Contest and Preggo Update!

I've been meaning to get this posted for a couple days now....but I am too tired to blog---or do anything else for that matter!

Today I am officially 35 weeks and 1 day pregnant. I went to the dr. on Tuesday. This was not a fun day---at all!!! I got less than 3 hours of sleep the night before so driving myself down there was probably not the safest thing to do. I also had a horrible headache and was nauseated for the whole drive (there and back). Dr. H checked me and told me that I am a tiny finger tip dilated. That mean nothing because it is less than 1 cm. Originally we had decided that if I could make it to Sept. 26 (38 weeks 3 days) that I would get induced that day. Now Dr. H. doesn't think I will make it that long so we will decide a new induction date at my next appt--which is on Wednesday. He also told me to take it easy and stay off my feet as much as possible--I'm not totally sure how to do this, but I am trying.

So...the contest starts NOW!!!! Leave me a comment with your guess of when this baby will be born. Also include how much you think she will weigh and anything else you feel like. I promise the winner will get a really cool prize!!!! I'll even give you some more stats to help you out:
  • My official due date is October 8th
  • Giggles was born at 35 weeks 6 days and weighed 5lbs 14 oz.
  • Monster was born at 37 weeks 3 days and weighed 6 lbs 8 oz. I was scheduled to be induced at exactly 38 weeks.
  • My water broke with both of them and I was not dilated at all when I got to the hospital.
  • If it was up to me I would have the baby NOW!!! However, I want to keep in her in long enough that she will be healthy. I also don't want to be an inconvenience to anyone, especially Josh or Lori so it really would best if my water broke on a Friday at 2:30 in the afternoon.

I'm predicting 36 weeks 2 days,7.4 lbs. You won't make it to your induction date, and your labour will only be 4 hours. You will only have to push 3 times.
Is that enough?? I could go on for hours!!!

No matter how hard I try I can't be funnier than Lola. I am guessing you have it on Sept. 13 because that is Monsters birthday, and that just wouldn't happend would it? I think then she would wiegh 7lbs 2 oz. Oh wait - don't have her that soon, your gift isn't quilted yet!

I am going to guess Sept 20th (which is my anniversary) and 7 lbs 1 oz, 20 inches long. Will you email me your address I would like to send you a gift...also did you use binki's with your kids?

I'm not going to guess because I'm really bad at that- ok, I'll give it a shot: September 16 (Aidan's birthday) 6 lbs. 5 oz. How random was that? Anyways, I just wanted to wish YOU good luck and I'm so jealous that you're babies come early. Ethan was early because I scheduled an induction and I don't think Aidan would've ever come if they didn't finally take him. I'm jealous! Looking forward to the update!

I'm really counting on the 26th, selfish reasons. 6 lbs. 15 oz.

I am thinking the 24th of sept. Weighing in at 6lbs 14oz. I really would like to see a preggo picture of you. Really I don't think I have seen one with any of your kids. You probably look so cute
