Baby Arrival Pool!

I think it is time for a contest, don't you?

We have less than 5 weeks to go until Sprog's due date, and I have had the odd day (like today) where the contractions have been strong enough to have me gasping and holding onto something. When I was pregnant with Willow, we had a huge number of friends and family who had birthdays in July, and everyone was trying to guess whose birthday she would land on. In the end she was born on two people's birthdays - my friend Yoko and GrandBag (the name would take some explaining - she is a friend of my grandmother).

So, my official due date is 2/1/11. Personally, I think I will be going earlier than that - but perhaps that is just wishful thinking. Please put your guess in the Blogger comments field. Please don't use the Facebook comment area for this because I won't be able to track them both - and you won't be able to see if someone else has already chosen that date.

And the prize? Well, if you are a knitter, the prize will be a skein or two of yarn. If you are not a knitter, I will make you something like a hat, sleeveless mitts, scarf, etc. - we can work out what you want/need if you win. The contest will close Wednesday, January 5th at 5pm EST.

Bring on the guesses!

Just a random picture of Willow - I hate to have pictureless blogposts, and the ultrasound tech I had this week was really grumpy - didn't speak to me unless solicited much less print off any pictures.

Who actually delivers on their due date. That being said I am going to say Feb 1 because that is my birthday. I actually think it will be 2 weeks early.

Kaye said...

I vote for 1/23/11. Because when she turns 34 her birthday will be on 1/23/45. Yeah!

Penny Karma said...

January 18. Day after MLK day, when everybody is taking time off.

Teri said...

Hmmm.... I wanted to say January 24th - but someone already took it! So I'm going to go with January 15th. Dharma picks January 22.

Stariel beat me to 28th (my bro's b'day), so I'm going to say Jan 5th - you're getting those contractions now, right? Good luck, whenever she decides it's her time xoxo

Just to be different, I'll go the other way, and say Feb 4. (But for your sake, I hope it happens sooner rather than later!)

Let me see. Portia's is the 13th. Guy's is today the 6th.
So how about the the 22nd. of Jan. of course. My pray of course is for a safe and healthy delivery.
Love Auntie Daryth.

This is what happens when you work your way backwards through your blog roll. I missed the cutoff! I just hope the date is the day you're ready for it to happen!
