Make your guesses!

We had a really busy week around here. There was something up for us every single evening from Sunday on except for last night, so it felt good to just put on sweat pants and relax! We did make it to the mall last night for about an hour where we got a treat and did some window shopping. I was shocked to catch my reflection in the mall mirrors a couple of times - I'm HUGE!! I said this to Erik and he didn't argue with me, so I know it's not just me that thinks I look like a whale already. How can I possibly grow for 6 more weeks yet??

As the due date draws nearer I'm finding myself constantly thinking about whether this baby will be a boy or a girl and when he or she will decide to make an appearance. Several of you posted your gender predictions a few months ago, but let's make it official - just for fun please post your guess for baby's gender, birthdate and weight. (FYI: Micah was 3 days overdue and weighed in at 7 lbs, 15 oz). As a reminder, my due date is November 13. Check out this ultrasound picture of baby's profile at 18 weeks in case it helps :)

Ok, just so you know, you are NOT huge! You have a cute little belly that happens to be growing a baby GIRL!!! yes, I'm guessing it's going to be a girl, so Micah can be a protective sister, and so Taeya has a girl playmate close to her age. I think the baby will be 7lbs, 13oz, born on november 14 (my mom's b-day). Oooh, i can't wait to be right! :)

hello, mistake!!! I meant to say that Micah can be a protective BROTHER over his baby SISTER. *ahem*

Birth date: Nov. 16
Weight: 8 pounds, 3 ounces (they usually get bigger each time)
gender: boy
I am always wrong with this guessing stuff.

My gut is saying boy . . . .although it could be b/c I only know you as having a boy. Due date: 1 day early. And weight: 8 lbs, 5 ounces. If you want almost definite accuracy you should email your photos to Ismetta from Boissevain. Apparently she has an uncanny ability to know if its a boy or girl judging by looking at the mom. She looked at me at 8 months w/o knowing and told me matter of factly I was having a girl. Hmmmm . . . .

Birht hour: 6:09 am
Weight: 7 pounds, 4 ounces
gender: boy

Janelle said...

Birth Date: Nov 14th
Birth hour: 2:30 p.m.
Weight: 7lbs 10 oz.
gender: boy

I thought you were having a girl...but when I look at that pic, I'm pretty sure it's a boy. I knew when I looked at my last ultrasound with Kamryn that she was a girl, because of her face...so hopefully I'm right now too! but i can't wait to find out!

My guess is a boy, November 11, 6:15pm, 7lb 12 oz. What do we get if we win???!!!

well Jamie, I think it will be a girl, because all your siblings were either boy, girl or girl, boy. I guess you will have this baby Nov. 11th, 7 A.M. (we ALWAYS go into labor in the wee hours of the morning, and SHE will weigh in at 7 lbs. 15 oz. mom

girl, 7lbs 4 oz.... born on nov. 4th!!!!!

Drea said...

I think its a girl lol
the ultrasound photo looks like a girl... nto sure why

Trevor and Rebekah said...

I would have to agree with your mom. I say she'll surprise you and be under 7 lbs. You'll have her on the 13th.

ooohhh... I hope you aren't wayyyy earlier than I am!! (That is the greedy me talking) Maybe our girls will share birthdays??? I am predicting Nov 16 ( you were overdue with Micah, right? Not like that means a lot I guess). 7 lbs, 4 oz.
Hey- is there a prize if we are closest?? I know the whole 'whale' feeling. I am feeling it as of this previous week. I think baby doubled in size (or her mommy did!) in the past couple days. SOON IT WILL BE OVER!! I am pretty darn ready now (it changes every other hour though) for baby to come.
Either way though, James, your baby is gorgeous! I love the ultrasound profile shot you got. A perfect little miracle!!

The Kincaids said...

Hey Jamie- I have had so many ultrasounds- checking the gender, etc. just send me some more photos of baby #2 and I may be able to determine it's gender if they got the right positioning!! My last (hopefully) ultrasound is this Wednesday (I am just waiting to find out they were wrong and SHE is actually a HE!!)

Ej said...

I am going to go with Boy, 8lbs 3 oz, and November 10th.

Gord and Andrea said...

I think that you are going to have a baby girl weighing in at 7lb. 6 oz. on November 15th.

Kirsten said...

Ok, I think a NBF (aka New Born Female) Sometimes in the hospital we have nameless babies we look after so they are either NBF or NBM (we sound it out and say that out loud. Wish I could do a voice animation on here. Would be fun). So...yes, a girl born on November 15th at 0822 weighing 8 lbs 3 oz. I can't wait! Oh, and a side note. I need to get your phone number. I was in Abby and had few hours to waste before driving my Uncle to the airport. I was thinking it would be fun to phone you up and see if you were available. Can you email it to me? kirstendeanne (at) canada (dot) com. Thanks. So I have already won one baby poll last month, so I feel ready for this one!

Lori said...

Heather said...

Hi,
I think you'll have the baby on Nov 15th, a baby girl, weighing 8lbs, 2oz, 21 inches long ,around 11 PM.
Erin is right. The second baby usually weighs more. If you have the baby on the 14th, he or she will celebrate his or hers birthday with Prince Charles. JUst a little trivia.
Take care,
Bertha
