third time's the charm?

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.

damn, that was fast!

5/30. for no particular reason. Girl, because I'm siding with Otto on this one.

6/12 girl cause it's MY birthday

saw it on FB.

5/28, girl.

Why isnt there an option for "Whenever its damn good and ready" ??

:D

Seriously though... I'm gonna have to go with 6/13 Girl. Cuz our little girl was on 6/13... and it woudl be easy for me to remember. :D

eris_devotee and I are thinking alike! I'm pretty sure that was my guess on the day I found out you were pregnant. Great minds and all that. Okay, I'll go with 5/28 and boy, then.

May 31, girl!

How cool would it be to share my birthday with an Aaberg?

It's even a Feast Day!

I'm going with girl and 5/25.

i'd like 6/4 girl because that's my birthday!

Alrighty then. I'm going with the lunar thing: May 27, girl (Chris)

Already taken, guess again!

6/1 boy [because i am always wrong.]

So exciting!

5/24 girl

What a wonderful time of year to welcome a new baby! Congratulations.

oops - didn't mean to be "anonymous"

...it's Megan from MonkeyBeans...

5/20 BOY. mainly beacuse samuel was a week late and albert surprised everyone by being 10 days early. :) and I figure, with the third pregnancy, you want it over sooner rather than later. ;)

so exciting, hang in there!

6/3 girl
My sister Hillary's birthday.

6/8 girl. i don't know why.

Debbie (aka MOM) says 6/13, boy. (It's my parents' 30th anniversary.)

We'll try this again.
6/5, Girl

(Chris)

6/11 girl (Just gotta have one girl in the mix eventually! and super healthy!!!)

I think you got in there under the wire, cuz the kid wasn't born yet, but Hm, you knew she was in labor, so you had kind of a hint on the day....maybe you just get 50% of a gift for guessing the sex.

Great, I never knew this, thanks.
