Baby Pool/Poll and previous stats

I made an account for a baby pool.  You can enter your guesses on when the baby will arrive, how much he'll weigh, and how long he'll be.  You don't have to sign up for anything, and your kids can guess too if they want.  It's always a lot of fun and silliness.  :)  The link is in the sidebar, or you can click here.

You lose a lot of points if you put the wrong gender, so choose carefully.  We are 99.9% sure that he is a boy based on the ultrasound pictures.

Some interesting facts from previous 7 pregnancies (to help you with your guessing):
  • All of my babies have arrived before their due dates.  Micah was the closest to his.  He was also the only child I had an "early" ultrasound (the most accurate).  Zeke is a whole different story.
    Micah due 7/15 born 7/11 (4 days early)
    Eden due 4/17 born 3/29 (19 days early) 
    Caleb due 1/24 born 1/14 (10 days early)
    Josh due 9/15 born 8/31 (15 days early) 
    Malachi due 6/12 born 6/2 (10 days early) 
    Tirzah due 4/28 born 4/21 (7 days early)
  • Zeke was due 10/31 but the ultrasound he measured 10 days ahead to be due 10/21 (this baby also measured 10 days ahead).  A second ultrasound put him due 10/17.  He was born 10/12, that's 19 days before his "calculated" due date. 
  • That's an average of 12 days "early".
  • In order, my babies weighed:
    8lbs 4 oz
    7lbs 5oz
    7lbs 15oz
    8lbs 5oz
    7lbs 5oz
    9lbs 0oz
    8lbs 4oz
  • That's an average of 8 lbs.
  • Lengths (in inches):  20, 19, 20, 21, 20, 19.5, 20.5
  • That's an average of 20 inches.
  • As far as time of day goes:  11:02am, 6:41pm, 12:05am, 5:44pm, 5:54am, 5:17am, 2:54am. 
  • 4 of 7 arrived in the middle of the night/early morning.
Happy guessing!  Thanks for playing.  :)
