Jump in the Pool!

So, my office started a baby pool, and I thought I would get one going here...


Official due date: November 19th (LMP method)
9 week ultrasound due date: November 17th
19 week ultrasound said BIG BABY
Doc says I'm healthy and doing great
I'm not waddling yet, but I am feeling lots more pressure down there, if you know what I mean... the baby could be dropping a bit.
My poor little fingers are swelling, and I have taken to wearing my wedding rings on a necklace to save myself any unfortunate loss-of-finger incidents.
I have a hair appointment on October 31st, so I am counting on at least making it that far.


And here are the most recent photos, taken this evening:





So, friends and family, here are the rules: choose a date (and a sex, if you dare... my office pool is much more complicated with weight and length as well, but I am not suggesting you buy into such insanity) and put your guess in the comments. If someone else has that date, pick a different one. Maybe by the time I have this baby, I'll come up with a cool prize for the winner :-)

By the way, I will admit that I am impressed that I am so large! I mean, I guess it doesn't look weird on other pregnant women, and I am totally within the realm of normalcy (for the pregnancy, I mean), but dang! When it's your own body, it's a different thing. What I really can't believe is how small my boobs look next to that belly, even though they have taken on gigantic proportions compared to their pre-pregnancy size. What a crazy adventure, huh? It's pretty cool, despite the uncomfortable madness and loss of control. I started to think today that I might be sad when it's all over... *sigh* I am trying to really enjoy these last few weeks of belly jabbing from little legs and arms before I never again feel this baby inside of me.

Okay, sorry for the sappiness... on with the guessing (side wagers are up to you, you crazy gamblers)!

Count me in! I know nothing about birthin' no babies, but I'll say you're going to be a few days late, and have your pup on 11/20/08.

Alright, no hatin' now... I'm going to say, since it's your first, a little later than your date, but before Thanksgiving: 11/22/08

Everyone is guessing later than the due date. Have to admit, my original date with Tony was late Nov and the doc said, how 'bout a nice round number like 12/1 and that was when he was born. So I will wager 11/19 plus born in the evening.....

Tu sais que je serais ravie si le bébé arrivais le 17 novembre, le jour de mon anniversaire, mais j'espère que ce "gros bébé"comme tu dis se décidera plus tôt. En tout cas tu es la plus jolie des futures mamans . Bisous de nous deux

I'll buck the trend and say a bit earlier than everyone else. I'm going to say 11/14, just because I want to give you the hope that this will not go on forever. I hate it when people keep telling me that I will go past MY due date.

I'm going with 11/11 because it's the first date that popped into my head...and I'm going to really out on a limb and say a girl...

Let's say 11/21 since no one has picked that date. I think that just given the sheer number of girls everyone seems to be pregnant right now that you'll buck the trend and have yourself a little baby boy bundle. Can't wait to meet the little one, no matter when he or she arrives!
