It's Time to Play: Guess that Birthday!

pony belly

Here I am at 36.5 weeks, complete with a pony. I thought we should have a contest, the same way I did with Henry's birth, where whoever guesses closest wins their favorite candy bar.

I would put the details of my other kids' births, but I try to be vague about that sort of thing due to identity thieves, who I am sure are devouring every bit of information on my fascinating posts, hoping to take over the lives of my children so that I can serve them hand and foot every day. Well guess what identity thieves, if you show up at my door, I will refuse to serve you!

So here are a few tidbits:

Both other kids were born around 38 and a half weeks. I was not careful to chart certain events this time, but I think 40 weeks is around March 10.

The ultrasound due date this time is March 6.

St. Patrick's Day is the March 17, and Alex did serve an LDS mission in Ireland, so there's that. If I do not deliver before the 17th, I feel quite certain that All Hell will Break Loose.

oh yeah i'm first! i guess Feb 28.

Jen said...

Thank you Melissa, I heartily approve that guess!

Jess said...

I guess March 5th!

Jessi said...

Hmmmm. Maybe March 2? That is my Grandpa's birthday and he was a really good man.

Linz said...

Squee!!! My daughters birthday is March 17, so I am inclined to guess that day - BUT I, for your sake, would not wish that amount of lateness on anyone. SO - my guess is

March 1st!

I'm so excited for you!!

Tallness is a true gift, especially in pregnancy. You look like I did at six months. But cuter.

I'll guess March 2 because I like 3/2/11 as a birthday. I hope, though, that Melissa is right. For your sake.

I'll be right there to help you break that Hell loose all over the place. I wouldn't wish that kind of overdue-ness on anyone.

As far as birthdays go March 8th is Colby's bday and he doesn't need any excuse to feel extra special, so we'll go pre-3/8 and guess 3/1/11. A March Fool's baby! :)

Queen Elizabeth said...

Too brain dead to guess. Sorry. But I do know that you are adorable. In your wedding picture, too. Hang in there! (I feel your pain - which is why I am resisting my 5 year old's pleas to procreate once again.)

angela michelle said...

I'm going to guess Feb. 23 because that's the day my husband has decreed our baby will be born, so it's an auspicious date. You look absolutely fantastic. So glad you're feeling better!

Kimi said...

Definitely Feb 27th because that may or may not be the birthday of one of my children and it's a rad day.

Thora said...

March Second - it's my oldest's birthday. If it were a leap year, I'd say Feb 29, just because that's crazy. I have a cousin born on leap day - she seems to like it. But that would mean you'd be pregnant for the next year, so in the interest of you not exploding, we'll go with March second.

Gina said...

I'll take March 6 for no particular reason. I was going to pick the full moon in march, since that's when I went into labor with Jackson, but it's not until March 19th, and I wouldn't wish that upon you.
You are looking so cute! Here's to baby #3!

The Yoder's Four said...

February 25th! Because that's 9 days early like my Luke was. And also it's George Harrison's birthday.

The Lemmon's said...

I was going to say the 23rd since my daughter would share that birthday, but since it's already been said I'll guess the 24th. Whenever it ends up I hope it's a memorable and happy time and it goes exactly as you want it to. Keep us posted!! You look adorable too, by the way!

Kate said...

I don't have a guess, but I love that pic. The pony is really the icing on the pictographic cake.

Mary said...

I guess 3/3 since that is boys day in Japan and it is a double and the baby could be born at 3:33 or something awesome like that!
Wow, you've always come before your due date -- jealous! Still waiting for that to happen.
My dad's birthday is on March 6 -- he's turning 80 this year and we just found out on Monday that he has cancer -- oh, sorry that was a downer. I'm sure he'll be fine.
You look super cute and I'm already as big as you. Good luck with the babe!

Marie Says Yes said...

though i would wish for you to give birth asap, i'm going to say march 7, because i was due on march 7, and i am a very nice person.

Tigger said...

I want to say March 4th, because that day tells a command. :)

But I think my real guess should be something like February 25th.

I am excited to see when he comes!

My5wmd said...

March 7th. All numbers would then be prime - 3/7/11. Also, no one has chosen it yet. My favorite candy bar is dark chocolate (see me being proactively positive there?) Whenever it is, I hope it all goes well.

My5wmd said...

I see someone already said March 7, but I'm not changing. You'll just have to buy 2 bars if we're right.

msjvd said...

March 5. What do I win? Will you use my choice on the name, if I guess right? JETHRO HERE WE COME!

Holly said...

I hope we both deliver the same day, because I can't stand to be pregnant any longer and I'm sure you can't either. I'm due Mar 7, so it's possible right? Here's to being early..... I don't care which day...

Paulette said...

I'm going to say March 7th.:) Good luck!

PotsandPins said...

You are TOO cute! Okay, here's my guess: Friday, March 11th...or Monday the 14th...no wait, that's too long of a time for you to suffer...okay, here's my final offer: Wednesday, March 9th. I was born on the 9th, and that was an excellent day...March 9th...at 2:30 pm...just try, I heard that's the best time of day for a baby to be born! Good luck!! xo, Nan

Heidi said...

I'm going with 3/3/11. Because that would be a fun date to say. And it will be early morning. ;) Good Luck

Tigger said...

No one else has said March 4th, so I think this Friday would be a fabulous day! (Since you didn't go last Friday. :)

March 16th:)
