Last night Karen and Patrick both said that they thought he’d come in January so I thought I’d go ahead and set up a “baby pool” for people to make guesses.
Some background info:
-Only 3-4% of babies are actually born on their due dates.
-Most first-borns are born after their due date.
-Jason was born 3 weeks early, for no apparent reason.
-I was born about 1 ½ weeks early – my mom had preeclampsia and they had to induce. In an interesting side note, our due dates are almost the exact same. She was due somewhere between 2/21/80 and 2/23/80 – I was born on 2/13/80. Luke is due on 2/22/10. Potential for a big 30th birthday present to me? You decide. :)
-The due date is on a Monday. According to a study I found, the most popular day for babies to make their entrance is Wednesday. Sunday is the slowest day.
-According to one study, the average weight of a newborn is 7.5 lbs, and the average total body length is 19-21 inches.
-I was 6 lbs, 3 ounces and 18 ½ inches long.
-Jason weighed 7 lbs, 9 ½ ounces and was 20” long.
So, now it’s time to make your guess! There will be a fabulous prize (to be determined later) for the winner. And ps – if you get the sex wrong, you have serious problems.
