A Guessing Game

We’re waiting patiently for the arrival of our littlest one. My official due date is September 20th, but I don’t put much faith into due dates. I have a “due month”. I’ve delivered #1 11 days late (from and adjusted due date – she was actually 30 days late from my first due date), #2 9 days early, #3 2 days early (right on time), #4 9 days late, and #5 5 days early.

Up until #5 (Emma), the girls were late and the boys were early, but she changed that pattern. I wonder if it was because we thought she was a boy until 2 weeks before she was born.

We don’t know what this baby is. We don’t know when it will decide to arrive. We do know that God has perfect timing. Anyone want to guess what it will be and when it will arrive? We could add size to the guesses, but that’s really not fair. They’ve been all over the place – 6 lbs. 14 oz., 8 lbs 2 oz, 8 lbs 6 oz, 9 lbs 4 oz, and 7 lbs even. Sorry, no prize for the winner. I don’t have time to be creative right now – I’m making a baby!

  1. My guess is a boy, and he will be late – somewhere around 4 or 5 days late. And, I'm thinking 7 lbs 3 oz. Just because it sounds big enough to be healthy and small enough to not get stuck =)

  2. Let's see…new moon on the 18th. That's my guess. 8 lbs. 1 oz. another girl!

  3. My guess is a boy, born on the 19th weighing 7 lbs 14 oz.

  4. Well, you have 3 girls, now its time for 3 boys… =) let's see hips are moving, but I think that did that with Emma & she was early….but boys… hmmm Sept.21 and 8 lbs and 2oz. Boys seem to be a little bigger…
