Ooh, I'm first! Okay, I think it will be:

A Boy (how could it not be, with all the girl stuff you already have,LOL)

Weighing @ 8lbs 8 ozs and 21 inches long

Born on 9/8/07 (wouldn't that be a cool birthday?) early in the morning, like around dawn.

Well, I made most of those guesses up. It'll be fun to see what really happpens :)


I say boy--which, attention all bettors below me, means it's a girl. I am the human ultrasound machine, always, always wrong (although I will say I have been right for friends-on-the-Interent before).

9 lbs, 8 oz (but small head/narrow shoulders for a niiiice easy delivery) and 21 inches long.

Born Sept. 10 at 9:10 am (because that would just be cool).

Name? Anthony. Or Ethan.

You were six cm dilated before you even went into labor? Swear to God if I didn't think you were pretty cool I would be thinking mean thoughts. I was a week late with Maggie and was 1 cm dilated when I came in after my water broke. Since we had a prety quick C section, I don't know if I ever even progressed to more.


Since my birthday is Sept 13, I'm going with your due date. Do I need a time? How about 3:45 AM. I've always thought it was a boy, and I'll guess 8 lbs 3 oz.

So excited for you.


I say girl (just to be different), 8lbs even, 20 inches on Sept. 6th with no drugs. Hows that?

Rayne of Terror

Sept 4, 7 lb 12 oz, boy.


I want an 8 lb, 38.5 week baby too! I'm due on September 12th. I did a guessing thing on my blog too--we let the doctor give us an ultrasound video to guess from. We keep getting wild guesses too :) I'm going to guess September 9 for you, a boy, and 7 lb, 10 oz. I'm hoping for a very easy labor for you, too--I predict 8 hours. Were you dilated at all at your 35 week appointment today? I have mine on Friday, and I'm really curious to see if anything's changed yet.


Girl 7lb 5oz 19 inches on sept 8th. Wishing you an easy labour.


How fun, Linda! I haven't commented much lately so had planned to stop by tonight and tell you how much I've enjoyed this part of your parenting journey - thank you so much for sharing. You and your family are in my prayers. I have absolutely zero experiences with birth so I am going to throw out the following: boy, September 12, 7 lb 15 oz. I can't wait to see pictures of him/her!


Ok, I also say Boy, September 11 at 4:30pm, 8lbs 5 oz 20 inches long. and a speedy delivery with a healthy kiddo!


This is fun! I say boy (I swear, kids know somehow), 9/17/07, 9lb. 1 oz. and 21 inches. Hopefully everything will go incredibly smoothly. Good luck!!


I'm with those who say the collection of girl clothes means you'll have a boy (I do recognize the scientific invalidity of that).

I thought late ultrasounds were notoriously inaccurate, but the sonographer estimated 8 1/2 pounds at my 41 week biophysical profile, and 2 days later I had an 8lb5oz baby.


I'm going with girl - simply because I want you to be able to use all your girl things sitting the basement (and I've got 3 of my own and another on the way and think to myself - if this is a boy he'd better like pink dresses!) I'm also going to say Sept. 15 and 8lbs 6oz. Oh, and I hoping for a breeze of a labor and a easy latcher!

Hmm, I guessed in an email, but that was before I knew all this extra information.

Girl, Sept 14th 11:11am, 9 lbs 1 oz.

Cat, Maryland

Sept 13 is also my birthday so I'm guessing that day. It's just a cool day. And at 3:15pm, because you know you'll go into the doctor that morning and you'll be so dialated that they will send you to the hospital. (I was also 6 cm walking into the hospital and they made me go even though I was not in labor...)

8lbs 9 oz 22 inches long. BOY!


Boy, Sept 10th, 7lbs 10 oz, 21.5 inches long


I guess:
a boy, 8 lbs. 3 oz., born on Sept 10


I predict it will be a 14 lb., 9 oz. Ribeye steak in mushroom sauce with a lovely honey glaze, served on a bed of wild rice.

Either that or a male child, 10 lbs 6 oz. As long as it wants to be. It will poop ALL THE TIME. Born Sept. 3, 2007.


Since my gut instinct says it's a girl, and I am ALWAYS wrong (including with my own children!), I will say:

Boy, September 1, 7 lbs 13 oz.


I'm going with: a girl, born around noon on September 1st, weighing 9lbs.2oz. and measuring 21 inches long. Oh, and I think she will have a ton of hair.

