I left, but now I'm back to use this space for the 3rd round of "when's the baby coming?"! (It's the easiest place for everyone to play and to reply to comments). You don't need a livejournal account to play, just comment anonymously, but put your name in the comment so I know who you are!
Here's the deal. If you can guess the exact date Pip will be born and the correct gender, you win a prize (probably something handmade by me). Remember, close only counts with horse shoes and hand grenades, so you have to get it exactly. No one won with Otto, and no one won with Henry. So, let's fill up the calendar and have a winner this time! One guess per person, and no picking a date/gender someone else has already picked! (You can double up with my guess and Sean's, since I'm not giving us prizes.)
Technical details: my "official" due date is June 1. Otto surprised everyone by coming a week before his due date, Henry came a week after his. This pregnancy feels pretty much the same as the other two, but I do feel as if I'm already dropping, so my guess is that this baby is coming earlier rather than later (but I was wrong both times before!). Sean's birthday is 6/7, and his mother and youngest brother share a birthday, so there is a precedent for that sort of thing. Also, if Pip hangs in there until 6/12, there will be the exact same spacing between Henry and Pip as there is between Otto and Henry.
I'm only including the range of dates that would allow me to have Pip at the birth center, so no funny stuff guessing a date outside of that range (I'm looking at you, carny-guy who said this baby is a Cancer). I will of course wait as long as Pip wants to cook, but I'd rather not go over 42 weeks. If we get to the end of this calendar and I'm still pregnant, I'll open it up for new guesses. I will try to update this list as people put their guesses in, but I don't live next to my computer, so you might want to browse comments before guessing to see if your pick is already taken.
