    Baby weight predictions ...

    So I know we're all obsessing over gender as scans are looming and I thought maybe it would be good to have a distraction!

    I would like to know what weight were your previous babies and what weight do you predict this baby will be?

    My ds1 was 7lbs 2oz and my ds2 was 7lbs, I think if this one is a girl she will be 7lbs and if it is a boy he will be 8lbs.

    Also due dates - when do you think your little one will arrive?
    I was 4 days late with ds1 and 10 days early with ds2, I think this one will arrive on the 18th April.

    Fun to see who gets it right!
    DS1 - 4.5yrs DS2 - 3yrs

    DD was 6p 9o. I think this bub will be bigger maybe 7p 9o.

    DD was 38 weeks. I think this one will be 39 weeks. I predict bub coming on may 8.

    Due date for my son was January 25th and I went into early labor on January 20th (and he was born January 22nd.)

    The midwives thought he would be 8lbs but I knew they were totally wrong... he was 6lbs, 12oz.

    I know second babies can be larger than first ones because there is more room, but I expect roughly the same this time, maybe slightly bigger. Who knows. I'm still vegetarian and I think that would possibly limit how heavy the baby will end up being.

    As to when I could go into labor, who knows. I do a lot of walking and not driving (don't have a car here), so perhaps around the same time frame as my son.

    Although I expect and sure as hell hope my labor is SHORTER the second time... and I hope baby is not posterior this time! That will really help improve my birthing experience... fingers crossed!

    Ohh this is fun! Thanks mummypink!

    DS1 was born 37 weeks - 8lbs3oz - I had to be induced for high blood pressure
    DS2 - was born 37 weeks all on his own - I had gestational diabetes and had to go for regular scans. The day before he was born, they told me he was going to weigh over 8 pounds - he ended up being 7lbs7oz

    This baby - I think might make it to 38 weeks (I am not letting DH near me after 35 weeks) and I think the baby will weigh around 8 lbs. So maybe picking April 10th!!

    Will be fun to see how close we all are with our guesses!

    I was told ds2 was going to be big and he was smaller than his brother had been who they told me was going to be on the small side!
    A friend of mine had a girl weighing 9lbs 10oz!!!!!!!!! Makes your eyes water just thinking about it!

    Both of mine were quick labours, just using hypnobirthing techniques for pain relief. I'm really hoping to be lucky enough to get away with the same again but also hoping this one doesn't arrive too fast as we have just over an hours drive to the hospital!

    DS1 was born 13 days early , 6lbs
    DS2 was born 10 days early, 6lbs
    My guess for the next one is a week early, April 4 , at about the same weight. Time will tell!

    Ds1-induced at 38 weeks due to cholestasis. 7lbs. 8oz.
    Ds2-induced at 38 weeks due to cholestasis. 7lbs. 9oz.
    Dd-induced at 37 weeks due to cholestasis. 7lbs. 15oz.
    Ds3-induced because I was 9 days overdue. NO CHOLESTASIS. WOOHOO!! 9lbs.

    My due date for this baby is April 29, 2013. I think he or she will be born sometime in the beginning of May and was around 9 lbs again. I really hope my body will go in to labor on it's on this time and will not need to be induced again.

    3M&AL - what is Cholestatsis? That is crazy you went past your due date last time after all those early babies!
