Contest

Have you ever tried to take a picture of the side your pregnant belly? Well, don't. It's not worth the stretching of yourself and your clothing and trying to not show how thick you are in the behind. And besides, you'll go to upload it to your blog and realize that there was no memory card in your camera anyway.

So you will not get to see a nice vivid illustration of Henry's bump. However, I would like to offer the chance to win a chocolate bar of your choice. (Or a batch of this granola, if you are less inclined to eat brown silky heaven by the ounce.) Leave your guess as to when the baby will be born in the comments, and whoever is closest will win.

A few things to consider:

Original due date: May 3
Ultrasound due date: April 24
First child born: 9 days before original due date, 7 days before ultrasound due date.
My birthday: April 14
I have two aunts who have had children on their birthdays.

PS. You can guess the same day as someone else. I don't mind multiple winners.

April 30...(although I hope it's on your b-day!)

Heidi said...

April 22. Because I'm not as cruel as Leisha. Eight days can make a big difference, no?

May 9. Oh wait... that's my birthday. Can I have some of the granola ANYWAY, Jennifer?

My guess is going to be April 30. And I am going to hold you to the entire batch of granola. ;)

Melissa said...

April 20th 10:45:19 A.M. PST Wait, did you want us to be that specific? :)

Nan said...

The Garth Brooks song is hilarious! And Brilliant! I want to give you my guess...May 7th at 8:14 a.m. I almost hated to guess past your due date because I would hate for anyone to go longer than necessary!!! Good luck to you! Nan

I'm going with April 12th. The thirteenth is 9 days before but the 12th is a nice even number. Plus I think you'll go that early this time. You seemed ready (no offense intended at all) last time I saw you. I can't wait!
Love,
Brittany

April 15. I had a baby on April 15 and she is a sweetheart (and then you'll always be sure to have your taxes done on time!)

Jill said...

I will guess April 27. It's my son's birthday, and my wish for you is that your baby is as sweet as mine!

msjvd said...

Did I win yet? Oh wait. If this was over, then I definitely wouldn't have won. So there's no possibility I could have won.. yet.

Could I have a sample of the granola anyway? You know... as inspiration?

I am going with April 26th. It is Samantha's birthday, no? I wanted my son to be born on my birthday - which would have been 3 weeks early, like me for my Mom. No - he came 8 days late. Each day post due date is like living another 9 months pregnant! Can't wait to see...how about posting the granola recipe? Or did you and I am just "up in the night!"

msjvd said...

April 22. That's my final guess. Someone else already had April 30, so I'll take April 22nd. Thanks! I'll send the address for the granola.

btw my sister in law takes some really cute pictures of her belly in the bathroom mirror for her blog. i could never do it because i would have a funny expression on my face, but she looks cute and i am sure you would too.

I'm going to say April 17th because that is my birthday and it seems to be a popular day for many other birthdays. I even share it with my mom's childhood best friend and my brother-in-law. So why not with Henry.

I'm guessing April 21st. Its my late Grandfather's bday and he was a very humorous and honorable man!! If you have him on that day maybe consider the middle name of Ralph, which was my grandpa's name. Henry Ralph LOL, nice ring to it. HAHA

Angie Lewis said...

I'm going with April 21...I really don't have any reason at all other than that is what popped into my head! :) Best wishes to you - I can't wait to win the contest...

Helen said...

Okay, Jane and I both had our first sons on the day before each others birthday. So my guess will be on April 25. Just hoping for a healthy happy baby and a not too stressful delivery!

Susan Vilate said...

I'm gonna say the 22. That sounds like a good day. Plus, it's a Tuesday. Plus Plus, you just look ready.

Jen said...

Congrats to Helen, the winner! He was born at 3:10 p.m. on the 24th.
