sept 25th. I was wrong with my other two, so I likely will be wrong this time too lol! My mom wants me to go 1 day over (my grandmother's birthday) but if I end up going 4 days late, it would be the anniversary of my grandfather's passing... the grandfather we are naming this baby after! That would be kind of creepy lol! But with my GD diagnosis and history of larger babies, I doubt they'd let me go past my due date. My last two pregnancies had inductions planned for before my due dates, but I went naturally with both of them before the inductions lol!

Assuming that nothing risks me out of my VBAC, I'm going to say September 14 or 15. Yes, my due date is August 31. It would not surprise me in the least to go that late. I would love to go either September 1st or 2nd. For one thing, I really want that September birthstone! Lol! September 1st is my parents' wedding anniversary, and if he was born on September 2nd, he and DD would be exactly 2 years and 11 months apart, which would be kind of cool. I seriously don't expect to have him that soon though, assuming that I don't have some factor (GD, breech or transverse baby, etc.) that would risk me out of my VBAC. Fingers crossed that this little guy gets to pick his own birthday!!!

Provided this pregnancy goes to the end *I was 3 weeks early with Hailey*, I'd have to guess I'll be either a few days before my due date, or a few days after. I've always gone a couple days within my due date with the other kids. I'm hoping for BEFORE my due date of Sept. 21st, only due to the fact that my 2nd born's bday is the 23rd. Somewhere around the 15th works for me!

I am going to say September 5th, and hope i'm wrong! lol

DS was born ON his due date (June 25th), but I told myself throughout his pregnancy that he would be born on the 27th. Not sure where that came from, just a (incorrect, obviously!) feeling I guess.

I would love to be in September, as NO ONE on either side of our family has a September birthday, but 6 family members have an August one. Oh well, I guess it's up to B anyway, right? If he wants to be born in August, there's not a lot I can do about it. Smile

I predict I will have the last baby of the birth board. Our last was due on May 31 and we had her on June 8th and she was the last one, this one is due September 30, so going to guess October 7th

Since this is twin I already know that I'll go early...I'm just hoping not to early. I keep think Sept 15, but only time will tell.

Yep, I vote for one of our twin mommas!

I only have one other pregnancy to compare to, and with that one I delivered at 39+4 (by LMP) or 38+5 (by O date, which is how I counted the whole time).

If this one follows, I'd deliver on Sept 1 (39+4 LMP) or Aug 30 (38+5 O). Hello overanalyzing!

My sister says it will be Aug 25.

I definitely think we'll have at least one baby by mid-August. My oldest was due in September 2004 and I believe she was the first (I was due Sept. 2, she was born July 27). We had a few babies in mid-August and then a boom at the end of August/early Sept...I remember there being tons of August 25 births (at least 5 if I am remembering right) Blum 3
I'm definitely guessing one of our early Sept. due dates or twins for first baby(ies)

DD was due in Sept 07, and I remember being amazed at how many babies from the board were born before September even started! Earliest was June 12, two in July, and then 24 in August alone! (And yes I had to look up the thread to figure that out.)
