My new midwife came yesterday for a home visit. All went well and Keira and Mike got to here Little Bean's heartbeat as well. Then Keira borrowed the Doppler and proceeded to listen to her heartbeat, daddies, mama's and her doll Alice. BP is good, baby is good, and mama is tired, cranky, and uncomfortable. 49 days to go. Next appointment is week 35 check up on Labor Day and then its weekly until baby decides to make his appearance.
We are taking bets and predictions on arrival date and birth weight. I'll give a few hints.
Keira was born on June first. Her NFP due date for all your savvy NFPERs was June second. Her actual due date was June 4th. She was 6 lbs 10 oz and I had gained 40 lbs.
This guy's due date is Oct 14th, NFP due date is somewhere between Oct 9th-Oct 11th based on day on conception. I am one day shy of 33 weeks and have gained 40 lbs.
My predictions..... day of birth. Oct 10th. Birth weight 7 lbs 5 oz. Of course this is all speculation.... lets hear some other bets. No predictions before 37 weeks please ( which I think is Sept 22nd or 23rd) ! He has to be at least 37 weeks to be born at home. Winner reserves the right to be the first viewer of the freshly born babe.
