Fun poll about baby stats
Fri, 01-23-2004 - 7:23am
Stolen from another site.

Did you have your babies before, on or after their due dates?

What where their stats?

DD1 was born 14 days before her due date. She was 4 lbs 11 oz and 16.5 inches long.

DD2 was born 10 days before her due date. She was 7 lbs 1 oz and 20 inches long.

DD3 was born 5 days before her due date. She was 7 lbs 6 oz and 19.75 inches long.

Even though she was born before her due date I felt like I was over with DD3 because I had never made it that far before.

Dd was born the day before her due date. Her bday is my parent's anniversary and is also my brothers birthday (my mom spent her 25th wedding anniv in labor and having a csec). When I got pg with dd and her due date was the day after her birthday, my brother tried to convince to have her on his birthday. He was 13; he didn't understand how those things work. I assured him it wouldn't happen. Then it did! lol

Ds was born on his due date. I was induced with him due to high BP. But, that morning I lost my plug, had bloody show and had contractions anyway, so I think he would have been born that day regardless.

Oh yeah ... dd was 7lbs, 7.5 oz. 21 in.

Ds was 7lbs, 7 oz. 20 in.

Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color.  Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

DS1 born 2 days past his due date. Weight 7 lb. 8 oz., 20 inches long.

DS2 born 35 minutes before his due date, LOL! Weight 8 lb. .5 oz., 21 inches long. He was born on his cousin's 15th birthday.

DS1 was due on Valentine's Day. But President's Day was the day after Valentine's Day. I was still working but really didn't want to go back to work after President's Day but wanted to get the paid holiday. So I really wanted DS1 to be born on 2/16. And he was, the dear.

They had a hard time figuring an exact due date for ds. Started as April 10, then they said April 18. He was born April 16.

He was 8lbs 13oz and 22.5 inches. HUGE. And I'll never forget, while I was IN labor, the dr feeling my abdomen and saying "Oh, I'd say we have about a 6 pounder in here...." then right after we were born the dr looks at me and says "Where were you hiding him?!" NO ONE thought I'd have such a big baby-I'm not a real big person to begin with, and had only gained about 27lbs, and my stomach wasnt even that big (I could still wear some normal clothes!). We decided he must have been wrapped around my spinal cord, LOL.

Dd was 8lbs 11 oz and (I think) 21 inches. Dh doesnt remember her due date, but is pretty sure her birth mother went overdue by about a week. She was born April 5.

DD was born THREE WEEKS late. It turns out they probably just estimated wrong. Still, it was a long three weeks! She was 7 lbs. 8 oz.

DS was born one week early, causing DH to miss the birth. He was at a job interview and the airport shut down due to snow. My mom and sister attended the birth though. DS was 7 lbs. 13 oz.

My DD was born a full TWO WEEKS after her due date. She was 8 lbs and 6 oz. and 20 inches.....full head of hair and very alert newborn.

My DS was born one week after his due date. He was 9 pounds and 2 oz and 20.5 much hair as his sister. Everyone in the nursery said how huge he was...he never even lost weight at discharge...he's been gaining ever since. At 8 weeks he was 16 pounds (and he's bfeeding so it wasn't because he drinks a ton of formula)

I have no idea what its like to have a tiny fragile newborn. Neither of my kids fit into those tiny newborn diapers and by the second week, my DS was in size 2 pampers. LOL

I went into labor with DS1 on his due date. He was born 3 days later via c-section. They kept telling me how small he was, and that I wasn't working hard enough with regards to delivering him. He was 8lbs. 14 oz and 24 inches long, not that little at all!

DS2 was a scheduled C-section. He was a week early, and we were able to ensure that he had his "own" birthday. My side of the family has 6 birthdays on the day surrounding DS2 birth. We have now locked up the 7th through the 14th of the month with family b-days. Since he was a week early he was only 8lbs. 9 oz and 21 inches long.

DS was born 22 days early. I had toxemia and he was born via emergency c-section. He weighed 6 pounds 4 ounces and was 19 inches long. He was also in the NICU when he was born as his breathing was rapid.
