Guess Again?

See that ticker? It's down to 8 days now, and today was the last date/weight guess. So ha! You're all losers! Wait, I'm the one who's still ridiculously pregnant and downing quarts of labor tea, evening primrose oil, and crawling around on my hands and knees to try and motivate this kid to come join us out here. Hmmmmm...perhaps YOU are not the loser.

But a few people have told me that they're sad that no one won. Or, more specifically, that THEY didn't win. Well, me too. So, if you want, feel free to guess again! Baby Boy Bailey is due 11/23, seems to have recovered from his bout of making us think he'd arrive early, and is quite cozy. We may not see him until Christmas. Meanwhile, I may have to invest in a muumuu in order to leave the house, because I am gigantic, as my friend Fran screamed at me in Federal Hill the other night while I was waddling to the thai restaurant for spicy curry, all in an attempt to induce labor.

So, when's he coming and what's he going to weigh? If anyone guesses more than 10lbs, you are instantly disqualified from all possible winnings, and possibly from our friendship.

Don't know what I'm talking about? Check out the Wanna Be a Winner? post from almost a month ago (le sigh).

  1. I'll guess the 18th, since that's my birthday, and I'd be more than happy to share the day with your little guy. I'll guess 8 pounds 14 ounces for weight, though I have to tell you my second baby weighed over 10 pounds, but her delivery was still way better than my first with a 8lb 7 oz baby, so bigger isn't necessarily harder! Good luck, it won't be long!

  2. Ok. Take two. I guess he'll be a Thanksgiving baby weighing 9lbs 2oz.

  4. I say Nov 22 because 11/22/2010 would be a great date. I like double numbers and evens :) so let's preserve the friendship and say 7lbs 14oz.

  5. I'll go with 11/20, weighing 8lbs 9oz. Do I get something for being the closest guess the first round? :)

  6. I think this will happen on the 26th - because after all that Thanksgiving food - there simply will not be enough room for that little boy! I actually believe this will go into effect Thanksgiving evening and will occur, more specifically, in the early morning ours of the 26th. I also believe that this big boy is going to ring in at 9 lbs - 5 oz....How could he not with all that Thanksgiving food, he's sure to get his share ;-)

  7. I'm going with the 30th (mostly b/c it'll make it easy for me to remember his bday - and I can use all the help I can get) and an even 9lbs.
