All Jump in the Betting Pool

OK all jump in the betting pool!

I'm taking a cue from Michelle at Michelle's Path and running my first ever contest! Today we heard from our birthmom, and at the doctors today she found out her due date is March 31st, give or take a week. So here's the contest:
  • Leave a comment on this post with your guess of date and time the baby will be born.
  • Person who comes closest without going past the actual birth will win
  • Your deadline for entering the contest will be Midnight Friday, March 20th OR if I post before then that we got the word that the baby is on the way. Then entry will close.
  • I will make a post announcing the winner and I will send you an Arizona themed prize!

To help your guessing, I can say that the expectant mom is 29 years old, and this is not her first child. Apparently that matters in predicting births.

Good Luck!

I'm jumping in to say that I think it will be fitting for you guys to have an April Fool's baby.

April 1st 2009


That's my plan for you! Ha ha ha!

Oh Kathryn!! (PS you forgot to say TIME OF BIRTH)

Kathryn said...

I'm going to go with 12:03 am, just so she can show you how much of a button pusher she will be!!! She'll make you think that she'll be a due date baby all along, and then, at the last minute... show up on April Fool's Day!

P.S. Are you guys ready for this? Are you completely panicking? Are you unbelievably excited??
Can we do an online shower for you???
That would be so fun!

March 28th. I say this because Kayla was our birth mom's 2nd baby and she was 3 days early. Birth mom was induced, but still 3 days early. And Im saying 2:34 pm...its our lucky time...Kayla's birth time! Notice a pattern here? LOL!

I'm going with March 27 (my fave #) at 3:03 a.m., since both of my girls were born at 3-3:15 a.m. -- and when I win, I'll share a Calif-theme present. A girl! yippee! -- susan (mommy3 for a couple of my online zones)

I'm giving it six more days, March 21st, ten days early. That's my guess. And to keep it simple [mainly because I have no clue!] let's go with 2:10 pm because the sun will be shining and the day will still be fresh, like you brand new daughter!

It will be induced and delivered via C-Section.
