Guess Baby’s Birth Day & $25 Amazon GC Giveaway!

Okay, so we know I’m going to be having a baby boy and his arrival is just around the corner.  For my daughter, we had fun with our family and close friends guessing when she would arrive.  They donated in and whoever won would split the money with Rissa.  Of course it was all just for fun, but I learned I definitely cannot set up something like that with you, dear readers.

Apparently birth betting pools are technically illegal and are especially a no-no online.  I sorta had a feeling so I made sure to look it up first before deciding what we could do to have a little fun and let you guess.  So, I’m sponsoring a prize that will be randomly awarded to anyone who makes a guess using the Rafflecopter form below.  You do NOT have to be right to win.  (Though I might come up with something special for whoever is right… we’ll see!)

The giveaway will be open from now until I give birth – so that means it can end at anytime.  I hate not giving a definitive end date, but once I give birth it’s pretty easy to guess his birthday.  Since I know they probably won’t let me go beyond my due date, the giveaway will end either when I give birth or on December 6th, whichever comes first.

You may ask questions in the comments if you think it might help you guess.  To enter you must guess!

Some information you might want to know: I’m due December 6th, I had my daughter 10 days before her due date, I’ve been having some contractions, I’m 1-2 cm dilated, and I’m nesting!

If you happen to be wondering why I haven’t shared any of his ultrasound photos… it’s because none of them have been very good.  We received much better (and clearer!) pics for Rissa.  Kinda bums me out how horribly blurry these have been.  I’ve seen him decently clear on the monitor but what gets printed out is just a gray blob.

You can also read through my weekly pregnancy journals and Rissa’s birth story.

Good luck and let’s have some fun! I’d love to hear why you think the date you pick will be the day, but it’s not required to explain your choice.

Absolutely no obligation but for those of you who are/were interested in gifting something towards the baby or Rissa – I have a few things on our Amazon wish list (including gift cards).  Thanks!

    I think he’ll arrive the day after Thanksgiving – Friday, November 23rd. Because babies like to arrive when mommies have plans to do anything else … like on the biggest shopping day of the year.

    I think you will have the baby on Dec.5th. Guessing this just because I gave birth to my kids one day before each of their due dates.
