Now that I am at 38 weeks my brain is FULL of thoughts of ...When is she going to come? Is she going to be early? Is she going to be late? How can I get this girl to come out on time? On one hand I might not be having so many of the "very special and magical" pregnancy feelings so much anymore ...on the other hand, I know I am getting very close to having to be responsible for another human being and keeping her alive etc! SCARY! So in summary --- I am torn between get her out of me/I can't wait to meet her and please don't come too soon!
So just for fun, I found Madame Zaritska at the Pregnancy & Baby website who gave me her "all seeing prediction" for when BabyGirl is going to come:
The day you deliver, outside will be rainy. Your baby will arrive in the late night. After a labor lasting approximately 17 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 6 pounds, 12 ounces, and will be 22-1/2 inches long. This child will have medium hazel eyes and fluffy brown hair.
Okay...that's freaky because there is ALL kinds of rain in the forecast the next couple of weeks and also because I didn't tell "her" that I was having a girl! Not to mention that I have hazel eyes.
I thought I would go to a much more reliable source, our family and friends, to give us THEIR best predictions on when BabyGirl is going to come...some provided more information than others. It was so fun to read through all of these...here they all are!
