Baby Guessing Game!

Well, folks, I think it's time for the baby guessing game! Potentially pertinent facts and/or red herrings follow below. To enter, send your guess to juleannwakeman at gmail dot com with "Baby Guessing Game" as the subject line. Include your guesses for the following categories: Sex, Weight, Height, Date of Birth, and Time of Birth. Bonus categories: Baby's Name and Will We Make it to the Hospital in Time?

Things to consider when making your guesses:
  • My due date is October 18, based on a calculator that seems to have given me an extra day, so it might actually be October 17.

  • Valerie was born at 37w 1d after a 28-hour induction and a 1 hour and 20 minute labor. So far, I don't have any of the symptoms of ICP, which was what led to her induction.

  • Valerie was 7lbs 5oz at birth, 20", and was born at 1:06 p.m.

  • The baby dropped about a week and a half ago, and the head appears to now be fully engaged.

  • I have been in nesting mode for the past two weeks.

  • The hair on my legs is growing more slowly while pregnant.

  • Before I dropped, I was carrying the baby high.

  • You can tell that I am pregnant from behind.

  • I didn't have much morning sickness, just nasty heartburn and allergies.

  • I have been craving sweet things and cheese.

  • The baby's heart rate has been above 140 bpm.

  • This baby seems to move much more than Valerie did, but she had an anterior placenta and a short cord, which could factor into that.

Good Luck!
