Don't you think? I think so.
Fellow Utah blogger Emily from Emily's Reading Room is having a baby too, and she put a "guess the date, weight etc" contest on her blog, which seemed like a good idea. So I'm totally stealing it.
Here's the deal-- I don't know what book you'll win. I have a pile that will probably grow over the next few weeks, and let's face it, even if I have this baby tomorrow (no, I don't think it'll be tomorrow) I probably won't manage to ship anything for a couple of weeks.
But the winner will get a list to choose from. Sound good?
So-- you comment and tell me the date, weight and length. Heck, I'll do winners for all three categories. If there's a tie, it'll be a drawing.
Here's some background-- Boo was born at 35 weeks, so subsequent pregnancies are automatically a matter of "keep this baby in as long as we can.... or at least until 36 weeks". Mister was born at 39 weeks, so clearly something's working. :D
Anyway, 36 weeks was yesterday. So as far as the doctor is concerned, anything is totally fair game. The actual due date is March 31st, but he will induce me the 24th or later if I want to be induced (and make it that far). (Here's a hint-- I'm sick of being pregnant. So I wouldn't guess the 31st. Heck, I wouldn't guess anything the 29th or later....) I am hoping to make it 1-2 more weeks from today, but one never knows.
As for size-- Boo was 5 1/2 lbs at 35 weeks... and probably would have hit 8 lbs if she'd gone full-term. Mister was 7 lbs 10 oz. They were 18.5 and 19.5 inches respectively. (I actually had to look that up. Wow... Some things you think you'll never forget....)
Anyway, so I wouldn't guess anything too small. :D Unless you think I'll be having her this weekend or something.
I will try to post weekly updates so that if the date you pick has passed you can have another chance. :D
So ready, set.... GUESS!
