    Hi ladies

    It's been super quiet on here the last couple of weeks and I am getting bored of the last trimester and need some distractions.

    SO -- plenty of people have probably made their own bets about your birth, but thought it might be fun to see what we are all betting for ourselves.

    The only rule is you can't do a non committal answer - you have to make a choice (eg girl or boy - even if you're team yellow and have no idea like me!)

    Mine -
    1. Girl or Boy? -- at the moment leaning towards boy but that's maybe because it's what people have been guessing for me. For the first two trimesters I thought girl.
    2. Delivery weight -- 8lb 6oz
    3. Date of birth -- 9.9.16
    4. First letter of first name -- hmm maybe J?
    5. Time of birth -- 4:35pm
    6. Natural or c section -- natural?
    7. Induced? -- yes
    8. Length of labour -- 32 hours (would still be a fair bit shorter than baby #1!)
    9. First visitor (non partner) -- our daughter millie
    10. Hair or bald? -- hair

    Be interesting to see how close we all are to our guesses! Summergurl you're expecting a big baba then?!
    And wow lexi a 3 hour labour! Hope you don't live too far from the hospital!!! Was your first a quick one? Millie took ages (ended up emergency section) so I'm kind of expecting a long labour again! Will be a shock if it's a 3 hour one!

    Xx

    Wow Summer that's a long labor I can't remember is this your first? My first was 25 hours very exhausting no Braxton hicks just straight to contractions. Hopefully you are not contracting that long.

    So Flexi 3 days early I hope I go with you but just got back from appointment and he is barely engaged even with all the Braxton hicks I've had this week he's just in there playing around.:nerner: lol

    Yeah it's my first. I would love a quick one but if I mentally prepare myself for a long time then anything less is a bonus!

    I'm preparing for another long labour especially because it is going to be induction unless I go before induction date, but part of me is thinking if it ends up being a quick one I'm going to be hugely unprepared! Haha. Worried if it starts naturally that I will sit around at home for ages and then end up giving birth in the car! Xx
