You May Already Be a WINNER!!!

Ok, ok, I overacted. Apparently a woman can walk around fully dialated to 3cm for three weeks and not go into labor. To use my plane analogy, I suppose we've been in a holding pattern and are still waiting for the go ahead from traffic control. Due to my gestational diabetes my Dr. has scheduled an induction for this Tuesday at 6am. He doesn't want our baby to get any bigger than necessary, and I concur since I have to push this baby out.

So in honor of our potentially large baby, let's have a contest.
GUESS THE WEIGHT SWEEPSTAKES
Winner will receive one of the following prizes:
  1. 1 million dollars*
  2. Your biography featured on the Marielle Show Blog to bask in your winningness.
  3. A DVD featuring Marielle's first year of life. (Over 65 minutes of gripping footage!)
  4. Ryan's home baked banana bread shipped to your home (freshness not guaranteed.)
  5. The thrill of victory.
So leave your guess in the comments section and stay tuned for update on late Tues or early Wednesday. And while your at it, we still need baby girl name suggestions, any help would be appreciated. :)




*Money paid out over 10 years in monthly installments starting in year 2077. Nontransferable, winner must be living to accept prize.

I get to be first, cuz I'm the mom. I predict 7 lbs 2 ounces. I believe in the power of optimism.

Dad of the Year said...

9 lbs 8 oz.

Nathan and Sarah said...

9,8 was how big Molly was (no gestational diabetes to help with that number!) I am pulling for you so i am guessing 8 lbs 4 ounces! Still a big baby, but not huge! Good luck!

Sarah

Britt said...

hmm... I'm gonna guess 9 lbs 5 oz just cause :) And for girls names, well we're planning on naming ours Olivia, some other ones I think are cute are Lucy and Isabella. Good luck!

Alayne said...

Hmmm, I don't think you look very big at all, so I'm going to guess 7 lbs 8 oz. Good luck on Tuesday!!! We're so excited to meet the new Mullen!!!

Kate said...

I think she will be 7 pounds 11 ounces-- good luck!!! Can't wait to see pictures!!!

Your Cousin,
Kate

Jana said...

I love banana bread so I have to enter for sure. I'm guessing 7 lb. 15 oz. As for names, I always loved "Caroline". We'll be watching anxiously to see your announcement!

I'm going to predict 8lbs 2 ounces. That's what Brielle weighed...maybe your baby will too :)

Good luck with everything! Can't wait to see the new baby!

Melanie and Jarom said...

I guess 8lbs 1oz! You can use Lydia! Its always been my favorite name- or tell Ryan he can name her melanie after good ol' Captain Mel. My next favorite name is Mallory.

Dad of the Year said...

I actually campaigned for Lydia a while back. In fact, MK suggested it first, but then quickly tired of it, so it fell of the list.

Stacey said...

Good luck Mary Karlee, hopefully everything will go well and you will feel awesome after! Isn't that what we all wish for? I say she'll be 7 lbs 12 oz. What about the names Emily or Abigail?

Megan M. said...

All I have to say is if you think 7 lbs 2 oz is big, then poor Jenn has ginormous babies. My guess is 9 lbs 9 oz.

Megan M. said...

And my suggestion for a girls name is Jane - I've never met a Jane I didn't like...

PSC said...

Percy guesses 8 lbs 19 oz with the name Percylla (pronounced Persilla, with the accent on the "sill"- please call for futher clarification). Sarah guesses 8 lbs 5 oz. I am trying to think a name that starts with Mary (to stick with a theme) but I can't, so good luck!!

TheSycamores said...

How about 9 lbs 9 ozs? But I hope the baby only weights 7 lbs 3 ozs.

Texas Harveys said...

8 lbs 4 oz. Emma, Kate, and Capri are my favorites.

The Jorgensens said...

I had gestational diabetes (diet and exercise didn't work alone...I had to give myself 4 shots aday..I don't miss that)with my second one too and the baby was normal size so my guess is 7 lbs 3 oz.

Name: Emma, classic and cute.

Good LUCK!!

Favorite cousin in Arizona,
Liz Bachman Jorgensen

PS. Take your blood tester to the hospital just in case. My diabetes didn't leave for 12 hours and it took the staff a while to get around to checking my sugar. Good luck with the birth!

The Hamiltons said...

Mica was 8 lbs 14 oz and little Shawn was 7 lbs 9 oz. So I think that she or he will be 8 lbs 14 oz.
About the name I think that Isabelle is a beautiful name (this is a Portuguese name). But I found this web page that is really cool! http://www.babyhold.com/
Good luck on Tuesday!!!

James, Cameo, Jacob, Elijah said...

I will guess 8lb 3oz and I like the name Addison. Good luck tomorrow!! Very exciting - I can't wait to hear what "it" is!!

TheSycamores said...

My guess is 8 lbs 5 oz. I like the name Ryan G.II. Good Luck.
Grandpa Sycamore

jenn said...

I'm thinking 10lbs 13oz so that Jake won't be the largest Mullen born :") I can hardly wait for your little one to get here!

Nancy Bachman said...

We predict 7 lbs 7 ozs. Heidi, Steve's wife, may be having her baby tomorrow too.

Ally said...

I saaaayyy....hmmmm...let's go with 9 lbs 3 oz

jenn said...

Kurt's guess is 8lbs 8oz & his name suggestion is Marianne. He also thinks that my guess is impossible because jake will never be beat... i think you can do it :") i'm curious to find out if you tried the castor oil... i might call ryan in the morning to find out... good luck with everything tomorrow, we love you :")

PSC said...

I know you didn't clarify this but we're playing under Price is Right rules right? Closest without going over. Don't be changing the rules on us Mullens. We know you like to do that.
