Contest: Guess Kid B's Birthday, Win a Gift Card

I wanted to do some sort of giveaway to say thanks to my tens of fabulous readers for putting up with me and offering much-needed advice / support in the comments section. I enjoyed participating in other-Laura's contest before her adorable son Oliver was born (even though I am NEVER EVER RIGHT), so we are going to play the same game here.

Come closest to guessing Kid B's birth date and time, and I will send you a $15 gift card to either Target or Starbucks (your choice)!

Here's the relevant info:


  • According to the doctors (based on the early ultrasound), I am due August 8


  • According to my math (based on LMNP and nookie lining up correctly), I am due August 19


  • I forget what she measured at the 20 week ultrasound, but I remember it resulted in a due date right in between the 8th and 19th


  • My doctor always half asses the belly measurements, and I am fairly confident she just says whatever measurement lines up with the week. She told me I was measuring "just right, 32 weeks!" when I was at my 34 week appt, and then got flustered when I pointed out the discrepancy.


  • I went to a different doctor in the practice who seemed to ACTUALLY be measuring my belly, and she said I was measuring right at 38 weeks at my 38 week appointment.


  • I am 2cm, 50% effaced as of yesterday


  • Adriana was born 2 days early


  • I was born 2 weeks early (I am my mom's second child)

Please make sure you include both date and time in your guess, which gift card you'd prefer, and include an email address if it's not on your blog or profile.


Contest ends Monday at noon (Ohio time) or as soon as I post that I'm in labor or have given birth, whatever happens first!

As much as I would like it to be on my birthday, I'm going to guess August 3rd. I'll go with my own leisurely time of birth, 11:30 in the AM. I'm going to Wikipedia "effaced" now.

Oooh, FUN! I am going to go with my own birthday, August 7, at 5:30pm. I would choose the Starbucks card since I don't have a Target in my neighborhood (woe!). My email is my screen name at Gmail.

Thinking happy birthing thoughts for you!!

I love the "half-assing" thing! I had an appt with not-my-usual-OB when I was pregnant with TWINS---and he measured me and said I was just right for the week I was at. I was NOT AT ALL right for the week I was at, considering he then listened for only ONE heartbeat and was startled when I asked about the other one. So he apparently thought it was just fine to measure 36 weeks at 29 weeks, or whatever it was.

I guess August 12th at 10:05 a.m.

Darn it, I got so caught up in my anecdote, I forgot to say which gift card. Target!

Ooh how fun!! I'm guessing August 15th at 7:30am. And, Target would be just lovely. You can go ahead and put it in the mail since I will be winning. ;)
