Baby Guesses

Now that I've hit the 30 week mark, I thought it was time to take some guesses from any of you readers about the gender and birthdate of this baby!

I'm curious to know what you all think. Despite the fact that I've had a boy pregnancy and a girl pregnancy, I haven't been able to find much in common with one pregnancy over the other. All three babies have been very active and my early pregnancy symptoms been similar. But here are a few things to note:

~ I notice that I seem to be more irritable with each pregnancy, but my theory is that, with each pregnancy, I have more people (little ones at least) in my life to irritate me :)

~ I'm carrying low, like I did with Keziah - but it could also just be because this is my 3rd.

~ I seem to be carrying most of the weight in my belly (and less all over). My favourite pair of maternity jeans from my pregnancy with Keziah actually seem a little baggy in the legs. Which is interesting since I feel so huge.

Here's a profile picture of little Ju-Jube from 14 weeks if it helps at all...

And here are some things to note in guessing the birthdate:

~ Micah was born 3 days after his due date. His ultrasounds both calculated that he was due a few days later than what we thought, so it could be that he was born on his actual due date!

~ Keziah was born 9 days after her due date and I had to be induced. My ultrasound with her actually calculated that she was due 5 days after we thought, so she may have only been born 4 days late :)

~ My due date with this baby is March 21st. My first ultrasound calculated that baby was due one day later (March 22nd) and the second ultrasound was bang on with my due date.

So, post your guesses on gender and birthdate - and weight if you want (Micah was 7 lbs, 15 oz, Keziah was 8 lbs, 6 oz).

My guess is a baby boy born on March 25th weighing 8+ lbs.

March 27
8lbs 8oz. (you do NOT look like the baby could possibly get that big, but based on how kids generally get bigger, the more you BIG reason i don't want anymore. haha)

Raine said...

March 25
8lbs 6oz.
BTW March 21 was Naomi's due date too, but she arrived 9 days early.

You look beautiful as always!
I can imagine that having more little people that demand all of your attention can lead to you feeling more irritable. Being pregnant for the first time has it's pros but for many of us women we also have full time jobs and people there to deal with too.
I carried very forward, all my weight in the front, low and I had a boy. I am saying BOY for you, born March 21 (He'll want to come on the first day of Spring) and he'll be just over 8lbs.

Janelle said...

(Kamryn's vote is for March 20th - her birthday! she thinks it's a girl and she will be 2 lbs because she's just going to be a little baby. and you should name her Emily Mikayla. heee heeee)

Jamie said...

Thanks for the name suggestion Kamryn - and I forgot your birthday was the 20th! I think that would be a great day to have the baby!

Lori said...

i'm never right, but let's say a little girly born on march 24,in the 7 lbs ball park...

all the best in the last 66 days...

Karen said...

I'll second the vote for March 25th, cuz that's my birthday, and it's 4 days late, which seems to be your trend, and I'll guess girl at 8lb 2 oz! Good luck in the last 10 weeks, Jamie! And, by the way, the basketball tummy is so cute! You are definitely all baby!

Kathy's corner said...

Oh, a girl for sure. Born March 19th, I get there March 21 (I think)weighing in at 7 lbs.14 oz.

Well, I finally got on your blog through my You did hear from my email that I think you are having a girl. My weight estimation is 8lb,15 oz. I found working in maternity that each babe usually weighs more than the one before.
Have you started eating asparagus yet? They are supposed to prevent kidney stones from forming.
Hang in there.
