For Fun: Guess when baby will come and how big he will be...

Well, as we are getting closer to the due date of Baby #5, I thought we could have a little fun and have some guesses as to when he will come and how big he will be. I will add a running list of guesses on the side of the blog. To make your guess, you will need to comment on this post or email me at We will take guesses for the following: date and time of birth, weight, and length. I will also accept unique boy name ideas as he is still nameless...

Here is the pertinent info you might want to be able to make an informed guess.

About this guy: I found out I was pregnant on July 26, 2010 (Army's b-day). According to my last period date, I would have been due sometime mid March. However, we had a very early ultrasound (5 weeks as it turned out) that put the due date on April 5, 2011 (E Dawg's 7th birthday). These early ultrasounds are supposed to be the most accurate identifier of due date. So, officially my due date is set at April 5, 2011 (4 weeks and 2 days away).

As far as his size, at my 20 week ultrasound, he measured a bit big and a bit further along that 20 weeks (again-the early ultrasounds are most accurate). And we did another Ultrasound at 30 weeks where he measured more like 32-33 weeks and was already 4 lb 3 oz (according to the measurements-which are fairly accurate, but could be way off as well).

About the other kids/previous pregnancies:

My older 4 kids were all early and have been progressively bigger:

Salsa was 3 days early. She was 7 lb 14.6 oz and 20.5 inches long.

E Dawg was 9 days early. He was 7 lb 14.6 oz and 20.5 inches long (yes-he and Salsa were identical in size at birth).

Army was 15 days early. He was 8 lb 15.2 oz and 21.75 inches long.

Cat was 13 days early. She was 9 lb 4 oz and 19.5 inches (that is what it officially says, but it was determined that was inaccurate as she was 22 inches at 3 days old).

How do I feel?

Well, I am miserable and feel that baby should come anytime now. I have occasional contractions, but nothing of real consequence. At my appointment last Tuesday, I was dilated to a 3+ and 50% effaced. BUT that means nothing as a 5th time mom I could go around forever like that. I hope this baby comes early, but I can see this being the one late child...

So, Now that you have the 411, make a guess as to what day you think this child will be born, and I will add it to the list on the side of this blog as well as the list I am going to put on my deals blog. No one in our house has made a guess yet, but we will in the next day or so. Remember, to make guesses you will need to comment on this post or email me at We will take guesses for the following: Date and time of birth, weight, and length. I will also accept unique boy name ideas as he is still nameless...