Sending easy labor and speedy non-complicated delivery thoughts your way.


Well, just to be different: September 21 (no, I'm not being mean, it's perfectly possible, and anyway, I always went late myself); a girl, 9lbs, 2oz. Short labor, no drugs, easy breastfeeding. :-)

Laura K.

The u/s tech, late on in the pregnancy, predicted each of my children to be a good 1/2 lb. larger than they actually were - they thought M would be 9 lbs. and he wasn't even 8! So, I don't think the baby is as big as you think (s)he is.

Here's my guess:

Sept. 3 (you know, so you could LABOR on Labor Day)
7lbs, 14oz
21 inches

A's comment is hilarious!


I say Boy on September 10

liz s

September 6 6:00 AM Boy 8 lb 15 oz 22 inches

BTW what is the heart rate? I may change my sex guess.

I didn't circumcise my boys and haven't had any issues so far 11 and 3 years old.


LOL Indigo Man!

I say Boy (kids know stuff, I am sticking with L & E), Sep, 10th. 8 lbs 13 oz. 4:00 AM

Best of luck for an easy delivery!


Forgot the inches: 22


I never get these guessing things right. But I'm wishing for ease and convenience for you, so I say

Girl, 8 lbs 2 oz, 21 inches... September 8. :)

Best of luck whichever way it turns out!


I definitely think it's a boy! I think that the variety will spice things up a bit. And everyone needs a brother hanging around, sulking or getting into trouble.


QUICK labor- like an hour from start to finish!
8lbs 5 oz, 20"

Kate W.

8 lb 11 oz.
20 inches

*Katherine is a lovely name! :)


I forgot to add inches - I'll say 20 inches. Add it to my prior comment (boy, 9/1, 7-13, 20 inches)


8.5 lbs
21 inches
Labor under 8 hours
mid afternoon delivery

As for circumcision. Just my experience...
J2 was not circumcised and I have never wished otherwise. There has been no extra care involved. I checked with our pediatrician and they did not care. I also asked my Aunt who 18 year old son was not circumcised to see if they ever experienced any problems.


Sept 5th
8lbs, 15oz., 22 inches

Wow, you had big twins, being that they were born at 35+ weeks and twins!So I predict a big baby this time too!


3:41 pm
7 lbs, 12 oz, 21 1/2 inches


8 lbs. 8 oz.
19 inches
labor 6 hours or less

I based the measurements and labor time totally on the differences between my first (a girl) and second (a boy). With my second, I too always measured a few days ahead with ultrasounds and a week ahead by fundal height after 30 weeks and he was a week early. I felt like he would be huge, but was under 8 lbs.


Just for fun, I'm going to say girl, August 31st, 7 pounds 13 ounces. That's my bday and my birth weight:)


7 lbs 10oz
21 inches


I am so excited for you guys!
My guess:

8 lbs even
21 inches
September 9th
in the AM

Best of luck to you!!

Lisa C.

8 lbs 10 oz
22 inches long
Born 9/11/2007
in the afternoon

The Moosh is circumcised and I would not recommend. It was very painful for him, and it was difficult to care for. Even with application of vaseline multiple times a day we had many, many adhesions and they were very painful for him. :( My parents and R told me it would be more difficult to care for an intact penis, but further research has found that to be false... all you have to do is wipe it like a finger. Once the kid is old enough to retract he can do the rest himself (washing daily). I honestly wish I'd never agreed to it. So there you go :).


Boy. I've thought boy all along. Especially since you are so set up for a girl. Boy's look good in pink too :)

Sept 3 in the afternoon. 7 lbs 3 oz. 17.5 inches


My guess:
A boy, 8 lbs 4 oz, 20 inches long, born September 9th at 2:40pm. Good luck!


I say a Girl because I've thought that since the beginning. It will be big; 9 lb 13oz and as soon as she's born she'll poop meconium all over the nurses (just like my huge son did).
She'll be born on 9/11/07 just so you can make it into a happy day instead of remembering a sad one.


Oh I forgot to add that's she's going to have TONS of fluffy baby hair :-)


Am i still allowed to guess?

Boy. Because i already have a present for you if it's a girl, and that would be too easy.

10 lb. 1 oz. Because Houston was 10 lb. 2 oz, and that way i can have bragging rights.

Born on Sept. 9. Because 9/9 is a cool birthday.
