In Our Arms???

Oh, isn't this photo so sweet? The title of this post is "In Our Arms".

The question for all of you is...

When will we be holding little Carter in our arms?
Estimated Due Date: November 13th

It's so fun to hear and record everyone's guesses on the arrival of our little ones. I'll have to go back and check to see who was the closest with Isaac & Bella and post that another day. Today, however I'd like to start reading what you think. I will be 35 weeks tomorrow and a "full term" pregnancy is technically at 37 weeks. So this little guy could arrive anytime between October 23rd and November 27th. (Oh yes- big gap I know, but he very well could be two weeks late. I want him to come on his own time and will not ask to be induced until that date). For your guesses I'd like to know the following: Date of arrival, time of arrival, weight, and length. To assist you in your guessing I suppose I should remind you of my last two children.


Isaac was due October 27th. I was at the hospital in labor with him twice (32 weeks & 34 weeks), both times the labor was stopped with tributaline. Back in the hospital again at 35 weeks and 4 days with consistent strong contractions. He arrived the next day (Sunday) at 9:15pm weighing 7 pounds 11 ounces and was 19 and half inches. (May I remind you that the on call doctor did not attempt to up my tributaline but instead broke my water!)


Bella was due on April 4th. I didnt' set foot in the hospital with her until the wee morning hours of April 9th (Sunday). She was born 6 hours later at 8:14am weighing 8 pounds 14 ounces and was 20 inches long.

So there you have it- one child was a month early and the other was almost a week late!
I'm clueless on this one's arrival. The contractions come and go but nothing consistent.
Okay- so here's where your conscience comes into the picture. I want you to make your guess before clicking on the comments to see everyone elses. Write yours down and then go and post it under the comments. Don't change it once you see the others!

So click on the comments and post your guess or email it to me

Remember: Date, Time, Weight, Length
