Take a Guess

My awesome friends made this cute board for a baby shower for me. Guests were asked to guess the baby's following statistics:

1) Date of Birth
2) Length
3) Weight

I thought it would be fun to invite anyone reading the blog to participate. So leave your guesses in a comment. I will give 5 points to the person who guesses closest to the date. I will give 2 points to those who guess the length right. And I will give 3 points to those guessing the weight right. As a tie breaker I would like you also to guess the TIME OF BIRTH and be sure to include am or pm. This will be worth 5 points.

The person who guesses well enough to earn the most points will be sent a fun prize. I will post who won and they can email me their address.  Sound fun?

Okay and to make sure things are fair, I will give you some general stats from past births.

Sabrina was induced overdue. She weighed 7 lbs. 14 ozs. and was 21 inches long.
Ann Marie was induced a full week overdue. She weighed 8 lbs. 6 ozs. and was 20.5 inches long.
Lauren was induced a couple of days overdue. She weighed 9 lbs. 4 ozs. and was 21 inches long.
Camille was induced a few days overdue. She weighed 7 lbs. 7 ozs. and was 19 inches long.

Does that help? Well, give it your best guess.

How fun! As a Doula, I always get a "guessing game" going while the Mom is IN Labor--it helps lighten the mood--and we even get the attending Dr and nurses in on it--along with the family members who pop in and out of the room.
Great idea!

Mindy said...

That board is ADORABLE!!! P.s. I am not guessing because I know nothing about baby heights, weights, and lengths ... Like, nothing. :) I don't even know how much I weighed etc. P.s. Just got back from CANCUN! I was scheduled to go to Xel-Ha but had to come home for a family emergency. Bummer. But we did eat at El Fogon (was that the name? Jon suggested it). What did you all get there? I got chicken quesadilla annnnd ... Hmm.) :)
