The End is Nigh!

Today marks 37 weeks, and I am happy to be home from our Christmas trip to El Paso, undelivered. Now that I'm home and a safe twenty minutes from the hospital, bring it. This baby and I are not too happy with the tight compartments and the fight for space can't last too much longer. In honor of Q's imminent arrival, we are going to play

"Predict the Pounds!"

Rules: Guess baby's weight closest and you win!
Rewards: A sense of pride in your psychic skills AND one pound of Sees Candy. We'll send you the gift certificate if you have a Sees nearby, if you don't, we'll mail the box of candy straight to you.

Some clues to get your guessing juice going:
  • Marielle weighed 8 lbs 12 oz and Jenna weighed 8 lbs 11 oz.
  • No gestational diabetes with this pregnancy
  • I was overdue three days with Marielle, one week early with Jenna
If you want to really show your psychic abilities you can guess the birth date too, but know that if you guess anywhere past January 20th you are automatically eliminated. This mama does NOT want to go overdue. Happy Guessing!

Lee - you're playing with fire.

Nice to see the predictions roll in. Since we've had a few comments on buzz as well so to avoid double guesses --
Spragues 8-4
Ben 8-10
Kimi 8-2 on the 19th at 10:37pm

And while I'm here, I'll throw in my guess...7-9, here's hoping!

Jenae said...

Katie said...

8 lbs 15 ounces. And if I win, that's how much Sees I want too.

Dad of the Year said...

Katie - we looked for bulk materials cheap enough to offer in the precise birth weight as incentive. The only things cheap enough are wheat, styrofoam, and circus peanuts. Let us know which you prefer.

Aaron n Jamie said...

8 lbs 13 oz. - I am thinking boy on January 18th. Blonde hair, 5 toes, 5 fingers.... hopefully I get something right!

Rachel said...

Hi MK! I have an induction date on the 21st, but I am positive that things will happen even earlier. I hope for you too! January 14th weighing 8-12. and being a boy at that! Love, Armstrong

Annie said...

8 lb 12.7 oz. girl on the 18th.

Christy said...

Well I was going to guess 6.13 until I read about your first two. Hmmm. How about 7.13. Here's wishing you a smaller baby. She's coming Jan 17th at 3:30 am.
Best wishes!

Karisa said...

I'm so excited for you! I'm on a diet so I won't guess, because I would LOVE to have some See's candy, darnit.

Dad of the Year said...

Katie - I'll see what I can do. I can't promise they'll be shelled before they're dipped, tho.

Dad of the Year said...

Justin Sycamore - $1.....oh wrong game.
Shirley Sycamore - I guess 8 lbs 5.8 oz. He will be born January 18th. Send me my See's. I like nuts and chews!
