Let the Guessing Begin!

As you can tell from my baby countdown I have a little over a month left until Baby Buddy makes his debut appearance. I’ll now be accepting any guesses you all may have for the date of arrival, gender and any other baby info you can think of.

Here are some facts first:
I’m due to be delivered from my state of largeness on February 7th. I went five days past my due date when I had Lily and ten days with Malachi. Lily weighed 7.4 and Malachi weighed 8.4.

So here’s my guess: February 13th, a girl, 8 lbs. and incredibly cute.

One data point needs to be cleared up before I guess:

how long is your doctor/midwife willing to let you go beyond the due date? :-)

Oh, oh, oh!! Moriah was due on Feb. 7th! People kept saying to me (in a bright cheery voice) "Maybe she'll be born on Valentine's Day!". I would think "What sort of planet are you from where the aliens are so excited to think about going a week overdue so that their progeny can claim a semi-major holiday as their birthday?" and so on. And then on the way to hospital, James points out that hey! it's Valentine's Day. So in honor of my daughter, I will guess her stats, even though the mere fact that you already have a former member of the church where your father pastors daughter (follow that?) with these vitals must lower the probability of your child having them, somewhat, maybe, hmmm?
February 14th, girl, 8 lbs 13 oz

I tend to be very bad at this sort of thing, but I give it a try...

February 15, boy, 8 lbs 9 oz (said she in a decisive voice)

Sorry,Pentamom, I can’t answer your question since with both of my deliveries I went into labor on a day that I had an appointment set up to see a midwife and I imagine that it would have been at that visit that we would have discussed any further action. So I’ve never gotten to find out what they’d do if the kid refused to come out.

All right, since I've been told (to my FACE, no less!) that I'm getting "too technical," let me throw out a wild guess. ;-)

February 14, 8 lbs. 1 oz., a girl, and the sixth cutest baby in history.
