It's a Baby Pool!!!

Holly and I were talking last night and realized that we haven't started a pool for when you all think this baby is coming. Here's the scoop, so you are all well informed before entering:

The actual due date is January 13. This is the same due date the twins had, they were born on Dec. 19. At our last appointment, our Doc said she expected me to go into labor at any time. If for some odd reason, I do not go into labor early, she offered to induce me a week early since I tend to labor fast and that way we could make sure I get to the hospital in time.

Here are the rules for the pool:

Most pools have great prizes for winning. This is not one of those. I would love to offer something cool, like a gift card or something, but I know that the winner would not receive their prize since I will be taking care of 4 kids and I would have a hard time sending it out, I really do not need anything else on my to-do list. Also, most pools cost a buck or so, but this one is free since their are no prizes. If you really want to pay an entry fee, just send us some money. It will not be refused.

No real rules, just leave a comment with your prediction of date and time this baby will be born. You can enter as many times as you like, and the winner will get a great shout out by me on this fabulous blog, with a link to your blog if you have one. See, isn't that better than a real prize? Hey, this blog is read by several people a day, so you might get some good bragging rights there!

Good luck!

Without all the details like dilation or thinning I am just going to guess. My birthday is Dec 20th so that is a great day. However since that is just a day after the twins I will guess
Dec 27th @ 4:30am 8lbs 5oz and 22in. I know I won't win I just pray you will have a healthy baby they are wonderful and also that you get to take him home w/you:o)

My want is for a healthy baby born on Tuesday, December 16th, 10:19am.

Most likely since I will be out of town the 19th-23rd, it will happen then.

If it does, are you going to do it again so I might be able to be there for one of your children's births?
