Any Baby Guesses?

UPDATE 6/6/15:
Thanks for the guesses!


Baby is a BOY. Born 40 weeks, 2 days, weighing 10lbs, 3oz.
____________________________

We are coming down to the end of this pregnancy, and really only God knows when this baby is going to come out and meet the world. But that does not have to stop the fun of the guessing... if that is your thing.

The photos are approximately 38-39 weeks of each of my full term pregnancies.


Girl #1 (G) was born at 41 weeks, 1 day, and weighed 8 lbs 5 oz

Girl #2 (L) was born at 38 weeks, 3 days, and weighed 7 lbs 8 oz

Girl #3 (F) was born at 39 weeks, 6 days (1 day early), and weighed 7lbs 15 oz

Here I am at 38 weeks with the current one. I have gained the most weight this pregnancy, and am too big for all of the shirts previously pictured. I am fairly certain I am carrying lower than the other pregnancies, and that seems visible from the photos. Otherwise, pregnancy symptoms have been about the same as always, with maybe slightly less heartburn.

Fun facts:
  • My mom's parents had 3 girls and then a boy (then girl, boy, girl)
  • My parents had 3 girls and then a boy.
  • My sister had 3 girls and then a boy.
  • My dad's parents had girl, boy, boy, girl, girl, girl, boy.
  • My in-laws had boy, girl, girl.
  • Our close friends who are due a few days after us have boy, boy, boy, and a boy in utero.
So, any guesses? It is okay if you don't have any; it is just fun to compare while waiting to meet baby.

The surprise at the end is the most exciting/enjoyable part of labor, I promise. :)

  1. Ahhh, how exciting!! I feel like you look the most like #2, but it's definitely lower! I'm going to guess boy just for the sake of guessing boy :) Cannot wait to hear!

  2. Can't wait to see your babycakes! My instinct is girl, and I'm usually wrong :) Praying for a easy beautiful birth!

  4. When it's my pregnancy I prefer to be surprised midway. We waited til birth for my first one. With the others I have never needed extra motivation at the end but I really do appreciate some excitement at 20wks. I feel like that's the best way to spread the motivation around and optimize on the experience for me. I am glad ya'll don't feel as I do though because even I have to admit that when it is other people, it's a lot more exciting when they wait.

    I actually kind of think it's a girl.

    But because I think it would be neat (for me) I am officially going to say boy, on May 28, while Will and I are in Toulouse, burial place of Thomas Aquinas. Girl, girl, girl, boy was my family growing up, so it happens. 8 lbs 9oz. Can't wait to hear.

  5. Hmmmmm! I happen to be partial to the girl, girl, girl, girl.....so we can be twins if that's the case for you, but I'm going to officially guess boy. Just because, hey, why not? :)

  6. Looks lower Susanna. Must be a boy. I am glad you admitted that you gained the most weight with this pregnancy, me too. Do you know the heart rate? We don't know the sex yet either and its heart rate has been in the 140's. I am guessing girl for us hopefully a few weeks after you!! Good luck. You look beautiful.

    1. The heartrate has been right around 140 the past few weeks. Does it really make a difference?
