Baby Pool Contest

UPDATE: Congrats to Sarah S. whose guess of June 30, 8 pounds 1 ounce was pretty darn close! (Right answer was June 29, 8 pounds 0 ounces). Sarah, keep an eye out for your jam and vanilla. Enjoy! And thanks to everyone for playing!

My parents had a great idea--I should run a contest to see who can guess when Baby Levin will arrive. I'm currently 39 weeks and one day pregnant, meaning she will definitely come some time between now and July 5th. The midwives really don't want you to go longer than two weeks after your due date, so they'll induce me on the 4th if she doesn't come on her own.


So who wants to play a fun game? Guess when baby Levin will arrive and how big she'll be. To sweeten the pot (literally), I'll provide the winner with a jar of freshly made strawberry-rhubarb jam, and a bottle of homemade vanilla extract!



  • PRIZE: One jar of homemade strawberry-rhubarb jam and one jar of homemade vanilla extract
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with your guess of when baby Levin will arrive (between June 14-July 5) AND how big you think she'll be (e.g. 7 pounds 3 ounces)
  • NUMBER OF WINNERS: One
  • PRIZE SHIPS: Anywhere in the world
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Saturday, July 6th or when Baby Levin arrives (whichever comes first)
The commenter with the closes guess wins. In case of multiple right guesses, one winner will be selected using random.org. Good luck!

  8. As your father I am thinking that June 21st will be the arrival date of my first granddaughter. It is possible since she is a girl that she could be running a bit late, however. Regardless I will take her whatever day or night that she arrives. We are all so very anxious, as are you I am sure.
    Enjoy your nice quiet Shabbos together as it may be the last one for just the two of you. Ho weird is that/
    Love,
    Dad

  10. john alexander says: sometime between 2100 02 July and 0400 03 July. Also, if I don't win, i still would like to get (buy) some vanilla extract. 4 important principles I live by: 1) butter makes everything better, 2) there is no such thing as too much diet coke, 3) a little more sugar is always a good idea and 4) double the amount of vanilla in any recipe and if the recipe doesn't call for vanilla, change the recipe and then double it.

    1. I LOVE these rules! I'm not big on diet coke, but the rest of the rules I can definitely get behind :)

  11. Since you presented yourself 2 days late, I will predict the same for little Aimee Jessica. So, June 22nd is my guess. 7 lbs. 6 oz. Can't wait (but I will)

    Love,
    Mom

    Pam is guessing June 23rd, but doesn't have a weight guess (I forgot to ask her).

  12. I predict Baby Levin will be born on 25 June around 0800 and weigh 7 lb 9 oz. :)

  13. As a completely random person who stumbled upon your blog whilst looking for recipes for rhubarb jam, but with a son born on June 20th, I'm going to say - June 20th at 3:45am and 8lbs 6oz!
