Delivery Time Contest

My wife Rachelle and I are expecting our first child and we’ve spent the last 3 days laboring, tv watching, back rubbing and generally not sleeping.
We were due July 9th and are now expecting to deliver this evening (Sunday) or tomorrow.
In the comments, predict the time/day, sex (surprise for us too) and weight. Closest guess without going over wins a print!
Compliments of Baby Ulrich

    Many congrats, get some sleep now – while you still can…

    I predict a girl delivered at 12:10 AM Monday, July 19 (just so you too can always be confused if she was born on the 18th or 19th) weighing in at 7 lbs 14 oz. Go Team Ulrich!

    Sleep is out the question at this point for us both.
    Confused regardless, Mel.
    Remember to specify Day, Time, and Sex (Weight is a bonus!).

    I’ll say Girl, 7 lbs, Monday morning at 7am. Make sure to keep her moving, and get her in the shower when all else fails. Good luck.

    Good luck! I know all about all-night labors…

    I’m guessing a boy, 3:32am Monday morning, 7lbs, 7ounces.

    Some friends of mine just went through a 36 hour labor. Here’s to better luck. And congratulations.

    I’m guessing a girl, 7lbs 11oz born 1:38am 19 July 2010

    A beautiful baby boy, 8lbs 8oz (8 1/2, name him Marcello?) 8:30am Monday morning. Congratulations! Whoever he or she is, it’s so beautiful!

    I accurately predicted the birthday of a friend’s baby a couple years ago, but I don’t know if my abilities extend to the exact minute and hour. Even so, I’ll go with a boy born on Tuesday, July 20 at 2:39 a.m. But for both of your sakes, I hope the baby arrives sooner. Best wishes to you all!

    Oh Liz we are so beyond sleep at this moment that the thought of Tues makes me want to cry.

    Insider tip! On our way to the hospital 😉

  20. Posted July 19, 2010 at 2:54 am | Permalink

    8:40AM, 19 July, boy, 8lb 4 oz. Best wishes to you all.

    When my son was due, I had a “Name My Baby” thread going on Compuserve for weeks. (The fact that it was Compuserve tells you that it was 19 years ago…) Everyone had so much fun talking about names and the reasons behind them, though we ended up naming him Julian, which no one had suggested.

    Since you’re on your way to the hospital, I’ll just say Good luck and congratulations! You’re in for the journey of a lifetime.

    Insider skoop: still at hospital after a long night. Baby still taking it’s time to arrive.

    I predict you’ll have a girl, and that she’ll be born today (the 19th) at 3:12pm, weighing in at 8 lbs 9 oz. Your wife sounds like a trooper-congratulations and welcome to the wonderful world of parenthood!

    I am a fab knitter, in my sleep – How about knitted booties or two matching hats adult + baby for print, as the odds are getting too high and we already have the very spot picked out for your print – looking for alt ways to procure.

    This is bringing back such fabulous memories of my kids births, so worth the wait.

    Congratulations! Tuesday, at the stroke of midnight!

    Congratulations. Just enjoy it. My little baby (almost 20 now) was born on the night Steven Bochco’s Cop Rock premiered on tv. This amused me and the doctor, but not my wife. There were complications that did no damage in the long run, but the experience of childbirth is at the very heart of our lives and our eventual death.

    Tuesday around 2. It’ll be a girl.
