Baby Pool

Okay, bets are officially on, I want everyone’s guesses for this babe.

It will be born on the 19th, so no debating that one, what we don’t know is…

  • Gender:
  • Time of birth:
  • Weight:
  • Length:

So have at it 🙂 If I’m inspired enough the closest guess (not including gender!) in each area may even get a prize, or maybe just some internet love.

Things that might help:

  • I craved sweet things at the start of the pregnancy
  • Had very bad morning sickness until 20 weeks
  • My skin has been worse than usual
  • I carried straight out the front like I’d swallowed a bowling ball
  • Now I’m the same, but super low
  • The induction will start between 7 and 8am
  • With Declan the time from the drip beginning and him emerging was 11 hours 59 minutes (he was born at 8:28pm)
  • Declan was 3.7kg (8lbs 3oz)
  • Dan is 6ft4, I am 5ft9, Declan was 55cm (21.5inches) at birth

So have at it, leave a comment to place your bets 😀
