37w5d - Shall we try to guess The Bean's birth weight?

As the final days tick by, I find that my clothes no longer fit. My pants won't stay up, my shirts won't stay down and I've given up caring. LOL I get lots of comments about being ready to pop and how big the belly is. Surprisingly, they don't bother me - they're right, this belly IS big.

So, I thought it might be fun if anyone who is interested officially puts down their guess for birth weight (assuming we make it to the c/s date on 07/07/07 which I think we will) in the comments. Who's game?

Background info: He's been measuring ahead since the NT scan. Last fundal height put me 3wks ahead. Ultrasound at ~32wks guessed 5lb 15oz. The one at 36wk0d guessed 8lb 11oz. My c/s will be at 39w1d.

My first son was born 8 days ahead of his due date at 8lb 8oz and 22.25in long. Hubby and I are both just about 6' tall. If you want to include a guess on length - feel free. I'll update my guess later, don't want to skew anyone's guesses.

My goodness it sounds like you will birth a toddler.

My guess: 9lbs 9oz. 23 inches

Probably a good thing it will be by c/s Good luck!

My guess is that you will have a small elephant (female) and will have to change the name! Truly I guess 10 lbs.

I'm guessing an even 9 lbs.

I'm beginning to have the same issue with my clothes - and I've still got six weeks to go! I pulled out the Bella Band, so at least I'm not exposing my stomach to the world (haven't reached the point of not caring yet, but I'm sure I'll get there!).
