Pumpkin – Boy or Girl??

When my mom was pregnant with my youngest sister, my other two sisters and I had so much fun guessing everything from the date she would be born, to the sex, to her height and weight…it made the birth a little bit more exciting (and interesting since we were are competitive with each other).  We’ve made it somewhat of a tradition – I still have the email chain from my first pregnancy with my family’s guesses…it was fun to see how close (or far) everyone was from the actual details!

I thought it would be fun to have a little contest on here so that you can make some of the same guesses for Pumpkin!

To make it as fair as possible, here is all the background info:

  • I went into labor seven days early with my son (gave birth six days before his due date).
  • My son was born at 12:18am.  My first labor pains began around noon the day prior.
  • My son weighed 7 lbs 5 oz and was 20 1/2 in long at birth.

    AJ - just hours after his birth!

  • Pumpkin’s due date: September 27
  • At my last sonogram (32 wks) Pumpkin was 4 lb 2 oz.  My Dr said that if he/she gained an average amount of weight, he/she would be about 8 lbs if I carry to my due date.  (My son was 2 oz more at the same appointment.)

If you’d like to participate, please guess the following:

  • Boy or Girl
  • Date of birth
  • Weight

For the purposes of the contest, I will go in the above order to determine who is closest (so the sex is the most important guess!).  The contest will close when I go into labor!!

Oh and the winner will receive a $25 Amazon gift card!!!  GOOD LUCK! =)

      • I definitely will!! And same to you!! I want to know as soon as you feel anything!!! You are probably the .001% who actually delivers on the due date!!! LOL.

    4. This is a little crazy b/c AJ and my son were the exact same size at birth! So going with that, I’m going to assign my daughter’s specs to your new baby!
