    So when Downtown has a baby, does that make he/she a suburb?

    I'll go with Dec 5 at ohh, 6 am.

    Good luck on the birth Downtown. My wife is aDoula, so I get to hear about every one she goes to. Savor it, if you can. Or even if you want to!
    You're more boring than you know.

    **snerk**

    My prediction of 11/23 {Mom's b'day} is toast. I think DT is gonna hang onto that clunker in her belly until 12/5, my sisters birthday, say, in the morning after the Dr. Phil Show.

    I have this strong feeling he's gonna be a 8 or 9 lb'er so..

    Just remember it is OK to grunt if it feels good! I sounded very much like Boudica the warrior queen in the delivery room.

    My guess:
    Monday, Dec. 1st, 4:00 pm
    9 lbs. at least

    Maybe she'll post Monday morning from work, but her water will break shortly thereafter...

    December 2nd (my mum's birthday) at 3.42 pm. Labour to start at sunrise, say 6.00 am for you guys at present? Oh, and I think it will be a boy.

    Pass the cigars.

    I think she'll go into labor around 6-sh in the evening on December 6th, have a great labor and have her son's beautiful face greet her and her husband right after midnight on the 7th.

    Downtown Beaten to the Labour Ward

    Sorry to muscle in on Downtown's thread but there has been an exciting addition to the Rem household over the weekend. It's a boy weighing 6 kilos and his name is Reuben.

    See photo below:













    He is 8 weeks old, a pure bred Labrador and as he is all black, we have named him after the incumbent captain of the All Blacks (Reuben Thorne).

    OOOH he is too cute

    As for DT - I have no guess - I am horrible at guessing baby stuff. Just make sure you keep us posted!

    Sorry kids - still prego this morning, with no end in site. This afternoon, at the OB they'll be doing an ultrasound and checking to see if i'm having contractions (which i don't think i am), so maybe we'll have a better idea. but i think jen's going to be right - this one is going to be a chunker. sigh. lets just hope for a little tiny pinhead.

    and as for the windows, the %&$*#$%!!! contractors are running yet FURTHER behind and aren't starting until tomorrow or Thursday. sigh.

    And Rem - your puppy is absolutely adorable.

    You know, you could go into your doctor complaining of trouble sleeping and headaches and they can induce you... My pal did it, she wanted that baby out so badly! As soon as she said those two magic words they got her an appointment to have the baby.

    I hope your windows come soon!

    Which would make me a winner in the baby pool. Go for it Downtown!

    My sister-in-law had shrimp and a whiskey sour (yes, I know!) on March 15 one year (at my brother's birthday dinner) and went into labor that night with baby #1. Three years later, brother's birthday dinner, she jokingly ordered the same, went into labor that night with baby #2. Baby #3 (July baby) came so fast, she didn't have time to get to a restaurant first.

    Good luck, Downtown, we're all rootin' for you!

    I've heard that going for a drive on a bumpy road can induce labour - probably the same principle as Jeff's suggestion.

    Not as fun as Jeff's suggestion, but more practical since you would already be in the car. I suppose you might combine the two.


    Rem - that is an incredibly adorable dog.

    Oh god. I cannot imagine anything more uncomfortable than, um, doing it, when you're 10 months pregnant. well, actually having the baby, i guess. unfortunately, this is the only method our doctor actually recommends to get things moving, and when she told us that, i turned right away to Rob and said "Sorry honey - no chance."

    And I don't think baby downtown will be sharing a birthday with NHPLanner. The midwife told me yesterday I "look good - too good" to have this baby any time soon. I guess I have to ugly up a bit before he's ready to come out.

    Day's not over yet....though my time prediction will be off.

    The update from the happy father:

    Hi, this is Downtown's husband. Downtown had our baby Sunday morning at 2:31 am. He was 8 lbs 2oz and 21 and a half inches long. Both he and mom are doing great. Downtown just wanted everyone to know
