39 weeks and a contest!

*updated with photos



One of the best parts of pregnancy- especially at this stage- is playing the guessing game: Is this sweet one a boy or a girl? Will I deliver late? Will I need to be induced? How big will this baby be? Who will this little one look like? What color hair will he or she have?

So, indulge me if you will, by participating in our Baby Contest. Here's what you get to do:

Guess the following four outcomes about our baby:
1) birth date [My due date is officially February 19th, but read the rest of this post before you make a guess on this one!]
2) time of birth
3) weight
and last, but certainly not least:
4) boy or girl?

To help you out, here are the stats on our first two babies:
Ella
Ten days late
12:12 pm
9 lbs, 9 oz

Isaac
Eight days late
9:51 am
9 lbs, 10 oz

To enter, just leave a comment with your four guesses. Please make sure to leave your name! The prize will be a $15 gift certificate to Amazon or a $15 Starbucks gift card. Winner's choice.

Happy guessing! I can't wait to see all of your responses!

  1. I will indulge you. ;-) And it is extra indulging because I NEVER get this kind of stuff right! So I think I stopped trying at one point. Isn't that funny - no matter what I guess I'm always wrong. Completely wrong. Not that it's a big deal but just kind of funny. Anyhow, enough about me. On to this little babe!

  9. But I don't want any prize. The prize (since I know I will win) can go to second closest. My prize will be holding that newborn (nephew or niece) when I'm staying at mom's while she's in Haiti!

  14. I do want the prize if I win and if Stef wins I will take her prize! I am probably the least qualified to guess but it can't be much harder than sports betting right?

  16. Stef- I didn't know you were staying at mom's when they're in Haiti. Since when? For how long?

    Micah- Ha! Leave it to you to claim Stef's prize. (Should I label it?)

  28. I should just rely on my husband's comment because he always wins these things, including our last baby's due date. Who wants their baby born on Cinco de Mayo and then actually has it happen???

    But I'll give it a go:

    2)12:42 p.m.
    3) 8 even
