FOR FUN - when do YOU think your baby will be born?

Postby LC810 » Fri Apr 05, 2013 9:23 am

1st baby - My due date is either June 9th (LMP) or June 12th (O). At the first ultrasound, around 6 weeks pregnant, measurements predicted a due date of June 8th.

Now, at 30 weeks pregnant, we're starting to speculate on when the baby will *actually* be born.

My guess is May 25th. Here's why:
- The baby measured 2-3 weeks big at a 28-week ultrasound
- I work a high stress job on my feet all day = high risk for early delivery
- I was born 2 weeks early and weighed 9lbs - also the 1st baby for my mom
- May 25th is a full moon. (I used to work in a newborn nursery and we ALWAYS had more babies during a full moon)

What is your due date vs. when you THINK your baby will be born? And why?

My Due date is May 10th .

I think that this LO will be born on April 28th.

I have no real reason other than the fact that i just "feel it" lol. So, we will see if my intuition is right?

My DD was born at 37 weeks. SO, maybe i think that becuase she was born early this baby will be too?

:D

I'm a first timer and although we tend to go to term or over due I have a strong feeling I will deliver early.

First due date was May 27th which was then adjusted to June 2nd based on ovulation and early scan

However I have gestational diabetes and I feel that may play a role in an early birth based on baby size although my blood sugars have been in complete range since diagnosis.
I too work on my feet all day in a stressful environment and my baby has been head down since 20wks and I feel like he gets lower and lower every week!'
So with all that reasoning I have suggested I will have him by May 25th at the latest :)
