Enter a comment below with answers to the listed questions. Winner for each question will get a prize! Voting closes on Monday, December 20th at midnight Central Standard Time (midnight between the 19th and the 20th)! See official rules below!
1. How much will Eddy weigh (bear in mind she’s scheduled to come at 37 weeks, 1 day)?
2. What will be her length (see above to take into account gestational age)?
3. Will she have a head full of hair or be bald/have a head full of peach fuzz?
4. What time will she be born (surgery is currently scheduled for the morning of December 22)?
5. What will be her name (you may guess first and middle names (please don’t post our last name!), but winner will be based on closest answer overall)?
-One entry per person (to encompass all five questions, or as many as you’d like to try to answer).
-If you’re the baby’s parent you may not enter. (Jim and I can’t win. :))
-US and APO/FPO mailing addresses only (sorry, but I’m not paying international shipping!).
-In the event of a tie, winners’ names will be placed in a hat and the winner will be chosen at random.
-You will be contacted by e-mail, facebook or twitter that you have won, so that you can let me know your address (if I don’t have it already).
-Winners will be announced as soon as possible following Eddy’s birth. Don’t hound me, though! 🙂
-It is possible that there will be no winner on some of the questions.
-It is possible that one person may win more than one question.
-If you have inside information you think will be useful, you may, of course, use it (such as if you know how much Jim and/or I weighed at birth, or what our lengths were, or if we had hair, family names you think we might use, how long a c-section takes, how much weight/length a baby gains after a certain gestational period, etc.), but no additional information will be given to ANYONE by us, and we ask that you don’t share your inside info (which would just bring down your chances of winning, anyway).
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me by e-mail, facebook or twitter, but no hints will be given, no matter how nicely you ask, or who you are (sorry, Mom!). 🙂
Here is the information I have shared on this blog or with people in recent days or weeks:
-Eddy is a nickname that I came up with in a fit of giggles one day. It does not, necessarily, have anything to do with her real name.
-“E” is her first initial, but no one knows her middle initial(s) or her full name except us (and our dogs and our cat).
-At 31 weeks gestation Eddy was estimated to be about 4 lbs, 9 oz.
-At 28 weeks gestation Eddy was estimated to be about 13-inches long
-Eddy’s sister, Angel, was 8 lbs, 6 oz and 20 inches long and was born at 39 weeks gestation (Eddy will be born at 37 weeks, 1 day gestation).
-Angel was born with a considerable amount of peach fuzz; my heartburn has been worse with this pregnancy (take from that what you will, depending upon whether you believe old wives tales).
For everything else you’re on your own! Good luck! 🙂
