Baby Stats Game ~ Wanna Play?

This is a little game that I used to play on a forum that I had with a good friend. I didn't think I had the energy to post this, but she was so sweet to send me the stats. :-)

It is real simple ~ just guess labor and baby stats to play!

 ~ 38 Weeks 5 days ~

A little history to help:

  • I will be 39 weeks in 2 days and generally go a week early.

  • My 2nd was my biggest baby at 7 pounds 5 ounces at 38 weeks (induced).  

  • My first and smallest baby was 6 pounds 10 1/2 ounces, 19 1/2 inches long, was born at 9:57 a.m., and I had to be given pitocin to induce labor after my water broke. 

  • My last baby was 6 pounds 14 ounces, 20 3/4 inches, was born at 11:54 p.m., was my first homebirth, my water broke 23 hours before I went into labor and labor lasted 2 hours 54 minutes. 

  • My midwife thinks this will be my biggest baby. 

  • I have 4 boys and 1 girl.

Time is going by real slow. I have very little energy (mental or physical), cannot walk without pain, am tired but not sleeping well, emotional. . . and well, 9 months pregnant!

So, to help me pass the time until baby arrives, please take a guess!

1. Length of gestation:

39 weeks

41+ weeks

2. Gender:



3. Time of day for birth:





4. Weight of baby:

6. Length of active labor:

  5. Good luck! I am so excited for you. I am thinking about you every day and hoping that you have an easy (ha, ha) labor and delivery.

    40 weeks

  6. hey Chel! I don't have time to play (because I'm supposed to be making dinner!) but I thought if I don't comment now I'll never get back here! YOU LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL! I'm so excited for you that your little bubba will be in your arms soon...and even though it may seem like the days are dragging on, from here, your pregnancy has been the quickest I've ever known!

    So looking forward to hearing about how it all goes....much love and many hugs and blessings to you my sister and friend far away!

  8. For an unplanned photo, you look wonderful! I know you're ready to be done though--so here's my guesses.

    2. Boy (though I want to be wrong on this one because I know how wonderful it is for my girls to have each other and it would be nice for Ellie to have a sister)
    3. Evening
    4. I'm thinking the upper end of the 7 pound range--maybe even the low end of the 8 pound range.
    5. 20+ inches
    6. 2-3 hours

  9. Chelle - How fun! I am "burnt" though. :-) I just wanted to tell you - you look Ma- velous! I know the clock seems like it has stopped. Hang in there! This time next week you could have a precious bundle of love in your arms!!! My Chazaq's birthday (last year) was the 30th and My Eliana is the 25th! :-) I think it is a girl BTW. :-)Much Love! p
