A little contest

We will have a new baby among us soon...

Juris Mater is just a few days shy of her due date, April 30th, and we are all awaiting the arrival of her newest little guy or girl. Our prayers are with Juris Mater for a healthy and safe delivery of her newest little bundle.

While we wait, I thought it would be fun to have a little contest. Who can best predict the date, time, birth weight, and gender of her baby?

I will give our naive readers one helpful tip: poor Juris Mater has gone terribly overdue with both of her previous pregnancies. She just recently reported to me that at 39 weeks, baby is still up in her esophagus ;-) So your a real risk taker if you place your bet on any day before April 30th!

The prize--bragging rights of course! We will announce the winner after baby arrives.

I'll start--May 8th, 1:00am, baby girl, 8lbs 9oz

Fun! Okay, I'm going with May 1st (Feast of the Ascension), 8:27 a.m., baby girl :)

Alright, as a mother who also has a very comfortable womb for babies to hang out in long past their due date... I feel that I owe it to Juris Mater to be optimistic. I am going to say May 4th, 15:10, boy. Keep us posted!

Juris Mater said...

May 11--Pentecost Sunday and Mothers' Day. I'm so jaded. Thanks for the optimism, Kat and Awol. Thanks for trimming off a couple days from the usual post-due length of time, Red. I'm using every natural labor-encouraging remedy known to mankind to make you optimists right and myself wrong this time around. I may have more evening primrose oil than blood running through my system right now.
2 a.m., 9lb 4 oz, baby girl.

May 2. If I'm right, you HAVE TO name him Athanasius. It'll be worth the shortened pregnancy. 11pm.

Friday May 9, 6pm so you have all night and weekend to rest! 9lb. baby girl.

There is still an outside chance that I may go into labor before Juris Mater. Odds aren't great at this point, but don't totally count it out!

Just to clarify, Texas Mommy isn't due until the end of July, right?

Love this, I'm going May 3rd, 10:02am, baby girl. We will be at the farm on May 3rd to go see some baby animals...so why not more babies!

Enjoy these last few days with the little one on the inside...they are a special time too (says someone who didn't have a late baby, so you can kick me now). And many good wishes for a smooth delivery!

texas mommy said...

Yes, that is correct! With JM's late babies and my early babies we may just meet in the middle in June!

Although, Our Lady of Fatima is hanging out there on May 13....
