Predictions

August 25, 2010 at 10:16 am 21 comments

I was planning on doing this next week but the way I see it, the longer I wait, the easier it’s going to be to guess. Every day that goes by is another day that we know Jansen is not making his arrival. Over the weekend I asked a lot of my family to make their predictions. I’m not going to mention what any of them were, but it was surprising to see how similar many of them think.

So I wonder, Blogworld, do you feel the same way? When do you think the little one is going to make his debut? What will his stats be? Take a guess! Maybe I can come up with some sort of prize for the person who gets the closest (don’t hold your breath though!).

Leave your comment and take a guess at his 1) arrival date 2)weight and 3) length.

A few bits of info to help you make your guess:

-I was early
-Stephen was 3 weeks late
-I weighed 7 pounds 11 ounces
-Stephen weighed 11 pounds
-I have no idea how long I was
-Stephen was like 23 inches, I think
-Jansen’s official due date is September 19
-As of 30 weeks, he was measuring in the 54th percentile
-As of this morning, I’m 2-3 centimenters dialated

And…. go!

    I heard that Heather and I guessed the same weight and length. Stephen was just shy of 23″ long. We had a similar pool going before Stephen was born, no one guessed his size correctly, or even close! I think Melanie won that one. Can’t wait to meet my grandbaby boy!!!!
